Clearly we do not spend enough time in Cape Town as a foreigner we bumped into in France introduced us to Charlys Bakery – I blame it on the Swiss bubble we live in. They had seen the reality TV show that the bakers stars in – Charly’s Angels. If you haven’t heard of the bakery and are in or travelling to Cape Town you are going to want to make a point of visiting. It is bright, colourful and makes the most amazing cakes and confectionery creations ever (or I should use their tag line? “mucking afazing”). It was busy when we went and we had to queue so maybe try and get their early on a Saturday. But the wait was worth it was we served by Jacqui herself, and they were more than happy to personalise Bebe’s birthday cake for her on the spot (but you can preorder if you like and they do incredible custom cakes and personalised cookies). And yes, the Chocolate Truffle Cake is as good as all the hype!
