It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here, and I'll be the first to admit that I have been sneaking fruit cake into the office and poking around the Secret Santa's trying to guess who got what (I think I have a bottle of vino!). Paris decided to go mega-tach-a-rama with the Christmas tree this year - and is even threatening to make an appearance in a Santa suit!

Added to all this Christmas excitement was the Kids Xpress event on Tuesday. While there were some seriously sleepy heads by the end of hte day, we all just had hte best time! As part of a charity drive for Kids Xpress we hosted a HUGE cupcake challenge at Fox Studio's where four teams competed to make the best 100 cupcakes in only an hour and a half. NRL celeb's Mario Fenech, and Rooster's Shaun Kenny-Dowall, took to cupcake decorating like ducks to water....a new career perhaps? The winners took out our cupcake trophy - yep, made from real cake, which luckily withstood the heat of the day. Most importantly though, a lot of money was raised for a very worthy cause, and after all that's what Christmas is really about.

As per usual, every time we host a big event, withut fail it falls in a super-busy week and this was no exception. We were just CHOCCA's with cakes this week, and even Emma donned her decorating hat for the week. You may not realise it, but our admin guru is aslo a whizz at decorating AND with an ever-present smile -the total package!

Before I head off into the Christmas Party weekend (I'm sure many of you too are looking forward to some Christmas cheer this weekend!) I just wanted to share some photo's of Linda's Springtime class from last week. Hands down, these are some of the best cakes I have seen come out of a class in a long time.
