I was honoured to take my place amongst Australia’s premier cake artists, stylists and photographers to make my contribution to Australia’s Sweetest Morning Tea. (ASMT) I was paired with the lovely Belinda from Styled by Belle and our work was beautifully photographed by Lee Bird Photography. Our submission is called “Waters Edge Dreamtime”. Rich blues and coppers symbolise our large rugged island nation. Our land made up of lustrous tones of orange earth and our amazing island surrounded by deep blue water. Styled By Belle’s inspiration was to play homage to Modern Australia utilising the textural elements of rock and water. The stunning landscape that frames every vignette is one of true Australian beauty – with sandstone rock walls and a pebble rimmed waters edge.
It’s a rare and beautiful thing to be trusted implicitly with your client’s vision for their event. It is especially humbling when these events mark major milestones in a family’s journey through life. I have had the privilege of creating bespoke cakes for the Vardakis family for 5 years now.. Alex is one half of the talented duo that is Melbourne stylists Avie & Lulu.

I never tire of making these beautiful (if I do say so myself!) blossom booties. I first made these for my eldest daughter’s Christening 6 years ago and have made them several times since. They certainly do make a statement up there on top of the cake and they are also a lovely keepsake. I still have Julia’s. They look as lovely as ever! This is actually a two tier adaptation of that original design.
Made for a family member to mark the Christening oif their little boy, this cake stood almost 16″ high. This towering cake was accented with a little boat which was modeled on the favours given to guests.
This pretty palette of powder blue, pinks and hues of cream set the scene for a vintage themed Christening styled by Melbourne’s Boutique Affairs. It was fantastic to be a part of such gorgeousness and elegance.
