sweet things

Sweet Things - Cupcakes & Cookies is a bakery business run by my aunty h in cape town, south africa. take a look at her website: http://www.sweetthings.co.za/index.php
all i have to say is that her baked goods (and food too!) are to die for. my family's favourite are the millionaire shortbreads, but i'll eat everything else she offers too.
she made my wedding favours for me also - they were butter biscuits ("cookies") of 3 different sizes, arranged to look like a tiered wedding cake. the biscuit tops were iced with royal icing and we added a hershey hug as the "cake topper". they were a hit! the little ones couldn't wait to get their little "cake".
once I get my professional wedding photo negatives, i'll add the photo we have of our sweetheart table that includes this cookie favour as well as the CD favours we handed out.
but back to the sweet things website... aunty H has also included a few select recipes on the left hand side margin. take a look and try them out!
