May Cakeup : Your Finest Baking

For our May cakeup we were simply thrilled to announce that Canberra's finest of fine dining venues, The Boathouse by the Lake, had offered to host us. To go with the fine dining theme of the venue we set the theme as "Your Finest Baking". That proved to be a great idea as our amazing bakers wowed us with fine looking and fine tasting cakes, cheesecakes, cupcakes and macarons.

The Boathouse by the Lake was a stunning venue for our Sunday afternoon soirĂ©e with beautiful water views, sunlight streaming in through the floor to ceiling windows, a fire crackling in the back ground and plenty of room for our bakers and guests to mingle in. We are extremely grateful for The Boathouse management for not only hosting us but doing it in such exquisite style. 

Bec from Sweet Tea once again provided our bakers with a range of beautiful cake stands that suited the theme of the day.

Thank you to all our bakers for your hard work in showing us your finest creations and let the photos do the talking...
