orange cake with orange buttercream + my new cookbook + a give-away

I figured it was finally time to talk about my new cookbook since its busy rolling into stores around South Africa as I type . It’s very exciting. Less frightening than the first time I will admit, and I’m feeling proud and happy that I have put this body of work out there. Its called Sweet, and is loaded with delectable vanilla, caramel, chocolate and fruit treats. It’s also very close to my heart.

Sweet is a collection of recipes that swings the pendulum from desserts and puddings, across confectionary, to baked treats at the other end. I’ve tried to include a little bit of everything I love; to cover them all I would need a second (and probably a third) book! I have a chronic sweet tooth that has steered me towards my passion for baking and dessert making, both of which are a source of comfort and great pleasure in my life.
