Run by an expat mum, Giraffe & Hippo produces gorgeous custom birthday cakes that will delight kids and adults alike! Michelle the culinary artist extraordinaire responsible for the cakes above tells us ” This is my craft. This is my passion. I grew up with a love for art and painting, this has been my outlet for creativity the past few years. I work mainly with fondant, but you will also see a variety of media, for example, hand paints and edible paper, and styles used in my cakes. Always trying out new techniques with an aim to create something new and unique. From the start of discussing ideas with clients, to baking and decorating, up to seeing happy clients when the cake is delivered, has all been very rewarding. It has always been important that I enjoy what I do, which means making sure I am completely happy with the final cake designs.”
The cakes are made with quality ingredients and their pride/signature flavor is the moist chocolate cake with ganache frosting that uses a blend of West African and French cocoa beans.
By the way, did we mention they also run cake decorating workshops for children and adults. You can make it a fun social event with your family or friends in the comfort of your home or an activity for a kid’s birthday party. Just send them a message and they are more than happy to discuss making any number of possibilities a reality! From Kids and adults birthday cakes to special occasion, anniversary cakes and wedding cakes they are happy to help you create something special and unique.
