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.

Teddy Bear, Winnie the Pooh, Soccer Ball and Jersey, Purse Cake

Hi Friends ! Its has been a long spell of work, new year works, an official trip to India and academic pursuit are keeping me busy and I have not been able to make cakes, as often as I would have liked too. Was busy with my proposal for Phd and  finally received my admission at University of South Africa. These are some of the cakes that I made for some friends from Gaborone, who I could not refuse, especially for kids, who were celebrating their birthdays. Will continue to learn and indulge in creativity.

This dress cake was for my friend's daughter who was turning One. The theme of this cake was based on the dress that she wore in the evening. It was new learning of the process on how to shape the profile of the cake - three eggless cakes of flavours of chocolate and vanilla with white chocolate ganache.
