Dirty 30!

Last week was my fiancĂ©e's birthday, he turned the big Three O! :)

I wanted to create him a birthday cake naturally! and this was the first cake I've completed from him in complete surprise! Hidden away behind closed cake room doors!
His only request was it had to be his favourite flavour banana cake with a milk chocolate ganache. Yum!

I had a couple of  different ideas for designs:   a pair of sneakers, loads of his favourite foods piled up. But in the end I went with a banana split cake! 

Everything is edible, the whip cream is just royal icing topped with a cute fondant cherry!
The owner of the restaurant we celebrated at had a worry when he came into the restaurant kitchen to see the "icecream" not in the freezer! :) teehee tricked them!

Heres a tiny picture of my partner cutting his cake with me watching on :)

Mother's Day!

This past weekend was mother's day and I wanted to be clever and give my mum "flowers" so I created this carrot cake with white chocolate cheesecake flavoured ganache to look like a potted orchid plant.

The bamboo orchids are all handmade sugar flowers. Everything is edible down to the cookie crumb dirt which my nephew happily dug into.

Sydney Bridal Exhibition!

Okay so its been a disgustingly long time since I made a post even though it feels like the last one wasn't that long ago, guess I've been somewhat occupied.
The most exciting news first! This past weekend I exhibited in my first bridal expo, the Sydney Bridal Expo at Darling Harbour. Totally nervous, feeling completely under prepared ended up having a really fantastic time chatting to couples about there big day!
Here are a couple of photos of my little booth, we gave out free samples of Chocolate Mud cake and Carrot Cake, along with little baggies with some info inside.

The flyers we designed and handed out!
