The rest of January

Perth had the hotest January on record this year. Heat and chocolate are just not good friends and figuring how to get a 15 kg chocolate ganache covered cake from A to B without it becoming all mushy was very challenging to say the least.

Here they are, sitting prettily awaiting the finishing touches to the ganache...... at this point it was around 38 degrees celsius outside.

First off, was the fabulous occasion of Maree's kitchen tea. Close to 50 lovely ladies bearing gifts, an outdoor patio and bar, filled with lots of food, lots of bubbly and lots of cake, made for the perfect way to spend a Sunday morning!

A pretty design in the bride to be's favourite colour. Chocolate mud cake for the teapot and vanilla cake for table.

Maree REALLY didnt want to cut the teapot! The cake was a surprise for her and so she took the teapot home.

Also on Sunday, Adrian and Siobhan got married and celebrated with a dreamy early evening cocktail by the river at Matilda Bay. The cake looked so very beautiful at the venue I didn't want to leave.

Assembled on site, this massive extended 3 tier cake consisted of chocolate, orange blossom and white chocolate cake, adorned with fresh flowers and finished with a pearl lustre and just a few French dragees.

Here it is from another angle,
The flowers in the backgroung were in 1m tall vases and looked simply stunning. Many thanks go to Paris at Planet Cake for the referal and design. It was a great honour to produce this cake on their behalf.
