My Nan & Pop Capes, spent their working life at Mills & Wares, in Fremantle, Western Australia as a pastry cook and cake decorator. So maybe my attraction to pretty cakes is in my blood.
I know Mum loved cooking cakes, needless to say, my house was a popular destination for the kids around the neighbourhood on a Sunday.
But unfortunately the cake making skills weren't inherited by moi, so I have to seek out cake shops and bakeries instead, to get my fill.
Currently, Blackwood Lane in Oakleigh are hosting cake decorating classes. You can find class timetables and dates here.
If cupcakes are your thing, I suggest you have a look at the Living Social Deal currently going - which includes a cupcake decorating class plus 12 sparkly cupcakes to take home (if they make it home.)
This is usually priced at $120, currently it's just $49. Pretty awesome.
