Who said ‘a rose is a rose is a rose’?!

Something strange is happening to the wiring in my brain. I think it’s called seeing-things-through-patisserie-tinted-glasses.   On a recent trip to the new Cape Quarters in Cape Town, I discovered that a lamp is not a lamp and a pair of shoes is not a pair of shoes!

Beautiful forms and colours are now either seen as patisseries: ‘Wow, what an amazing sugar-sculpture!’

Shoes for the Choux Girl

OR as inspiration for future patisseries: ‘Now that would make an interesting cake!’

The teapot above can be bought at IMISO  The outrageous lamps can be sourced from Castelyn Berg What I loved about Christof (designer and owner, pictured below) is that he sees patisserie as an art form.

As does Louis, from Dillon and Jada (.com) who said that finding a pair of shoes you like is just like biting into something delicious… ‘a silent moment where you are just in heaven…’ 

Needless to say, I just HAD to have those shoes!

'A silent moment' ...
