Pretty In Pink Artisan Cakes 

Cake is so much more than sugar, icing, butter and flour.

It is imbued with a magic than makes it rise above its simple ingredients. Think back to your childhood. A cake was a promise. It was presents to come, it was a feeling of being special, and being a person of so much importance that someone had taken time and effort to make, or find you the perfect cake.

And standing over that cake, blowing out candles, was a moment in time when you truly were the centre of the earth. It was when you got to make a wish, and then whisper it into your best friends’ ear, as they were the only person on earth who would understand.


Cake is a promise, which is why we are simple obsessed with the new range of these delicious cakes that are coming from the kitchens of Cafe Hemingway’s.


In the wise words of Julie Child, “a party without a cake is just a meeting”

About me

Director | Wordsmith ~ Philippa worked her proverbial rear-end off to gain her MBA in 2006, while working full time, getting married, and having 2 babies. Though not regretting it, it certainly taught her how under-appreciated the art of juggling can be. After having worked in a number of sales and operational roles, she got tired of making money for other people and now only works with people and companies she loves. Her company is Purple Raindrop and they are a BigCityLife Partner on all things fabulous.
