We’re 2 today!

Can you believe it? I Want Cake is 2 today! Time really does fly. I remember our 1st Birthday like it was yesterday. A lot of hard work has gone into the past 12 months, but I'm really pleased with how the business has grown and our increased popularity as we win over the hearts of many. I Want Cake has had the pleasure of making some amazing cakes for the loveliest of clients, and I can't wait to see us make more.  Thank you to everyone who has supported... Read the Rest →

 

A step back in time

I've been so busy between work, cake work and social events that I've not had the chance to show you some of the cakes that I've made. Lets have a quick step back in time so I can show you! Our most recent cake, was a Tinkerbell themed cake and cupcake tower for a 5th Birthday. The client was so delighted with the cake that they left rave reviews on our Facebook page. Here's a snipped for you: "This AMAZING Tinkerbell cake was made for my daughter's 5th birthday party... Read the Rest →

 

Our First Market Stall

It’s probably been a year since the thought crossed my mind that I Want Cake needed to get to the markets. In fact, looking back through the I Want Cake facebook posts, you’ll see a post asking which markets we should participate in…but as is more than often the case…time passes by so quickly and we get caught up in the rollercoaster that is life….So we are a little guilty for not getting out there sooner. In fact, it took an encouraging push (and slightly more suggestive shove! haha) by... Read the Rest →

 

The ANZACs

ANZAC Day – 25 April. For those of you across the vast spans of water, ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. It marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War, and is a national day of remembrance where Australians pay their respects to those who died in the war. Most of us will be familiar with the Anzac biscuit. A deliciously sweet (and moreish) biscuit made using rolled oats, flour, dessicated coconut, sugar, butter, golden sy and... Read the Rest →

 

Who’s with me?

Hello World! It’s been so long! Yes, I know, I’ve been bad. I’ve been neglecting this baby of mine L I am sorry. For some reason in the past, every time I’ve come to write something for it, I’ve struggled to put pen to paper (or should I say fingers to keyboard?). It’s like writers block, only this block is so massive, I feel like I’m trying to dig a hole through Mt. Everest with a plastic spoon. I’ve been thinking long and hard about this blog, only to realise... Read the Rest →

 

You’re just too pretty, revisited.

No matter how big or small the cake is, or the size of the order, I always wait with great anticipation (and anxiety) to hear back from clients after the event. All the time and effort becomes 'worth it' when you hear how delighted a client is with what you've made them. It becomes doubly better when you're sent photos of the cake during the event! One of our Brides from 2012 sent these beautiful pictures to me, so I thought I'd share them with you.    Thank you Anita... Read the Rest →

 

Christmas at I Want Cake

Christmas is my favourite time of year. For me, the best part about Christmas is the chances it brings us. It’s a chance to pass on a little cheer to those around us and show that we care. It’s a chance to give to those less fortunate. It’s a chance to make someone smile, a chance to let people know you’re thinking of them. It’s a chance to say ‘I love you’ and ‘thank you’. But best of all, it’s a chance to celebrate with the people you hold dearest.... Read the Rest →

 

That’s not a cake!

It was a good friend Macca's birthday no long ago and his idea for his cake is the most unusual (and unique!) we've had to date. Macca's a big fan of beer. Constantly on the prowl for the latest and greatest, you're sure to see his daily posts on twitter. So when Macca asked for a beer cake, I was happy to make him one but a bit sceptical on the idea. Beer cake? Seriously? How am I supposed to make cake taste like beer?! Luckily enough, the specs of... Read the Rest →

 

Fit for a Princess

Today’s feature is a sophisticated wedding cake with ruffles and a giant sugar rose fit for any princess. Created for a wedding held at La Montage, a sophisticated yet contemporary function centre that overlooks the sparkling waters of Iron Cove Bay. Beautiful white-on-white details and subtle touches of purple come together in a princess-inspired cake that has us swooning. Filled with chocolate mud cake and couveture ganache, one bite, and you’ll be hooked. The white fondant is perfectly polished, creating an ultra tailored appearance. The cake’s appearance is then soften... Read the Rest →

 

A Plumber and a Princess

I can't believe it has been a year since my sister and brother-in-law got married. Someone must have stolen some days out of the calendar, because seriously, it feels like the wedding was just yesterday. Their reception was the perfect blend of class, elegance and geek with the latter mainly coming in the form of a cake! Check it out… So being the cake fanatic that I am, what else would I do but recreate the top tier for them one year on? It goes with tradition and at least this... Read the Rest →
