Dotty about Dot – a Mr Baker’s Blog exclusive…

When considering larger than life cakes with more than a little bit of character and movement, then one needs look no further than the extraordinary talents of South Africa-based Dorothy Klerck of Eat Cake Party.

At her home, less than an hour outside of Cape Town, the art graduate and long-time lover of design used to fill her time with a handmade card-making business, while helping out husband Tobie in with his agricultural business. It wasn’t until she started making birthday cakes for her own children that Dot discovered she had a bit of a talent for cake artistry.

Now known the world over for for her life-size conservation-inspired animal builds and awe-inspiring, gravity defying sculpted cakes, Dot’s work never fails to amaze and inspire.

She’s one of those artists that I have known from a distance for a while now, but (if I’m honest) have been a bit too starstruck to approach, so when the lovely Gwen of dragéekíss® invited me to join them for Sunday lunch and a wander around Windsor last weekend, I had to say yes. And naturally I took my Dictaphone along so I could help you get to know her a little better too.
