Hobart- how I ❤ thee... the view from my guest room window.

Nadia and Matt's birthday cake

Simple simple. I saw this cake on the internet somewhere (actually I think someone sent it to me and said that they were making it for their partner). When I saw it, I thought of Matt and Nads instantly because Nads always says "pigs arse" and also they are so happy together... like pigs in mud.

So pink gumpaste to make the pigs- I was lazy so I bought unfilled sponge cakes and made a simple ganache. Decorated with chocolate fingers and popped the pigs in.

I love it when a plan comes together. :)

Hello there!

Its been such a long time since I posted something here, but I have been slack. In short, I have been for my honeymoon, had dramas while was there (including a run-in with Hurricane Sandy), more dramas at home, bought a block of land, sold the house and went to France for a wedding. It has been a busy few months but as things die down, I hope that I will be able to post a bit more.

For starters. I'm typing this on my new IPhone5. All the Samsung fans and iPhone haters out there, don't get ur panties in a knot. Apple is my personal preference- And everyone is entitled to their opinion!

And as this is my first entry in awhile, I'm going to keep this short and sweet. I would like you to meet Coco, the latest addition to my wardrobe. As the French say… Voila!

Will touch base soon.

En route to ... Our honeymoon!!

Ever since I was a little girl, I have had an obsession with the United States- not in a weird way, but Dad and Mom always spoke about it and I watched heaps of American shows (and still do). Plus Luke and I are not people who would sit on the beach for weeks on end so we thought we would take this opportunity to head to the United States.

The planned route: Los Angeles, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Boston, New York, Washington DC and the Bahamas!

So excited! And the day is finally here!

Operation Cactus...

Hello - what is going ON!

That's totally what he's saying.

I bought a cactus for my friend Mikey's birthday, and made some eyes. Simple project but unfortunately I like it so much that I don't really want to give it away now! It's such a lovely companion to have on your office table!!

Make one and tell me that I'm wrong! :)

Happy Friday!

Compulsive shopper much?

What started off as an innocent "I'll just pop in here and see what's what" ended up costing me a good $35. And a whole new project.

I was at the Reject shop. I was shopping for pretty paper to make a pinwheel for a birthday card for a special someone (Nicole, this one has got your name written all over it!) and I was somewhat distracted by all the cheap things in there.

First of all, let's talk American candy. They have them. It took everything from me to remember that:

a) I was on a diet; and
b) I'm going to the States soon, so why would I eat American candy in Australia when I can eat American candy in the States. Seriously.

So, I walked through the rest of the shop. Which was a HUGE mistake.


I bought FOUR of them. AND I don't even know how to make homemade candy. I suppose there is no time like the present, but seriously, I need to stop it with these projects!


Hmmm... off to do some research on candy making then! Toodles!
