Thank you very much for doing such a great job with our cake this weekend - BRILLIANT! You really captured Pat the Dog and everybody at the party was just amazed by it. Most importantly, Anna was over the moon. Thank you.
I thought I would share two photos which I think really capture just how thrilled she was with your excellent work.
The first captures the moment the Cake was unveiled... and the second, well, it speaks for itself.
Off to the outback now... and thanks again.

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.

Happy New Year!!
What a year is has been, the Planet Cake roller coaster ride never stops, so I thought I would pause and have a little retrospective of all that has happened in 2008 before we embark on 2009.
After making Celine Dion’s 40th birthday cake in March, we had the Bobby Gold Smith Bake Off in June as well as our Awards dinner with Handi Mulyana winning Planet Cake’s Employee of the Year. Then I finished writing our first book in July which should be in book stores in March 09(including
We have been incredibly privileged and have all worked very hard to make this all happen. When I reflect I feel very happy about all of the press we have received and amazing cakes we have made however what gives me the most pride and joy is our cake decorating school and 2009 sees us expanding into Melbourne possible other states and hopefully Asia. Cake decorating workshops have continued in popularity and we are constantly updating our curriculum to meet student demands. In 2008 we have had students travelling from all over
Thank you to everyone who worked with me, full time staff, facilitators, part-time staff, supporters, friends, students and valued customers, for believing in Planet Cake and helping us reach some really important goals, most importantly our book and I could not have done it without such a supportive and talented team
