Sharing Sunday: The Best Home Decorated Cakes!

Cake Decor in Cairns Sharing Sunday

Once a month I like to have a bit of cakey love fun with my local home baking (not cake industry sellers) facebook fans. They get to upload and share one homemade cake to my page wall and receive loads of positive feedback for their creative efforts. And because I am super awesome, as a special token of appreciation I always offer the chance to win a couple of small thank you gifts! 

At the moment, the fantastic Cairns Craft Centre at the Show grounds Shopping Centre has been donating the goodies. Everything from cake boards to piping tips and cupcake cases!

Winner Categories

People's Choice : 
Simply the most likes received on the original photo uploaded to my wall.

Cake Decor in Cairns Baked With Love : 
My own special criteria that is not about skill but the genuine love and effort put into the cake/ cookie/ cupcake / cake pop.

Now I gotta tell you that every cake that gets uploaded is awesome! They REALLY are! No sugar snobbery here! A variety of skills and abilities all sharing the spotlight and all receiving loads of cakey love and encouragement to keep on baking and decorating!

I get so much positive feedback for creating this community event, everyone loves the opportunity to share their creations and I suddenly had a light bulb moment... 


I thought "Hey?! Why aren't you publishing these super fab creations on your blog? HELLO!"

I know right! How could I have not thought of this before!

So keep an eye out for the regular Sharing Sunday Label and hashtag #sharingsunday across my networks because these fantabulous home bakers are about to get pimped out!!!

Now on to August's winners...

Frozen Birthday Cake Licensed Figurines Olaf Anna Elsa Christoph
Cake by Trisha porta


Wow! It was uber hard to pick just one this month. All the cakes screamed LOVE!! I just couldn't make up my mind, I was inboxing friends for help - they couldn't pick either. So what's a girl going to do? Ask little Miss 4 to pick for me of course! Now I must warn you, she's a terribly biased fan of Frozen especially Anna and Olaf so ahem, it's not a surprise she picked this one!! A fabulous Frozen themed cake using Licensed figures.

Now that the winners have been revealed, check out these other amazingly awesome entries. You can now get an understanding as to why it was so hard for me to choose!

Freaking fantastic entries from both beginners and very advanced skilled homebakers! Some of these cakes are better than a professional job!
