April 2016: Edible table decorations

I recently watched a YouTube video from Amber Spiegel of SweetAmbs  (now I must admit to complete & utter admiration for this talented lady). Anyway back to the video, it was on turning cookies into edible flowers & using them as table decorations – isn’t that just great to be able to eat the table decorations!

There were 15 cake creators in total, each entering a beautiful creation.

We are proud to have been involved in this unique photo-shoot arranged by Kusjka du Plessis of KDP Photography and hosted by Gelukkie, Paternoster. We were very excited when it was published by The Pretty Blog under the title: Berry Bold Bridesmaid Inspirations. We had such fun coming up with delicious goodies such as rooibos infused milk-tart, honey-bush toffee lollies, condense milk cookies and a very South African koeksister wedding cake! The little succulents are made of fondant – don’t they look realistic.
