Cake Inspirations is a Pinelands-based cake business that offers its clients a range of cakes and cupcakes for any special occasion in the Cape Town area and surrounds, from small birthday gatherings to children’s birthday cakes to tiered wedding cakes. My themed children’s party cakes often include fairy tale, fantasy and popular cartoon character designs. The wedding cakes I offer can range from a one-tier design to a more elaborate three-tier cake. I offer complementary tastings for wedding cakes for up to two of the flavours as listed below.
The cake flavours I specialize in include classic vanilla, chocolate fudge, dark chocolate with chocolate mousse filling, red velvet, gourmet carrot and decadent espresso with a chocolate sour cream and walnut filling. My cupcake flavours include vanilla, chocolate, gourmet carrot and red velvet with delicious vanilla butter cream and other flavoured butter creams; chocolate and rich caramel. Cupcakes are often a popular choice and can be simply iced or have colourful toppings or accessories such as hearts, stars and flowers. Personalised designs on cupcakes are also an option.
The price of novelty cakes differs according to the type of cake ordered, the size of the cake and type of decoration desired. I will be able to send you a quote once we have discussed these details. I do also have a standard price list for cakes and cupcakes (these are plainly iced without any fancy decoration) and can e-mail you this price list on request.
As the owner of Cake Inspirations, my aim is to provide my customers with a high quality, attention-to-detail product, meeting their exact requirements. I have a passion for baking, decorating and design, as well as providing excellent service. This stems from my years in the hospitality industry, my creative flair and love of delicious sweet things!
The ordering process
For non-wedding events:
Ideally you should contact me to place your order at least two weeks before the event. However, it is often possible that I may be able to accept an order at shorter notice.
I prefer to meet with my wedding clients in order to discuss their ideas. Please contact me in advance to set up an appointment. Appointment hours are on Tuesdays between 17h30 and 19h00. All wedding cake orders must be placed at least three months in advance. Please bring as much information with you as possible, such as your colour scheme, the number of guests and any reference pictures. To confirm your order, you will need to have received a written quote and paid a 50% deposit. The outstanding amount will be settled on collection/delivery.
I do offer a delivery service at an additional charge up to 40km from Pinelands.
