Marcelle & Jay celebrated their love for each other by getting married on the beach in Dwarskersbos. Marcelle’s parents home was turned into the most amazing of wedding venues. This wedding was one of the biggest commissions that I have done. The cake & dessert items were all centered around the sea or South Africa. The wedding cake was a double barrel tropically inspired coconut cake with almond tones filled with a tangy passion-fruit curd. The coral inspired hand-made topper was made from pastillage. The brioche doughnuts were decorated to resemble sea urchins. Many thanks to Anna Pepper Photography for the photo.

I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the beautiful creations you made for our wedding day. I believe you had put your heart and soul into making the dessert table, and it showed- it was just absolutely magical. EVERYTHING was done to perfection. The bits that I tasted, like the wedding cake, doughnuts and cheesecakes were wonderful. I wish I had tasted everything! The guests raved about the puddings, and there were  a few ‘smash & grab’ moments when they wanted take-aways after the party! All the cakes were demolished within a day.
