THE STORY

a Mom on a Mission

Lizette Steyn

Founder

Everyone has a story. In fact I have quite a few stories, but the ones that I love the most is about food. I love spending time in the kitchen creating dishes, tasting new ingredients, testing out new kitchen gadgets and don’t even get me started on my love for gastronomy, cakes and gourmet cupcakes!
 
Making food ‘different’ and gorgeous is just an absolute passion of mine. Now, sharing my bakes and brews with people all over the world just brings me such joy. I recently got hospitalized for having several seizures due to inflammation on the brain, which was brought on by the epidural I had during my 3rd babies birth. It left me confused about where I fit, because God saved me for a reason… I soon learned that I can communicate extremely well creatively, which I now took to a level where it can work for me.
 
I want to cook and share. I want my kids to know that you won’t die if you eat a piece of raw cookie dough and how good it is for you to stuff your mouth full of beet-shoots and chia-seeds.
I have also become much more aware of what I put in my mouth and find that my tongue almost gravitates towards odd things that it never would have before like gooseberry jam or kale. I am enjoying this journey and I want to make the best of what God has planned for me. Honoring him in every meal plan, dish, cake or cupcake I deliver. Thanking him with my cooking, for saving me for a reason. Clearly I haven’t tasted all he has for me yet!
 
Welcome to my journey and thank you for sharing it with me.

SO YOU WOULD LIKE A CAKE?

WHERE TO START

It seems like a lot to read, but It will answer all your questions before you even knew you had them. So please take the time to read the guide and the T&C’s.

THE GUIDE:

How many people does a cake feed?

You can decide between a Square cake and a Round cake depending on the design you would like.

ROUND

15cm (6inch) – 8-10 servings

20cm (8inch) – 20-30 servings

25cm (10 inch)  – 30-50 servings …

SQUARE

15cm – +-18 servings

25cm – +-30 servings

(Depending on how you cut it, above is a small cutting guide)

 

What is a Tier and What is a Layer?

A Single tier is when you put 2 or 3 layers of cake of the same size on top of each other.

A Tier is when you have a bigger size layer cake on the bottom and a smaller layer cake on top. This will count as 2 tiers.

What flavours I have available that you can choose from.

Sponge ( The cake part)

  • Butter Vanilla
  • Chocolate
  • Strawberry
  • Raspberry
  • Cappuccino
  • Toffee
  • Caramel Popcorn
  • Salted Pretzel
  • Lemon
  • Bubblegum
  • Blueberry
  • Choc-Mint
  • Oreo Cookie
  • Candy Cane
  • CheeseCake
  • Coconut
  • Hazelnut

What’s in the middle? (The X-Factor!)

You can have the cake filled with Any of the above Flavours in the following creams.

American Butter Cream – ( Butter & Icing Sugar )

Itallian Merangue Butter Cream – ( a delightful egg white buttercream)

Cupcake Corner Butter Cream – ( American Buttercream with fresh Cream Whip )

What’s on Top? (To Fond or not to Fond)

Fondant is used to cover some cakes after Butter Cream is applied to change the look of a cake OR to add special figurines etc. Fondant is NOT almond paste. It is a mixture of prepared Marshmallows & Icing Sugar and can be Eaten.  A few days is needed in advanced to create and dry any figurines. Especially in our climate.

Drips

Chocolate Ganache is a mixture of Cream and Chocolate that is used to create a drip effect on the cake OR when Metallic Colours are wanted for drip I use Icing sugar and lemon juice

Macarons

I can add Macarons to your cake at an extra cost, no one in Ballito is currently making them due to the Humidity and they need to be brought in from a supplier. A few days notice is needed. Colour can not be guaranteed. I can however make Meringues in any colour fill it with buttercream to make a mock macaron.

Edible Prints

Edible Prints can be added to your cake, but I need to order them a week ahead from my supplier so keep that in mind. They are also at an extra cost.

Rice Paper edible Designs

These can be created as well, but again, a weeks notice is required.

When I get prices of the cake what is included?

Your cake price includes:

  • The best ingredients
  • Baking of the cake
  • Electricity and Water used
  • Time and Effort
  • Expertise and patience
  • All the time it takes to chat on whatsapp discussing the cake & design
  • And the packaging.

So it will have costs added.

Please note that under no circumstances can anyone request for a cake to be delivered at 9am and at 8am request me to add flowers or balloons or things that require special attention, I am unfortunately not Willy Wonka and I don’t have my own factory (as much as I’d like one) .
