It‘s such a pleasure highlight the annual Festive Fruitcake Charity Drive!
For six years, this fruitcake campaign has been the way for the culinary team of Chef Mynhardt to do something tangible for vulnerable children in the community and deliver a message of hope.
All proceeds benefit Butterfly House, a community resource centre in the Drakenstein District – aimed at creating a hopeful future, and Helpende Handjies in Montagu. Both NGO’s run feeding schemes for children, as part of their programmes.
KWV, Sasko, Moir’s, Montagu Snacks and Lactalis are on board for another year and with their continued support the team can bake 2 000 cakes this year, 800 more than previously.
The classic red and white gift-wrapped package includes a handmade Christmas wreath. As with the baking of the cakes, the whole team is involved: Vytjie the fruitcake queen with love in her finger tips, her husband Danny, Maritha Papiere, Cedrick on logistics and Jasmine Sponsie on quality control. They cut the vine shoots in the depth of winter, then wove and decorated it all by hand. They do the hard work with a smile, knowing it will benefit their own communities.
Go ahead, get a taste, but do keep some for later. Well-wrapped and sprinkled with brandy now and then, the flavour will improve through nurturing – just like hope.
The festive fruitcake sells at R450 (excluding delivery) for a 2 kg cake, gift-wrapped in recyclable packaging, baked in a square pan for easy cutting.
