The colourful Charly’s Bakery, right out of Alice in Wonderland

Coming across Charly’s Bakery just a block from where I live

While walking through Cape Towns District 6 now known as the Fringe I came across some colourful street art but my best find was the beautiful Charlys Bakery. It is like something straight out of Alice in Wonderland.

Not just the outside which has cupcakes and cakes running around but even the inside reminded me of Alice in Wonderland.

They specialise in making designer cakes for all occasions, as well as a range of fun and bright cupcakes, petit fours, cookies and other brightly coloured delicacies. Who can resist a cake that says “eat me” !? Alice couldn’t, and neither could I. They taste as good as they look, no actually they taste even better than what they look like.

Charly’s Bakery is a family run business, started by Charly and Jacqui Biess in 1989.

Over the years the business has grown and their 3 daughters, Alexandra, Daniella and Roch have joined them in creating their crazy, magical, glitter-filled world of Oompa Loompas, Luf Luf and decadently Wicked Chocolate cake.

Their motto is: the world is run on love, laughter and cupcakes!

I am addicted to travelling and have been exploring the world for nearly two decades. Here I share my travel stories and pictures so that you can share in some of the amazing experiences I have along the way. When you travel you experience the culture and get to know the people of a country. Once you step out of your comfortzone you get to know the real country and experience it in a different way than ordinary tourists. My camera usually accompanies me everywhere I go so you can "see" and read about my journeys.
