The power of berries blue and a Birthday cake

The finished lady but before we got to this, there was just blueberries

The finished lady but before we got to this, there was just blueberries

This past weekend was my nephew and brother in-law’s birthday’s. My sister called and ordered one big ass cake for both of them to which I said, errrrr yaahhhhh!

The order: A 10 inch and 3 layered maderia cake enrobed in fresh blueberry buttercream, rocket ship and stars with virgo insignia all around the sides of the cake. I would also like a deep blueberry colour so that the white buttercream against it will have a deep contrast so add some purple colouring to the butter cream. Continue reading

Women, births and Oooo yes…FOOD

Spent some time last weekend with some very special women from my antenatal yoga class, sharing all thing birth, labour, breath, contractions, baby feeding, baby wearing and beyond in our Empowered birth session.  Sharing in the meaning of Empowerment…….of being weary of the sometimes social trapping of who we “should” take to our births just because that’s what everyone expects and reflecting on if this energy will actually serve in relaxing us and opening our body and cervix up. 

Feeling into the fact that firstly, we are enough unto ourselves to birth our baby and we have everything we need for this to happen. Secondly if we would like someone to be there, feeling into the type of energy we would want around us. Perhaps;

One that will not make you think about what they did or did not do last week or last month, last year?
One that we don’t have to constantly watch our backs for and check how they are feeling and if they are having a good time,
One that will not be moved when that Raw, Powerful and Strong voice of the Divine comes from deep inside and we begin to roar as the goddess that we are and as the energy moves to birth baby,
One that will be wholeheartedly there, in service of the force moving in you and trusts without a doubt that you are enough.

And just knowing that whatever happens, you are perfect just as you are, nature did NOT make a mistake with you and you are so enough. This is true empowerment. Still feeling so grateful to life and to all the ladies that came to share in the powerful session with such open hearts, Thank you!

Sooooo of course, I took care of ma ladies and made little yum yums to eat, as we all know how ravenous we can be when carrying another being around in your womb :-). All the food was dairy-free (so I could join in food fun too) and no one noticed so let’s get to it shall we.

Wanted to share it with you all out there, so we’ll begin with the beautiful mini Lemon cupcakes in the next post but in the meantime, pictures? Ooooh yes, please.

Journey of a Birthday cake….in pictures

P1020214

It’s my sisters birthday today and she ordered herself a cake from me. She knew what cake she wanted but left the flavour of the buttercream up to me! (Excited? Yah haaaa!). So I decided to go for something exciting. Not a flavour I’ve used recently but one we used a lot where I worked in Paris and after a guessing game over at my Facebook page……the answer is Cherry.

So here she is, Lemon cake dressed in elegantly in Cherry flavoured swiss meringue buttercream. It’s all in pictures as today, words are failing me. Also, who knew Cherry turned a purple-ly colour when it mixes with buttercream….hmmmmm

Enjoy mes cheris!

Ps: I just received these comments below as she took the cake with her to work. It made me smile comme ça :-), Continue reading

Mommy nature and HER effortless art

Om my dears, want to start by saying thanks again for the souls that come across this site to read me.  It always makes me feel mushy and grateful and I know I say this a lot but I’ll say it again…Merci Beaucoup.

So today marks the last night for me in Paris (flight is at 9:15 tonight) and like I said earlier, I do like/love to take pictures of pretty things so I wanted to leave you with some magic of mommy nature that I have been lucky to capture with my beloved camera without modification and just with help of our brother, the Sun.

Ok now it’s time for shower, brush teeth, buy some french macaroons, come back to pack some more…pheww! and then see you on the other side 😉
