My new JORD natural wooden timepiece *LOVE*

As a small business owner time is money, as a Mum, time is everything. Time can be either a frustrating or amazing concept but with my newest natural wood watch created by Jord (pronounced Yode – which means ‘Earth’) – time is class, elegance, and and a bucket load of ‘where did you get that watch?!!!’ 😉

Time with my family – heaven on earth. This Jord natural wood timepiece; Heaven.

I’ve noticed with my cakes, I love the way they all turn out, but for example; below here is one of my wedding cakes before fresh flowers were added – and then after the flowers… it was a lovely cake to start with, but when you see the finished product, it was TOTALLY missing those flowers! This timepiece is the flowers to my cake. It goes with any and every outfit and I cannot tell you how many compliments I’ve had (you can’t exactly miss that gorgeous turquoise face, and then on closer look – those handset Swaroski crystals!) I feel like any outfit is complete with my Jord watch.Read More »

Sweetcheeks at the Logies!

Did you see? All those Celebrities on the red carpet at the Logie Awards ? All the Hair and Makeup, all the suits … and the CUSTOM GOLD LOGIE COOKIES ?!!! We were so excited when we were asked by Celebrity and Hollywood Gifting to be part of the gifting for the 2016 Logie Awards, and we wanted to tell you all, but we were sworn to secrecy. It all happened in April/May and this was also when I was up in Port Douglas, getting ready to be married! So it was a hectic time here at Sweetcheeks Cookies and Cakes. Lucky I have a small, yet amazing team around me, and we got all 250 hand painted Gold Logie Statue Cookies created, boxed, and sent off ready to go into the boxes with all the other goodies.

The nominees, presenters and performers were the lucky recipients of these gift boxes, and inside included;

Some of the presenters at this year’s Logies included: Dave Hughes, Julia Morris, Megan Gale, Eddie Perfect, Amanda Keller, Matt Preston, Peter Helliar, Eddie McGuire, Rebecca Gibney, Chrissie Swan, Ray Martin, Dannii Minogue and Richard Wilkins – these guys have all had our cookies in their hot little celebrity hands!

So I’d like to know – if you could accompany ANY celebrity to the 59th TV WEEK Logie Awards 2017 – who would it be? Tell me in the comments below. You never know – you just might get what you wish for 😉

Easter Recipe

It’s Easter Time! And don’t we know it! There are chocolate eggs, bunnies, footballs, bilby’s and even chocolate babies (freaky!) in stores everywhere right now! But what if you want to create something yourself this Easter? What if you want something a little different…. Never fear, Sweetcheeks is here with a totally awesome Easter Recipe! I’m sharing with you my favourite coconut ice – Easter style, baby! Let’s get into it …

What You Need:

• 4 1/4 cups of Desiccated Coconut

• 1 tin of sweetened condensed milk (395ml)

•A cake tin or baking dish of some sort, and use baking paper to line it.

Tis the Season to Get Baking!

Well… at least it is in the Sweetcheeks Cookies and Cakes world!

We’ve been busily baking away and creating lots of delicious treats for our clients all over Australia – and I thought now was the perfect time to share some of those treats with you!

As you may already know, at SCC, we’re lucky enough to work on a huge variety of orders; from sweet birthday cookies and wedding cakes to huge corporate orders. Lately we’ve been working on lots of corporate orders for clients who are looking to sweeten up the festive season!

Custom Corporate Cookies for The Herald Sun Melbourne

We’ve been busily rolling, cutting and decorating cookies for our friends at The Herald Sun who ordered 3,000 custom cookies for 500 lucky recipients. We had the boxes custom made to perfectly fit the cookies in the colour that The Herald Weekly Times wanted. These boxes were then wrapped in their personalised ribbon before being delivered to HWT who then shipped the cookies out to each recipient.Read More »

Sweetcheeks Barbie Cake

Ever since Barbie was ‘born’ on March 9th of 1959, as Barbara Millicent Roberts (who knew she had a whole name?!) we’ve seen her take on so many roles – over 150 actually! The creator of the Barbie doll, Ruth Handler, once said – “My whole philosophy of Barbie was that through the doll, the little girl could be anything she wanted to be. Barbie always represented the fact that a woman has choices” That’s why Barbie has been a rockstar, a registered nurse, an aerobics instructor, police officer, heck she even – as an astronaut –  went to the moon 4 years before Neil Armstrong! And in the 90’s Ran for U.S President, before any female candidate had ever made it onto the presidential ballot! Barbie represents serious girl power.Read More »
