Theme: Simply Beautiful

After completing a part-time pastry course in 2015, owner and creative director, Nikki Albertyn's graphic design skills and love for all things visual melted into one with the art of baking. LionHeart, an online-based patisserie studio, came into being in 2016 as a weekly Instagram post of what she was up to in the kitchen slowly turned into cake orders. They are now a team of 6 beautifully diverse women pooling their strengths to make Cape Town a sweeter place with their crafted cake designs and treats from their studio in Salt River. Beyond being able to taste and see their creations they aim to inspire like-minded pastry chefs and aspiring bakers across the globe through their online school, growing a community through knowledge sharing. They're in the game of cake but first and foremost they're here to add a little (or a big) touch of happiness to your day!

100 Beautiful Things is presented by the V&A Waterfront in celebration of South Africa’s creativity, compassion, ingenuity and resilience. Every week we will be showcasing five amazingly beautiful creative things that make us proud. It is curated in partnership with Platform Creative.
