Planet Cake is creating the worlds largest Opera House cake
for Australia Day 2011 and we need your help!
We have always wanted to make a titanic cake, if only to challenge ourselves and see if we could do it. However we decided to up the ante and not only create a giant cake but a Sydney icon, the Sydney Opera House.
We are inviting 20 volunteers from around Australia to help us make the worlds largest Opera House cake, arguably one of the most difficult buildings to replicate. The cake will be made for Australia Day when it will be presented at an official ceremony in Sydney (TBA)
Planet Cake will close down our kitchen for the construction of this enourmous cake and Planet Cake staff together will our volunteers will be making the cake over an entire week from the 19th-26th January 2011. The contruction of the cake will be filmed and all volunteers and Planet Cake staff will wear special team t-shirts commemorating the event.
Applications: Should you wish to participate in this event as a volunteer you will be able to register from 01/11/2010 and successful applicants will be announced 01/12/10. Formal applications and criteria will be announced an available on our blog form the 01.11.10. We will be taking mixed skills sets from beginners to advanced students and will ask that all decorators have attended a Planet Cake workshop.
We are excited, nothing this big has been done in Australia for some time, if at all!
