In comparison with some of the seriously epic cakes of late, this week has been getting a little quieter. With wedding season well and truly behind us, our focus turns once again to our third annual Basics Marathon. Each year in June we run the entire Basics series back to back, followed by the Novelty Marathon in August. Those students who complete all ten workshops in the Basics series are awarded with a very special Planet Cake certification and some of our greatest teachers and decorators began life here as humble Basics 101 students. Before we jump head first into said marathon on Tuesday, we wound up our week with a very special workshop in aid of the Japan Relief Appeal. A very big thank you to Ritzy, who was the brains behind the concept, and to all of those who helped make the day so very special.
Now I would never leave you hanging without a sneak peak into the kitchen, so here's a look at what the guys have been cooking up. Not too shabby for a quiet week.
As someone whose birth date falls just between the cracks of Gen-X and Y, I must admit, I have a very soft spot for the rubix cube. I fell in love with this one in the show room this morning.
