Velvet Cake Co

Eight years after Cape Town’s first Velvet Cake Co. debuted in the Northern Suburbs, the quirky cakery is opening not one, but two new stores allowing more cake lovers across the Western Cape to enjoy their fix of the freshest and finest ingredients. The cake company will be opening its doors in Canal Walk Shopping Centre on 01 August and Tyger Valley Centre on 01 September 2018 as the “ultimate cake-on-the-go” experience as owner Jandri van Zyl describes it, catering to the busy mall environment where customers can pop in, grab treats, and indulge while they shop.

Velvet Cake Co

The Velvet Cake Co., which features Insta-favourites such as the Naked Rainbow Cake and Red Velvet Cupcakes, promises to maintain its homey touch to consistently serve the best cakes in town. Guests can expect to choose from all the classics and more from chocolate, sweetie pie, carrot, and of course, red velvet cupcakes, to rainbow and lemon meringue cake cups, their fab new Slices in a variety of flavours, and fresh cakes for last minute parties. The best part? A new velvety treat will be launched exclusive to the Canal Walk and Tyger Valley locations, but what it is exactly, is for foodies to find out on opening day. Hint: a grab-and-go dose of baked goodness.

Velvet Cake CoThe stores layout and design will stay true to the happy vibe the Velvet customer loves – soft modern colours, exciting prints, chic fridges filled with those delicious treats, and an eye-catching wall proudly showing off their famous Rainbow Cake everyone adores – perfect for cake-selfies, of course.

Shoppers will be able to satisfy their cake cravings at the new stores seven days a week, from nine in the morning to nine at night.

Find the new The Velvet Cake Co. store at Canal Walk on the lower level, shop number 145, and in Tyger Valley, through Entrance 10, shop UL510a.
