Located on the first floor of Cavendish Square (towards the Ster Kinekor side), this limited-time-only pop up store is a place where you become the creator of your very own Magnum ice cream masterpiece.

Bullcakes & Cupdogs makes the prettiest cupcakes you have ever seen

So when I was contacted by Natalie Hoare from Bullcakes & Cupdogs to ask whether I’d like to try a batch of her cupcakes, it took me about 30 seconds to have a look at her Facebook page and go:  Hell yes please!

Let me show you exactly why that was:

And oh my goodness…

You have […]

Sorbet, ice cream & macaroon making workshops over at 15 on Orange

I have truly been so lucky of late.  I’ve been invited to do some very interesting things, from cider tasting to drift racing, and it’s definitely been a fun ride.

To then add sorbet making to that list, thanks to the lovely folks at 15 On Orange Hotel… pure awesome.

Myself along with a few other foodie […]

Las Paletas (that’s Colombian for kick-ass, artisan ice lollies folks)

Diana Chavarro is a passionate Colombian who’s been living here in South Africa for about 3 1/2  years now.

Hello cupcake… get into my belly…

I talk to cupcakes.  Yup, I know, I’m weird. 😉  A usual conversation would go down like this:
Hello cupcake… lookin’ sooo pretty, almost you pretty to eat… well I said “almost”, mwhuahahahaha…
This exact conversation in fact went down just last Sat at a friend’s birthday lunch.  You see that’s cause she got each guest […]

Tempting treats at Ma Mére Maison

Olive oil and roasted almond nougat, honey & vanilla bean mashmallows coated in roasted coconut, soft white chocolate and stem ginger fudge…

These are only some of the amazing  things you will be able to sink your teeth into at French style confectioner, Ma Mére Maison.  Hidden away in the Salt Circle Arcade in Salt River, to me it […]

Pimp your biscuit at the Market on the Wharf

I was at the V&A yesterday and quickly popped into the new Market on the Wharf for a return visit.

Something cool I spotted which I didn’t see the first time was Pimp your biscuit.  It’s a little stand just as you come in, opposite Origin Coffee and next to Nap.

They do exactly what the name says, […]

Totally tempting Italian Ice Cream in Stellies

I really do love Stellenbosch – not as much as Cape Town of course 😉 – but I do love the fact that it’s only a quick 30 – 40 min drive away and that once there you feel like you’ve stepped back in time just a teensy bit.  I mean it’s just so […]

Celebrating Global Champagne Day like true ladies of leisure with Taittinger & The Table Bay

Last Friday I took a half day’s leave (because I knew this was going to be a damn goodie) to join the folks from Taittinger SA at the beautiful Table Bay Hotel to celebrate Global Champagne Day… a day which to be honest, I didn’t even know existed, but was very very happy about because as everyone knows, after diamonds […]
