Turquoise and Peach...

One of our favourite colour combinations at the Bakeshop. These cupcakes were made for a client who had seen a similar design featured on The Cutest Party on the Block, and asked us to create the same cuppies.
We love the end result!

Beach Fun!!

Recently a Bakeshop client from Johannesburg who was coming to Durban for a holiday ordered a birthday cake for her daughter Zia. And what better themed cake for a Durban holiday than the Beach!

We were sure to include all the elements that make up a great day at the beach!

A Pastel Quilted Surprise

My best friend Aadila has always wanted a monogrammed cake for her birthday. So last December (yes, this post is very late!) I decided to make her one in cute pastel colours... And she was thrilled!

Birthday Bouquet!

We just love delivering cupcake bouquets to people on their birthdays! They always think they're flowers, till they get close enough to realise they're cupcakes! And we always get a great reaction!


We made this Skittles themed cake for 16 year old Sahfiya, who is an absolute Skittles lover!

A Tiffany box....

Check out this Tiffany box cake we made for a Tiffany inspired bridal shower, with cupcakes to match...

The Cake Lady...

One of my good friends, Saadiya, is an absolute genius with words. She recently wrote this poem dedicated to me!! So cute, and it tells the exact reason why I love baking and designing these beautiful edible creations. I was so touched when I read it, I had to share it with The Bakeshop fans.

Thank you Saadiya! These words will forever inspire me and always remind me why I love my Bakeshop...

At the Bakeshop we are obsessed with colourful sprinkles. The most traditional cake decoration and definitely the most fun! For my Dad's 50th Birthday we decided to throw him a very traditional old school birthday party, to take him bake to his childhood days. Balloons, streamers, blowouts, party hats!! Oh what birthday fun! The cake we made fit the party perfectly!

Visit The Cutest Party on the Block to view more pictures of the fun table decor!

Dad and my nephew...

We just had to get in on the action too!

Pretty in Pastel...

Have a look at this oh so cute ruffle cake we made for a pastel themed bridal shower. The vanilla sponge was done in  pink ombre layers, so it was even prettier when cut. Wish we could have gotten a picture of that! All decor for the event was done by our fav events company, The Cutest Party on the Block.

We added a touch of whimsical with this soft pink lace bunting.

We also made these yummy vanilla cupcakes and marshmallow pops for the event. Sweet, simple and delicious!
