Hello everyone!  After the week I have had I definitely feel that some pretty cakes are in order!  This magnificent creation by Laduree is awe inspiring!  Perfect for the French Queen herself ......


This delicate confection is so pretty ...


I always love using flowers to decorate cakes .... it just finishes them off beautifully and adds to the whimsy of the occasion ....

Pink and Gold!


I am so loving pink and gold at the moment!  Well actually I have always loved it!  The powder room above is stunning.... I know it is very OTT but you cannot deny it is beautiful and breathtaking.  The balance of gold and marble is perfect and the little posy of pink flowers is perfect!


Then of course there is my favourite .... the Charbonnel Milk and Pink Champagne chocolate truffles ......


Suzanne Kasler style .... she is incredible!



Don't need to say anymore do I?  Chanel pink and gold!



Charbonnel again and rose petals ....


Carolyn Quartermaine's genius never ceases to amaze me ...


and Lisa Vanderpump's pink and gold room is so fresh and light ....


For my 50th birthday dinner I had an "All That Glitters" theme and I loved it so much .... enjoy and I will post photos soon of the cake and decorations ... they were amazing!

Hello again and Happy New Year!  I am so sorry for my so long absence but 2014 was a bit of a challenge in more ways than one however it is a New Year full of excitement and possibilities!


I hope everyone had a beautiful Christmas and a well earned holiday break ......


I found gorgeous wrapping paper and ribbon .... and did the usual traditional Christmas which was so special as we were all home together....




We were lucky enough to have some time at Versace on the Gold Coast and it never disappoints .....








High Tea in Le Jardin ......


So pretty ....



Amazing confections .....




Dinner at Fellini's ....


Alex and his gorgeous girlfriend, Sophie ....
(don't forget to go and see "Unbroken" as Alex plays Louis Zamperini's older brother!)




We also had time in Sydney as Dominic is moving there as he is finished his Bachelor of Fine Arts, Acting .... another one moving far away!  Finally found him a unit but took a lot of time and research ....


The iconic Opera House from our hotel room ...


Dominic took me to dinner at Chiswick in Sydney for my 50th Birthday present! ( have more to show you from the party but will do it in another post!)



Enjoying Chiswick .... the gardens are stunning ....



Georgie and I had tea at the Tea Salon in Sydney .....



This is the most gorgeous setting I have seen in a long time!
So excited to be back and I can't wait to visit all of you soon!
Have a great weekend
