Art Bazaar is a great way to show families and visitors how wonderful our creative community is.

HAN is a non-profit membership of artisans from the Hunter who carefully hand pick stallholders to ensure that shoppers have an array of local, handmade, unique, original & quality products, making Art Bazaar an affordable opportunity for both the public & the creative people of Newcastle and the Hunter.

Icing decoration on birthday cake

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

WATCH THE NEW PROCESS HERE:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_sossOFKufQ&feature=youtu.be

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
