Ma Mere Maison

Sweet and salty collide at Cape Town's very own French Style Confectioner, 'Ma Mere Maison'.

Based in buzzing Salt River, this beautiful, quirky little confectioner boasts an amazing assortment of hand-crafted treats, all made on site where visitors are encouraged and often rewarded with tastes of the girls' latest experimental delicacy!

Their signature Salted Macadamia Nougat, has already gained cult status around Cape Town, as have their Elegant Red Velvet Cake Pops. Other goodies in their repertoire worth salivating over, include Olive Oil and Roasted Almond Nougat; glorious Honey and Vanilla Bean Marshmallows coated in Roasted Coconut; Soft White Chocolate and Stem Ginger Fudge and their sought-after speciality, genuine Parisian Macaroons - more than enough to challenge Cape Town's pre-summer calorie-reduction crowd!

Owned and run by Lexi Bechet and Partner Di Spicer; 'Ma Mere Maison', (For the non-French linguists, "My Mother's Kitchen"), positively glows with Lexi's love for confectionery and her enthusiasm to delight her followers with unusual and exotic flavours.

Ma Mere Maison's exquisitely hand-crafted products are not just limited to the shop. Increasingly they may be found at a variety of wine-farms and deli's.

On Saturday mornings you will find Lexi and Di either at the Neighbourgoods Market (The Old Biscuit Mill) or in their shop carefully constructing one of their Macaroon towers for an elegant Cape Town wedding.

Find Ma Mere Maison at Unit G3, Salt Circle Arcade, 19 Kent Road, Salt River (opposite the Old Biscuit Mill)  or
