I’ve been having so much fun getting inspired by beautiful cakes during the Planet Cake Win Your Dream Wedding Cake competition that I thought I’d try to create one myself! I’m not literate with any type of computer graphic program so I used the “Print template out and take to it with a plain black pen” method! Then I scanned it in.
Need more ideas? Print out a template and
- Paint your design
- Use coloured pencils
- Use magazine clippings of scenes (Planet Cake does brilliant painting onto cakes!)
- Cut out fabric that compliments your wedding (I love Amy Butler’s creations!) and paste it onto a template
- Use stamps
You can send a scanned copy, the digital file or a photo of your creation in to win!
Of course, being Polka Dot Bride makes my entry ineligible- but not for you! Check out this post for full details on how you could win your own dream wedding cake by the amazing Planet Cake! The prize is valued at $1500 and closes in under two weeks on February 13th! Planet Cake can send the cake to any metro area in Australia (excluding Darwin)
Terica emailed me looking for inspiration for her late spring wedding. She and her husband to be are both big fans of the colour red. He’s a University of Georgia fan while she is a member of a sorority with red and cream colours. They both love red velvet cake and want to incorporate the colours of the cake into their brunch wedding.
I love the fresh use of red and cream. A room filled with tables covered in white table cloths, topped with red tin pails filled with bunches and bunches of white flowers. A bouquet of simple, sweet poppies and a pair of red shoes set this board in motion.
A brunch wedding should serve light and delightful food- with sweet red velvet cake and white chocolate covered strawberries to finish.

A heads up for anyone using Qantas Frequent Flyer points for their honeymoon!
A new advertising campaign starts today inspired by the clear, strong messages from the likes of campaigns of KEVIN 07 and Barack Obama’s “Yes We Can”. The message? It’s Time To Choose
After March 31st you will not be able to transfer reward points from a lot of credit cards into your Qantas Frequent Flyer account. If you were planning to use those points for your honeymoon, transfer them before March 31st or you will lose the chance to gain the benefit of their program.
So now is the time to choose whether you will go with Qantas or choose another Frequent Flyer program. It’s up to you and it’s worth researching the benefits of each (Check out the Australian Frequent Flyer Forum for some good comparisons)
Check out the Qantas Frequent Flyer website to see how your cards will be affected and pass the word on to anyone you know who may also need to choose!
