Love and Cake are synonymous
You know what I mean – cake is something we all enjoy either a little or a bit too much.
Cake is a bit of a treat – a celebration to be shared with the ones you love. We all remember cake being a part of family gatherings, birthdays, parties. So to me cake is part of the essence of Love – something that is shared with those you hold closest. Cake is a gift of sweetness.
I began making cakes by myself when I was 9 years old. I remember making a tray bake of sponge, cutting it up into little squares then covering them with different coloured icing and different flavours – it was magic! I loved the whole thing of sharing cake with my little sister and parents and my friend next door.
So when did I start making raw cakes? I can honestly say that it was not a conscious decision. After attending one of Kate Magic’s amazing raw chef courses, I started getting ideas that just dropped out of the ether. I scribbled them down and just went into the kitchen to experiment and create. its four years now since my raw cake journey began and the inspirations just keep on coming – throughout the first year I felt inspired to create all the cakes you can see here on the website. I have to say that I don’t really have a sweet tooth and much prefer savoury food but I love the reactions I get from my cakes, and actually, being raw and good for you, they’re never too sweet anyway.
How does love really equate to cake though? I just feel that there’s not enough real love in the world. People these days are bereft of the sense of love; receiving a hug, a compliment, a kind gesture . . .we are bereft of the spiritual sweetness that we so need. Giving a cake is a way of saying ‘I Love You’. Love, may not always be in the romantic sense, but in the sense of appreciation, kindness and care. We all need a little more sweetness in our lives these days I’m sure you’ll agree!
With love in mind, I’ve come up with a very special little Love Muffin as an exclusive Limited Edition Cake Gift for Valentines Day.
