The Very Hungry Caterpillar - BIRTHDAY CAKE!

I've just finished Gabriel's birthday cake for his 2nd birthday tomorrow and I just love it! I couldn't wait to share! And I'm sure it won't look as complete as this for very long! All the little fruits are made from marzipan and the cupcakes have butter frosting. Needless to say, my hands will be stained with food colouring for some time to come!

Have a great weekend!

Branding project EMMA DE SMIT

I had the pleasure of recently working on a branding project for freelance writer and communications consultant, Emma. She really loves Scandinavian design and was inspired by the notecards in my shop.

The end design is clean, crisp and flexible - a point that was important to Emma as she works on various projects across many different industries. The final card was printed on 350gsm matt cello stock with a very subtle clear varnish on the leaf mark on the reverse.

Winter HOME inspiration

With lots of beautiful, crisp, cold days recently here in Melbourne, I'm feeling very homely and enjoying being at home with my boys doing lots of cooking and baking (trying my hardest to be of MasterChef standard!).

Here are some of my favourite wintery home inspirations courtesy of Pinterest...

Kids BIRTHDAY themes

With Gabe's 2nd birthday at the end of the month, I'm in planning mode for his cake... Last year I did some little Elmo and Cookie Monster cupcakes but not sure what to go for this year.

Whilst we're not having a party (opting for a family day out at the open range zoo instead) I still love to create something special at home for him.

Here is some of the inspiration I came across on Pinterest

I'm back!

Well we're back from our family trip to Bali! It's been a crazy week since getting ghome and am only now finding the time to post! Our holiday was amazing and a well deserved break for all of us. There are lots of exciting things happening at Buttercup Ink at the moment that I'll fill you in on over the coming weeks...

Anyway, just wanted to say hi and share a few snaps with you!
