Week ending 3 November 2009

Whew, here it is November already... the Melbourne Cup has been run and won for another year, and we've now begun the countdown to Christmas!

This week saw a couple of special events come through our calendar...

First up is a Halloween party order for the lovely Bron and her family. Half of the order was for "naked cupcakes" (the client had ordered special deco's especially from the USA for the occasion) in Halloween colours of orange, purple and black. The black was in the foil cases, and the purple and orange came through in the vanilla bean buttercream frosting.

The second half of the order was for gingerbread cookies, deocrated in colours to match. We had three designs of pumpkins, ghosts and bats (not pictured), all decorated with royal icing in purple, orange and white, bagged and tied.

Our other very special order this week was for a Cup Day Cake. The order specified "Elegant Frivolity" with white and silver being the only colour specifics. I think this cake fills the design brief to a "T"!

It turns out that this was a surprise wedding (which I already suspected; how many folks order this sort of cake for Melbourne Cup Day at home?) immediately after the horses crossed the finish line...

We are also busy making hundreds of butterflies for a wedding cake coming up shortly, and finalising our Christmas cookie and cupcake designs... stay tuned for their release on November 15th!

Coming up next week - not much I hope! I have tentatively pencilled in a weekend off to remember that I have a husband and family who like to see me once in a while! But watch this space, as I am sure somthing will interrupt my well laid plans!

Have a great week everyone!
