The dress is covered in yellow glitter, which doesn't show up in the photo. I haven't taken too close a shot of the face, as my 2 year old stuck his finger in it.
The current format described above is only for the short term. My wonderful web designers Carla & Donna, will be shutting down Kiwicakes completely for one day, very soon, to upgrade the system. This new upgrade should hopefully make everything easier to use. Including the two categories described above being able to be accessed from a drop down menu.
These changes became necessary as the Kiwicakes catalogue has grown to over 2000 products. The more products we add, the harder it becomes to find things. During this last month, we've placed orders around the world, for large quantities of new products, this will see our product range rise to over 3000 products in the coming months. So please bear with us, as we move to implement the changes. If you have difficulty finding anything, or need help with anything at all, please feel free to email me firstname.lastname@example.org
