Keri, owner of Whipped Sugar is a self-taught, quality-obsessed baker who took her passion full-time in 2020. Keri makes beautifully decorated cookies, elegant celebration and wedding cakes, cupcakes, and her favourite pastry of all, tarts!
Having loved baking and experimenting throughout her life, Keri found herself at a birthday party, desperately waiting for the beautiful cake to be served, but found herself disappointed that the inside did not match the exquisite outside. A year later, it was serendipity that saw the end of her marketing business during a very tough year around the world, but the beginning of Whipped Sugar, while she was perfecting her recipes during lockdown. After posting her creations online, the orders trickled and suddenly she was creating treats for special occasions all around Bloubergstrand.
Keri and her family then spent a year in Portugal, where she continued to improve on her recipes and designs and bake for special occasions all around Lisbon. In 2022, Keri and her family returned to their beloved Cape Town where she has continued to build a thriving business focusing on elegant designs and decadent flavours.
Keri is extremely passionate about not taking shortcuts in her baking, using the best quality ingredients, and ensuring that everything from the communication to the packaging feels special.
A self-confessed sweet tooth that would never walk past a dessert table without a treat in hand, Keri creates only what she would be happy to receive and eat herself, and believes that every special occasion deserves to be celebrated with a treat that is memorable and most of all, delicious! It is a treat, after all, it’s got to be worth it!
