  • I made a 4 layer fruity cake. I wanted it to be colourful, but didn’t have any food dye! Used mango for one layer, blueberries for another, strawberried for another and something else. Can’t remember off the top of my head. Also made for some interesting textures in the layers.

  • Sorry, forgot to add photo!!

  • We made a “Messy Cake” for my daughters 4th birthday. She had a party at the Messy Shed in Mornington, VIC – a sensory play centre where they get all messy and have a ball! The cake was just chocolate sponge, I bought black ready to roll icing and fluro food colouring. We then made a big mess in the kitchen literally throwing the icing on the cake :) Lots of paper up on the walls to stop the icing going everywhere.

  • when he was 1, my sons father made a Thomas the tank cake. for his 2 to 5 year birthday cakes it was just cakes from the shop, his 6th cake I made with just a packet cake in the shape of 6. his 7th was made by my mom and it was a tram cake and a number 7. his 8 I made from a packet and had trains on top, his 9th was a monster truck race course made by someone, 10 and 11th birthday were made by other people, and they were the Adelaide tram, and the Adelaide jumbo train. Not sure what will be for his 12th.

  • For my sons birthday last year I decorated the Bulla ready to decorate ice cream cake for one celebration as our guest didnt eat cake. And at another celebration my best friend who is a baker/cake maker made a chocolate mud Train cake.

  • I made a banana cake with all beautiful organic ingredients and covered it with raw chocolate. For my eldest I made paleo single meringue pies, for my other girl I made a pastry pie filled with homemade organic custard and fruits and cheese cakes are always a hit here too.

  • This year I made a cake with Kit Kat and Maltesers.

  • Last year I made my daughters a Frozen cake, a cupcake queen Shopkins cake and my youngest had a woodland themed cake. This year so far I’m making a Monsters inc cake for my 3 year old next month. ????
