Lacoste Cake



Hi Dolls
Let me start by saying …….. Call me Martha Stewarth…..lol
Oh yes I baked that cake !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I’m so proud of it  (*^,)
This cake was for a 21st birthday party and the birthday boy is Lacoste Crazy…lol
So they decided on a t-shirt cake. Believe me I’ve never made a crocodile that small out of fondant but I got it right first time around…lol
I had fun baking the cake, had some quality time with my eldest daughter she had a blast mixing an liking her fingers most of the time…..lol
When the baking was done she was so tired and went to bed when I did the decorations on the cake , the next morning she was so excited to wake up and see our creation she was so surprised and took most credit for it.
I’m so sorry I didn’t take any pictures of us while we were baking but here’s the end result enjoy!
See you next time

My thoughts …….Oh my word I can’t die at work in the toilet!!!!!!
So there I was in the toilet and the door starts shivering (oo,) my hart started to beat faster terrified of what’s happening. How grateful I was for my life when it stopped and I was still alive …… Thank God!
But imagine feeling terrified for one minute thinking of your children and the people you love, not realizing there’s people out there in the world going thru worse life treating situations then a one minute earthquake.
How amazing is it that one minute can make you be grateful for so many things in your life. We have to realize how blesses we are and thank God each and every day for allowing us to open our eyes and spending time with the people we love.
I’ve read somewhere “If you think your blesses because of money, Then you don’t know the meaning of Blessings.”
Thank you God for my Blessings!
Hope u save where ever u are
See u next time

Runaway Bride!


Hi Dolls

I’m feeling so lazy today……… after the long weekend I just need to sleep it off…….lol
We had a crazy weekend watching soccer believe it or not I’m not a sports person, but yes I did watch some local soccer supporting youth day!
It was so much fun the vibe was nice and we spend our Saturday at the annual Steven Pienaar Soccer Tournament  with the kids……
Monday ( Youth Day )  we planned to spend the day at the grounds watching the final soccer match , but it was so cold that we ended up with popcorn & watching movies ( I even forgot about work). This was a well spend weekend with my boyfriend and baby’s .

The project!
This is a wedding dress I made last year. I call it the runaway bride……….lol ……..long story but I will make it short! The client of the dress never came to collect the dress so now I’m hiring the dress out. Any way the dress was made with feathers in the front  and tulle at the back , I made the bust with tulle and made flowers on the bust for details I will be posting a tutorial on handmade flowers tomorrow!

Hope you enjoyed the post feel free to comment .
See you next time

Black tulle high low banquet dress



Hi Dolls

Today is going to be a long day ……..Monday !!! I have a lot of things to do, my schedule is a bit hectic.
I have a ton of material to get for the orders that just came in over the weekend mostly banquet dresses and a few weddings…… It’s just so funny that I’m going to buy all this material and my sewing machine just died on me L This is just so sad my baby died after 9 years and hundreds of garments she produced for me …..and now I have to trade her in for some new kid on the block…… L Well I won’t give up on her she is the best thing that ever happened to me!

The Project
This is a Banquet / Prom dress that I made two months ago. My client wanted the dress on the picture but with lace sleeves, so I made the dress with taffeta, tulle and lace. The dress turned out great and she loved it.

Hope you enjoyed the post
