letter from the editor Welcome to our first edition of Cake! magazine for 2019! I hope you all had a relaxing and enjoyable break over the Christmas and New Year period. This issue of Cake! Magazine is all about florals! We feature tutorials on sugar flowers, painted flowers and wafer paper flowers, as well as interviews with 2 of the world's leading sugar flower artists Jacqueline Butler and Robert Haynes. See our feature on the 2018 Cake Decorating & Baking Industry Awards Night winners on page 33 of this issue. We had a fantastic night celebrating with members of the cake decorating and baking industry. We look forward to our 2019 Awards Night planned for November 2019. Our Cake Camp is back this year! August 2019 will see 60 Cake Campers heading to the gorgeous Blue Mountains (Sydney) for a weekend of cake, networking and fun! See page 24 to add your name to the expression of interest list!
