2005 International Cupcake Tour Part Un

What a coincidence that the cover of this week's Good Living (the best liftout all week) is the award-winning photo of caterer Simmone Logue, decked out royally in corset and cupcake skirt. "There are 478 cupcakes in the dress. Simmone made them all, of course. The flowers - roses and gerberas, mainly - were all fresh". This is what it's all about.

This photo won the Shoot The Chef photographic competition, held every year as part of the delectable Good Food Month, when Sydney really comes into its element. The weather is warm, the sunsets are gloriously husky, good food is everywhere and fun events are held all during October. The Night Noodle markets are a favourite, but personally I go weak at the knees for the Cocktail Of The Month, where the best bars create a signature cocktail and pair it with some scrummy morsel. Such as Mars Lounge's offering: Between The Cheeks cocktail – Bacardi, Creme de Peche, peach nectar and cardamom-infused sugar syrup. Canape – wonton cup with Balmain bug, ginger, kaffir lime, chilli and shallot. Yum.

Why is everything I encounter about food today? All I have is an apple and some raspberries!

Pretty. Wonder what they'll do with all of those cupcakes?
