It’s finally here: National Cake Day 2020! And instead of bombarding your feed with historically questionable quotes regarding cake, and letting people eat it, we thought we’d put together a guide to some of the most delicious cakes and bakes from The Bakery at NetFlorist! Why? Because life is what you ‘bake’ of it!

What is National Cake Day?

If you’ve been wondering, “Is there a National Cake Day? And when is it?” The answer is: YES! National Cake Day in South Africa falls on the 26th of November every year, and is a great way to celebrate the joy cakes, cake pops, and cupcakes bring! Whether it’s a slice of your mother’s famous chocolate birthday cake, a square of gender-themed baby shower cake, or a piece of red velvet wedding cake at the ceremony of your closest friends, cake plays an integral part of celebrating life. Which is why we think you should celebrate life this National Cake Day with gift ideas and baked goodies to surprise and amaze!

No one is quite sure what the origin of National Cake Day is. But the NetFlorist Bunch is grateful someone decided to celebrate these delectable delights! (Plus, you don’t have to be a stickler and only eat cake! We won’t tell on you if you enjoy some cookies and biscuits, or a brownie or two.) This is a great occasion to draw inspiration from for future presents like birthday gift ideas, or for what you’re going to eat instead of tonight’s supper!

And there are so many ways to make their cake dreams ‘crumb’ true on this special day. If you are feeling adventurous, why not spend the day baking a friend’s favourite cake as a thoughtful gift? You could invite some of your nearest and dearest over for a cake decorating contest? Or even better, you could surprise your loved ones, colleagues, or network with a decadent and gourmet cake straight from yours truly, right to their door! Ordering from us is as easy as ‘baking’ candy from a baby. Just, please don’t take candy from babies. That’s not nice.
