Port Kennedy jellyfish takes the cake

EVEN some of our deadliest creatures can be quite enchanting in their own way.

One Port Kennedy lady has perfectly or, perhaps more aptly, rather tastefully captured that essence with her exquisitely designed cake.

Mary Milne recently entered her first national cake decorating competition, the Australian National Cake Decorators Association Cake Competition on August 18 – 20 where she brought home the silver.

Mrs Milne received second place in the open section of the Miniature Gravity Defying Cake with her bloom of jellyfish creation.

She said helping her daughter with her homework gave her inspiration for the design.

“As I was doing a lot of research about turtles and marine life for my daughter’s school project I realised jellyfish are quite pretty and I wanted to highlight that despite the negative attributes they have from their stings,” she said.

“The theme was land or sea so I thought the jellyfish were perfect.

“It took about a week to make my bloom of jellyfish entry.”

It also looks like her skills won’t stay with just her as her daughter Isabelle is proving to be a budding cake decorating creative having already won awards in the junior section at the Perth Royal Shows.

“We do it together, she really loves doing the icing figurines – it’s a nice way for the two of us to do something together,” she said.

Mrs Milne is in the tentative stages of planning her next creation for this year’s Perth Royal Show.

She is the President of the Cake Decorators Association, Rockingham Branch.
