In 2009 I was asked, by a family friend, to make a cake for a 21st. I loved baking, and looking for new ideas for special occasion cakes, so I jumped at the chance. The rest, as they say, is history. I put a little website together, and advertised on a local classifieds website – I got my first real wedding cake order. For a real client, that was not a friend or family member!
I stood in front of my baked tiers for the wedding cake, and pondered for hours before getting the courage to cover the first cake in fondant. The drive to Pretoria was nerve-wracking. A lot of stress, and adrenaline went into that first wedding cake. That was May 2009. When I look back now, what a simple cake – but boy, was I scared to mess it up!
Considering how much I have learnt since May 2009, I still really like this wedding cake – it is simple, elegant and modern.
