Yehbaby and Food For Mzansi honoured with two international awards.

You don’t need much to get our team excited, but when we received word that our client and media partner Food For Mzansi had been nominated for two African Digital Media Awards, we were overjoyed.

On 11 September during the prestigious Digital Media Africa conference held in Johannesburg, Food For Mzansi was announced as Africa’s Best Digital News Start-up. As well as the runners-up in the Best Social Media Engagement category for work done in partnership with YehBaby Marketing. This recognition of course had us doing a few happy dances around the office.

#ChardonnayDay, Yay!

Paarl Wine Route represents about 30 wineries in the eponymous region of the South African Winelands. Their members include some of the oldest and most innovative wineries and wine brands in the country.

Cousin Phillip’s Birthday Cake Challenge!

IMG_20140903_111929Today is the birthday of Phillip Retief, one of the famous Four Cousins.
Since Four Cousins is one of our favourite clients (and we’ve spent quite a few hours in the test kitchen with eggs, milk and flour testing recipes for the FC brand) this was all the excuse we needed to get creative in the kitchen.
At least one YB’er loves to bake, so we set content coordinator Tamaryne the challenge of coming up with Cousin Phillip’s YehBaby birthday treat using a Four Cousins product.
Some of the previous recipes we developed or tested for the Four Cousins website or Facebook page included some very interesting FC Marula Cream chocolate (that turned into really decadent shots because the chocolate didn’t set!) and a delicious batch of FC Strawberry Cream cupcakes.
