TOMS Shoe Drop Family Reunion Cake

A pair of TOMS for the Shoe Drop Family Reunion! The cake features a 3-D pair of TOMS, the classic red representing the original shoe drop location, Argentina, and the white "Style Your Sole" with all the guests names written on it. (Thanks to everyone who came to my Style Your Sole party :) I think they were the biggest shoes I have made so far!

Golf Ball Birthday Cake

A golf ball birthday cake made for my good friend Archna's dad's birthday! He loves to golf so a golf ball was appropriate with him sitting next to it, ready to get a hole-in-one!

Vanilla cake layered with a whipped strawberry filling topped with chocolate cake.

If you have any baby showers or children's birthdays coming up, check out Archna's online children's boutique, Parasols!

She carries the cutest clothing for babies, girls and boys, as well as great gifts such as handmade quilts, daybag, and toys. A percentage of proceeds from all sales go to Room To Read, which helps children in the developing world gain the lifelong gift of an education.

I am so excited to share with you Food4Africa's "Mbokodwe" project that is empowering women in the community to not only uplift themselves but their families as well!

On a very cold winters morning the Food4Africa team happened on a group of desperate but talented South African ladies who personally create exquisite wares. The initial discovery was made in Emondlo, a township just outside Vryheid in Kwazulu Natal, South Africa. These ladies are the inspiration behind MBOKODWE.

MBOKODWE was born amongst heaps of laughter, tears of joy and the promise of a future income.


Zulu word for Stone or Rock. The original Mbo

kodwe stone was used to grind corn and maize. The team decided that this word symbolizes all that they as women stand for - Women with strength, endurance, perseverance, dedication and, most of all, usefulness through all spheres of life.

Each item is “INDIVIDUALLY HANDCRAFTED” with Love, Blood-sweat and tears. Thus uniqueness is guaranteed. No two items will ever be identical; nor can this item be re-created. A similar item can be crafted but the color of the beads and fabric will differ from the original.

You too can support and contribute to this Upliftment project through you purchase of an MBOKODWE Hand Crafted item.

Please click here to check out their products!

These crafts will enha

nce your wellbeing and self-worth as well as help Food4Africa to feed the many families suffering from malnutrition, mainly children. The proceeds from all sales of the crafts will be ploughed back into the Community through Job creation, Food hampers, Uniforms, Training and Education.

I urge you to purchase any of the Exclusive Mbokodwe Hand Crafted items in order to aid Food4Africa in our mission to nourish empower and sustain those that are in need.

My favorites are their handmade holiday and everyday cards that feature beading accents, handmade pap

er, and other adornments such as feathers. They are great as birthday, thank you, and holiday cards! They also offer other items such as jewelry and home decor.

The children of today are the future leaders of our world tomorrow, let's feed them.
