The Gumnut Bakery

The Gumnut Bakery The Gumnut Bakery has finally been born from my recent obsession with cakes and ties my new business to my Australian heritage. Gumnuts are the hard woody fruit found on trees from the eucalyptus family which are native in Australia.

The word is also used in one of my favourite childhood stories: The Gumnut Babies, by May Gibbs. The Gumnut Bakery is a small bakery business, focused on delivering quality, bespoke cakes and cupcakes to each and every client.

Ranked: The 13 best cakes from the Women's Weekly Birthday Cake book.

Like the article says, no Australian kid's party was complete without a woman's weekly cookbook cake. I was lucky enough that my mum made me one every year. No wonder I've followed a path into cake decorating.

The Australian Women's Weekly Birthday Cake Book is an Australian institution but which one is the best? Does 'the Piano' rate a mention and has 'the Castle' ever broken anyone else?

Claire Bowman Cake Designer I'm loving the gold Cake Lace and the effect I achieved with colouring the red lace mix for the heart. I baked the gold strips a little more than usual so they were firm enough to hold shape away from the cake.

We are getting lots of new likes out there recently which is great! Keep them coming. I've got some wonderful new ideas for this year and can't wait to get started on them, so stay tuned.

Don't forget if you want to place an order, get in contact as early as you can to avoid disappointment as last minute bookings are sometimes difficult to accommodate.
