It has been a crazy 12 months for us as a family. So crazy we hardly even had time to sleep!
Most of the last 12 months were spent packing up house so we could move half way across the world to Malawi, Africa to do what God has called us to do for at least the next 10 years.
We have been in Malawi for 3 months now and settling well into our new life here in beautiful Africa.
That aside, what has been going on cake-wise in the past 12 months??
Well, back in March, I decided at the last minute to enter for one last time into the Sydney Royal Easter Show cake decorating competition. I knew competition would be tough this year since I've been bumped out of the 'novice' class into the 'open' class (once you win first place in one class, you need to move up to the next one) so I was a little worried that my cake would not meet the standards of the 'open' class.
Being the Easter Show, I wanted to make a cake that told the true meaning of Easter - that of the Son of God dying on the cross and rising from the dead for us. The result is a three tiered cake that depicted the story fo Christ from birth to ascension to Heaven. I didn't make this cake to win a prize so it was a nice surprise to find that I had been awarded 3rd prize! I used my $15 prize money to buy a showbag and my favourite cheese-on-a-stick at the Show :)
