Since blossoming onto the South African market over 20 years ago Helen’s Cakes based in Craighall Park has grown to be one of the largest bakers of cakes in South Africa and become an institution for those who have experienced its tastes.
Today it comprises of three separate bakeries: the first for up-market cakes for clients such as The Patisserie and Tashas; the second specialises in wedding cakes, birthday cakes and various other stunning novelty cakes; and the third bakery, the one that sets it apart from competitors, bakes speciality breads and cakes specifically for restaurants and corporate clients.
Our bakery runs an efficient fleet of delivery vehicles which safely transport our products to the customers. We take pride in being able to handle large orders in an organized and professional manner and are always ready for a challenge. To put this into perspective, we managed an urgent order of 5 000 cupcakes which we received the night before. How did we manage this? Persistence and heart are key.
These extraordinary endings would not be possible without the craftsmen behind the scene. Helen has a very high regard for her staff, nearly all of whom started off as dishwashers and ended up working side by side with Helen as they patiently learnt how to perfect the best of the ingredients. It is a great pleasure to see her team at work. Helen prides herself on the professionalism of her staff and the cleanliness of her bakery. Helen’s motto is based on three key words:
* Quality: only the freshest quality ingredients are used; no pre-mixes are entertained. There are no artificial substitutes used for fresh cream, fresh milk, imported butter, or any other ingredients;
* Cleanliness: the highest levels of hygiene and cleanliness are constantly maintained;
* Attention to detail: exacting standards with no compromise on detail and quality. It is important to Helen that her products are perfect in every way.
