Velvet Orange, Purple and Green Cakes
As much fun as the festive season is, it can be a lot of work for those who have to take all the baking, cooking and planning upon themselves. With this in mind, The Velvet Cake Co. is putting all the effort in for us and producing special holiday-themed bakes that are ideal for anything from a family Christmas celebration to a year-end function.
Envision options like red velvet Christmas cake covered in Swiss white meringue or a Reindeer Piñata cake smothered in chocolate frosting and filled with a centre of sparkly sweets and treats. There’s also the company’s popular hummingbird cake and the blue, green, orange, pink, purple and yellow velvet sponges, all of which can be finished with festive decorations and toppers that read ‘Merry Christmas’, ‘Happy Holidays’ and ‘Ho Ho Ho’ (these can be chosen in-store on collection).
The Velvet Cake Co. first opened its doors in Cape Town in January 2012, and has since re-imagined the cake scene here. Their rich sponges are distinctively topped with charming decorations and a decadent cream cheese icing that the company has become renowned for. The novel alternatives cater to all tastes, and the business’s adventurous approach to baking puts their creations a step ahead of the rest.
Aside from cakes, the company also does cupcakes and newly launched cups (clear cups filled with layers of crumbled cake, frosting, meringue and more). They famously cater for various occasions, like festive season celebrations in this case.
Christmas cakes start at R305, and most are available until 24 December 2016. For more information on The Velvet Cake Co. visit thevelvetcakeco.com
