What Karen and Lisa do when they are not decorating cakes

I just love it when I get the opportunity to play around in the Cakes by Karen kitchen. ┬áSo when I was staying at Karen’s place for the Australia Day weekend it was a no brainer┬áto help out in the kitchen and bake some desserts for her Austraila Day BBQ.

Here are some pics that show the antics of the day.
