Christa Schonitz, a Silwood trained Pastry chef, specialises in custom made wedding and celebration cakes. After leaving the hotel kitchens she started Florentines Coffee shop and in 2007 made her first wedding cake for her sister. The love of wedding cakes grew and in 2013 ventured out on her own as Florentines Cakes.
Baking has always been her passion and believes in using quality ingredients and attention to detail to create beautiful and delicious cakes.
Christa works on her own, so everything is done from start to finish as well as setting up at the venue.
Cake styles range from simple to elaborate decor. Tiered cakes, cupcake towers and individually made miniature cakes which are perfect for guests to take home. Wedding favours and smaller treats for dessert.
Adding a little personal and sometimes comical touch to the cake, Christa makes edible cake toppers to replicate the couples and furry family members who can’t always attend the celebrations.
Contact Christa to arrange a tasting and consultation to create your own special wedding cake. Special dietary requirements are also catered for.
Deliveries are done to all the favourite wedding destinations, Cape Winelands and surrounding areas.
