Flute Bakery is my fave, and has been for a long time. I’ve dedicated a lot of time to bringing people on board with the Flute love, from bringing cakes to work to telling everyone who’ll listen about it. It’s now two years since I last wrote about it, so it’s a good opportunity to check whether anything’s changed (hint: no – it’s just as good as it’s always been).
The Canberra blogging community is just that: a community. One of the things I love most about it is that I’ve been able to meet the people behind the blogs I adore – and through them, I’ve met more great people and more great blogs! With the help of Twitter, shortly after the 2014 Enlighten program was released, a group of seven of us agree to purchase tickets and enjoy something we all like: a dinner experience.
The 2014 Enlighten program has a lot of very cool events… it’s hard to know where to start. I’m invited to tech run/preview the Museum of Australian Democracy’s event Deviator and I can’t help but agree – at the very least to find out exactly what it’s all about! My initial impression is that it’s a bit of a ‘treasure hunt’ but rather than finding things, it’s doing things a little out of the norm… and right in our Parliamentary Triangle. I’m not far wrong!
Enlighten Canberra 2014 looks set to be an absolute cracker again. I loved 2013 and there looks to be a lot to love for 2014. I was in the area for another Enlighten event and took a moment to take a few snaps… get excited!
My favourite institution which displayed projections last year was the National Library… I think it’s my early favourite again!
Old Parliament House is always a huge feat with projections stretching across the long building. The “Guys and Polls” montage is excellent.
See you there?

Canberra Cake Club began after a lovely Perth blogger mentioned Perth’s Secret Cake Club to a group of enterprising Canberra bloggers… in just a matter of months the Club was formed and the first Canberra ‘Cakeup’ was held at Gold Creek’s Stripey Sundae around an icecream theme (what else!). February marks the second ever Cakeup…
I’d never been to the ACTEWAGL Royal Canberra Show. Something about the idea of it’s never quite clicked for me – I think it might be that all the shows in Queensland are connected with a public holiday, so in my mind a show that isn’t probably isn’t that special or big . I’m glad to say that I’ve been proven wrong!
The Summerside Festival is on until 2 March – last week I reviewed the yummy Oyster Bar at Capital Wines. That same day we take our guest (who also happens to be my bestie!) to Robyn Rowe chocolates, down Nanima Road (near Poacher’s Pantry). A day with Capital Wines followed with Robyn Rowe chocolates is always a cracker: a guaranteed good day out (I’ve done it more than once before!).
