Loving…Rachelle’s Beautiful Bespoke Cakes

Oh my goodness.  I’m not sure how one can eat something that is so beautiful.  Last night I stumbled across the Rachelle’s website, and I was immediately smitten with the beautiful and delicate baked goods.  They do a range of cakes for weddings and other celebrations, but I was captivated by the intricate detail in the cupcakes and cookies.  If you’re looking for some inspiration for your Valentine’s day baking, look no further! (Sorry SA ladies, Rachelle’s is in the UK).

Loving…Pukka teas

I’m a sucker for beautiful packaging, and these organic teas from Pukka caught my eye recently.  Each box is beautifully designed, and the different flavours look super yummy (I had to resist buying a box, unfortunately they were a bit pricey, but perfect for a treat or as a gift for a tea-a-holic).  If you live in SA, Pukka herbal teas are available in selected Pick ‘n Pays.

Loving…vintage teacups

I often see beautiful vintage teacups at secondhand shops and markets (like the Milnerton Market).  They can be so pretty and versatile, take a look at all the things they can be used for!  Put some fresh flowers in them to spruce up a tea party table, or place a candle in each one (you don’t have to be fancy and make your own candles, you can just use tealights or other small candles).  You can also fashion a cupcake stand or a pincushion.  Any other ideas?
