Another Dekadent baby shower

Wendy gave us an idea for a baby shower cake she wanted from us. We designed a cool pink teddy bear to go with the cake theme with a custom “it’s a girl” print posted up on rooted wire. The cake was truly a pretty one and definitely worthy to be centre of attention with Mum-to-be. The cake was a pretty pink with grey and…

60 shades of green

Nqobile wanted a special 60th birthday cake. Was a package to celebrate the years gone by of a wonderful and beautiful soul – with her favourite colours especially different shades of green. When we heard different shades of green, the first thing that struck us was…. yes you guessed it – Ombrè!! So we decided to design how we were going to use the ombrè…

We think the days of having more than one cake for same day functions are possibly numbered. We did a split cake for Nana’s two kids last week. The idea of different themes on one cake seems quite strange but when done properly can…

Ombre Cake

We decided to mess around this past week to bring on some innovation as well as indulge in some of the old school cake designs.

These look very inviting to just cut a piece but there are a few who would be skeptical due to…
