Introducing Warralily resident Natasha Pickett who is the creative genius behind Warralily Cakes. For those who already know Natasha, you would be fully aware of her creativity.

Natasha and her family moved down from New South Wales, when her husband was offered an incredible job opportunity in the Geelong region.  Researching Geelong suburbs and house designs they chose Warralily Estate to be their new home.

With her young family settled in, Natasha continued her teaching career teaching English at Diversitat, an organisation that supports culturally and linguistically diverse communities.  While Natasha fully enjoys teaching, her true passion is being creative and cake decorating is where she excels.  
Natasha’s passion for decorating cakes started with her own children’s birthday parties.  As we all know children’s cakes are quite challenging at the best of times. Her new skills developed from experimentation and tutorials from You Tube, and having a brand new kitchen presented the perfect opportunity to start Warralily Cakes which is now a Council Registered Food Business.

Every week brings new challenges. Footballs, minions and bouquets of flowers are just the beginning of the themed cakes Natasha has accomplished.  Her specialty is children and adults’ “fun themed” custom made cakes.  From the start of a bake to a completed masterpiece can take from 5-12 hours.  Chocolate Orange and White Chocolate Mud are other luscious flavours which are available.  All cakes are filled with rich dark, milk or white chocolate ganache and prices begin at $150.

Once complete, walking in with the final product and seeing the sparkle in the birthday boy/girl’s eyes, is Natasha’s favourite moment. The happiness these cakes brings to her clients, warms her heart.  Natasha spreads this joy and volunteers for Cake Angels.  Cake Angels is a beautiful organisation, where bakers & cake decorators donate their time and talent by gifting a cake to a family with a seriously ill child to create precious memories.

Birthdays, baby showers and all other special occasions, Natasha will assist you in designing that perfect centrepiece!  She works closely with the client to ensure her customers are thrilled with the end result. These awesome cakes not only bring customers from Warralily & Armstrong Creek, but also clients from Melbourne and the Geelong region. About sixty percent are Warralily Estate customers and delivery is complimentary to the Armstrong Creek vicinity. Door to door service is also a great way to get acquainted with the Warralily residents. 

The Warralily community spirit is most appealing to the Pickett Family. Natasha’s children have the freedom to play on the streets with their neighbourhood friends.  Weekly gatherings with neighbours who they now call friends, creates a real sense of community.  The family participates in all the events the estate has to offer. Their favourite event so far, was the Magic Show at Warralily Promenade.  Natasha and her family love living in and being a part of the community.  With her business, Warralily Cakes, she feels a true connection to the Estate.

If neighbourhoods are a reflection of those who live in them; have you ever wondered why some neighbourhoods seem so active, vital and dynamic while others lack life and personality? A healthy, happy community is often the result of residents getting involved and working collaboratively.  Lasting positive social change often starts with people referred to as ‘change agents’. 
Geelong residents have a multitude of options when it comes to shopping but nothing beats being able to pop down to the local store. And while proximity is important, as Warralily’s community development officer, I’m excited by the benefit that keeping it local has on enhancing community life.

I first thought I would write a blog on the top 10 tips of property investing or the 5 biggest pitfalls to avoid. Instead I’m going to pose a question, a question that I had to answer before deciding to invest? WHY? Why are you considering investing in property and what is the overriding factor driving you to do so? Do you see a niche, or a bargain or a new property hot spot ready to take off?
So, you have chosen your little patch of dirt, now it’s time to choose the house and more pertinent to this blog, it’s time to choose your builder.
This decision can be a challenging one as you certainly won’t lack for options in what is a very competitive market place. Depending on budget you could pick from over two dozen builders display homes at Warralily and in the Greater Geelong region.
