CakesDecor Gazette: Issue 3.08 / August 2014

Hello my Lovelies,

It was with immense sadness and reluctance that I have to tell you that this will be my last issue as Editor of the CakesDecor Gazette. I have made the very difficult decision to admit that I am spread a little too thin to be able to give The Gazette the time and attention it deserves.

I have taken great pride and joy in watching The Gazette grow and was thrilled to be there at it’s beginning. I will still be doing interviews with all your favourite Cake Decorators as I travel around teaching and attending shows. It actually takes quite a surprising amount of time every month and I felt that I was starting to let you all down with the amount and the quality of time I could commit to it lately. The only thing that makes this decision bearable is that I will be passing the baton to my very dear and gorgeous friend, Calli Hopper of Callicious Cakes.

I want to thank you all so much for being such a wonderful and receptive audience. I would also like to thank Michal and Martin for the amazing opportunity and lastly I want to thank my beautiful friend Calli…..I know you’re all in wonderful hands with such a special and talented Lady at the helm.

Have a wonderful month, and please say Hi if you see me somewhere around the world! ;)

Raewyn xx
