Love puts the fun in together,
the sad in apart
and the joy in your heart.

I was so privileged to be the 2nd shooter / assistant photographer at my brother's very first wedding shoot in Stellenbosch - have a look at his well capture photos of their special day http://www.amdejager.com/?p=404. Congratulations Gerrit & Karla! Well done AM for a great job.

The couple looked gorgeous, her dress STUNNING, the venue awesome, the decor amazing and the simplicity thereof striking and best of all the weather .... beautiful - blue skies, no rain, no wind and it was in the middle of winter in the Western Cape.

::More pirates::

Last weekend I had the privileged to make another pirate cake for 2 brothers. I wanted something different to the previous pirate cakes I've made.
I made a double layer dark velvet chocolate cake with some buttercream icing and covered it with sugarpaste. Decided to bring in some blue and I just love how the wave effect turned out.

There is some more cakes for the year.

This weekend was quite busy, but will leave it for another post later this week.

Have a good weekend.


:: Hello Kitty ::

11:31 AM Sunday, August 7, 2011

When Mariette asked me to make a Hello Kitty cake for her niece, I wanted to make something different to what I've done earlier this year for my little one. I want to make every cake individual and special.

The cake: Double layer Red Velvet Cake (recipe from Hummingbird)
Icing (inside): Vanilla buttercream icing inside.
Icing (on top): Pink 'marble' icing and decorated with a 'stitched' hello kitty, letters and some flowers.

The birthday girl loved her cake so much, that in the beginning she did not want to share it with her cousins!!! Glad that I could made something special for a special little girl.

I've got a few more cakes lined up until the end of the year and I look forward to making each and every one of them. Have some more planning to do.

Have a good week.
