Pinks and reds celebrate a glorious half century. A milestone in anyone's life.
Blissful Bites - Where all the cakes are homemade and all the tummies are full...
Cakes for all occasions, homemade with love from Oliver’s Granny.
Afternoon teas, celebration cakes, cupcakes and dessert bars... I was born in Rhodesia, now Zimbabwe and spent part of my early years in what is currently Zambia. I learnt to cook, quite literally, at my Grandmother’s knee. Earliest recollection of Granny’s cooking is of Peanut Butter cookies. I ate them hot out of the oven, great! ... and was promptly sick from over-eating. I still can’t stand the smell of Peanut Butter. Granny’s system, like many of her generation, was a handful of this, pinch of that, did we add xyz? Mom was less of a cook but taught me to use recipes – what a wonderful invention. I chose to cook sweet things and the family will confirm that I am not a great meals cook. But I can and do make cakes and biscuits and pies and have recently discovered food p**n in the form of entremets. Thomas Trillion, ladies, if you are interested. He makes divine desserts in Hong Kong but you can still drool over the computer. I took cake decorating classes in London and made a few Christmas and birthday cakes for friends and all four wedding cakes for the children. I also discovered the Internet and how easy it is to find online classes. Slowly building up my expertise. Once in Australia I took on the grandmother role and had Oliver sitting on the benchtop while we made dinosaur biscuits, etc. Then along came cupcakes for charity at the golf club and then dessert Bars for birthdays and weddings. I only recently obtained Council approval to run a home baking business and now sell at local markets and take personal orders. I am looking forward to many more years of successful baking and also the mistakes which usually taste great but look awful. Fortunately I have great friends who are willing to taste the experiments and eat the leftovers.
Pinks and reds celebrate a glorious half century. A milestone in anyone's life.
Great day for a party. Sunshine and not too hot. Unicorns and rainbows were needed. Happy birthday Willa. I hope you enjoy your unicorns.
My weekend birthday cake was a 2 tier vanilla with rainbow and a Minnie Mouse! Last night's humidity made the fondant a bit sticky but generally it was a success.
Having made many Princess Elsa cakes it was fun to look for an Anna doll and create a cake for a birthday surprise. Have a wonderful party with the visiting family. With a freshly iced skirt the cloak and hair had to be tied up to avoid being spoiled by the buttercream.
A lucky girl is having an afternoon tea party to celebrate her birthday at Silo's Winery. A few cupcakes to add to the table.
This baker couldn't make a teddy that looked enough like Woofy so mom came to the rescue with Thomas and a few friends. Happy birthday with your favourite friends, Charlie.
Another football theme cake but today we are supporting the Broncos! Happy birthday and I hope the rain stays away for the BBQ.
2 birthday cakes today. 1 a double height cake with an ice cream topper. 2nd one was dinosaurs and Paw Patrol for Hunter. Happy birthday chaps.
Busy week with birthday cakes and a wedding cake. A young lady was given the gift of her first custom made cake, ordered by a very thoughtful partner. To make is more memorable, it was a Bulldogs cake! Happy birthday everyone and best wishes for the future to the newly married couple.
Turning 5 and wanting a pink Princess cake. Happy birthday Mathilda.
Birthday cake for a young man celebrating his 13th birthday. A Roosters fan he had a logo on the top and asked for a few lollipops.
A birthday cake for a special lady. Carrot cake secretly left home to brighten the day. I believe this lady is a fantastic artist so I hope she is kind about my artist's palette and brush.

An 80th birthday is a milestone worth celebrating. A delightful lunch at Mountain Ridge vineyard was finished with a birthday cake. Congratulations Lynette.
It's been a busy weekend. Following the production of a heap of small Christmas cakes for the golf Presentation Day, I had to prepare 5 birthday cakes and 2 for baptism. Best wishes to the babies for their futures. Roman wanted a Red Ranger cake. Why do they have such scary eyes? Happy birthday Roman.
At the end of the year Presentation Day lunch the Club Champion is given a cake. This year I made a "golf ball" for Peta who managed the difficult task of winning both the gross and nett competitions. Superb effort.
Paw patrol cake with proper toys to play with afterwards. Happy birthday Kruze. I hope you have fun with the talking dogs. For similar cakes contact me on 0431 173 260 or blissfulbites.com.au
Christmas. Lots to organise. Stress levels rise. Let your baker take some of the strain. If you are looking for cupcakes, even undecorated ones, contact me on 0431 173 260 or blissfulbites.com.au.
Turtles! Apparently Georgie has a toy one that is essential to a peaceful life. This toy is much loved and clever mom has bought a few in case it is misplaced (or needs a wash). What else would you put on her cake.
What a glorious day to visit Jamberoo for a birthday celebration especially when it's topped off with chocolate cake.
When you are turning 4 and mommy says you can choose your cake, Spiderman is not a bad choice. Lovely day to celebrate. For similar cakes contact me on 0431 173 260 or @blissfulbites.com.au
If you were born on 31st October, there will come a time when you want a Halloween cake. Blood drip and a pile of skulls! Great.PS my husband says a pile of skulls needs rats so I've tucked one into the back).
Halloween starts early at Granny's house. Wilma the teenage witch is ready for Oliver's party tonight. Now to cast a few spells and conjure up some spooky cupcakes.
80 years young and still playing music. Congratulations Peter. I hope you had a wonderful lunch at Far Meadow Table.
Cakes, cakes and more cakes! A busy weekend. At least the cakes will cheer up the party during the rain. 3 very ugly girls got together for a pyjama party and a lovely you lady turned 20. For similar cakes contact me on 0431 173 260 or @blissfulbites.com.au
Where's Wally? Apparently he has gone camping this weekend. Hopefully Saturday will turn out to be a more pleasant day but time with your mates is a great way to celebrate a major birthday.
Not many people get to celebrate their 100th birthday. A few ladies from the Heads Golf Club gathered on Marj Bradd's front lawn, with neighbours and the postie, to sing Happy Birthday and present a bouquet and cake to help her celebrate with her family.
Two young people turned 4 this week. 2 fun cakes prepared and collected this afternoon. Happy birthday to you both.
What a beautiful day for a party. Especially if your daughter-in-law has organised it and collected a chocolate cake that has been topped with lovely silk flowers.
A beautiful day tomorrow is petfecy for celebrating Rubi's christening. A simple cake is what's needed for the celebration .
