Good Morning Cakers!

We are heading into the last few days of August and that means it is nearly time for new tutorials for our members and also the end of winter in chilly Sydney!

This has been a huge week on social media as always with lots of cakey stories and techniques doing the rounds. So lets check out the latest…..

2. Make Clouds

3. Personalised Smarties
Want an incredibly fun way to personalise your cakes, cupcakes or cookies? We found this amazing product today. Personalised Smarties!! How fantastic. Totally Australian too. What a great idea.

With Fathers Day coming up it might be time to revisit a few of our previous member tutorials. We have both a cowboy boot and a Beer glass that might be just perfect! If you are not a member, it’s too easy. Just mosey on over to and join us. As soon as you’ve joined you will not only get access to this tutorial, but over 250 hours of other amazing ones as well as over 50 ebooks to download and keep.

Our membership website has been going for about a year and a half now and I think sometimes we forget about some of the earlier tutorials that we filmed! There is now over 100 different tutorials in there and with some of them running up to 5 hours long, that is a whole lot of cake decorating tuition in there for you!
