Butterflies and All Things Sweet
Butterflies and All Things Sweet’ is not a cookbook but a visual feast. It explores the ingredients, ideas and inspiration behind the unique cakes that encapsulate Bonnae Gokson’s vision and energy, with a nod to the butterfly that’s synonymous with her brand. Her cosmopolitan life and passion for food, culture, fashion and arts fuels her creativity.
Every cake is a celebration of life’s ephemeral sweetness and this book indulges in the beauty of them all. From backstage couture to a children’s party, we created an armchair journey through Bonnae’s influences and occasions with images we sourced globally and shot with our teams in Sydney and in Hong Kong. ‘Butterflies and All Things Sweet’ was launched in New York by RalphLauren at his 888 Madison store. It went on to win awards internationally.
