THE CAKE GALLERY
To me as a young mother, everything was to be taken with a pinch of salt. While I was fascinated by the thought of slowly picking up myself to put back together the long lost sleight of hands, I also feared enduring failure by going against all the unsolicited advice.
" It's a piece of heaven.I appreciate your work and I feel you work with love and emotion unlike a traditional cake shop " says Dr Aseel, my client who was elated with her son's cake.
"Emira" Because there is no reason why I should call this cake by any other name.
It's hard to get a lot of family members by your side when you have decided to birth as an expat.
She wanted to take these cuppies to the dunes and celebrate her birthday with her squad. Now, how cool is that. I must say I have never had such adventurous clients before, hence the name "Adventuress"
I still recall browsing through the magazine last September at Four Squares Cafe. I decided on buying two copies, when the manager said that it's not for sale.
"Little Star" they called him...
Brown and gold. A combination that excites me so much. Very earthy. Very antique. Very vintage.
Chocolate spheres. Some in gold. Some ever so lightly clad in fragments of gold. A large eccentric portion of edible gold leaf on the body of the cake. And a gentle spray of gold paint for a celestial touch.
A mother and baby Giraffe. The warmth and affection between them. The fashion in which the mother gazed down at her baby. The parched brown summer feels. A dried branch. I wanted it all in the scene.

I am 35 weeks pregnant, sailing into the last weeks of my term, tired, sore yet anxiously waiting to birth the little human growing inside me.
The ease of making this is kind of overrated and I have had horribly brewed cups at different places and even gone wrong myself a number of times resulting in bitter, sour or way too sweet endings.
The original recipe was passed on to me by mummy and it's hard to even get close to what her pot tastes like!
