Here are a couple of posts we have picked up on recently with our lovely cup cake papers.
The talented photographer Rowe Timson captured Gabe’s first birthday with the most gorgeous photos. See our Carnival stripe patty pans on the elaborate table. What a beautiful party. See website for Rowe Timson here.
Also spotted are the lovely cup cakes by Madelaine. See website here.
She has used our Fairy Princess papers to make beautiful, beautiful cakes.
It is exciting for us to see our product and the personal ways people use them. If you have any images of our patty pans with your own creations, please let us know – we would love to share. - kate
What better way to start the year than with a cracking review for one of our customers? Congratulations Albert St! I was lucky enough to eat there twice last week. As Larissa Dubecki notes- ‘Sydney Road begins a new chapter’. Very exciting.
Our black and white patty pans have been getting some great press lately. None more beautiful than the Design Sponge post- In the kitchen with: coffee flavoured cake. The styling and photography is so perfect – thanks to Kristina Gill (kristinagill.com). She purchased her patty pans at Wheel and Barrow.

Last month, we were treated to a beautiful lunch at Guy Grossi’s Merchant. We are very lucky here at Robert Gordon, to work with Australia’s best chefs- making, creating, glazing, and firing beautiful custom made pieces for their restaurants. We have worked with Guy Grossi and his lovely wife Melissa for some time now. Merchant is a vibrant, exciting Italian restaurant – it was a joy making the ceramics to match.
The girls, Sally, Sue, Rani and Naisim, who actually glazed and decalled the pieces were thrilled to be able to see them at work.
