One of Gugulethu’s busiest streets had a pop up sugar stop on Saturday when the Masidlale Party planners decided to exhibit their baking skills in Steve Biko Street.

The company is owned and run by three friends in Nosipho Ntuthu, Siyasanga Soga and Thina Ntuthu, who have been event planners for the past six years.

The business was founded in 2010 and offers event planning and catering to children’s events such as Grade R graduations and funfairs.

Nosipho said that they decided to do something different by offering a cake sale on the street. “We wanted to give people a taste of our baking skills.

For the first three years of our business we outsourced the baking but three years ago Thina started baking for us and it has been going well,” said Nosipho.

She said that they wanted the people walking and driving past to have a taste of what they have to offer.
On the menu were scones, brownies, and carrot cake as well as banana loaf.

“People have been stopping to look and buy the goods on offer. As a result we have run out on a number of items.

They seem to be enjoying which is a stamp of approval for us and we are hoping that they can book us to plan their events,” said Soga.

She said that they are planning to make their cake stand a more frequent feature on Steve Biko Street.

“After receiving such a great response we are definitely going to make it weekends stalls so that people can get this cakes from our stall,” added Soga.

Nosipho added that their passion remained children and that they have big plans for next year but remained tight-lipped on the details.

“When the time is right we will let you know but all we can reveal now is that it will be in the child development environment,” she said.
