A week before easter, I received a phone call from a lovely client who wanted a cake for her dear little grandson’s Christening which was to be celebrated on Easter Sunday. When she casually mentioned that his name was Noah, I knew right away that this would be an opportunity to create something very special. Our family has a Heavenly son called Noah and I felt such a heart connection to this display.
Well…that was intense!
This past month has consolidated my long held oppinion that our big life is just plain crazy! I hardly know where to start. I spent two weeks in bed sick as a dog….not a nice way to get a break!! Thankfully my angel mother came to the rescue and stopped the family ship from sinking. She is a whizz around our home. All of the washing gets done, folded AND put away….no mean feat when I have about three loads a day. She defrosted our freezer, cleaned out my disastrous Tupperware drawer, washed all of the bed sheets AND blankets….feed our brood, cleaned up, washed up, played cards with the kids every night and had our home ship shape in no time! She is very efficient.
I wish I was more like her.
This rustic cake appeals to the Bohemian in all of us. It’s rough, rugged appearance disguises a delicious, moist Chocolate pumpkin cake slapped together with crunchy peanut butter frosting.
I used my favourite
which transferred well into three 6 inch round cake tins. I made a little extra frosting so I could lavish it wildly all over the outside of the cake, before pouring dark chocolate ganache over the top.
Way too much fun for one cake!
A current trend emerging through the party styling and wedding circuits lately has been
This style takes seemingly ordinary objects of industry and uses them as focal points, backdrops or centrepieces for dessert tables, parties and even weddings. From raw factory lighting, old tin drawers, tools and steel scaffolding, the Industrial element brings a new kind of ‘wow’ to party styling.
Hello everyone. I’m back.
I have been away on a lovely little trip, while dear hubby took our son skiing. I thought it was time to bundle my girls up, drive over the mountain and visit grandparents. How wonderful to be spoilt with hugs, warm fires, delicious home cooked meals and lavished with all of the love and nurture that only your parents can give ……ahhh. It was a time of refreshment and relaxation. Just what every Mama needs now and then. I was even able to sleep in!!! What a concept….sigh…
These lovely cakes were made for a special lady whose son was turning 21. After tasting my delicious chocolate pumpkin cake with peanut butter frosting, she was adamant that this was the cake for her son. I put white chocolate ganache on the cake and then buttercream icing. I topped the cake with a hand made ribbon garland.
