My amazingly creative friend Colette (whom you may remember from this year’s Shavathon, and from several Fun Walks, around Claremont, around Bellville, and around Pinelands) of Cakes and Desserts is famous for the beautiful pastries, desserts and cakes she lovingly makes by hand. Some of them look so exquisite and delicate that you almost don’t want to bite into them… but when you do, the taste sensations that flood your entire being are out of this world.
In the run-up to Christmas, and in keeping with the German tradition (they also bake traditional Stollen and all my favourite German Weihnachtsgebäck), she has decided to create something magical that every child (and many an adult, I’m sure) will love: ginger bread houses.
Otherwise known as Knusperhäuschen.
Now wouldn’t your kids or your grandchildren love something like this as a surprise Christmas gift?
Place your orders now, for one of these lovingly handmade creations at R200.00 each:
tel 021 789 2998
fax 021 789 2999
They are about 30cm high, 20cm wide, and 30 cm long, and take about four days to make on order.
And the entire house is edible – not just the colourful sweeties and cookies that are used as decorations.
