Seven Layer Wedding Cake: Roses and Lillies

This wedding cake is one of the cherished work that I loved to labour with joy. For some time, due to work, I am not making cakes regularly but when the request came for this cake, I loved the theme and design and made this cake of yellow and blue hue. Baking and maturing seven layer fruit cake and making of approximately 150 roses with approximately 150 lilles and 200 other flowers to give it a visual effect was time worth spent.The wedding was to take place in a farm and the heavy cake had to be transported in two parts and assembled there. Whew! But it was worth seeing the smiles and whatsapp msgs and smses of content.

Five - Tier Wedding Cake: Bows and Brooch

After a long spell, I made a wedding cake amidst busy work schedule, and whilst baking the cake and decorating it...I was wondering whether I had forgotten how to make cakes. It was a request that I could not refuse. The bride had given her design and wanted it in white and silver hues only.

Four Layer Wedding Cake : Orchids

Now the year is almost coming to an end and I would like take this moment to thank all of you who have supported me, guided me and encouraged me to do better. Having made close to 250 wedding cakes, I have learned a lot on maturing the fruit cake, experimenting with alochol, brushes, making home made tools, planing and shaping the cakes, how to salvage the occasion by being patient and why to respect sugar that it deserves ! With every cake that i make, there is always new things to learn..this lifelong discovery of perfection amazes me and I humbly bow to God and his perfect ways of creation.
With work engagements, consultancy and studies, I have slowed down on making cakes as I often used to do in the past. Nevertheless, I still love sugarcraft and will post my works as and when I manage to do so. 
I wish you all a very happy ushering into 2014 !

Cindrella Cake

I loved making this birthday cake for a sweet little girl from Selebi-Phikwe. It was first time that I tried to make such cake and I learned a lot of new techniques. The cake had to travel 400 kms before being part o the celebration and I held my breath till its arrival there for intactness ! Will experiment more on new designs as requested.
