My cake won!

In December 2014 Barco had a Colourful Baking Competition on their facebook page. All you had to do was to bake any colourful cake, cupcake or meringue using their new food colouring gels. Take a picture of the finished product along with the Barco food colouring gels used and post it on their facebook page.

Cake Decorating Folder

So, you started collecting your Cake Decorating magazines and received your first folder. And, if you’re like me, you opened it and thought “where’s the instructions?” 🙂 It took me a while to figure out how the magazines are suppose to fit into the folder. At a market I was doing one Friday evening, I… Read More »

Oreo owl cupcakes

I was asked to make owl cupcakes and to use Oreo biscuits for the eyes. Easy, I thought.  Erm…not. First step is to take the biscuits apart. Hhhmm, not as easy as it looks on tv. They don’t split perfectly with filling on both sides. I tried dividing the filling and spread it on both… Read More »

One year old

While I was away, Gina had a birthday, but we decided to celebrate when I got back. We had a birthday party at Ouma’s house. She had a double-layer birthday cake … and pink cupcakes. She was fascinated by the candle, and couldn’t wait to taste the cake. Gareth had to help, otherwise we would’ve… Read More »

Oh my … he’s going to kiss me

This is my and Gareth’s story … In 2003, I met a presenter of a community radio show at a Christmas function. I started listening and eventually heard Gareth’s voice on air, because he would occasionally visit him in the studio, but I was oblivious to what God was busy doing. One year (I can’t… Read More »

It belongs to my man

… a stunning voice, that is. 🙂 Before I met Gareth, I didn’t know what a voice over was all about, but I soon found out. I went with to a voice over he did … he went into the recording booth and I sat on the other side of the glass with the technical… Read More »
