Looking for stunning, custom-made wedding cakes in Johannesburg? Look no further. The owner ofThe Turquoise Squirrel Patisserie was born and raised in Germany and she believes that is where she got her love for baking. Christmas in Germany is filled with homemade cookies and sweets made in her Grandma’s kitchen: the only truly warm room in the entire house, and naturally the best smelling one. At the same time, she was a stereotypical German perfectionist… It’s not unusual for her to grab a ruler and spirit level to make sure her cakes are just right.
When she came to Johannesburg nearly a decade ago she immediately fell in love with the beauty of this country and its people. Since arriving here she got her honours in Fine Arts (WITS), which influences her work hugely. You might find that quite a couple of her cakes or cookies are hand-painted, and she thinks of a biscuit or a fondant-covered cake more as a blank canvas than something to eat. Still, it is very important to her that her confections are delicious, but also works of art that are handcrafted and put together with thought and love. She is always up for a challenge and loves making entirely customized wedding cakes.
