I love cake. As a little girl I used to make a big mess in our kitchen in the Name of Baking. Sometimes I would make a batch of vanilla batter, just to taste the tingling of the baking powder on my tongue. My favourite recipe was syrup cakes -beyond sweet- but the taste of warm vanilla butter cake, drenched in syrup will always stay with me. My trip overseas after varsity lies full of taste and smell memories, from the cinnamon buns on Naxos Island to the ripe fig tree of the backpackers in Orange, a small village in France, where I had the most beautiful spinach and feta tart. But back to cake. Back in Cape Town I did a 3 year Gordon Bleus diploma at Silwood Kitchen and started working at Old Mutual Executive Kitchen doing wedding cakes in my free time. I left Old Mutual to do cakes full time and opened High Tea Cake Shop with my husband in 2004, on the border of Constantia and Wynberg. My team and I have been supplying and baking for High Tea for 13 years, dedicated to bring you the best cakes we can possibly do and continually striving to improve our products.
There must be more to life than to be consumed with cake making you might think, but here at High Tea Cakes, we eat, drink and sleep cake, to bring you tasty and tasteful ways to celebrate life! Thank you to all our loyal customers and hope you will continue to support us on our cake journey.
