Chef Trevanne Donegal

You may be more familiar with Trevanne Donegal and The Layer Cake, but after returning from further Cuisine and Patisserie training at the well established Le Cordon Bleu in London, she has been building her dream kitchen and has rebranded with the name, Sear 274!

Here is just a touch of what she has been up to since she has been back. Absolutely salivating!

Look out for her and one of my other faves, Christina Simonitsch at Martell & GH Mumm’s booth at the Table Talk Jamaica Observer Food Awards tomorrow night at the Devon House!

Trevanne will have Dark Chocolate Martell Cognac Caramel Truffles 😍

Winners and Highlights from the Sweetart Bake Expo!

The Sweetart Bake Expo held at The Jamaica Pegasus two Sundays ago had patrons in awe at the creativity of Cakes decorated and probably sent everyone’s sweet tooth into overdrive with the samples given.

There were On-stage demos and Presentations on Cake Decorating, as well as classes that were conducted, including one that was by a local instructor.

Sometimes a Cake is decorated well and doesn’t taste as good as it looks, but the proof is in the pudding. Suga was most impressed with the Piña Colada cupcake by Alex’s creations (@alexcreationsja). I tasted the rum first, followed by the coconut flavour,  then was hit with the sweet accentuated by the icing. Fantastic!

Other tasty highlights for Suga:
*Instagram tags in brackets

Cheesecake by Kelsey’s Kreations (@kelseyskreations_ja)

• Bread Pudding by Skimo’s Pastries (@skimos_pastries)

Banana Bread by La Jazz Sweet Tooth (@lajazzp_c)

Carrot Cake by Jhaneal Solomon (@savouritja)

Beer Jelly by Su Yen Green (@bakedbysue)

• Nestle’s offering of mouth-watering Bread pudding and other desserts made by using their products. Not to mention the Nestle Frappélatte that seems to be a hit everywhere it goes. It’s made with coffee and ice cream and is richly flavoured.

I know persons are straying from the traditional Fruit cakes for Weddings, but I only got two to taste that were not up to standard. Perhaps Blissful Bites by Delvena came close. Lemon cakes are now a popular choice for Weddings, but none of them hit the spot.

The presence of well-known Bakers was missed, but there are many on the rise with potential who were present and have been working on their craft for years. The Cake Decorating Competitions displayed high levels of skill and creativity, making things look so real.

Here are most of the Winners!
