Denise & Matt, Olive Green, Grey & White Wedding

Roses and Olive Leaf Wedding CakeOlive Green & Grey Wedding1

Denise & Matt were married yesterday in the beautiful and tranquil setting at Kloofzicht Lodge. What a pleasure it was to be a part of their special day and to make their wedding cake and cupcakes. Once again, I had an easy going bride, ( I have yet to meet one who hasn’t been an awesome client!). Denise described the layout of her tables and her decor ideas and then let me run with my creativity using the olive green, grey and white of her colour scheme for the day. Denise chose vanilla cake with loads of caramel chocolate chips and a raspberry flavoured buttercream and I ganached it in a silky dark chocolate before covering with sugar paste. The sugar paste roses and addition of soft pretty olive leaves added to the simple elegance of this cake.

The cupcakes in the matching flavour, popping with melted caramel chips were a delight to the guests with a variety of pretty toppings in the olive green, grey and white. Two hearts joined in a beautiful ceremony were depicted in the two hand moulded and embossed hearts on the cupcakes and soft ruffled flowers with pearly centres and roses and rolled roses brought together the elegant feeling of this wedding. Thank you Sue for your feedback this morning and once again I love knowing that everyone loved the cake and cupcakes…..the best reward for any baker!  You must have been so proud of your beautiful daughter yesterday, what a stunning bride. Wishing Denise and Matt a wonderful and memory filled life together!

Mothers Day Cupcakes

Pink & Peach Mothers Day Cupcakes

Last Sunday we celebrated Mothers Day here in South Africa and it was a gorgeous winter day for all of us moms to be treated. I know I was more than spoilt with exquisite pottery mugs and bowl and roses from my husband, my favourite MAC make-up from my daughter and Gordon Ramsey’s Home Cooking from my son. After a delicious lunch at Frenzi, I could honestly say I had a brilliantly relaxing day with my family so thank you guys!

As all moms love a sweet treat on their special day I advertised my Mothers Day Cupcakes for sale with the proceeds going towards the TrinityHouse School Debs and Squires Fund-Raising, 2014. I was really touched that so many friends and clients ordered for this occasion and generously supported this fund-raising at the same time. I  just want to send out a huge thank you to you all for your orders, my business rocks because of all of you!

I loved how these embossed pale peach hearts complemented the embossed blue flowers and thanks to Martha Stewart’s alphabet mold & Ceire’s patient molding of all these M’s the cupcakes were a perfect gift for any mom.

As I celebrated with my children I remembered the friends and family who tragically no longer have their children to hold on this special day and all the moms whose children were just a bit too far away to hold. No matter where our children are, as a mother, we will always feel blessed to have had our children grace our lives with their uniqueness and we will hold them close to our hearts forever.
