This coming Saturday it is the Chocolate and Orange Festival at the Stellenbosch Slow Market and yours truly is very excited! It will also be the very first public launch of Human & Rousseau’s new Koekedoor 2 baking book and enthusiasts can look forward to rubbing shoulders with the television stars, taking a selfie with the celebs and brag with an autograph or two! Yippy-dee-doo-dah!

My interpretation of chocolate and orange
So I decided to try my hand on the chocolate and orange theme and sommer bought two chocolate mousse cakes. After I carefully iced the two cakes together I decorated the outside with my mom’s chocolate icing. Nothing fancy – just butter, icing and cacao. For two days I was looking for anything orange – I did not want to go for oranges or nectarines … then I saw some beautiful strelitzias and my orange scissors :-). As they say … the rest is history.
