Cake of the Week is big news Down Under: listen to ABC Radio Darwin anna.aero interview
anna.aero’s Cake of the Week competition made big news Down Under this week. ABC Radio Darwin ran a special feature on its popular Drive show, hosted by Liz Trevaskis, on Wednesday (7 July 2021), after Darwin Airport was recently awarded Cake of the Week for QantasLink’s launch to Canberra. Listen to the radio interview with anna.aero Publisher Paul Hogan here.

Cake of the Week delivers “runway cred”
QantasLink’s Darwin-Canberra route, which is operated five times weekly, launched on 21 June 2021. The first flight connecting the two cities in nine years was marked by celebrations at the departure gate.
Tenny Russo from The Chantilly Kitchen created the 14-kilogram cake, which is designed to look like a vintage tea towel map of Australia, with sugar decorations depicting local iconography for both Darwin and Canberra. “Everything was handmade,” said Russo. “There’s a sunset, a laksa bowl, a jet ski and a crocodile to represent Darwin, while for Canberra there’s a bunch of grapes to represent the vineyards and some flowers for the Floriade Festival.”
Bruce Dale, Aviation Development Analyst, Darwin Airport, added: “It’s big and it’s cut-throat in the aviation industry. The ‘street cred’, or should I say ‘runway cred’, we get from winning Cake of the Week is certainly something which is boasted about.”
