So here’s some info about the Mucking Afazing people who work at Charly’s Bakery- night and day- yes we work when you sleep too! We always have music playing while we bake and ice and our staff may eat whatever they want to while they are at work.
Each member of staff gets a free birthday cake for themself and all immediate members of their family, each year. We work so hard to make everyone else beautiful, delicious cakes, and we want our staff to share their pride and joy at the wonderful cakes we make, with their families too.
Do you know that each of our staff have a photo of our President, Thabo Mbeki, with the birthday cake we made for him, up in their homes to show their friends and families.

We call ourselves “the Rainbow Bakery” as we are a proud and happy mix of so many different nations. We have Xhosa, Tswana, Sotho, Portuguese Angolan, Congolese, Jews, Germans, Muslims, Christians and We live and work happily together.
