2013 has been a year full of opportunity for me to explore my hobbies as well as pick up new skills. I have received an invite from Appliances Online a few weeks ago for a cake decorating birthday event which I had to unfortunately, turn down due to work. I was disappointed as I have never ever took up any baking classes (probably due to high school trauma with tuition..one part of my teenage-hood that I certainly did not miss much!) and also because I doubt I'll have the time at all. So when a work roster change occured, I immediately sent an email to the organizer and confirmed my attendance..had to wake up early on thursday to get to Adelaide but oh wells!
The event was held at Adelaide chocolate school in North Adelaide, conveniently situated near the city. The interior could probably fit 15 participants comfortably and I was eyeball-ing all the amazing cake decorating tools/glitter/ essence displayed on the shelves. We are in for some serious work here! After a short mingling session with the other bloggers, our teacher, Belinda, started running through the basics of working with fondant with us.
Appliance Online is searching nationwide for their official birthday cake and this competition ends on 8th December. If you are a keen baker and has what it takes to blow them away with your creativity, simply create an appliance-inspired cake and upload on facebook, instagram or twitter for your chance to win 1 of 8 Sunbeam food processors! Details are available on their website but do hurry as the closing date is just around the corner!:)
