Happy First Birthday To Cake Bakeshop!

First and foremost, a huge THANKYOU! to everyone who came to Cake on Saturday to celebrate our Birthday! We had a fantastic night and simply loved having you all there with us. 
Below are some photos of the celebrations that the very talented Teneille of Mock Designs took, as well as some photos that managed to make their way into The Courier's 'People and Places." 

To show our appreciation for all the support our friends, family and lovely regular customers have given us over the past 12 months we decided to use our First Birthday to launch our new special treat..... 


Don't feel bad if you aren't exactly sure what a Macaron is because we're happy to explain and happy to be the first to introduce you to this the delightful companion to our little cupcakes.

Because we're so high-brow here we've used the powers of Wikipedia to put together the following definition:

macaron (French pronunciation: [makaˈʁɔ̃])[1][2] 

You may not be able to read the phonetic alaphabet (we sure can't) but here's the trick: 
Macca Ron. 
Contentious we know... and you want to pronounce it Macca Rune but alas its Macca + Ron. 

A sweet confectionery made with egg whitesicing sugar,granulated sugaralmond powder or ground almond, and food coloring. The macaron is commonly filled withbuttercream or jam filling sandwiched between two cookies. It is meringue-based: made from a mixture of egg whites, almond flour, and both granulated and confectionery sugar.
The confectionery is characterized by its smooth, domed top, ruffled circumference (referred to as the "foot"), and flat base. It is mildly moist and easily melts in the mouth.[4]

Again, thanks for coming down and sharing such a lovely evening... you'll be happy to know that you all helped consume roughly 700 little macarons.
