Babies, Persian love cakes, rosewater and macaroons…

Although I was up to my neck in dirty nappies and baby vomit (I had a week alone with the two kids whilst my husband traveled interstate for work), I couldn’t let the day come and go without making a bit of a fuss of Heidi.

Twirling Betty takes the cake

My dear friend of 25 years, and fellow crafty person Twirling Betty was recently contacted by Master Chef magazine to feature her cake buntings. I am not surprised, because they are simply stunning! Now is the perfect time to share with you the talents of Twirling Betty before she becomes famous and backed-up with orders for her cake buntings.

Twirling Betty is the mastermind behind these unique and ever-so-fun cake banners and buntings that will spruce up a cake for any occasion. If you want to know more, Betty talks about her cake buntings and preparing the photos for Master Chef in more detail in her Twirling Betty blog. I know you are going to love what you see, so if you wish to own one of your own, or have Betty customise one for you, visit her shop on Etsy or Made It (within Australia) to arrange all that.

Mum avoids any fuss wherever possible, so I understand her motivation – but we were not going to let her board that plane without recognising the significant milestone.
