• Who doesn’t love cake? We sure do and so do Cake Canteen’s customers!

    Cake Canteen, powered by The Velvet Cake Co., is thrilled to announce its inaugural Cake Residency Pop-Up Series, taking place at their Bellville Branch on April 26th and 27th.

    As part of this exciting weekend, Cake Canteen will be showcasing the delectable creations of Café Chiffon and Mondvol, inviting cake enthusiasts to indulge in a delightful blend of flavours and creativity.

    The brainchild of Jandri van Zyl, founder of The Velvet Cake Co., Cake Canteen embodies the spirit of collaboration over competition. Van Zyl’s vision is to provide a platform for fellow bakers to showcase and sell their goods, fostering a supportive community within the culinary industry.

    In an era where many cake companies primarily operate online, Cake Canteen offers a unique opportunity for artisans like The Velvet Cake Co., Sweet LionHeart, and Mondvol to connect with customers in a tangible, face-to-face setting.

    The Cake Residency will feature the culinary prowess of Andriette from Mondvol, renowned Masterchef winner, and Christine from Cafe Chiffon. Guests are invited to savour an array of delectable treats while engaging with these talented women who have made significant contributions to the culinary landscape.
