Daily Delights

Daily Delights

Back in the day, our moms or grannies used to regularly bake cakes so that there was always something sweet and delicious in the cake tin. Life was lived at a slower pace then, and there seemed to be more time to indulge in the delights of planning and preparing meals, desserts and tasty treats for the family. Château Gâteaux knows just how busy and booked up your days are, cake lover, so we have cooked up some easy-going creations for you, which are perfect as an everyday treat. 

Our culinary chapter on Daily Delights provides the ideal answer to having something sweet and delicious in your freezer every day of the week at the click of a button. Order through our online store and we will deliver straight to your door. It really is a piece of cake!

Cake has the amazing ability to be different things to different people. To your children coming home from school in the afternoon, a slice of cake (however small for the little ones or however large for the budding soccer star) is a quick pick-me-up before getting stuck into the afternoon’s homework. And what about putting a piece into their lunchbox for tomorrow’s treat – good thinking, Mom. Choose our Chocolate Nostalgia cake from our Daily Delights, and you will keep the kids happy forever. 

TOP TIP: Did you know that you can cut a round cake into rectangular slices very easily? Cut the cake vertically down the middle and separate the two halves carefully. Then cut a strip about 2.5cm wide off the cut side of one of the halves. Hold a cutting board upright against the strip and tip the strip and board together to lie flat. Slice the strip into rectangular pieces 2.5 cm wide or wider if you like. You can continue cutting in this manner if you need to slice the whole cake in one sitting, or you can push the two halves gently together again, so they keep moist until you need to remove another strip. Now your delectable Daily Delight will keep on giving slice after slice after slice.

Are you on dessert duty for Sunday lunch with the extended family? Well our traditional South African Peppermint Caramel Tart is the perfect solution. Made with a biscuit base, layered with caramel and peppermint mousse, topped with fresh whipped cream and peppermint cocoa delight, the whole family will think you pulled out grandma’s recipe book and baked all morning. Shhh we won’t tell if you don’t! The beauty of dessert is that it is not pretending to be anything but a sumptuous, sweet thing to savour and enjoy.  

TOP TIP No. 2:

 

  • Heat your knife in warm water first for a clean, smooth cut through your cake.
  • Stand your knife in a tall glass or jug of warm tap water before you begin slicing.
  • Wipe the excess water off the blade with a tea towel when you take it out of the water.
  • Re-warm the knife between each cut in the cake. The warmed metal will cut through a cake more quickly and easily than a cold knife.


For those occasions when your bestie arrives at the door for a catch up and cake, or hubby needs cheering up after a hard day at the office, or maybe you simply forgot that you asked the neighbours around for tea, our range of Daily Delights is there to be your helping hand in the kitchen. Gorgeous cakes at exceptional prices – Vanilla Dream, Rococo Chocolate Cake, Swiss Carrot Cake, Cookies & Cream, Mousse au Chocolat and our famous Black Forest Cake are all firm favourites and will all fit perfectly in your sweet and delicious cake tin.
