My inspiration for starting Cakes By Clair began after the birth of my first born, Emily. I worked as a Beauty Therapist in the Hospitality industry for a number of years but came home day after day hating my job.

In 2015, my husband and I were expecting our first born, it was really at this moment that I had decided to pack my bags and move on from Beauty Therapy, I quit my job straight after the birth of my daughter and went about re discovering who I was as a person and what really made me happy.

I have always been passionate about baking but it wasn’t until I made a birthday cake for my sister when my family said, you have a real skill and should consider doing this for a living. Well of course the bug had bitten…

Not wanting to accept anything less than spectacular I decided to hone my skills and I attend a number of courses with La Petite Patisserie in Cape Town. I was instantly hooked and re assured to have met so many ladies in my position who had also decided to kick the can with their jobs and take up baking for a living. It was during this time that I fell in LOVE and the orders started flowing.

My strength lies in my creativity and keen eye for attention to detail, everything I make is done from scratch and filled with tons of love and flavor. At Cakes By Clair, all the orders are made fresh and personally delivered by Clair. I will do whatever I can to meet your expectations so please take a tour of my site and pop me a message if you have any questions or just wish to get a quote.
