The Gingerbread House Bakery is a cake studio based in Edenvale, Johannesburg.

The owner/pastry chef, Natalie Rousseau, is dedicated to baking and presenting the most delicious and exciting of sweet treats. From French Macarons made the traditional way in addition to cakes so decadent even the thought will make your mouth water.

The Gingerbread House Bakery was founded in 2016 by self-taught pastry chef & cake decorator Natalie Rousseau. Amidst the fondant saturated cake market, we decided to create a specialty buttercream cake design practice that would combine the nostalgic flavors of neighborhood bakeries with the beauty of modern day flair. Now, she is sought after for her delicious macarons, exciting cakes and to die for cupcakes.

The enthusiasm for The Gingerbread House creations continues to grow, and with sincere dedication towards dessert making, our mission is to provide all of our customers with delicious, beautiful & memorable sweet treats for any occasion.

Our signature delicacy, the macaron, is handmade, from the freshest egg whites and only the best almond flour. There are over 40 flavours to choose from, perfect for any wedding, birthday or special/corporate event.

We also specialise in beautiful wedding candy tables. A sweet display is much more fun as you can incorporate all your favourites onto one table and serve it like a delicious dessert platter.

Stay tuned as we introduce new, exciting ways to make your dessert desires & experiences a proud part of our ongoing Gingerbread House story. With your continued support, we are in the process of making plans to open our very own store.
