Talking Dedicated Sugarcraft & Cake Decoration with Roxy Floquet
Real talk. Roxanne Floquet is Cape Town’s cake and baked treat queen. There truly is no one quite like her, with her skill and precise attention to detail she is undoubtedly one of the most talented bakers and sugar crafters in this country. Specialising in cakes for weddings and special occasions, and the most intricately iced biscuits you have ever seen, she’s become something of a household name through her dedication to her passion.
These ingredients coupled with Roxy’s endless skills means that everything she makes is perfection.
Decadent cakes that are somehow still light and biscuits that are (almost) too beautiful to eat. Her icing work alone will have your jaw on the floor, give her a design, any design, and she will make it happen. Nutcrackers? Delft designs? Emojis? You name it, she can ice it. Her deft touch and seemingly endless levels of patience result in pieces of art, in biscuit form.
If you’re in the market for a cake, especially a wedding cake, Roxy is your girl. She has a curated list of 19 cake flavours for you to choose from, although she can literally make any flavour your heart desires. When it comes to choosing your flavour, she sits you down in her dreamy tasting room with your choice of eight potential favourites and you have tea, while discussing your colour schemes, ideas and dreams in general. Brides-to-be know that nearly every aspect of planning a wedding can be frenetic but with Roxy, you can rest easy knowing that the process of having your cake done, won’t be.
What Roxy does is a very special thing. In this modern age of bigger-better-faster-cheaper, it is always a beautiful thing when someone rebels against that with curated, crafted skill. Simply being around her is calming and inspiring.
Though she may seem like the perfect cookie-cutter mom and wife, she’s got an edge – a cheeky glint in her eye that allows her to keep everything that she does fresh and exciting.
She keeps up to date with trends, working them into tried and trusted classics, while staying true to herself. Roxy is a formidable talent and we should all be very thankful that she came back to make Cape Town her home. We’re not quite sure what we would do without her beautifully iced biscuits.
