Definitely no April Fool

You know what the best part of catching up (majorly) on your blog is?????? The reminiscing that you get to do about all of the beautiful cakes you ave been commissioned to do in the times gone by ;)

The First weekend in April was a very Special one indeed. So many gorgeous cakes to make and deliver- it was one of the weeks that - although I was well and truly buggered by the end- I had a definite sense of job satisfaction and achievement too.

The First cake to leave for the weekend was a three tier cake with a set of personalised toppers. A Variation of my "Team Supporters" cake, this one had the Bride and Groom wearing their favourite AFL football teams' scarves.
It was a good mix of classic, contemporary and fun cakes for sure.
The next cake design mimicked the invitation layout- with a sheer black ribbon and diamante slider to finish around each tier. 

I delivered this cake to the Landing- where the couple added fresh flowers to the top later on.

I headed over to where my own sister-in-law held her wedding reception last August, The Port  Office Hotel's- Restaurant Fix. 

This classic three tier cake with Sugar roses and leaves is a truly timeless design.

A quick trip around the corner and I was at The Royal on the Park to deliver this cake- which Together with Karen from Bliss Floral- we created a pretty two tier version of my Bridal rose design. 

My Next couple were one of the ones displaced by the January Floods, due to their original venue not being able to accommodate a function- seeing as they were still yet to officially reopen. Sadly their original venue- The Stamford Plaza- was so heavily inundated by the floods - that sadly even the April Wedding bookings had to be shifted to new venues. Luckily The Marriott was able to provide the reception for the happy couple!!!
So without doubt at such a beautiful venue- was an equally stunning cake! I LOVE big blousey flowers!! This cake was soft and pretty and everything you would dream for your romantic wedding day :) 


The cake walls were decorated with Brushed Embroidery, that resembled the Bridal gown lace.

The Big cakes for the week were at The Strand and Customs House.
First Stop was Customs House- where this three tier double height cake- which was finished pearl, stood proud in the Long room.  

The Next Big cake was a four tier version of the pearl lines cake. 


Fresh Antique and cream roses covered the top tier of this Grand Beauty.

Last but not least was a cupcake tower.
This cake was collected by the Bride- and she kindly sent me this image of it all set up :) 

"Hi Sarah Jane
Just wanted to say how spectacular your cake was at our wedding. Not only was it the most beautiful cake ever but it was delicious. All of our guests raved and raved about the cake.
Thanks again,
Jasmine and Ashton " 

Well that was the First week in April- as we are moving into the first week in August I had better get myself into gear and catch up... no more excuses :-P 

Thanks for reading!!
