Heavenly Treats


I am planning a birthday party with a 'Pretty in Pink' theme and I'm looking for some inspirational ideas to make or buy. I came up with lots of gorgeous frosted, sugared and iced confections that has left me brimming full of ideas for cupcakes, table settings, balloons, invitations and a heavenly macaroon covered birthday cake from the ever-inspiring 10th anniversary issue of Donna Hay!

Sweet Temptations

I love exploring cake shops and patisseries for dainty treats to serve guests for afternoon tea or after dinner treats. You can also add them to a picnic for two for a romantic touch!. My favourite shops in Melbourne are 'Babycakes by Design' and 'Let Them Eat Cake'. They both do custom made to add that something special to a party.

Happy Days

I spend a lot of time pouring over food magazines and recipe books. One of my favourite things is to spend an entire Sunday morning in bed with the bed piled high with all the latest issues of Vogue Entertaining, Gourmet Traveler and Donna Hay. I love the Marie Claire cookbooks and anything by Bill Granger and Donna Hay. I mark up pages, rip out recipes and plan menus but never can quite find the motivation to ever get round to making them! When I bake, I tend to stick to the old favourites : cupcakes, muffins and butter cakes - everyone loves them and I hardly even need a recipe! However, these are some of the recipes I'd like to get round to making one day!

Donna Hay


My scrapbook would not be complete without paying tribute to Donna Hay who's monthly magazine never fail to inspire me. As a designer, I have great admiration for her artistic flair and creative talents. I believe that Donna Hay has been the leading figure in changing the concept of food styling into the simple, more streamline approach that is standard issue today.
