As an individual with a positive outlook towards my challenges, I'veembarked on the most interesting journeys in my life which I intend on documenting through my personal blog in order to assist future entrepreneurs.

Tsholo's Cakeoff | Campaign

 

I love fruit cakes, the old-fashioned kind, and always have. When I was running my cafe, I use to bake from traditional recipes. I always had been a fruit cake fan, traditional at the time, and that's the reason why I have develop a special taste for those cakes. I use to watch pastry chefs baking a layers weeks ahead of events, wrapped them in cheesecloth, and doused them lightly every week with whiskey. When the time came to ice the cake. 

 

Tsholo Msimango, is a one-woman operation, "The Queen of Pastry," As I like to call her and she gave me her recipe soon after the Lancewood Cakeoff competition opened for entry. Listening to her as she detailed the instructions made my mouth water, and I couldn't wait to try it. It is a fruit cake jam-packed with mango, strawberry, and pineapple. this cheesecake would be splendid for a birthday cake, is easy to make, and keeps well in the refrigerator for several weeks.

She has pride herself on her skill as a young upcoming pastry chef, and I'm extremely proud of her achievements. Get the recipe on the link below and cast your vote. I have already cast mine in support of this young talent.......
