Mad Hatter Cake Collection

“A dream is not reality, but who's to say which is which?” 
Alice Through the Looking Glass

Wisteria, dripping in fat purple flowers, the buzz of bees unhurriedly going about their business and the smell of freshly baked cakes wafting on a gentle breeze, mingled on a perfect Highveld day as the Café Hemingway’s team set up to take pictures of some delectable cakes, lovingly made by our Chef's.

Mini cakes are one of our favourite things, because you don’t need a special occasion or a party to have one, all you need is a desire for something beautiful and truly delicious! These cakes are made as naked cakes (with no icing coating the sides), or as fully iced cakes, and are available in the restaurant on an ongoing basis. But be warned! They are delectable so are sold out rather quickly, it’s always better to order and then you can choose exactly what you want! 

For something a little more glamorous why not try our croque-en-bouche for a little extra Parisian flair, with all the right colours for your décor or party theme! 

All our cakes are made individually and with only the best ingredients. Decorations are often in the form of fresh fruit and flowers, but should you have a specific theme in mind, we would be delighted to make your cake accordingly.  

All Café Hemingways delicate treats are handmade using only the best artisal ingredients!


Chocolate, Blue Velvet, Red Velvet, French Vanilla, Carrot, Lemon, Beetroot & Apple, Chocolate & caramel.
