Published - Melbourne Wedding and Bride - Wedding Cakes Melbourne

Sorry for the delay between posts - a lot of stuff (and I mean a LOT!!) of things have been happening behind the scenes, as well as keeping up with our regular flow of orders... so much to post, but also so much I can't post (well, most of it!) because, well, let's just say, photographers and magazines are involved... and you have to wait for 6 weeks after magazines are even published before you can post things up on your own sites... so the work for the last month or so is going to be a little while before you get to see it - but it will be worth the wait!

But in the meantime, here are some spots we have been seen in around the world wibe web of late:

New ad, Melbourne Wedding anbd Bride - edition 6.2 - available newsagents from July (that's this week - oi!)

Our Alice in Wonderland party was featured on a couple of blogs:

And we have also picked up a "top 50 wedding cakes" award from Larson Jewelers in the US for our Mondrian cupcake tower!

The 2010-2011 Summer wedding season is just starting to get under way, so we will have a few new designs up for you to look at over the next few weeks, and you will be able to come and see more of them in the flesh at a boutique expo we will be attenting on July 25 at Killar Estate inthe Yarra Valley.

Happy baking!

Melbourne Wedding Cakes | Cupcakes | Cookies

Hello!  Such a time has passed since I last posted an update, but it seems like no time at all! 

Here are a few orders that we have worked on in the inerim, including our "wow" party from this past weekend:

First up, a wedding and reception at Lindenderry Estate.  The design brief here was ivory and elegant.

White Truffle Raspberry and Chocolate Fudge cupcakes, topped with ivory fondant over vanilla bean buttercreme, and decorated in two styles - half with the couples initials highlighted with edible mother of pearl lustre, and half with ivory stringwork bows highlighted with edible MOP lustre.

The co-ordinating cutting cake was Chocolate Fudge, with ivory fondant over ganache, and decorted with a sugarpaste plaque with RI piping highlighted with MOP lustre.

All presented on our new, custom cream lace 3-tier stand.

Next up is a wedding held on the Sea Melbourne, part of Cruising Victoria.

Romantic and Pink were the concept behind this wedding, and the bride was taken with our Tiffany butterflies, so we created these for her in ivory sugarpaste, and nestled them on a ground of pale raspberry pink fondant with a trio of ivory blossoms and some RI trailing vines.  Cupcakes were vanilla bean with vanilla bean buttercreme.

Celebrating her 1st birthday, we have an order for pretty, girly cupcakes and maching cake for the birthday girl.

On a custom white and pink 3 tier stand, vanilla bean cupcakes were topped with pale pink fondant over vanilla bean buttercreme, and were decorated with a duo of pink blooms on an ivory RI trailing vine.

The matching cake in Chocolate Fudge, was decorated to match, and trimmed with pink silk ribbon.

And finally, we have our Alice in Wonderland party.  This party encompassed not just any old cake, but a cake worthy of diving down a rabbit hole (even if I do say so myself!).  Five (yep, FIVE whole tiers) tiers in three flavours (White Truffle Raspberry, Caramel Dream, and Traditional Bourbon Fruitcake) were decorated a la Alice in Alice Blue, Queen of Hearts Red, Cheshire Cat Purple, and Doormouse Pink.

Also starring at this birthday event were "Eat Me!" cupcakes, coconut ice, rice krispy treats, baked caramel cheesecake slice, gingerbread "This Way" and "That Way" cookie arrows, chocolate teacup cookies, and vanilla bean cookies with edible images of Alice and the Hatster himself.

Hope you enjoyed the show, we have more designs coming up soon for you - our Marie Antoinette Shoot towards the end of the month, plus oh, another 3 weddings - all incredibly different design concepts - you will love them!

Happy baking!
