Ghermez Cupcakes, a Sydney cupcake company, is launching its Awards, by unveiling special edition cupcake flavours inspired by three accomplished Australian women: Cate Blanchett, Quentin Bryce and Gail Kelly.
Ghermez Cupcakes’ founder and Managing Director, Ghazaleh Lyari, believes women’s achievements are worthy of celebration.
“These women have done extraordinary things for society. They are wives, mothers, professionals and role models. Each of them, in their own way, has inspired me to fulfil my potential and strive to be the best in any field I choose to participate,” Ms Lyari said.
“I want to pay tribute to women, in my own way, from a wide spectrum of professional and personal backgrounds and I hope that other women can be inspired to see their own dreams come to fruition. I want women in Sydney to look at these cupcakes and imagine the symbol that their own cupcakes might feature, then work towards making that happen,” Ms Lyari added.
The three cupcakes have been released as a week-long tribute to the three women, and feature specially designed gold adornments that are symbolic of each woman’s accomplishments.
Blanchett’s cupcake features a theatrical mask in recognition of her position as an actor and Co-Artistic Director of the Sydney Theatre Company. A golden crown tops Governor General Quentin Bryce’s cupcake, reflecting her position as the Queen’s representative in Australia. Finally, Gail Kelly’s cupcake has a golden dollar sign to indicate her position as the Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of Westpac Banking Corporation.
