When my daughter moved overseas and she had her first birthday away from us we needed a way to send her a birthday card. With our postal service being the way it is the task was near impossible.
We also wanted to send her cake because she has always had a birthday cake. She was so excited when she received her cake and card and we celebrated her birthday with a video call. She even got to blow out her candles and we all sang happy birthday. It helped us feel closer to her and she felt special and less homesick because of it.
This sparked the idea of combining the two and offering a service of cake in a card. You choose a card design, personalise a message, select cake and have it couriered to your family and friends.
There was another motivating factor. My son, who is a qualified chef, lost his job during lockdown and was looking at opening his own business. Bonus is he has food safety training.
This is how Celebrate with Cake was born. We are starting small and offering a personalised service with great quality cake but more than that we are giving people who are far away a way to celebrate special occasions with family and friends that live in Johannesburg.
