Well I'm sure there was plenty of weddings area Perth! Beautiful weather Saturday and Sunday plus the extra day off! Awesome!
Here are just a few of the cake orders I had that kept me busy on Saturday and Sunday!

Mixed Bag of Lollies

Last weekend I had a bit of a mix bag when it come to the cakes that had to be made for weddings around Perth... From Elegant Modern to the Modern Japanese infused cake, all in all it was a great week for cakes and I hope that the rain held off for all the bride's over the weekend.

First we will start with my friend's wedding cake. She had a three tier standard stacked covered in white RTR. Baby blue 9 mm satin ribbon around each tier with beautiful white with soft pink centre roses cascading down the front. At the back of the cake was a bit of fun for the bride and groom! I made a leaped skin piece with tattoo inspired hearts, stars and swallows! It was so much FUN!

Next is was for a small wedding, covered in white icing with Burgundy ribbon and a mix of burgundy roses, lilies and orchids with green ivy to highlight it all. Stunning!

This cake is a smaller version of a three tier standard stacked ivory wedding cake. Chocolate pipe to represent the fine cherry blossom tree with shades of burgundy cherry blossoms.

Also here are just some cup cakes for a bit of fun!

"Happy VW Birthday Nat Nat"

Just thought I would share one of the Decorators "Nat Nat"'s birthday cake that she made HERSELF! (Yes like most cake decorators you have to make your own birthday cake).
This was her first ever shape cake and she did an awesome job! Love it Nat!

Its a Mad Hatter Saturday! Tara Style!

This cake was a challenge! I won't lie...
Four tier Mad Hatter, not only was it an awesome shape but it was so HEAVY.
This was a Lindsy Smith design which the bride fell in love with. I followed the design to a tea but it did look a little different as it was my style of decorating so I hope She likes it.

Sorry it's been awhile...

Sorry it has been awhile since I have updated but I went on leave and had a blast over in Melbourne...
Before I left I finished another NEW Showroom cake...


This is a standard 4 tier square, white icing with white roses between the middle of the cake. Delicate pipe work with a pipe monogram to personalize the cake (I love adding special touches to personalize things).

Also I had a few birthday cakes, figurines and also a wedding...

This wedding cake was very classy, two tier square, white icing with blue ribbon with a black think ribbon along the middle. White icing Singapore orchids to finish and complement the cake.

Myself and Hayley received "THANK YOU FLOWERS & CHOCOLATES!"
I love flowers and also chocolates so this was a lovely way to finish off my last week of work before I went away...

Now back in the swing of things... No rest for the wicked... This week I have a few wedding cakes that will blow your mind! Keep your eye out for next week! (Esp when one of the cakes will take two of us to carry).
