I enrolled at the Cape Town International Hotel School in 2004 where I trained for three years as an in-service trainee and graduated with a Diploma in Professional Cookery. I continued my journey in the hospitality industry gaining experience in the heart of some of Cape Town’s busiest hotel kitchens. My passion for cooking turned to baking and my dream of creating sweet goods at home became a reality in December 2012.
The need for perfection and attention to detail is a great motivation for me and I have always believed that a cake should look amazing and taste even better. I have since developed my own style, specializing in dense and decadent creations with a rustic touch, known as ‘Lexi’s Crumbs’.
Here’s an interview I did with iafrica.com: Icing the cake with the queen of tarts.
