what a lovely cake for a precious first Birthday
Lisa wrote to us: 
Hi There, I came across your website while I was looking for baking classes in the JHB area. I have had no training and I have discovered (through making cakes for my 2 daughters) that I really enjoy cake decorating. I just finished this cake for my daughters first birthday. Please share your comments and thoughts on the cake. I used fondant to mould and create the Ladybug topper and all the flowers and little ladybugs.
Thanks and Regards, Lisa

The biggest ever Barbie cake?

We're not sure, but we think this is pretty much the biggest Barbie cake we've ever seen... Tori Spelling is one of those celebs who believes in 'go big or go home'! Her family always gets the best she can give, big ups to her having her heart in the right place. Send us your Barbie cakes to feature here!


How can I store or freeze my cakes?

The answers to the question we all ask! Whether you're simply saving your cake to serve later in the day or you're saving the leftovers for tomorrow, storing it right will keep it fresh, tasty, and looking good.



Store one-layer cakes in their baking pans, tightly covered. Store multilayer cakes in a cake-saver or under a large inverted bowl. If the cake has a fluffy or cooked frosting, insert a teaspoon handle under the edge of the cover to prevent an airtight seal and moisture buildup. Cakes with whipped cream frostings should be stored in the refrigerator.
