MOST EXTRAVAGANT CAKE
Runner up: This gold coin we made for the Royal Australian mint was bigger than Ritzy herself
Winner: Antony designed this cake for fabulous events planner Antony Del Col , and was by far one of the most extravagant cakes we have made for a long time, complete with gold trim and mirror ball. Just fab.
BEST ANIMAL CAKE
Runner up: Okay this was a seriously hard decision as both of these animal cakes by Margie were absolutely mind-blowing, but I've decided to give second place to this super-groovy chamelion while.....
Winner - goes to these more realistic than real-life puppies made as one very special wedding cake.
BEST CHILDREN'S BIRTHDAY CAKE
Runner up: this one nearly made it onto my best Madhatter list but I made a last minute decision to put it here instead. I love everything about this one, the shape, the colours and those figurines. I can't imagine anything I would have loved more as a five year old.
Winner: this hand-painted African themed sunset cake just takes the cake in my book.
Runner Up: just moo cute!
Winner: We were well and truly bitten with True Blood fever this year and Adam's halloween themed cupcake is one of the coolest I've ever seen.
BEST GROOVY WEDDING CAKE
Runner up: To me this one really sums up our philosophy of a modern take on classic elegance
Winner: Clean, simple and fun this wedding cake was a winner
BEST 'EEEEUWWWW' CAKE
Runner up: So real it makes your eyes water
Winner: We were all a bit dubious when Antony first showed us the colours he was planning with this one, but we were pleasantly surprised (while Antony remained pleasantly smug) at how fab this pea-green and coral look together.
BEST SEA-THEME CAKE
Runner Up: I realise this is not your standard category but we just had so many cool oceanic cakes this year I couldn't help myself. This unique cake was created for the wedding of a couple who met while working onboard a ship.
Winner: This cake from last week was just jaw-dropping
BEST ANIMAL FIGURINES
Runner Up: Margie hand-carved, painted and airbrushed each one of these figurines over a number of days.
Winner: This ballsy bovine was just hillarious
BEST HALLOWEEN CAKE
Runner Up: Anna Maria combined her love of shoes with the halloween spirit for this birthday/halloween cake
Winner: I LOVE Antony's Tim Burton-inspired halloween cake we made earlier this year.
Runner Up: Unashamedly self-confessed Treky Margie rose to the challenge to create a realistic Starship Enterprise complete with Mr. Spock and crew
So that's my faves from the year gone, but I would love to hear from you guys if you think there were any standouts from the year that deserve a place on our annual wall of fame!
