Weekly Update 26th Feb

This week's standout cake was certainly a labour of love, just ask Emma who was in here until 8.30pm last night finishing it off. Four magnificent extended tiers hand piped and then painted, finished off with huge sugar flowers. This is one impressive cake, and well worth the effort to see that priceless look on our long-suffering delivery driver, Carlos' face.

This week we made the super-exciting purchase of a brand new camera, as most of us have phones that take better pictures than our poor old one! It took a while to get the hang of it, but I must say I quite like what happened by accident in this one,very arty-like.

This race track was over a meter in length and 30 kilo's in weight, and I have to say, in my humble (yet correct) opinion this is an absolute winner!

Good friend of Planet Cake, Lauren spent two days working with Ritzy this week in our kitchens, honing her skills and I just had to share with you this fabulous bag she made on Tuesday. Souber-realistic I can barely contain the urge to sling it across the back of my chair and fill it with endless old receipts, pens that don't work and half-used lip gloss'!

Last Saturday Antony spent the afternoon adorning this wedding cake with fresh roses (he smell was just divine). With just a bud and a few leaves left over, the cake was absolutely transformed and became the centerpiece for a Renaissance-themed wedding at Sydney's State Theatre.

We all get a little stressed from time to time, and with the aftershock's of last Saturday's full moon still echoing, there were a few tense moments in here this week. So rather than run to the choccie stash (which is far too accessible for anyone's good around here) I decided to take these pictures of a very flexible Ken as a reminder that no matter what's going on, sometimes we all need to take a bit of an Om-moment. The question still remains however, just how or why he landed on my desk???
