Week ending 22 November 2009

This week we lived through the hottest days in Melbourne since the Black Sturday bushfires, and it was a shocking and sudden reminder of how unprepared we all are for this summer to arrive on our doorsteps. I realised that we haven't cleaned our gutters since winter, and even though we are in a well populated area, we were only 4kms from the Bunyip State Park fires of last season... and embers can travel far beyond that distance and still wreak havoc... so please, for those of you potentially in harms way, get cracking!

Now, onto cake business!

Two celebrations were completed this week, a wedding, and a 1st birthday. I don't have any photos of the 1st birthday to share with you... yet! I had a photographer come along and shoot the whole shebang, as we supplied not just a cake, but also cupcakes, and yo-yo's, coconut ice, sugar cookies, and petite gingerbread girls... so watch this space for a special post as soon as those photos arrive!

But we still have pictures to share, first up of the wedding of Melissa and Mick. This wedding was held at the beautiful Wellers Restaurant in Kangaroo Ground, with the reception room looking out over a lush pature and valley beyond.

Melissa and Mick chose all chocolate fudge cupcakes and matching cupcakes for their celebration, with white and silver being the predominant theme. After falling in love with my Tiffany butterflies, we switched up the styling to include edible silver hightlights on the white butterflies, and selected white fondant and silver cases to complete the effect.

Flowers to match Melissa's boquet were also added to the display, which were supplied by Rainforist Flowers... beautiful purple Lisianthus.

We have also been working on some new cookie designs. First up are some retro, 50's inspired pink poodles. This cutter is a vintage copper cutter that I sourced from the US. The detailing in the cutter is superb, and these girls are ready to party! Each cookie is 4" w x 3-1/2" h, and colours are customisable to your choice.

Second new cookie is our Skull and Crossbones, presented here in Pirate Girl form! Touches of pink, and a heart for an eye make these a quirky way for your own Pirate Lass to celebrate! Cookies are gingerbread, 3-1/2" w x 4" h.

Next week, we are full to bursting with two and a half weddings to celebrate! (stay tuned next week for the detail on the "half"!)

We will also be launching our next giveaway - and it's a doozy!

See you all next week!
