About Cakes by Karen 

My name is Karen, I am the owner of Cakes by Karen.


After finishing my chef diploma at ICA in Stellenbosch Cape Town, I worked as a pastry chef at Hartford house in the Natal midlands for a year and then in the Scottish Highlands before returning to South Africa to start my own home based cake business.


Cakes by Karen began in Centurion in 2008.


I started off by baking for 2 home industries for a year before venturing off to help clients directly. I was fortunately enough to have the assistance of my mom, Marlise, to build up the business and be a small part of a variety of weddings, christenings, birthday parties etc.


Our clients had become like family over the 11 years in the industry. 


We relocated to Cape Town in 2018 to start a new adventure and hope to be a part of your future celebrations!
