Up to date................

OK- if the occasional email from regular blog readers wasn't hint enough to get on track and up to date with my blog- being reminded face to face was a definite kick up the behind to get cracking!

Last week was a whirlwind... with the cake season warming up- I was getting back into the swing of business for sure.
The last weekend in January had me making some old favourite designs- but with a twist.

The first was the beautiful cake-labeled "Cream dream" on my website- but instead of the cream roses- lovely soft pink roses filled the top tier and petals filled in the channels.
Soft and pretty- feminine yet elegant. Sitting in the table in the stunning Long Room at Customs house- this cake looked everything the bit "Wedding".

I don't know if I am a sucker for pink, but I think I might love this version a tiny bit more than the original.

The next cake was for a 21st at Mt Tambourine. Jaffa Mud cake layered with Grand Marnier Ganache- iced in Whipped white chocolate ganache- and then decorated with white chocolate! A dieters nightmare! It amazes me the power of word of mouth- this cake being no exception. I got the job from another client who passed on my details to this client. Then the friend of this cakes recipient passed on my details to another Wedding client- raving about the cake she had just eaten on the weekend- and the Wedding client had already booked to see me on recommendation through another person! (Did you get all that??- because even I am confused reading it back- and I lived it first hand LOL!!!)

Anyway- the moral of the story is that the cake made an impression for sure! It also had fresh fuchsia pink roses dotted throughout the design. The roses matched the sugar "Emma" perfectly- and I had painted the name well before I collected the roses.

Last but not least was a last minute addition to my baking list last weekend.
An early morning call on Monday- had me taking an order for the Debbie Brown inspired Stripper cake.
Hollywood themed Black Fuchsia Pink and Silver- I altered the design to suit.

The Fuchsia Iced board made a real statement on the design- with the little hats coated in Disco Glitter to make them sparkle.
I got to see the clients reaction first hand when I delivered the cake! I love that! Seeing clients genuinely excited about your creation is wonderful!
