Last Friday I was invited to a High Tea at Junipa's for there Media Launch, although quite a distance for me it was a journey worth travelling to this heaven sent coffee shop at the Hobart Grove Centre in Bryanston.
This might sound cliche' but I mean it when I say, you haven't tasted what cake is supposed to taste like until you have put one of this perfected creations in your mouth. It quite literally melts in your mouth and for a few seconds, while you have that sugary goodness teasing your taste buds, everything is right in the world.
My favourite treats for the day was were the Red Velvet Petite Fours ( that's the little one with the strawberry on top) and the Sundried Tomato Galettes (the little pizza on my plate).
They welcomed us with warm smiles and filled us with baking knowledge, offered us perfectly brewed coffee and treated us to little bites of heaven. Wish I had more space in my tummy to fill it up and try everything they had to offer but will definitely be going back to taste the rest.
The launch was not the opening of this gem as they have been in business for years but the launch of there new Cake Studio. From tiered wedding cakes almost as beautiful as the bride, to birthday sponges drenched in Frangelico covered in chocolate Ganache, every creation designed and baked by Junipa's is unique.
"As an artisan bakery, we differentiate ourselves by using only the freshest ingredients to increase the depth of flavour and diverse textures that are a permanent feature of all our baked products. This attention to detail and passion for quality food is our trademark is of course extended to the beautiful cakes we create," explains owner Julian Platt.
Along with planning my wedding cake now before I have even found a suitable man, Junipa's also offers novelty cakes for your wee one and while they look great for them, we can now have cake that actually tastes as great as they look.
You really should go have a look and encounter this mouth watering experience for yourself and treat yourself to bakers, George and Michael, as they create gorgeously delectable confectionery. To order your own baked creation call (011) 706 2387 or visit their Website.
