Stanford Featured Creative: Caro of DivinebyDesign
An unassuming white buttercream cake stands on the counter. Having had six cakes made for various occasions by Caro over the years, I know this sweet little cake is going to transform into something far beyond its humble beginnings.
The Stanfordian “Caker” (it’s a real term, she assures me), is putting together a birthday cake for the Wife behind ‘Husband Wife Team’ – a duo of flower, lighting and decor specialists from nearby Gansbaai.
‘It’s a birthday cake. She’s very creative, and loves boho, so I’m going with that theme’ Caro says. She finishes off the layer, pops the cake in the fridge to set and shows me the photo she’s using for inspiration. The style is called a ‘Cake Top Forward Arch Cake’. A section is carved off the round cake revealing two decadent layers of raspberry chocolate, and then carefully flipped onto its side. Why aren’t cakes always made like this, I think, admiring the new profile.
‘I’m excited about this one’, Caro says, mixing beautiful rust coloured icing in a small vintage bowl.
