The most exciting thing to happen to me was to be approached by Sandra Salamony from Quarry Publishing and asked to submit some pictures of my cupcakes for a book she was putting together called "1000 Ideas for decorating Cupcakes, Cookies & Cakes".
Initially she ask me for 12 images but I ended up sending her 20, and to my absolute amazement, when I recieved my copies and went through the book, I found there were 17 Bella Cupcakes images in it, and to make it even more exciting, my picture took the centre spot on the cover of the book.

Well I thought it was crazy getting asked the first time to be on a TV show, but to get invited TWICE!! well that was just unreal. The guys from TV3's Pasific Beat St had seen my little segment on iAMTV and wanted me to do an even longer piece on their Sunday morning show which was a no-brainer, I didn't need any convincing this time around.

Cleo Magazine were doing a Wedding Special in their December 2010 edition and approached me asking if I would like to submit some pics of my cupcake towers for their mag. After sending the pictures in I didn't hear anything back for a while and I figured they had decided on something else, which was fine. But just before December I got an email saying my pictures were going to be in the December edition. This was simply stunning as I had been a reader of Cleo for years and couldn't believe my creations were in it for everyone to see.
