The Neverending Story birthday cake book was made for a friend completing her thesis in children’s literature and is one of her favourite books. If you’ve ever been lucky enough to read the book, not just watch the movie, you’ll know that it was originally published in two colours of ink – red and green – to represent Bastian’s reality and Fantastica.

It’s Book Week here in Australia this week, I can’t wait until My Little Buttercup is old enough to get all dressed up for Book Week Parades! But, we’re a fair way off from that.

Last night was the first Sydney Cupcake Camp and it was done as a fundraiser for the RSPCA.

Imagine how long it must have taken to co-ordinate this? Japanese band Sour get it. See, a little bit of time and effort has a whole lot of effect, I can’t imagine this would have cost them that much at all to create. Not to mention it’s a great song.

So they say the problem with marketing is that you never know which half is working.

AMC have done a really good job with this campaign – MadmenYourself.
