Today has been a day of celebration; the culmination of an intense, but thoroughly rewarding year of study as I attended my graduation in the company of my family and was formally awarded my Master of Arts degree. I enjoyed my MA; so involved was I in the areas I was exploring that I wasn’t ready to let go when it ended and this was one of the reasons I started African Daydreams; I’m still learning! For me a celebration is incomplete without some form of delicious goodies from CocktailCouture, a London based events company that recently launched cctreats; a delectable range of freshly home-baked sweet treats using the finest ingredients available. Domestic goddess and event planner Rufaro – or Faro as she is known to her friends and family – founded CocktailCouture with the aim of designing stylish weddings and other meaningful events that blend elegance and sophistication with the specific cultural touches required by a demanding but time-poor clientele.

In Faro’s own words ‘tasty little luxuries’ are exactly what cctreats create; I would add irresistible because you can’t resist no matter how much you try; and having sampled a fair few I know what I’m talking about. Moist and indulgent, the baked treats include cakes, cookies, brownies, cake pops and off course cupcakes. All treats are baked by Faro to order via the cctreats website, using a build your cake/treat format where indicated. Choices include; a tempting selection of sponges from Madagascan Vanilla Bean, Divine Chocolate made using Divine Chocolate’s fair-trade Cocoa to the melt in your mouth Lemon Touch with a touch of fresh lemon zest. Delicious fillings range from Amarula Cream, Dark Chocolate Ganache to the fun and unexpected Marshmallow Fluff. Top it all off with mouth-watering frostings from the tropical flavours of Coconut and Lime to classic Strawberry Meringue. I’m hard-pressed to choose a favourite but will give a special mention to fresh out the oven brownies… heavenly bliss with a drizzle of fresh cream.
