We had a great week at Planet Cake last week; I hope that you did as well, AM is on holidays but the rest of the team was rearing to go. It has all been about Melbourne this week, the guys were busy and as a special treat we had Fran McGregor up from Melbourne up for training. It was fantastic having Fran here working as part of the team, she was able to really lend a hand with a few cakes, apply her flower making skills and kept us all laughing, I am personally extremely excited about the success of our courses in Melbourne and thrilled to have Fran on board.
Our other Melbourne moment was a wedding cake for Melbourne AFL Kangaroos player Jess Sinclair and pop singer Chantelle Delaney. We made the wedding cake with a fair amount of skepticism, but he did a gorgeous job and Antony and I love it as it was designed to match the bridesmaid’s dresses, say no more! The latest update about Chantelle is that she has broken her finger and dropping a dress size for the big day check out the age for further important info http://www.news.com.au/heraldsun/story/0,21985,24889285-5012974,00.html
The cakes this week were really good; I would like to pass a special compliment to Jessica for her fine work with your funky twist cake, you work is really coming along Jess! I would like to thank Fran for her awesome hydrangea making and application, transforming the Hydrangea cake into a delicate jewel. However the cake of the week was without a doubt, Margie’s Pat the dog, Pat is a special dog in that she lives in country NSWand has won numerous prizes for her dog races and trials, I think Margie did such a fabulous job of not only replicating her but bringing her to life, but that’s the magic of Margie’s work!
