About us

Charlene van Blerk, chief designer and owner of Cakes4Kids and Cakes4Brides is much more than a mere baker.

She is a cake designer with a wonderful imagination; she has vision and the practical skills to transform an idea into a confection that is as good to look at as it is to eat. She is supported by a team of bakers and icing specialists, every member of whom prides herself on creativity, consistency and dedication to detail.

Storage of products

Every cake or other sweet treat is a work of art, and requires careful handling to ensure it tastes as good as it looks.

  • Cakes stay fresh for up to a week, but are best within three days of baking
  • Store cakes, whether decorated in soft or hard icing, in a cool place, but not in the refrigerator (unless specified otherwise)

Ordering a cake

  • Flavours of cake available include: Vanilla, Chocolate, Lemon, Strawberry, Banana or Red Velvet.  Additional fillings available include caramel; chocolate mousse; chocolate ganache; chocolate fudge and strawberry cream. Please enquire if you need more information.

  • Deposits for other cakes: A non-refundable deposit of 25% is payable upon confirmation of booking, the balance upon collection.

Delivery and transport

  • If a cake must be delivered, Cakes4kids will take all necessary precautions to prevent damage during transit. However Cakes4kids staff will not be held responsible should a cake incur damage because of poor road conditions (potholes, gravel roads etc.) that they were not informed of. Once the cake has been received by the client, it ceases to be the responsibility of Cakes4kids.
  • If the client collects the cake from the Cakes4kids studio it ceases to be the responsibility of Cakes4kids when it leaves the premises.
