March is always a busy birthday month, and lately I feel as though I am either busy planning or baking a celebration cake (or both!). My most recent creation was a Peppa Pig cake which I made for my daughter’s 3rd birthday, and as I am not a professional cake decorator I was just relieved that she and her friends could correctly identify the fondant character on top .


Today’s post celebrates another birthday – last week Cupcakes and Couscous turned 2! It has been another fun year, and I am incredibly grateful for the support of my readers and the new opportunities that have come my way. Here’s to another great year!



I posted a recipe for a double chocolate meringue in 2013. This is the same recipe which I have tweaked and improved, and I thought it would be a fitting cake to make to celebrate another year in the blogging world. Moist chocolate cake topped with cinnamon meringue – yes please! Thanks for reading and enjoy. x

About The Author

In a nutshell, I'm a foodie, Mom, home-maker and blogger - and I'm passionate about good food! My love for all things culinary began in childhood as I grew up with two grandmothers and a Mom who made just about everything from scratch. After school I went on to study Food & Nutrition and opened my own small business producing handmade food products for an upmarket food store in Cape Town. Five years later I decided to sell the business to pursue my other passion - travel! After spending nearly four years abroad I returned to Cape Town and took up a position as a Product Developer, which I did until I had my daughter two years later. I look forward to sharing my favourite recipes and other foodie ramblings with the Spice 4 Life community!
