Cakes, Cakes...oh and more Cakes!

What exactly is the collective noun for cakes? During my research this week I have come across an “obsessive” of collective nouns (yes there is a collective noun for collective nouns) and not one of them concerning cake! While you can have a hand of banana (cake?) a batch of bread and a gluttony of chocolate it seems that no one has yet coined one for our namesake. One explanation I came across suggested that cake has never had a chance to gather into a group large enough to warrant one at all! Call it what you will, but this week I present to you a (Planet) ‘Cake-ophany’ of cakes!

We have been busy, busy, busy here at Planet and it’s beginning to feel a little like Santa’s Workshop with many busy hands and the smell of sugar thick in the air…ah another tough day at the office.

Now for some reason, I’ve been humming John Paul Young’s classic signature hit all week, hmmm I wonder why that could be?!

While love is definitely in the air here in Sydney, we would like to pay tribute to the Spice Girls in Melbourne with some serious Girl Power happening as our Jessica joins forces with Fran and Rouvelee on our third Melbourne trip this year. Those of you lucky enough to have nabbed a place in our October workshops are in for a huge treat over the coming days.

Meanwhile after recovering from a hilarious appearance on Saturday Disney’s Disaster Chef the guys were up to their usual tricks, appearing all over the city, with a book signing at Kinokuniya and Antony leaving a lasting impression on our Capital City at Hotel Realm’s Wedding Gala, while Anna Maria and Vivien held court here with the fabulous Shoe Box and Stiletto Workshop. It was a fabulous weekend, a huge congratulations to everyone involved…watch out Jimmy Choo!

I remember once being told, “have a good experience you tell one person, have a bad one and you tell ten”. This is something that has always stuck in my mind as we are often quick with criticism rather than compliments. Which is why I would like to end by sharing with you some incredibly kind words from a valued client of ours. This is the kind of thing that not only brings you the warm fuzzies but reminds us all of just how much we love living here on Planet Cake.

“I would just like to send you all a great big thank you for my daughters Christening cake. As expected it stole the show and our guests could not stop gushing all through the party.
We have ordered cakes from you in the past, so we knew what to expect, however every time we look back at the photos we can’t help but smile knowing that once again we have made the right decision dealing with Planet Cake.
Since our first encounter with you guys back in 2003, Planet Cake have become more and more popular with celebrities and big name companies, however you have not lost sight of the little people (us) and still care about what is important to all of your clients.
Thank you once again.
We look forward to the next time we need Planet Cake”

So now I put to our fascination of Planet followers to coin a new collective for cakes. Join our hamper of helpers and post your suggestions. I can’t wait to hear what you come up with!

Next week, all the goss from Melbourne, but until then happiness, light and as always cake.
