Ok, so I may be pregnant and finally able to eat after months of HG, but irrespective, this list would still stand. Baby belly or not, my obsession and history with dessert is a long one. In fact, it was to my birthday cake that I took my very first step at my first birthday party – the very beginning of my endless and insatiable trek towards cake.
This is by means an exhaustive list but these are my top 5 dessert spots right now in the Mother City:
I just thought I’d let you guys know what I’ve been up to behind the scenes! Aside from completing (more) orders for custom personalised mugs, I’ve also been experimenting with crystal soaps! I made about 150 of them for my wedding as favours, and people loved them! Everyone kept telling me to sell them so I’ve been experimenting and finessing and these are where I’m at so far!
We have been over-the-moon excited about H&M finally launching in South Africa (how has it taken this long??).

I’m yet to meet anyone who can match my sweet tooth (challenge accepted?). So, it’s only natural for me to follow amazing bakers and sweet makers from around the world on Instagram, drooling onto my screen and getting my head filled with baking inspiration.
Filled with bright, colourful and delicious goodies, and tips on how to make your own delectable sweet goods (Winner! Although mine, so far, haven’t turned out quite as wonderful as theirs), these Sweet-stagrammers take the cake!
Like most foodie people, I am an avid cookbook collector, but often they end up sitting on my shelf becoming collectors themselves. Of dust, that is. Until I was lucky enough to attend the launch of South African cookbook legend, Phillippa Cheifitz’ new summer-inspired recipe book, Lazy Days: Easy Summer Cooking. This book, I am happy to announce, has stayed on my shelf the least and has instead spent much of its lazy days in my lap or on my kitchen countertop, pages wide open.
Confession: I can’t stop going on about this book. Seriously. They recipes are simple, elegant and downright delicious! (And I got a signed copy! Squeal!)
