This very cool cake is for a little boy whom I've made cakes for before. Felix is having a ten pin bowling theme birthday party at the bowling alley and this cake was made especially for it.

Felix is actually a regular customer of mine (at the age of 6! how cool is he?) I made Felix's 2nd and 3rd birthday cakes. Check them out!:

I hope I get to make more of Felix's birthdays in the future!

I will be doing a lot of traveling the next few months to teach so stay tuned for updates on my upcoming adventures. To stay up to date on all things Handi's Cakes please also visit my Facebook page.

Shitbox Rally Cake

Handi's Cakes has donated  Shitbox Rally logo cake to support their work in raising money for Cancer Council New South Wales. Shitbox Rally is a really insane rally idea, they use crappy cars, each car must costs less than $1,000 to rally from Brisbane to Darwin. I am sure the rally team will have a great time laughing/ maintaining/ driving the crappy cars, check out progress of the rally from the blog.

Please support Shitbox Rally with your deepest pocket, the rally team is doing a wonderful work for a great cause and they are $15,000 under at the moment.
