Spring 2012

I'm a cold climate person..... I love the cold.  I can eat more, sleep better and I love the rain.  I always think there is something romantic about how after the rains everything is clean and new again.  A fresh start and a beautiful rainbow at the end of every storm.

Idealistic perhaps, but what is life without beauty?

It's been a busy spring season.  So busy in fact, I can only just almost the end of spring, sit down and gather my photos and complete this post.

Firstly some of the cakes coming out of the studio.

Thomas the tank for Kaeden - who's full moon and first birthday cakes were also made by me.
Peppa the pig for lucky little Piper
An uber cool Metallica cake for not so little Banis
A super cute Dora the Explorer for Chloe...who decided at last minute that it was Dora she adored and not Dorothy the dinosaur as first planned!
A ginormous cake modelled on Ritzi's design (Planet Cake) for Russ' Games of Thrones gala, to feed over 100 party goers.
A somewhat smaller party for Rachael, but nevertheless just as cheeky with Stitch making a grand appearance.
A back breakingly high stiletto for Shafiqah's 21st birthday party.  Swish with Louboutins, diamontes, pearls and Givenchy all perfectly themed with a ride in a pink Humvee limo and dinner at Rockpool.
Miss Piggy also made an appearance at Naei's birthday this year!
Sure looks like she'll be loved.  :)
An absolutely awesome Red Angry bird for Rasul.  Was so sad to see this one leave.  I wanted to keep him for myself he was so cute. 
Fun and colourful cake pops for Noon's birthday.  Its nice to be 21 again....wink wink**
Another Thomas the Tank cake for my darling godson Isaac.  This time on a yummy tiramisu cake.  Isaac sure loves his trains!
I also managed to put together an entry into the Perth Royal Show, this year attempting the novelty section with mixed success.   We were also delighted with so many of our students winning awards in the decorated cakes sections as well as the cookery section - particularly in macarons!
Did you see her at the show? 
Talking about pops..
we were also delighted to be part of the Sounds like Summer event this year.  Organised by Toybox international, with proceeds going to the Cancer Council.
It turned out to be a beautiful evening with loads of beautiful people, including current Miss Universe Australia, Renae Aryis.  All who got to enjoy Gage Roads wines, Herb's Faust Food & our summer flavoured macarons in the trademark Cancer Council yellow.
Behind the scenes, we had macarons everywhere!!
 All for a very good cause!
We also put together this gorgeously styled engagement party for Jenny and Kudzai that simply oozed sophistication!
Cake, Macaron towers, Rosewater marshmallows, mini cupcakes and cake pops made it onto the cake table.  It was just like a page out of Style me pretty!
After all that hard, hard work.  I decided that I definately deserved some R&R and so, I finish this post off with the stunning unspoilt beauty of Monkey Mia.
Hope you all had an amazing season too!
