Buttermilk is my new favourite ingredient in a cake! Its perfect if you in mood for something dense, fluffy and not too sweet. And topped with some warm berries gives it a extra bit of tanginess. Baked this one on Sunday for Amanda when she came over for a coffee catch up session. It's from my current favourite food blog Joy the baker. Unfortunately I couldn't use roasted strawberries as they not in season but frozen berries worked just as well!

We recently spent another weekend up the west coast at the beautiful fisherman village ‘Paternoster’. There’s something about this place that puts you instantly in holiday mode, I just love it so much! Here are a few snapshots I took along the way...
|lunch and coffee at a farm stall we stop at every time we head to the west coast|
|Roxy needed a weekend away too|
|Papi and me cleaning up our 'Perlemoen'- a seafood delicacy|
|perfect ending to the day|
Last time was especially fun since we had to photograph one of the better looking players and probably tallest person ive ever had to stand next to doing bicep exercises.. hmm not that bad i guess?:) (I must admit i might have blushed just a little taking his photos heehee) And I’m really happy with the result! One of my favourite parts of the process is editing the photos for the mag and the guys at work have been awesome at teaching me different techniques. Ive been learning so much from this experinace and hope to be made more use of a lil photographer assistant in the future:)

The most interesting experience I’ve ever had on a tuesday night was joining a few other hundred fellow Capetonians on a bike ride through our beautiful town on a full moon! Either hire/borrow/beg or buy your own bike to experience just ONE night on this little adventure! It’s SO worth being caught in the rain, getting to bed far too late, being dead tired at work the next day, and of course lets not forget the very painful bum!
It started off a bit shaky (being on a bike for the first time in years is never a good thing and can cause some near fatal accidents) but as soon as you get the hang of riding a bike again it just puts you in such a happy place! Especially when riding on the Sea point promenade with the west coast on your right and a fresh breeze of ocean in the air. It ended off with a fun ride through Longstreet and the ofcourse a well deserved beer at &Unioun! I recommend anyone who hasn’t done it yet to go on the next ride happening on the 2nd of August! This should defiantly be on the bucket list of things to do in Cape Town.
