REALLY great to know there are some Aussies here that we can bounce our ideas off without "offending" - our humour is REALLY unique isn't it? OR is it just me that is WEIRD?? @#$#$#@

I'm at Kurrajong just out of Sydney

Just finished a GROSS toilet cake for my nephew's 21st - BAD TASTE theme - complete with the pile of Playboy mags. Definately won't be posting that one in the galleries!!

All his friends said - EW!! YUK!! but then, HOW COOL!!




LOL yes our humour is a little unique. We sort of are a bit droll but definately a very funny bunch. Love aussie movies. Muriels wedding is at the top.

I can't believe the gathering coming from Melbourne - HUGE.

If any of you are out and about on Thursday Oct 4, around Southgate (say hi to Kath and Kim) or Fed'n Square, Bourke street Mall area, and you see a sea of girls all wearing pink / purple - ONE of them is my baby girl touring with the Australian Girls Choir.

They will be on their way home after touring Tassie for two weeks.

I only have one DD so I miss her heaps! icon_sad.gif


They'll be at the museum on the Thursday and be performing at the museum at 11.00 am on Saturday. icon_biggrin.gif

I haven't been to Airlie BEach since 1988 - yonks ago.

Is it still a pretty calm and relaxed place or has there been some development there?

WE did a diving cruise that started from Airlie Beach - 'twas fun.

OMG Cheryl, me too. I threatened my almost 2 y/o that I was going to list her on ebay and then I thought, nah I'll probably get negative feedback and have to send a refund!!! icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif icon_cry.gif icon_cry.gif

She is in full tantrum mode at the moment and I think all the cakes I am making are giving her a sugar high. She cant get enough of the butter cream. I think I need to put her in BC rehab.

G'day everyone!!

I have been lurking around this site for a few years and have been "borrowing" ideas for cakes from a lot of the talented people here. Anyways, I am finally coming out of the dark and declaring myself as a cake decorating aussie who loves looking at the pictures posted on this site.

Cheers!

Glad to see you are have "outed" yourself
If it is time for confessions, hand up, I initially joined this site to have a peek at others cake for inspiration.

Story of my life so far.... in as few words as possible. Started cake decorating about 26 years ago, (that makes me seem OLD doesn't it) never did it professionally - every birthday my children got a SPECIAL CAKE and a home party with a different theme - I really got into it and LOVED every bit of what others referred to as "too much work" - I saw them take their kiddies off to Maccas for the same boring party every year - well, pleased to say that my "children" are now turning (within the next month) 25, 20 & 18 and they still brag to all their friends about the cakes that their Mum made AND I might add none of them were outstanding by cake decoraters standards - but they were SPECIAL to them and hold very special memories for them. I was "conned" into making engagement cakes for friends, wedding cakes, christening cakes etc in the early 80's when you had to make each petal separately and all cakes were fruitcake covered with fondant with extension work and intricate lace pieces - THANK GOD all that is out of fashion now!! I seem to move from one major project to another - entertaining is high on our social pages and it always seems to be at our house (yeah I love it) and my latest major project is my eldest daughters wedding on March 1st next year (at home of course) Large marquee (we live on 10 acres of rural property in the foothills of the Blue Mountains) and I'm the WEDDING PLANNER, CATERER, CAKE DECORATER, SET DESIGNER, GARDENER, SHOPPERS ASSISTANT AND PERSONAL CONCIERGE!! - but I still find time for CC hahaha! Anybody feel like a working holiday in a lovely country retreat?

Tip for all you mothers of small children - LOVE them and cherish every moment, make time for those special memories. Kids don't need quality time as all the experts keep saying. They just need any time, watching you cook, create a masterpiece out of a lump of fondant... anything! they will remember it and it makes them appreciate your talents (however simple YOU think them to be) No child remembers that they had the cleanest house in the street or the best lounge BUT they do remember Mum making that dinasaur cake!

Did I say .... in as few words as possible? Oh [email protected]#$%T, I think I have been babbling!!

WEDDING PLANNER!!!!!! I just noticed your Membername - OK now your busted, you're on my BUDDY list! I on to you for all my 'wedding' help NOW!

Don't worry about the kids - I could tell you a few of my cake disasters to make you feel better.... like the day an elderly grandmother was babysitting the 3yr old AND the lovely birthday cake shaped like Australia complete with all the hand made Australian Native flowers that I had delivered that morning.......da da darn!! Yep.... you guessed it - a frantic phone call received from her, the little 'darling' had poked his little chubby finger all over the Land of Oz making it look like the Lunar landing!! Her daughter was due home in less than 2 hours and the party was that night - did a mad dash up the road (only a few km's away) and did a quick spackfiller and another layer of fondant - under the blazin sun streaming through a skylight in the kitchen (It was, after all, a cake for an Australia Day birthday!!) My friend never found out about it - until the 3yr old recently turned 21 and was OUTED by his grandfather (recipient of the cake) in his speech at the party. Ha ha! what we do - oh and I could tell you about the time the dog ate the top tier of MY wedding cake or the time the neighbours cat walked over a freshly fondanted cake!! MY - see what you've all got to look forward to !! YOU just got to luv em don;t you!!
