WHO RUNS THIS SHIP​?

WHY, NIKKI ALBERTYN OF COURSE!

After completing a part-time pastry course in 2015, Nikki’s graphic design skills and love for all things visual melted into one with the art of baking. She began to share her sweet adventures on Instagram, gradually creating a demand for more of her drool-worthy designs, and so… Sweet LionHeart was born, baby!

OUR STORY

From taking our first steps on Instagram in 2015, to having a flourishing online business, we have grown into a team of seven beautifully diverse womxn pooling our strengths to make Cape Town a sweeter place with crafted cake designs and treats. 

Along the way, as we have grown, an incredible online community has grown with us. We have become known not only for the tasty mouthfuls that fly out of our kitchen, but also the breath-taking images of our work. 

We have worked on projects for the likes of Athi Patra Ruga, Le Creuset, GoodLeaf and Moirs, hosted our very own High Tea event and collaborated with fellow bakers and businesses across the globe.

Beyond being able to taste and see our creations, we aim to inspire like-minded pastry chefs and aspiring bakers across the globe through our workshops and online school, growing a community through knowledge sharing.

We're in the game of cake, but first and foremost we're here to add a little (or a big) touch of happiness to your day!
