Last order of 2010 and some exciting news!

Saturday, January 1, 2011





Well finally after this post I will be back up to date!

The first is a Christmas pudding cake, but instead of pudding it's delish chocolate mud cake. A few people have asked how I got this shape and all I did was bake it in a pudding basin :P But you could also quite easily sculpt it out of a round cake too. This was quite a rushed cake and I wish I had a little more time to work on the details but overall Im happy with it and think it's quite cute.

Along with the cake went these christmas cupcakes. The snowman is my favourite and inspired by Sweet! Cupcakes and treats, mind you I had an extreamly hard time keeping the glitter off the actual snowman.

And now for the big news! (which some of you may already know about). In about 2 week I will be heading back down to Sydney to be apart of a very exciting cake project to replicate the Opera House which is then to be presented on Australia day. I was one out of 20 people selected from around the country and to say I am proud to be one of the ones with a golden ticket is an understatement! I would love to tell you more about it but quite frankly thats all we have been told! So stay tuned on here and my Facebook page and I will surly update you with all the juicy details.

Lastly I want to say HAPPY NEW YEAR to all my beautiful supporters, friends and family you have truly made 2010 an amazing year for Cupkates. I can hardly believe when I am back down in Sydney for Australia day it would be 12 months since I went to do my 1st cupcake course at PC!

Love to you all,
