OUR STORY

Ever since I can remember, I have always loved designing, decorating and finding creative and fresh ways to express peoples desires for their special occasions through cakes and floral arrangements. 

 

I have worked hard for many years in commercial bakeries to make ends meet while attending training on floral arrangements. The design inspiration and affirmation of my creativity came from Mrs. Lillian Jones from the UK, who was a brilliant cake decorator and teacher. After completing my training and apprenticeship with Lillian, together we baked and decorated many cakes for special celebrations. My passion for designing cakes and word of mouth helped me to focus on baking cakes from home and in 2010 I started supplying confectioneries with special event cakes. 

 

My dream of opening up a specialty cake and confectionery store in downtown Pretoria materialized during 2015, when with the help of my partner, Andreas Angelides, we opened the doors of Cake Zone on the 1st of September. In December 2017 we established a branch in Jubilee Mall in Hammanskraal and in November 2018 we opened up two more branches at Mams Mall in Mamelodi and at Nkomo Village Mall in Atteridgeville. Our first step in Johannesburg started with the opening of our Soweto branch in July 2019 at Maponya Mall and we now have two more branches at Sam Ntuli Mall in Katlehong and at Tsakane mall in Tsakane. We try to locate ourselves close to all our customers in order to better serve our customer communities. In addition to celebration cakes we also treat everyone with a large variety of tasty confectionery cakes and treats that come in a large variety of flavors and sizes. 

We strive to design beautiful and creative cakes to match your dreams for your special celebration. We use the highest quality ingredients, original recipes and we are passionate about freshness. We want to make your celebrations extraordinary and memorable.
