How many people does it serve?

This should be an easy question to answer, but in South Africa, it’s complicated, due to our colourful multi-cultural rainbow nation.

  1. In an Anglo Saxon household, each pizza/meal should feed between 4 to 6 guests.
  2. In a Mediterranean, Ethnic or African home it could feed as little as 1 to 3 people for a single meal as food needs to be experienced in large quantities.
  3. If you’re of Scandinavian extraction, each meal could last you a month!

Then we need to look at your emotional state, as that is a determining factor when dealing with quantities.

  1. Have you had a terrible day with your boss?
  2. Did you fight with your spouse?
  3. Are your kids driving you insane?
  4. Is your wi-fi slower than the Groot Trek?
  5. Is the lockdown getting to you?
  6. Did that hot guy from the gym eventually whatsapp you?
  7. How are you doing with those skinny jeans?
  8. Is your mother-in law doing what mother-in laws do?
  9. What season of Game of Thrones are you watching?

All these contributing factors could influence the amount you will choose to eat; Ranging from “just a slice/bite” to “call in the kitchen Calvary we’re going down babies”!

METHOD

HOW TO CREATE YOUR MOTHER’S DAY FLOWER SWISS CARROT CAKE

  1. Defrost your cake as per the instructions on the box.
  2. Once the cake has thawed and you are ready to serve, bring your flowers and coconut and let’s prepare the cake. It won’t take you long.
  3. Firstly, we begin by placing the coconut shavings onto the edge of the cake, all the way round. It doesn’t have to be precise.
  4. Now the flowers. Choose which flowers will be your main focus. Usually 2 to 3 large flowers. Ours are the Gerbera Daisies. Find different sizes. Add them in the centre in a cluster.
  5. Now start adding your softer flowers, our are the lisianthus. You can use small white roses or those beautiful light greenish-white hued roses. Tuck them gently on top, on the side of the cake, on top of the daisies, add some height. You are basically creating a small cluster of flowers.
  6. We are using the blue gum for the slices. If you have another small green cutting that you would like to use you can, but we suggest to keep it simple.

IF YOU WANT TO DRESS EACH SLICE INDIVIDUALLY

Take all your toppings, including the blue gum and dress each slice individually. Remember your plate is an extension of your styling. So don’t hesitate to dress the plate too if you so like.

Each slice a memory. Tell her you love her as often as you can. Happy Mother’s!
