Festive Sensations!

The last week of November was HOT! not just in temperature- but some smashing cakes too!

First stop for the week was at the ever gorgeous Restaurant Lurleens at Sirromet! I Love going to Sirromet- the venue is gorgeous and Kylie and Marie Louise are just wonderful!
This cake was for a Friday Afternoon wedding- and when I turned up at around 3pm- the lunchtime festive party goers were still in full swing.
Bringing a cake to a restaurant is like lighting a huge beacon that says- "come over and point your finger really close- whilst oohing and ahhing" LOL!
Although the cake was being set well out of the way of the leaving traffic- it seemed though that it was a destined detour for most of the Merry folk as they left. I felt for Kylie as she tried to keep curious onlookers away from the cake, as harmless as their intentions are, after a few drinks you almost need to remind the viewers to "look with your eyes" as you would do with a toddler in a department store.

All jokes aside- this cake smelt better than it looked! the warm temperature really made the chocolate scent carry through the venue!
A tower of mini cupcakes in varying shades of butter cream icing- complete with a cute couple on top. Such a fabulous couple too! Congratulations Emma and Scott!

Saturday meant a huge day of deliveries for me!
First stop was the Stamford- where I delivered this Damask finish cake.

The icing bow was coloured to match the Bridesmaids dresses, complete with edible brooch- it was elegant with a vintage feel.
After this picture was taken I finished the sugar ribbons with some luster- to really give them a satin look- Stunning indeed!

Matching the event colours to the cake is a common request- and this next cake had the draping coloured to match in with the bomboniere ribbon detail. The dusty blue colour was also extended to the centers of some of the sugar roses too! Congratulations to Daniella and Jon!

This particular weekend also had me headed over to Michael's Oriental at Sunnybank to deliver this next cake.

A design that I do reasonably often- Classic Pretty- beautiful!

I also had a cake go to a private home wedding at Stretton- this two tier version of the Skeleton leaves design was a twist on the original cake.

Last but not least for the weekend were some cupcakes for Victoria Park!

A simple black and cream design- that was finished with fresh flowers later on.

That rounded off a big November for me!

Now all I need to do is blog about December and 20o9 is all wrapped up!

Thanks for Reading

Hi I love your cakes but I wondering if the damask finish on the cake is using a stencil and royal icing and a brush? It looks beautiful.

Hi Annon
Yes the damask pattern is a stencil.
