Cape-Grace Cake

While many in-house guests and local residents of Cape Town are regularly tempted by the Afternoon Tea menu served daily in the Library, not many people know that the hotel also offers an irresistible menu of Special Occasion Cakes – each one made to order.

Better still, this special offering is not only for in-house guests but provides a fuss-free, professional service for anyone wanting to order something special to wow friends, family or colleagues. Guests often order a cake to add a special touch to Afternoon Tea in the hotel, especially for birthday parties and baby showers.

A beautiful cake makes a decadent hostess gift and is also ideal for treating office colleagues. There are six cakes from which to choose. All-time favourites include a classic moist, nutty Carrot Cake with a cream cheese frosting; the signature Cape Grace Cake, a dense, rich, flourless chocolate cake suitable for the gluten intolerant; and Berrylicious, a frothy confection of vanilla-lemon sponge, lady fingers, white chocolate mousse, fresh berries and other fruits.

Each speciality cake is made from ingredients of superior provenance (think free-range eggs, Valrhona chocolate, roasted nuts, and fresh cream) and requires time and expertise to produce.

Placing an order, preferably 24 hours in advance, is therefore essential. Prices range from R200 for a cake serving eight to R485 for a 12-slice Passion Hazelnut gateau. Macaroons in gorgeous colours and flavours are also available at R8 each.
