The Brightside: Willow & George Cake Co.
Willow & George Cake Co.
Chloe is the creator of nostalgic cakes and the mumma of two beautiful children. Willow & George Cake Co. is both her obsession and her creative outlet. As a child, she would sit in the kitchen watching her mum create all the family birthday cakes, eager to help wherever she could. Now, with a successful business of her own, this Wollongong cake shop is on a mission to make our memorable moments that little bit sweeter.

2. Turn your oven down 10 degrees. Most ovens run hot.
3. Bake it the day prior. It saves stress on the day. You can still add tiny decorating details on party day, but if the bulk is already done, it's a win! You'll just need the fridge space.
4. If you're going to opt for bright or dark icing colours, purchase pre-made icing already coloured. Trust me, it will save you the multiple issues that will inevitably arise from using supermarket food colours.
5. Have fun!
