On Friday, 22 May from 14:00-16:00, Rock Girl and Sam Gates, author of Food for your Brood are partnering with Claremont Pick and Pay to host the third Rock Girl Bake Day at St. Cyprians School. Twenty girls from Manenberg, Gugulethu, Claremont, Rondebosch, and Oranjezicht will meet to create cakes for the important women in their lives as part of a joint leadership programme. The lead baker at Pick and Pay, Nazley, will assist with the training of the girls and share with them her career advice. The girls will leave with a beautiful hand-decorated cake and card for the Wonder Woman in their lives. The first prize winner will receive a food hamper to take home to their family.  On top of that, each girl will receive a copy of Sam Gates cookbook, Food for your Brood


Sam will also be a cooking demo at the Good Food and Wine Show. Catch her at the “Sushi for squeamish kids” demo at 10:30 on Saturday 23rd May.

More about the Rock Girl program:

In 2015, Rock Girl is collaborating with the St. Cyprians Extension Class on the "Wonder Woman" project, which encourages girls to research and learn more about South African women. The girls are learning about iconic women, as well as local heroes and the women in their own lives. The girls are also learning about one another, sharing both the things that make them unique and the things that unite them as young women in Africa. The project will culminate in a radio show produced jointly by the girls with the assistance of the Children's Radio Foundation youth reporters. Girls from this project will benefit from the Rock Girl Bake Day - they will each create a cake to take home to the special Wonder Woman in their life, as well as learn more about the skills required to work at a commercial bakery (Nazley, the baker form Pick and Pay was brilliant at our last Bake Day). The girls will also share stories about the women who will receive their cakes at the end of the session.


Rock Girl is a South African organisation that creates safe spaces for girls and women. Rock Girl collaborates with artists and designers to create symbolic public safe spaces around the city of Cape Town to support weekly afterschool and holiday programmes for girls ages 10-17 in Manenberg. Rock Girl was inspired by a group of grade 5 girls who wanted to create a safe space at their school, Red River Primary. Since 2010, over 500 girls have participated in Rock Girl's programmes. Twenty of the founding girls are now in grade 10 and are active participants in the Resilient Girls high school group, which includes girls from eight different schools.
