A Cake Story…
End of an era…
End of an era…
My name is Gaynor, cake artist and baker. A Cake Story has now closed her doors and will no longer be taking any new commissions.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my baking adventures since opening A Cake Story in 2015.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all my wonderful couples who trusted me to make their wedding cake – it has been an absolute honour and a privilege to be of service to you.
In the same vein, I would like to thank the following wedding venues who have supported me during my baking adventures – it has been a wonderful experience working with you.
Karin & Roy
“Dearest Gay. I am so sorry that it has taken me so long to write and thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your fabulous wedding cake and sublime macarons. I cannot tell you how complimentary our guests were about both the cake and the macarons which were such a hit – you could have sold dozens of them there and then! Your spicy filling is so unique and delicious. We had to hide them away for a secret finishing session with my sister and brother in law on the day after the wedding!!!!! Sending much love and thanks again from the both of us”
March 2022 My Final Wedding

“Gaynor, we are absolutely speechless. Our cake was absolutely perfect and oh so delicious. The guests were left going back countless times and couldn’t stop talking about how yummy everything was. Thank you so much again for making our dream cake. We are so thankful and blessed and had the most magical day!“
Charne & Ryno

Stacey & Kyle
“Thank you so much for your beautiful cake, it was absolutely delicious. Thank you for going the extra mile with the cake stand. I loved it!“
Raylene & Mark
“My experience with Gaynor was impeccable she was incredibly professional, on time, organized and an absolute pleasure to work with. I got married on 11 March 2021 and Gaynor created an incredible 10 tier macaron cake with a one tier chocolate cake on the top. She perfectly blended the coral color of the macarons from light coral to dark coral and I was absolutely shocked that before the night was over the cake was finished. All the guests complimented the cake it tasted incredible the macarons melted in your mouth the guests could not get over how amazing the cake looked as well as tasted and neither could I. I would recommend Gaynor over and over and over again it was money well spent and quite frankly she was the best supplier overall at my wedding. Thank you Gaynor!“
Sophia & Rihan

Demisha & Jody
“Thank you the cake looked and tasted amazing.”
Amanda & David
“We couldn’t be happier with our wedding cake produced by Gay and A Cake Story. The whole process was seamless from start to finish. We live abroad and so communication was paramount in organising our wedding and Gay was by far our most responsive and helpful vendor. We had a very specific design in mind, especially with my wife and I wanting 2 different cakes (half profiteroles, half traditional cake), and your team was able to deliver something that looked exactly liked we’d imagine which we were thrilled about. Our guests also loved the design and we received a wave of compliments on all flavours! Thank you very much for everything!”
Daniella & Duncan
“The cake was amazing..it looked amazing, smelt amazing and tasted amazing.
Thank you so much for adding a special touch to our amazing day.”
Hannerie & Eric
“I just want to say thank you very much for the beautiful cake. It was a huge success.
I had so many guests asking me where I got the cake from as it was the best cake they ever had. Friends calling each other because they just had to taste it. I heard a few friends saying they will drive all the way to Britannia Bay for that cake.
It was amazing. Thank you again for the beautiful hard work and effort. It is very much appreciated.”
Izelle & Willem
“The cake not only looked great, it tasted even better. I had to ask Cindy to pack it up for me because the guests insisted on having some more after dinner.”
Lexi & Mike
“Thank you so incredibly much for such a wonderful cake, we could not have been happier with it – both beautiful and delicious! x “
Jody & Bryan
“Myself, my husband and my parents just want to thank you all for making our wedding day the best day of our lives. We couldn’t have asked for more. Thank you for everything and wish all of you well… Your next bride and groom have no idea how epic their special day is going to be. Our guests are still raving.
Thank you again.”
Kim & Simon
“I just wanted to extend a huge thank you for our fabulous cake, it was enjoyed by all.
Exactly what we wanted.”
Marcelle & Jay
“I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the beautiful creations you made for our wedding day. I believe you had put your heart and soul into making the dessert table, and it showed – it was just absolutely magical. Everything was done to perfection. The bits that I tasted, like the wedding cake, doughnuts and cheesecakes were wonderful. I wish I had tasted everything! The guests raved about the puddings and there were a few “smash & grab” moments when they wanted take-aways after the party! All the cakes were demolished within a day…
Thank you again for making our day so special. You were just marvelous and it means the world xxx”
Karin & Rob
“I would like to thank you for the beautiful but most importantly delicious wedding cake.
Nobody of our friends and family have tasted such a “lekker” worteltaart before.
It was awesome. We had the most perfect day and it will be in our minds forever!”
Carl & Chané
“Our deliciously decadent wedding cake! It was the best of both our worlds; Carl the koeksisters and myself the carrot cake…WOW!
A showstopper of note visually and on taste!”
Melissa & Markus
“I just wanted to take a quick moment to say thank you for your beautiful creations…the cake was absolutely devine and delicious. The cookies were lovely…everything was perfect! It was such a pleasure “working” with you and you made everything so easy and effortless.
We had such an amazing day on Saturday and couldn’t have wished for more. A bit sad it’s all over…I wish there was still some cake left!
Thank you so much again, Gay…I really appreciate all your hard work. Everything of the best for the future.”
