Oh, dear… If you weren’t craving something gorgeous and delicious, you will now. There is nothing quite so alluring as a beautifully crafted cake.
So, I’d like to share with you some gorgeous baked goods from a lady who actually needs no introduction. I’ve admired Nikki Albertyn’s baked goods and her ever so gorgeous Instagram feed for quite some time. I also had the pleasure of eating super yummy bagels she prepared for the Zana Workshop. You can imagine my excitement when I happened to stumble onto an Instagram post linking to her very own shop! Eep! I’m so excited and incredibly jealous of all the Cape Town folk living amongst these amazing creations.
Lion Heart Pâtisserie Studio is officially opening next week on the 1st of February in Woodstock, Cape Town. The opening is just in time to spoil a loved one with Nikki’s Orange Flavoured French Almond Confections for Valentine’s Day. I went through every nook and cranny of her new website, thus obviously clicking on ‘Occasion’ hoping to see the word wedding there. I did, however, the occasion that hit home most was ‘Just because…’ All I have to say to that is, damn right! You don’t need a special occasion for glorious cake! Though this does not stop me from wondering how on earth I’m going to get a cake from Cape Town to Pretoria for a wedding. Nikki, congratulations! Your ‘shop’ is inspiring and so are you!
