Marcus and Tracey

Working with Marcus and Tracey on their wedding cake was an absolute pleasure!

They were after a classic design with vanilla buttercream and fresh flowers.

The bottom tier was coconut with lemon infused buttercream and the top tier was chocolate and mocha buttercream.



Wishing Tracey and Marcus every happiness for the future.

Gemma and Chris’s Dessert Table

It was a pleasure to plan and style a dessert table for Gemma and Chris’s wedding at Milton Park.

The monogrammed cookies, also by Alison Lawson Cakes , added a stylish and personal touch to the table!

Mongrammed cookies

Swirly meringues are one of my favourite gluten free treats, and feature widely on all of my dessert tables.  Meringue takes on just about any colour, and  I think this was my first time swirling with ‘mauve’!

The cute  chalkboards made a very sweet addition to the table as dessert labels!

Gemma and Chris’s guests were truly spoiled with so many delicious offerings.  Other treats on the table by Gumnut Patisserie in Bowral included:

   Mini white chocolate cheesecakes with tinted mauve ganache

Mini white chocolate and berry mousse cups

Mini lemon meringue pies

Macarons in salted caramel and lavender and honey

Mini red velvet and chocolate mud cupcakes




Your mouth must be watering by now!  Such a divine line up of sweet treats!

Wishing Gemma and Chris every happiness together!

Rustic Charm for Emma

Another take on my most popular ‘rustic buttercream’ cake design!

I love the hessian and twine detail,

and aren’t those fresh flowers just out of this world?


I am always ecstatic when I hear that Michelle of Affair with George is adding flowers to one of my cakes.  Michelle’s warmth and artistic flair just ooze from her work…one extremely talented gal!

Both tiers were triple layered lemon cake with vanilla buttercream.

Happy 70th Birthday!

It was an honour to make the birthday cake for my father-in-law’s recent 70th birthday celebration.


I thoroughly enjoyed making the edible catamaran, and other ‘sailing inspired’ decorations.

The rippled water effect on the top of the cake was hand painted.

The catamaran was even sailing at speed, as you can see by the wash!

On the inside, there was triple layered chocolate mud with dark chocolate ganache – a firm favourite in our family!




With a little bit of  ’red velvet’ fun too!


Decadent  fruit cake on the top with almond icing and ivory fondant.

A selection of ‘vanilla’ infused cupcakes and ‘red velvet’ cupcakes with delicious swirls of buttercream!

Congratulations to Shenae and Chris  - wishing you both every happiness!
