Bonnae Gokson’s book Butterflies and All Things Sweet opens a window into the inspiration and ideas behind her extraordinary cake designs. Unique in the world, these cakes encapsulate the creative vision of the woman who made her name working with luxury brands including Chanel, Giorgio Armani, W Hotels and Ritz Carlton. Butterflies and All Things Sweet is not a cookbook, but a visual feast, exploring the ingredients, ideas and inspiration behind the works of edible art through lush photography shot on location in Hong Kong—the home of Bonnae Gokson’s cafes and restaurants—and internationally. The ruffles of a petticoat. The petals of a delicate peony. Rolls and rolls of satin ribbons in a dozen shades of red. The startling purple hue of taro at the market. The juicy citrus cells of a pomelo, the jewel-like seeds of a pomegranate. Fragrant ripe raspberries at the height of their perfection. The gold luster of a butterfly’s wing, glimpsed and then gone. “When there’s a lot going on, it is the simple things in life that are the most powerful,” she says. Bonnae Gokson’s Hong Kong cafes and restaurants include Ms B’s Cakery, SEVVA and C’est La B. Bonnae Gokson’s privileged upbringing exposed her to fine dining, grand entertaining and extensive international travel, and these influences shaped her destiny as the Hong Kong style icon she is today. Yet it is her quest for authenticity and joy that drives her creativity, resulting in cakes that taste as extraordinary as they look. “A little flour, a little sugar, a little butter and the power of the imagination: that’s what it takes,” she says. From pure raw ingredients to the last bite, when all that remains is a few crumbs on a hand-painted porcelain plate, each cake is a celebration of all that is sweet and transient in life itself. Bonnae Gokson’s Hong Kong cafes and restaurants include Ms B’s Cakery, SEVVA and C’est La B.

Australia's most famous children's cake book - reprinted in a collector's edition. The Australian Women's Weekly's Children's Birthday Cake Book was first published in 1980 and has sold more than half a million copies. In response to all the requests we have had, often from mothers who remember fondly all the cakes from their own childhood, we have taken this book from our archives and reprinted it 30 years after it first appeared. We have had to make a minor change - four of your little friends are missing, but they've been replaced by other cakes you'll love just as much. Apart from that we've left it just as it was - a true collectors' cookbook especially for you. Now you can recreate your favourite cakes - the swimming pool, rocket and that train from the cover for your own child.
