This cool chick is leaving Brisvegas. I love this chick more than anyone else.

My little girl goes to get her leg fixed tomorrow ... I hope she copes with it better than I probably will....

Banoffee Birthday Pie.
This is the birthday boy’s other choice for his 30th. When you can’t decide on your favourite, what the hell, have both! Short crust pastry that is so short it melts in the mouth, filled with layers of dulce de leche and banana topped with whipped cream and sour cream, guilded banana chips and gold leaf. Like I said before, I like this guy’s style!!! This 8” pie is about 3” high, that means one slice and you are on your way to a sugar coma... #banoffee #sugarhigh

I like this guy’s style!
This 30th birthday cake was the birthday boy’s request. I love that he chose a carrot cake! Black treacle in the cake makes it lovely and dark and lemon, orange and mandarin zest in the cream cheese icing cuts through the sweetness. There is another one though, seems the birthday boy couldn’t decide on his favourite dessert.... #theboyhasstyle

It’s been almost 6 weeks since I planted these seeds and my little desert rose babies have now upgraded to a pot. The move wasn’t rough on them because I planted them in the peat pellet they were sprouted in. I think it’s going to be slow progress from here though.

It is way past time the next greatest baker showed off one of these! I am dying to see The Great Australian Bake Off finale tonight. My neighbors might not like it but I will be cheering on the finalists like it’s a footy final! Good luck guys! Can’t wait xxxx

Still loving looking at this cake and reliving the hours @thefinickybaker and I spent flower arranging. I could do that part all day, every day!

When @thefinickybaker and I get together in the kitchen, this happens.
I am so in love with this cake!

Despite it raining all week and the odd wrinkle as a result, I am still absolutely stoked with how this cake turned out! #bb8cake

It’s 2 weeks later and my desert rose seeds have not only sprouted, they are rocking it. These peat pellets are the shizzle. Now to find them a new home...🤔 #desertrose

Humidity and fondant don’t mix.
This is why I’m always whining about making fondant cakes in the humidity and rain in Brisbane. 📹: @thefinickybaker #frustration #humidityandfondantdontmix
