2. Oh My Cake – Johannesburg
This Johannesburg bakery specialises in creating wow-factor cakes that are definitely worthy of Instagram. Walk in and buy a unicorn cake ready-made (if there are any left) or customise your own work of art with as many embellishments as your heart desires. If it’s possible, these beauties taste even better than they look.
3. Sugarlicious – Durban
What is better than a freshly-baked macaron? A gourmet macaron ice cream sandwich, of course! These pastel-coloured artworks are brought to you (straight from Heaven) by Sugarlicious, a bakery chain in Durban. Choose from a wide range of ice creams wrapped in delicate French macaron shells, dipped in premium chocolate, and then carefully packaged in tissue paper for your personal enjoyment. Filters are unnecessary when your food looks this good…
