If you're into cakes as much as I am (and I do think that they belong in a gallery), you'll know Faye Cahill. Formerly of Sweet Art and co-founder of Planet Cake she has been decorating cakes for 18 years. I got to know her designs a few years ago when someone on a forum posted her wedding cakes. I swooned over her "Love Birds" and "Marie Antoinette" cakes. Alas I was already married and couldn't order one and then I saw her "Circus Tent" cake and thought that it was the cutest kid's cake ever. Until I saw her baby elephant cake.
So when Faye sent me a lovely email offering me a place at one of her classes I was very excited. The class I am attending isn't for a while as it is in August (and I'm making the 3D Humpty Dumpty cake below, how cute is that?) but she did offer to give one of my Dear Readers a place in her Pretty Pastel Cupcakes class on Sunday the 18th of April worth $200! Her workshop is in Dulwich Hill so you'll need to make your own way there (sadly my limo is in the shop ;) ) and it goes from 11am-5pm.
What I am HOPING to make ;)
You will learn the basics of cupcake preparation for smooth fondant icing and develop design, colouring and modelling skills. You will be working with both sugarpaste and flower paste and practicing simple piping with royal icing. After all of that fun, you will take home 12 decorated cupcakes in a stable travel box!
All you need to do is tell me which of Faye's cake designs on her website is your favourite**! Simply add your answer as a comment to the story. The competition ends at Midnight AEST 14th April, 2010. That's right, this competition will only go for a few days but I know there are lots of you cupcake lovers out there! You can enter this once daily. This competition is open to Australian residents only.
The lucky winner is: Trisha of Metford, NSW!
Best of luck!
