Cake Highlights of 2013

5 Jan

The year that was… – a year of experimentation in the world of sugar art.

I’ve been a pastry chef most of my professional life & about a year and a half ago, life pushed me into the wonderfully sweet world of fondant cakes. It all started when a friend at church approached me to make a birthday cake for his wife. I’d dabbled with sugar molding a wee bit in the past and wanted to have another crack at it. “Sure” I said to the enquiry. With that, many other opportunities and cake projects sprung up keeping me elbow deep in buttercream & plastic icing in the days following.

Here, are just a few of my favourite cakes in the past year….

I feel incredibly proud to share some of my work with you, dear reader. Apart from being someone who enjoys eating good grub, I also take great pleasure in creating beautiful edibles. Yes, 2013 was a fantastic chapter. I celebrate in gratitude the many highs & learn in reflection from the periodic lows. Ultimately, looking ahead towards greater & bigger things in 2014! Over-the-moon to have you along for the ride.

PS: Want me to customize a one-of-a-kind cake for your special event?
