Charly's Cake Angels
Airs: Friday 9:00AM
Filmed by Cooked in Africa Films, Charly's Cake Angels invites viewers into the magical world of one of Cape Town's best-loved bakeries.
Charly's Cake Angels provides South African audiences with an intimate view of life behind-the-scenes of Charly's Bakery, a family owned and operated bakery nestled in the heart of Cape Town's Fringe district, best known for its anything-is-possible approach to baking.
Founded 21 years ago by Charly and Jacqui Biess, this graffiti-clad gem is where Jacqui and her three daughters (Alexandra, Daniella and Roche) together with 33 staff conjure up Cape Town's most fantastic cake creations.
Charly's Cake Angels is more than a documentary set in a bakery, offering a unique and entertaining view into the lives of the "Angels" and the community they serve, providing an entertaining and heart-warming showcase to truly "mucking afazing" cakes that do more than make people's mouths water.
Don't be fooled into thinking Charly's Bakery is a factory. It's a philosophy and a way of life, with a strong local and social media following.
The series portrays the joie de vivre, laughter, creative innovation and candy-striped chaos that patrons don't usually see, to a local TV audience and beyond, using social media and in-store promotional mechanisms.
Each 26-minute episode is themed, from the thrilling "Cape Town Cake" episode where the Angels create a five-tier cake depicting the magic of the Mother City for the Design Indaba, to the unveiling of the "Fashion" episode where the Bakery partnered with Cosmopolitan Magazine to produce an inspiring range of handbag and shoe cakes which will leave viewers with their mouths gaping.
The heart-wrenching "Revenge of the Rhino" episode sees the Angels off on an adventure to Aquila Game Reserve to celebrate the birth of a baby Rhino. Tragically, since the filming of the Series, the Reserve has lost two Rhinos to poaching.
From wedding masterpieces to birthday fantasies, there is no tier too tall, and no request too small – Charly's Cake Angels thrive on making any dream come true.
Get ready to fall in love with the Angels and ganache-covered creatures of Charly's Bakery.
