‘Tyranno-cake-o-saurus Rex’ Stars at Good Food & Wine Show

The Cake Genie is a specialty cake shop located in the South of Johannesburg. They specialise in custom creations, novelty- and wedding cakes. The owner and head creative of The Cake Genie, Deon Swarts, took on the challenge to make a life-size dinosaur-cake to put on display at the 2017 Good Food and Wine show, but he knew he couldn’t do it alone.

When he reached out to Rich’s for assistance, we happily obliged by supplying 250 of our signature rectangular sponges that would eventually form the body of this enormous cake-sculpture.

“Tyranno-cake-o-saurus Rex” or “Rexie” was the centre piece of the 2017 Good Food and Wine show and was a “roaring” success by all measures.

The final completed cake weighed around 800kg and stood a staggering 3.5m high! “Tyranno-cake-o-saurus Rex” or “Rexie” was the centre piece of the 2017 Good Food and Wine show and was a “roaring” success by all measures.

Cake Genie owners, Deon and Carol Swarts, expressed their gratitude towards the Rich’s® team for helping them achieve this mammoth task.

“Rexie” was donated to Food For Africa after the event so not a crumb was wasted.
