#SundayStills – Happy place

My happy place is my kitchen where I spend pleasant hours creating fondant artworks and cakes.

I am not going to share pictures of my kitchen as that would be uninspiring. I am sharing some pictures of my favourite cakes.

Apples in a basket cupcakes
Train station cake
Fruit pies cupcakes and marzipan chips

Where is your happy place?

  1. You are a fabulous Baker. I understand why your kitchen is your favorite place.
    My favorite places are my office in my basement and my patio. I write in both of them but I write most in my office because it’s like entering another world.

  2. I’m not surprised your happy place is your kitchen. Mine is my terrace in the sun overlooking the lemon grove. I love to write and read there. I also chat with my family there sometimes on my tablet or laptop. We eat all our meals there unless it’s raining.

    1. Hi Darlene, your happy places sounds very pretty and special. I play musical chairs when it comes to working and writing space at home. I often write in my kitchen and I blog there too. There is nowhere peaceful or solitary in this house.

  3. I like your large creations, like Chocolateville, but I also appreciate the intricacy and details that go into your smaller pieces. One thing I’ve always wanted to ask you, Are these strictly for show, or do these masterpieces all get eaten?

    1. Hi Pete, I have finished writing about Sir Chocolate now so there won’t be any more artworks about Chocolate Land. I am focusing now on flowers and artworks with messages about global warming and that sort of thing. Everything gets eaten. Well, not the fondant figurines, but the cakes get eaten.

      1. Hi Meeks, this is the only time I’ve used marzipan. It is not as malleable as fondant and tends to crumble. I make hair by pushing fondant through a sieve. It creates fine strands.


      1. Welcome Robbie but after my grandson was born I thought of writing a story on Train of Joy. It is in one of my short stories. Actually I have a train station just opposite my house and as he was growing I would pick him up and take him near the window to make him listen to the noise of the train and the whistle and I too would imitate the train and he would get so excited so one day the story just formed and then made my daughter too read.

  4. your gastronomic creations are true works of art Robbie!

    On another note I watched a science program about Cape Towns water shortage of 2018. It appears most of the cities water comes from fog. There is also a movement to cut down all Pine trees as they suck up too much water and are not even natural to the country!

  5. BTW, I’ve missed so many of your posts. Somehow, my WordPress won’t deliver blog posts to my email anymore. I spent about a week trying to figure out if I unsubscribed or they went to spam and now solved it by reading blogs through the reader. Not my preferred way, but oh well!

  6. Wow.. what a lot of work went into that Train Station… I spent and hour in the kitchen this morning baking Apple and Blackberry pie… Again.. We enjoyed so much the one we made on Monday with my granddaughter Hubby wanted another one for the weekend.. 🙂
    My happiest place has to be in the garden or allotment plot… Time for me there just vanishes, as I become one with what I am doing..
    Loved your creations Robbie, and so are your family to enjoy all your baking 🙂 ❤
    Have a super weekend Robbie.. ❤

      1. Yes, I am watching your news. We’ve been in lock down for months but they have eased the restrictions. Half our restaurants and other small businesses are gone and the government aid has run out.


  7. Love those apple cakes, Robbie. Are they apple flavored? I’d say my happy place is in my kitchen when everyone is around. I also like being there on my own in the mornings, though. That’s where I do a lot of my reading.
