Good Morning Cakers!

This week at LCDO HQ we have been planning a few new things behind the scenes that we are super excited about and can't wait to share.....but more about that later!

This has been a huge week on social media with a few cakey stories and techniques that have just gone nuts. So here's to whats hot in the online space this week.

1. Make a Tiger Cake from Malaysian Blogger Azlita Aziz


We just love things that are easier than they look and this is just a gorgeous way to create a fun cake for a safari or jungle themed birthday party.

2.How to get all the forms you need for your cake business

Don't you love it when you post something on social media and its goes a bit nuts and then you realize you posted a broken link? Aaah I did that this week. It seems a few of you were keen to get your hands on my Business and Marketing forms Pack (Value $37) and so here is the correct link!
