Wrapping up my unintentional food/drink-themed week of blog posts is this little feature on Ma Mere Confections – a Cape Town based confectionery company, lovingly run by Lexi Bird and her awesome team!
In their own words…I’ve been following the lovely Lexi and the rise of Ma Mere for a few years now, and had the privilege of sampling some of her wares on a trip to CT in 2014 (sheesh, where does time go?!) Not only are Ma Mere sweet treats delicious, they are packaged beautifully too and I have a severe #BrandCrush on their traditional packaging and design! I mean, just look at this, who wouldn’t want some of that goodness in their Christmas stocking this year?
Apart from traditional sweets like Nougat, Peanut Brittle, Turkish Delight, Fudge, Salted Caramel Popcorn etc – Ma Mere are probably most well known for their incredible Macaroons which come in a crazy variety of flavours and colours – really a feast for the eyes as well as the stomach…
As we all know, I love to support local creatives and the thing that strikes me most about entrepreneurs, makers and creatives in SA, is the enthusiasm and dedication they have for their craft – Lexi is no exception. Obviously I don’t know her personally but I can see from Instagram particularly, how passionate and invested she is in her business, despite being a busy mum to her adorable baby daughter Lily and an avid sportswoman (throw in a little tapestry’ing too!) Truly inspiring ♥
