Lemon Canary Bakery

Whether you have tasted the best in Parisian macaroons, or never set foot from your South African home, Lemon Canary Bakery is sure to be a treat. Situated in the Litchi Orchard Farmers Market on Durban’s North Coast, Kerry Hedges makes a thriving living from creating beautiful, baked goods. Using only the finest ingredients, which are in season, she conjures up the heartfelt feel of days gone by. Her inspiration - her grandmother’s recipes books. 'I believe cooking and baking comes from the heart', says Kerry of her chosen career. The extravagant surroundings decorated with the finest china are shown up by their crumbed counterparts. If you are can't resist cupcakes, be tempted by Lemon Canary’s wide selection of flavours, including spiced pear and almond, as well as decadent dark chocolate and orange. On the menu you can also expect macaroons, marshmallows in any shape or colour, and a wide variety of cakes. Despite this delicious range of flavours, Kerry sees herself as a bespoke creator and her best offerings are served up with certain clients in mind. Treat yourself at Lemon Canary Bakery at The Litchi Orchard Market or contact Kerry on 083-293-2396lemoncanarydesign@gmail.com to order a batch of her best.
