Hello bakers!

The votes are in and the top themes were Mid winter and Matariki so lets have a Mid Winter Matariki Theme!

Matariki, or the traditional Maori New Year is marked by the rise of the Pleiades constellation of stars, also known as The Seven Sisters.  It’s a time for families to get together to remember loved ones and celebrate life.  Traditionally kites are flown, as they are seen to fly close to the stars.
