I'm an environmentalist by trade but a keen sweet tooth and sewing machinist. Join me on my journey in starting a cake market stall in Darwin - where the air is hot and humid, the people go to markets to enjoy asian cuisine and accessible homemade treats haven't really taken off yet.

Anyone for Birthday Cake?
This weekend I didn't hold my market stall because I was busy making a custom birthday cake! I was given the theme of red, white and gold and also Lime green. It was so much fun to make.. especially using edible gold glitter for the first time. I displayed them on my Robert Gordon tiered cake stand. And was pretty impressed with myself!

I also made a bouquet of sweet treats. My first attempt at cake pops was initially hard because the mud cake balls kept falling apart when I dipped them in the chocolate. So after I froze the cake balls, I was able to dip them more easily. I also chocolate dipped strawberries for the bouquet of treats.
