Could you please tell us a little bit about you and your passion? How did it all start?
I am a mom of 2 boys and a girl. Ever since my children began school my time stretched out into long boredom filled hours and I was desperate to find something to occupy myself.
I have always harbored a love for baking. It was not until a few years ago a function having crept up at my youngest sons school ,that I produced a batch of cupcakes like no other I have ever made. Moving away from the traditional look of slapping the icing on the cupcake ,my self-created pastel swirls were a big hit. The teachers ,children and parents were very impressed. No one seemed to see such unique swirls before.
My ignorance turning to curiosity, I began experimenting on my own. The pictures you see today are the consequences of my playing around with the little knowledge and supplies I have.
The possibility of a successful outcome drives me to drastic lengths. The vision of the result begs for me to work harder. What I find most exciting is the challenge of an idea I dreamed up into a reality. I draw inspiration from beauty around me… most times I have no idea what to create and playing with the fondant the Almighty inspires an idea.
What’s your favorite ingredient and why?
I use the finest ingredients available here in South Africa, striving for quality and enhancing flavour and will not compromise…callebaut or lindt chocolate,Nomu Madagascan vanilla extract , Nomu cocoa. The ingredients are the foundation of a good bake.

Living in the South African countryside with the nearest city being a 45 min drive my situation does not allow me to create a thriving business. At the present it has to remain more as a hobby.
