A look back at 2012 as we wait to welcome 2013! Happy New Year!

Hello all,

Its been quite some time since my first blog earlier this year! We have been rushed off our feet! Its been a great debut year for us at Insanely Cakes and we would like to take this opportunity to thank each and everyone of our fans, clients and suppliers who have supported us throughout 2012! 
We have also managed to reach our 2000 followers milestone on our Insanely Cakes Facebook Page and nearly reached 1000 followers milestone on our Insanely Cakes Twitter Page - which we are astounded and truly humbled by!

Insanely Cakes started out way back in early February 2012 with our first cake being my harshest critic to date; our daughter's Hello Kitty birthday cake:


Since then we have grown, met many fabulously talented bakers in the Caking Industry:

The silver fox himself, Paul Hollywood with The Insane Baker - Insanely Cakes aka Nirusha Govender

The lovely Peggy Porschen with The Insane Baker - Insanely Cakes aka Nirusha Govender

and we have been blessed to be involved with some fabulous cake and cupcake projects - here are just a few highlights of the year:












 Our cupcake and cake decorating classes both private and in partnership with Hobbycraft UK:







Our latest albums showcasing work and projects undertaken,  plus cupcake decorating classes both private and those in partnership with Hobbycraft UK can be seen on both our Insanely Cakes Facebook Page and for the latest funny, lighthearted cake related humour including messages from our celebrity followers why not join us on our Insanely Cakes Twitter Page ....

As this year comes to an end and we wait to ring the New Year in - we are grateful for all of our blessings and the unconditional support from all of you out there; we would like to leave you with some words for thought that a colleague shared with us recently:

To your enemy, forgiveness.
To your opponent, tolerance.
To your friend your heart.
To a customer, service.
To all, charity.
To every child, a good example.
To yourself, respect.

Here is our final cake made for 2012 which was a Jolly Santa Family Christmas Cake which sadly we could not bring ourselves to devour as my 5 year old daughter had become Besties with Santa and couldn't possibly eat him!




To the team behind the scenes - Jenny and Vaz, thank you for all your hard work and support throughout the year! Have a fabulous New Year lovely people wherever in the world you may be.... here's to health, prosperity and lots of cake! Be prepared for an exciting, jam packed cakey sweetness in 2013! 

Big cakey hugs and love to you all!  The Insane Baker! xxx
