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. Sadly our very talented son, Robert, passed away on the 19th April 2017 at the tender age of 26 after battling lymphoma for a year. He was an amazing young man with so much talent and I was very lucky to have had my son, Robert, who studied 3D animation, involved at Lulubelle’s Bakes from time to time. He was very artistic and was a huge help in creating the 3D toppers for my cakes. If it wasn’t for Rob, I would never have even thought of getting into the cake industry so I have a lot to be grateful for.
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 two gorgeous girls!
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 endeavor to make whatever cake you want. Just drop me a line on email@example.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 🙂 )
