{Delicious} Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it too?

Soooo, this probably, maybe, definitely isn’t likely to be the best help for any health new years resolutions you have made in the last few days but this was just too pretty/delicious/cute not to share.

33 cakes

Buzzfeed has compiled 33 of the best cakes you are likely to see in a while. You can find the link here -> Buzzfeed – Cutest Cakes of 2013


There is everything from cheesecakes to ombre to gummy bears.

As they say, “If you ever doubt that the world is a beautiful place, just remember: We’ll always have sugar, butter and flour”.


Happy sugar loading Nesters!

{Prizeapolooza} Need some sweetening up this Christmas?

You are either a naturally gifted baker… or you are me. Katrina Tobin is a superstar of the first variety!christmas photoshop small copy

Katrina is a qualified chef who started her business while at home also looking after her three children! She has been making speciality cakes for all occasions for the people of the Central West since 2012.


Cakes by Katrina are not only wonderful to look at, they also back up their appearance with a delicious taste. Your tastebuds will dance once you try one of her cakes (I can personally attend to that!)

Prior to Katrina’s entry into the marketplace, Bathurst did not have a wide variety of cake suppliers who were actually able to deliver awesome handmade-hand-decorated cakes at a reasonable price!

All products are individually designed and tailored specifically to your needs – and the best bit…the absolute magnitude of flavour choices to choose from!


So whenever the need for cakes, cupcakes, biscuits or cake pops strikes (for example every Wednesday at 3.17pm in my office) Katrina is the person who should be on your speed dial!photo 1

You now have an answer for your wedding, engagement or christening cakes! She also offers novelty cakes, cake toppers and the best birthday cakes you have ever seen!

Cakes by Katrina are baking their way into your heart by offering one very special Nester the chance to take home their very own handmade, scrumptious chocolate mud Christmas cake this year (valued at approximately $70.00!) Imagine how much that would impress the in-laws (or out-laws as my hubby-bird calls them!) For your chance to win all you have to do is be a ‘liker’ of Cakes by Katrina’s Facebook page and be a ‘liker’ of The Central Nest!
