Last giveaway prize pack for 2012...

something I was working on this last week....

I made this cake for my niece's bridal shower. 
It was inspired by a cake class I took with Collette Peters who is awesome BTW...
My niece loved the cake and I had heaps of fun doing it... was a challenge thats for sure especially the cage whiuch I had to do 3 times, finally got it right and was able to transport it with out any breakages... AWESOME!
Bottom layer was dark chocolate fudge cake with chocolate Italian butter-cream and raspberry filling YUM!, top 2 layers were vanilla/coconut  fudge cake with vanilla butter-cream and lemon/passion fruit curd, Double YUM!. both were covered in dark and white chocolate ganache before the fondant was applied which made the cake uber moist and extra yummy! Ya can never have too much chocolate I say!!!

Gum Paste peony with brush embroidery

Saika... click on the picture to find out more
Class is only AU$45 and will be an ongoing class which starts very soon... 22nd October 2012

Saika, which means a flower full of color, came about from my love of drawing faces! I wanted a way that I could work on various ethnic faces and features,  that was more than a sketch, yet not quite a full blown doll. I hated the thought of so many bodiless dolls lying about, so I turned her into a bust!
Saika is approximately 6” tall, when made totally from cloth. 
Angela will teach her sculpting method along with embellishing ideas to complete your Bust.

This is a fabulous class if you want to learn how to do asian style faces and came about from Angela having a heap of spare heads floating around ... so she decided to Dress em up and display them!

hone your skills in sculpting and colouring
find out more here...
there is even an optional kit available which can be found here...

come n join us in whats sure to be a fun class...
why not treat yourself or someone you love... this class would make a fab gift

Facebook Auctions

I have been trying something a little different lately and I have been posting some items on our facebook page as auction items...
this is a wonderful way to try and pick up some quality stash for your creative cupboard for an awesome price!

I set the stage with a photo of the item for sale, give a description then set a starting price... auctions are usually live for approx 24hours only with items not sold being placed on the website at full price... so if something interests you why not place a bid you never know you just may get a great item at an even greater price... winner does pay postage which usually isnt much more than $6.75 worldwide for the fabric packs and can be a little more for heavier items (if your not sure about the postage just message me for more info-I will need a location to work out the best price for you)

here are some samples of what we have sold already and the lucky bidder only paid $20 per pack...RRP AU$50  what a bargain!

Desert Rose SOLD for $20 RRP $50

Blue Silks SOLD for $20 RRP $50
