LULUBELLE’S BAKES – CAKE DECORATOR, SOMERSET WEST, WESTERN CAPE PROVINCE, SOUTH AFRICA

CUPCAKES, THEMED BIRTHDAY CAKES, WEDDING CAKES, BABY SHOWER CAKES OR JUST A PLAIN SPONGE CAKE – WE DO IT ALL!

Literally overnight, baking and cake decorating has become my passion!  It is like this little flame that has ignited into a raging fire!  I was retrenched in May 2014 from my full time job (Property Management) so this meant I could get to do my cake decorating all day long!  Wow, how lucky am I? – love it!

When my kids were younger (they are all grown up now and have moved out the house), they were lucky if they got a shop bought or a really home made job – I just didn’t have the knowledge on how to work in fondant or sugar paste so all their cakes were done with splodges of buttercream icing.  I can clearly remember the “Barbie” cakes for both my girls and a Humpty Dumpty cake, being the only ones I could actually manage. I now get to make my grandchildren custom cakes and I absolutely love seeing the joy on their faces when they see it for the first time!

My three children are also very creative.  I am very lucky to have my son, Robert,  who studied 3D animation involved at Lulubelle’s Bakes from time to time.  He is very creative and is a huge help in creating the 3D toppers for my cakes.

my amazing son who designed my logo, helped with toppers and is an inspiration to me!

My eldest daughter, Cheryl McEwan, is also an amazing wedding photographer and there are many times we work together on the same weddings.  At least I know I am assured of getting great photos of my cakes!  Find her amazing work on http://www.cherylmcewan.co.za or on Facebook:  https://www.facebook.com/cherylmcewanphotography/?fref=ts

My youngest daughter, Terry McEwan Swart, makes the most beautiful tutu’s for mom’s and daughters, and some of my client’s have ordered tutu’s for their little ones which have been colour coded to my cake orders for them!  Here’s Terry’s Facebook page:  https://www.facebook.com/FairyTailsTerrysTutus/?fref=ts

My two gorgeous girls!

I also have two lovely kitchen assistants, Priscilla Chiweshe (my star baker!) and Alison Nathanson (my topper queen!).  Without these two lovely ladies, my life would be very different!  They have contributed immensely this past year to the success of Lulubelle’s Bakes – thank you ladies!

Watch out when you see this sign on my car!

Then, last but not least, there is my husband, Colin,  who makes a mean delivery man at the weekends!  He has driven me and my cakes far and wide and he knows to drive  very slowly when there is a cake in the car!  He’s my rock and my right hand man!

I hope you enjoy looking at my creations and I will endeavour to make whatever cake you want.  Just drop me a line on lyndsay.mcewan@gmail.com – if I don’t get back to you immediately it is because I am working on my creations in my kitchen – but I will reply to your email, sms, whatsapp, Facebook message, Instagram message, website message (and whatever other type of communication there is out there 🙂 )
