A couple of weeks ago ,I was sitting at my desk minding my own business when my manager asked me, if I would like to cover the launch of a new bakery, I asked her to forward me the mail and when I opened it, I was so glad that I was the one that got asked to cover the amazing media launch of Tessa’s Bakery!
Tessa’s Bakery, found a gap in the market for individually produced, tasteful, personalised cakes and decided to cram the best ingredients into a bowl and creating the most desirable cakes in town and their trendy store in Jasmine Road, Milpark Milnerton is the perfect place to get your lips smacking
Tessa’s Bakery was started in Tessa’s home kitchen in 1992 and their very first store was also established in Montague Gardens that same year.
In the 25 years since then, they’ve gone from supplying coffee shops to launching their very own online store, which supplies customers across the Western Cape with delicious cakes, cupcakes and quiches.
Tessa’s is a family run business and have the most decadent treats to meet the requirements of any taste palate. They started off with just 3 employees and have now reached the 20 mark. The Tessa’s culture is centred around family, creativity and friendship –it’s no wonder there cakes are so amazing, their zest for life and passion for baking shines through in each and every cake and peak(can you tell I love lemon meringue?). They also have some other amazing cakes and savouries available to purchase namely ;chocolate caramel cake, red velvet cake, carrot cake, cheesecake and peppermint crisp tarts. Prepared daily from the finest and freshest ingredients.
One of the main reasons for opening the Jasmine Road store was to help translate their social media presence into a physical store(37K followers on there facebook page)
Tessa’s also have a kids corner, where you kiddies can let their creative juices flow while creating personalised cupcakes or cookies and decorating it to their own personal preference(because we know how picky kiddies can be 😉
For the parents thinking about the sugar rush, fret not. Tessa’s has done the thinking for you as they are based right opposite a wonderful play park so before you head home let them play off that extra energy!
For the parents’, Tessa’s has a wonderful in-house Barista to get you on caffeine buzz to keep up with the kiddo’s. They will start hosting adult baking and decorating lessons from September this year.They also have some amazing party decorations for sale, my favourite was the cake toppers
On our way out each of us got an amazing goody bog filled with treats, of course, my blood stream wouldnt have straight up chrystalised if I had another ounce of sugar so I shared it with my hubby and babies when I got home.
