Talented Siblings Take the Cake at Hawkesbury Show

Apr 20, 2024

The Cilia family made quite the splash at this year’s Hawkesbury Show, showcasing their flair for both cake decorating and agriculture. Led by mother Jane Cilia, along with daughters Ella 9, Sienna 7 and Jason 3, the family’s collective talent and dedication were on full display, earning them a slew of awards and recognition.

Mum Jane’s expertise in cake decorating impressed the judges as she clinched several accolades. Her intricately designed Special Occasion Cake featuring son Jason’s 3rd birthday cake  “Bluey” secured a commendable second place, while her innovative succulent-themed miniature cake and sugar art piece titled “Slothing Around” also earned her second-place finishes. Notably, her original cake design inspired by Bunnings Warehouse received a highly commended recognition.

Cake decorating is a family affair. Sienna, Mum Jane, Ella and three year old Jason in front of their prize winning cake.

Following in her mother’s footsteps, Ella came home with a second-place win for her four decorated cupcakes, each featuring “cute” animal designs. She also received the prestigious Hawkesbury Show Special Encouragement Award for her themed “Busy Bees” arrowroot biscuits, demonstrating that this young talent is one to watch in the future. 

But not to be outdone, younger sister Sienna, impressed judges with her imaginative approach to baking and decorating, earning a highly commended award for her themed “The Kingdom of the Animals” arrowroot biscuits.

Beyond the realm of cake decorating, the Cilia family ventured for the first time this year into agriculture with their watermelon cultivation efforts. Despite challenges posed by recent rains, their perseverance paid off as they secured top honours for the Most Largest Watermelon, alongside a respectable second place for Any Variety Watermelon.

Despite three-year-old Jason not securing a prize this year with his arrowroot biscuits, he is just as passionate, mum says.

“My three children love being in the kitchen with me. Their interest of cake decorating started from a young age. I love making their birthday cakes each year, I love seeing the joy on their faces. They look forward to the Hawkesbury Show each year,” Cilia said.
