Time for Teddy Bears to have their Picnic

Sometimes when I daydream, I like to reflect on what I have done.

9 years ago, I arrived in Sydney afraid but also excited about starting my uni lifestyle. During my 5 years at uni, I baked most of the birthday cakes for my friends. Some were nice and some were sloppy, but they were always well received and made the birthday boy/girl happy.

Then, about 3 years ago, I decided I needed something interesting to do with my life, so I took a beginners cake decorating course. I learned all bout rolled icing/fondant and I was hooked! It was so much fun. And so I started making little models and discovered that there is a vast amount of information and pictures online, Cake Central was my daily bible!

After some time, my friends kept telling me that I should sell my cakes. At first I wasn’t sure… who would want to buy a cake from me? Nonetheless, my friends were all very encouraging, and when I finally decided to do it for ‘real’ they were quick to tell everyone and also place orders of their own.

Why am I blabbering on? Well, my Creations are going to be in a magazine next month! I’m so excited and so grateful because I’ve never had this kind of opportunity before. If you had told me 3 years ago when I was first discovering this new passion that I would one day have an opportunity to have some of my work appear in a magazine I would have not believed a word of it! I consider this to be a major milestone for my creations… So whenever I get one of those, I like to take the time to reflect on how far I’ve come and consider how much further I have to go…

The theme was Teddy Bears Picnic and it will be appearing in the Aug issue of Shop for Kids magazine. I made a bunch of stuff, but for now I’m not sure exactly what will be appearing in there…
