THE CAKER - a short film

Images by the beautiful and talented Calypso Paoli

The concept for the short film THE CAKER, came from a true love for cakes, and a love for creating. Myself, Laura Barton and Calypso Paoli are in completely different lines of work, yet we came together pursuing a common ideal to create a beautiful short film. It serves as an advertisement for The Caker as well as an outlet to showcase clothes by Stolen Girlfriends Club and jewellery by Zoe&Morgan. It was a match made in cake, film and advertising heaven!

J'aime le gâteau!

To celebrate Bastille Day (Sat 14th July) and 'The Art of Pleasure', Kronenbourg (French beer) have partnered with NZ fashion label Pardon My French to design 10 limited edition scarves. I have one of these scarves plus a free mini cake of your choice to give away to a lucky Caker fan! All you have to do is tell me your favourite French dessert/patisserie/gateau and why. Visit my Facebook page and comment on the post about this tasty competition!

Things I've made this week...

 2 tiered gluten free red velvet cake for Hannah
 Chocolate chunk cookies
 GF orange, almond and polenta cake with orange blossom cream and candied citrus peel
Vegan pumpkin spice cake with coconut cream frosting - didn't quite work out as I'd hoped so will have to make some alterations to my recipe, but it will be great!
