Ooh la la, love was in the air this week at Planet Cake. Alas no roses turned up on my desk come Monday morning (hey a girl can hold out hope) but our Valentines Day cakes helped to soften the blow a little, not to mention Anna Maria's home-made nougat. Ah if only all men were as sweet as AM's baking...
What happens when you are asked to make a cake for a Vegas-themed wedding on Valentines Day? We weren't sure either and we took to the drawing board several times before we got a design we were all happy with. This cake is the fabulous love-child colaboration from Paris and Antony. The lucky couple were winners of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitor's Authority competition 'How I met my Partner' and the wedding was held on Monday in Sydney's Royal Botanic Gardens. Very cool.
Sigh, I l-o-v-e this one. Channel 7 asked us to create something spectacular for the Valentine's Day edition of the Morning so we created this design, inspired by the fabulous Paper Eskimo Stationary. Yummy vanilla cupcakes baked in Paper Eskimo cupcake holders were finished off with meringue icing and a love heart made from sugar roses. Think romantic meets Alice in Wonderland.
This client is a serious Hello Kitty fan and not only did we create this specially-themed Madhatter for her wedding, but matching Hello Kitty and Daniel cupcakes as bon boniere's. It was goodbye computer and hello Apron for me yesterday as I helped our QLD recruit Danielle ganache and box all 164 of them. A little cross-eyed at the end, yes but I reckon it was all worth while for the end product. They looked A-mazing. Oh yeah, and Ritzy's cake wasn't too bad either.
Last week I showed you a sneak peak of these Funky's, still in the delicate process of creation. Check them out in all their compelte glory this week.
This cake will leave all you fans out there in little doubt that Margie is back in the Planet Cake house, bringing a little inspiration to this awesome cake, from her latest hiking adventure. Check out what she gets up to when she's not making cakes - Margie not only roughs it in royal icing, but in the great wilderness too!
