I've had a massive cake craving as of late and recently came across the The Velvet Cake Co when a colleague was looking to order birthday cake. The beautiful and bright website sucked me in immediately and I had to put a visit to The Velvet Cake Co on my weekend list.
A good slice of cake can be hard to find. Often I'm enticed with the most beautifully decorated cakes only to be left sorely disappointed with either a mouthful of dry sponge or reaching for water after every mouthful because it is just too rich.
This was not my experience at The Velvet Cake Co. Dean and I popped in there for some coffee and cake on a Saturday morning. The cafe is at the bottom of Loop Street in Cape Town and they also have a branch in Bellville.
Dean is not a cake fan but even these cakes had him ordering a big slice of chocolate cake while I chose the rainbow one with cream cheese icing. Both our slices were just delicious. Really. Yum. We even left with takeaways.
The little cafe sells cupcakes, cake slices and cups of cheese cakes as well as coffees. You can order whole cakes and they are really affordable. I have my eye on my next birthday cake.
So if you're a cake fan, definitely pop into The Velvet Cake Co, I promise you won't be disappointed.
