Hi, I have a customer who has contacted me and wanted me to ship one of my cakes to her in North Carolina but I do not ship internationally icon_sad.gif - I am based in Australia.

I was wondering if there is any novelty cake decorators who are located not far from Fayetteville, North Carolina.

If you are interested in getting some work, please let me know. icon_smile.gif

The theme for her party is boxing - she was looking at this cake below from my website firstly and then asked for a Boxing Ring with the gloves in the middle.

If you up for the challenge - let me know and I will put her in contact with you. icon_razz.gif

Cake is for 12th December BTW!

Hey Kimberley,

Thanks so much for replying, I was starting to worry that there was no decorators in the area. I have passed on your details.

Best wishes,

I'm too far away, but I couldn't make one up to the standards of yours anyway. You did a FABULOUS job on it.

Whats really strange is that was the 3rd request this week - earlier in the week I had a girl who wanted a 21st cake sent to Las Vegas and another lady from London who wanted the Ferrari cake shipped. I don't know whether other companies ship overseas but I am just not that confident it would arrives safely icon_rolleyes.gif I am sure all the quarantine issues etc would be a nightmare as well !

I am 30 minutes from Fayetteville. There is also a fabulous Pastry Arts School at Wake Technical College in Raleigh. Someone there may be able to help.
