“My first ever book cake… the recipients are best mates… Travis’ grandparents ordered the cake with a week notice (I usually like 2 weeks) – then just 3 days before delivery, they called to ask if I could please add Matt to the name part of the cake (his mum passed away recently as well so it was important to include Matt!)… they allowed me to make what ever design I wanted.
Everyone was thrilled to pieces with the cake, it had to travel a couple of hundred kilometres (with the grandparents) – the grandmother rang me all flustered to tell me the air conditioning had just broken down in their car, they were worried the cake would fall apart in the summer heat of outback Australia! It didnt of course. Inside is chocolate and vanilla in a checkerboard pattern (my first of that too 🙂 )
All in all I was really proud of what I achieved in a short period of time.”
