Perth Royal Show 2010

Well if you have been following on facebook you would kind of know the journey that I have been on leading up to the Perth Royal Show.

I started by making an "inspiration" board. This was made up from pictures that I loved. I wanted something BRIGHT, OUT THERE and also something to show my love for the MUNSTERS! hehe

Here is what I started with...

I then went with a three tier design... I love odd number tiers for weddings... I don't know why but I feel that "even" numbered tiers in wedding cakes look un complete.

The bright pink, sky blue and the deep royal purple complemented each other very nicely. When I first put the three colours together I wasn't 100%... But when finishing the cake I was very happy and ecstatic. Now while we are on the topic of colour I would like to tell you all one of the disappointments I had in this cake adventure. Lately I have been using the AmeriColour soft gel colours to colour my icing. The reason of this is ONE, I don't mind trying something new and TWO, it was all that my local supplier was selling. While at home and the whole process of making the show cake at home the colours we GREAT! As I said I was so HAPPY with the out come. When it came to the delivery of the cake, 20 minutes by car, 8:30AM, car with tinted windows, I was very disappointed. The colour of the icing faded from BRIGHT to DULL! I have never EVER had this problem to this EXTENT! Yes icing colours do fade BUT they shouldn't fade this much in this short amount of time... I WILL NOT use this brand of colour again... This is so SAD as they do have a great range of colours BUT I can not risk something like this happening again..


With the problem of the colour and also Mr Hurman Munster not waiting to stand straight we finally got the cake to the show.

The amount of SUPPORT, LOVE, POSITIVE ENERGY from all my family, friends, friends of friends, the ladies from the cake decorating clubs, my work and also from people I don't know has been overwhelming! I would like to THANK EVERYONE that has helped me as it has given me more drive to achieve more with my passion of cakes!

I honestly didn't think that my cake would receive 1st prize or even a place at all! When I was told that my cake come FIRST I really couldn't believe it! WOW it must have been something even with the colour fading and My Hurman not doing what he is meant to...

Going to the show on Sunday to see the cake (now with ribbons falling off, looks like the cake has no love or owner) with a giant BLUE ribbon was the best ever feeling! To have my mum, family and close friends to be so proud of me was well worth the hours and stress that was involved with the whole process. To stand in the large crowd and listen to the comments and feedback that was being said was AMAZING! EVERYONE loved how different this wedding cake was.

Thank YOU!

I will be planning and starting my Royal Show entry for 2011 in a few months! EXCITING TIMES AHEAD!

Seth, Mad Moo (Maddison) is very sorry that she couldn't be apart of your milestone birthday but I am sure that if she was well she would of had an awesome time (I am pretty sure that we would have had to take some of those farm animals home!).
