New to the Valley

This is my first post after moving to Grabouw and I am very excited to start Mon Ami Cakes!
Mon Ami_v3 narrowA bit about me…
My name is Nakita and after spending my early years in South Africa my family immigrated to England, this is where I did most of my schooling and ‘grew up’. I therefore have an English influence and this does reflect in my traditional English bakes, rustic & vintage style and love of Afternoon Teas!!
I am now settled in Grabouw with my Afrikaans partner (don’t ask us how that happened either), our little boy (15 months) and woof!
I thought it about time I started baking again so welcome to Mon Ami Cakes!

I had a baking and gifts business in the Eastern Cape and very much enjoyed being a part of my clients’ special days, namely wedding, birthdays, christenings, bridal and baby showers etc. I LOVE contributing a small part and seeing the smile (or message) from the recipient! This is what keeps me doing what I love.
What do I do…
Cakes, cupcakes, mini cakes, scones, afternoon teas…… etc etc.
I do love the rustic, vintage style that has become so popular amongst brides and events and I do enjoy creating the buttercream style cakes that match, however due to demand I have done my fair share of fondant cakes so do cater to what you have in mind.
I ask that we meet, look at a few ideas together – you bring a few images, discuss flavours, designs and come up with a bespoke wedding (or occasion) cake for you! Don’t try to copy another cake, have a UNIQUE one created just for you!

I have also decided to do another element I love – Afternoon Tea Parties.
original_CO184_vintage_afternoon_teaAfter seeing the huge success and joy these parties are bringing around the UK I decided that Cape Town ladies need this in their lives too – and in their own homes or a venue close by, not always a fancy hotel!
So, you provide the date and the occasion and I will provide the Afternoon Tea! I supply the sandwiches/ savoury tarts, scones, cakes and other mini delights as well as the tea cups, saucers, cake plates (mostly vintage English) to provide you with the perfect Afternoon tea.
Ideal for Bridal Showers – planned or surprise, even better – baby showers, birthdays – young and old – even christenings or funerals.
Everyone loves an occasion and cake so plan your party today!

Special offer….
All cake or Afternoon Tea Party bookings made in October will get a fabulous 15% discount! Email me & let’s get planning!

There is a bit more about me… I am super excited about working with various wedding suppliers in the Valley and hope our paths will cross soon 🙂

Yours in cake,
Nakita x
