Planet Cake Update - Week Ending 14.02.09

Hello Everyone

I hope everything is well in your world, it has been a really sad week in Australia and all our thoughts have been with our friends in Victoria this week as we have seen the fires unfold on the news. Fran McGregor who lives in Melbourne has assured me that communities and survivors are already working together and starting to re-build and go home, it is very uplifting to hear. On a far less dramatic note this week at Planet Cake, Handi & Anna Maria managed to teach 2 workshops.

I attended the opening of ESMOD a French fashion school opening in Darlinghurst in Sydney on Tuesday night. It was a great night, the school itself was fabulous and the opening event was attended by every fashionista in Sydney. Our cake (made by Anna Maria) was at centre stage and cut by celebrity fashion designer Akira Isagowa.

The cakes this week were absolutely sensational, Anna Maria surpassed herself first up was some corporate cakes for Westpac, travelling to Brisbane and Maitland, using a combination of cut-outs for the big cake and edible images for the cupcakes tags, Anna Maria did a great job and the client was thrilled. The double newspaper stack looked incredible, the client was delighted as it was for a 70th birthday and the client loved the SMH. The vegetable cupcakes we so gorgeous I found myself cooing over the cupcakes we made for a Green Grocer, I thought the potato was by far the cutest. Then we moved on to our big cakes this week, both of which made me laugh a lot during the course of making them, Anna Maria did a fabulous job with these cakes, both in the detail and the difficulty, they looked awesome.

After making a few million cakes Anna Maria taught a piping workshop on Friday afternoon, I love the piping workshops b/c the students always get a thrill from all the different techniques AM teaches and how much they gain in such a short space of time.

Have a great weekend everyone, enjoy your decorating. Our new forum and members lounge is still being worked on and should be ready shortly, it is coming!!

It was wonderful meeting so many students this week, thank you for the magic.
