CakesDecor Gazette: Issue 3.03 / March 2014
Hello my Lovelies,
At the start of this year, I made myself a promise….to not let fear run my life anymore and to say yes to every opportunity that came my way…no matter how scary it might seem.
This month I was very fortunate to be included in the crew for the Australian Cake Decorating Network’s Cake Camp in Melbourne. To my knowledge, I hadn’t met any of the people that would be attending, and mostly only knew them through Facebook.
As you can imagine, I was excited but a little nervous. Within minutes of arriving at Melbourne Airport and finding my group, I was in cake heaven! It was a weekend of fun, cake, learning, cake and some more fun thrown in for good measure. I met some amazing people. So much talent and passion for cake and it’s community was an absolute joy to be part of.
The amount of work and organisation involved was mind boggling! I have never seen 45 kilos of chocolate before…I have also never seen 4 huge bakers racks groaning with all shapes and sizes of mud cake. The endless boxes of colours, wires, tools, cutters, styro, boards, bits and bobs were enough to make a caker drool!
Everyone was very sweet to me and I made some wonderful friends and actually met up with a few I hadn’t known were attending. And to think, this time last year, if I was asked, I would have said thank you, but no :(
So if you get the chance to attend a Cake Weekend, Camp, Show or even a class. Go for it! You will not only learn a load of new techniques and skills, you will make some very special friendships which to me, is one of the most special and amazing parts of the industry we are in.
We would love to know what you think and what you would like to see in future issues, feel free to leave your comments below :)
