Icing decoration on birthday cake

Here’s how we decorated the icing on our daughter’s birthday cake – Jackson Pollock/The Block style!


We invented a new concept for icing decoration for our daughter’s birthday cake. We drilled two holes in the top of a funnel & tied a piece of string to each hole. Then rolled up a piece of baking paper & placed in the centre of the funnel. You can then pour jelly crystals or sugar coloured with food colouring through the funnel & let it swing like a pendulum to achieve the random design inspired by Jackson Pollock & recently seen on The Block

My T-Shirt Design Made it to the Top 20

I recently entered Redbubble’s T-shirt design competition for New York band The Big Sleep for their gig at SXSW in Austin, Texas on 15 March 2012.

I am pleased with this week’s announcement that my entry, The Line Up, received enough votes by Redbubble members to make the TOP 20. Redbubble received 174 entries in total.

The designs in the final cut were presented to the band to make the selection for their limited edition tee. Although I wasn’t the overall winner I was glad that they got to see my design.
