Birdcage - Welcome To Our Online Cake Shop & Kitchen

New year, new journey.

For over a decade we’ve poured our hearts and energy into the beauty that is the Birdcage – the treats, the eats and our cosy Stellenbosch café.

We’ve discovered the best people and the most delicious ingredients, and we’ve savoured every encounter. And in all of this, we discovered a taste for adventure. So when a new opportunity popped up, we were thrilled to take it – even though it means saying goodbye to our beloved Birdcage.

We’ll be wrapping things up during the next few months up until the end of May, so get in your last mouthfuls of goodness while you still can! (We won’t be taking any wedding cake orders or caterings for events after May.)

Thank you so much to all our supporters and cheerleaders – we hope to see you on the next adventure.

With full hearts, empty plates and dollops of gratitude,

  • As all of you know we announced in January that Birdcage will be closing at the end of May this year

We had such big plans for May, our last month at Birdcage

We are talking specials, lots of coffees, giveaways, LOTS of cake and cupcakes and one massive farewell bash with industry friends, family and our team

It is with great sadness that we are sharing with you today that we have had to make a very difficult decision of not opening Birdcage before the end of May again

We will be packing up and clearing out over the next few weeks so keep your eye on our Instagram as we will be selling a lot of gifts, furniture etc at special prices

Our prayers are with all of you during this challenging and very uncertain time

Lots of love,
Beate, Snoes & The Birdcage Team

  • We must say it is a lot of fun testing out recipes that we normally don’t get time for
Not sure if it’s the actual baking or all the comfort eating that makes it so much fun, but there are worse things to worry about at the moment- do you agree?
.
.
Have a lovely Wednesday everyone, be kind to yourself ✨

  • Is there even such a thing as too much chocolate?
