Cake Canteen’s cake residency featuring Café Chiffon and Mondvol


CAKE CANTEEN, powered by The Velvet Cake Co., will have its inaugural cake residency pop-up series at its Bellville branch on April 26 and 27. As part of this exciting weekend, Cake Canteen will be showcasing the delectable creations of Café Chiffon and Mondvol, inviting cake enthusiasts to indulge in a delightful blend of flavours and creativity.

Cake Canteen embodies the spirit of collaboration over competition. Co-founder Jandri van Zyl’s (above) vision is to provide a platform for fellow bakers to showcase and sell their goods, fostering a supportive community within the culinary industry. In an era where many cake companies operate primarily online, Cake Canteen offers a unique opportunity for artisans like The Velvet Cake Co., Sweet LionHeart, and Mondvol to connect with customers in a tangible, face-to-face setting.

The cake residency will feature the culinary prowess of MasterChef runner-up Andriette De la Harpe from Mondvol, and Christine Hu from Café Chiffon. Guests are invited to savour an array of delectable treats while engaging with these talented women who have made significant contributions to the culinary landscape.

“We are thrilled to host our first cake residency event at Cake Canteen,” says Van Zyl. “This initiative not only celebrates the artistry and craftsmanship of local bakers but also provides our customers with an unforgettable experience.”

Find Cake Canteen in Hertex, Bellville, and visit on Friday from 8am to 5pm and Saturday 9am to 2pm for the pop-up.

The Cake Canteen is the brainchild of cake masterminds Jandri van Zyl, founding owner of The Velvet Cake Co., who has created a beautiful spaces within Hertex stores (first High Street in the northern suburbs and now Gardens in the City Bowl) that deliver beautiful and incredibly delicious cake offerings as well as the perfectly roasted and blended coffee by Rocco & Riley.
