Honouring the Anzacs

Today as all Australians know, is ANZAC Day. 
Being born in England and coming here when I was 10, it took a few years for the significance of Anzac Day to sink in.

Cake Artistry by Julie from Ulverstone in Tasmania has this slouch hat which she made for an old gentleman's 90th birthday last year - Ernie had been in the Light Horse Brigade when he was younger.

Sugar and Spice is the blog of two sisters, Celine and Mary, who love to make cakes. 
They don't sell them but like to post piccies of their work. Here's the Anzac Day cake they made 5 years ago. 

I do a lot of family history research and whilst my ancestors were not Australian, several of them served in the armed forces in WW1 and WW2. I think that we can celebrate the lives of all men and women who have served their country and in many cases sacrificed their life for what we have today.
