Tea time with chocolate brownies

For Capsicum Culinary Studio alumnus Shannon Moore, food is family and family is food.

Says the 24-year old who hails from Umhlanga Rocks: “I have a very big family and food has always been at the centre of all our gatherings. When the food is being prepared, we are all in the kitchen together helping, and when it’s a bring and share there is always more food than people. From a young age family has always meant food, so I have a great deal of love and appreciation for food and how it can bring people together.”

It’s no surprise then that Moore found her calling in the culinary world and, after a lot of training and experience in the industry, in October 2019 she fully commited all her time and energy to Mad Batter Cakes – a home-based bakery from where she makes a wide range of custom-made products from cakes to cupcakes, cake pops, iced biscuits, brownies, macarons and much more.
