Sustainable Treats: Cake Pops

Shara Burger | From The Kitchen

You know Tanda Tula is all about sustainability. From our power to our water and even sometimes to our kitchen ingredients, however not quite to the same extent. 

If Chef Ryan has to ever use left overs (which, as you can imagine, is almost never!) he has 2 simple rules: 

  1. The dish must be made within a day, and still be fresh and wholesome. 
  2. The dish must taste even better than its original. 

The latter is most definitely true of the delicious cake pops we serve at teatime before your afternoon safari. These moreish treats are the perfect way to use leftover cake or brownies, both of which can actually be frozen either before making the pops or after.  

 Cake pops are really the most ideal, sustainable food offering we have. And, trust us, there are definitely no left overs after the cake pops are served!   


  • 500 g left over cake or brownies 
  • 100 g butter, soft 
  • 200 g icing sugar
  • 400 g dark chocolate 


  1. Crumble the left-over cake into a mixing bowl. 
  2. In a separate bowl, cream the butter and icing sugar together until light and fluffy. 
  3. Add half of the butter icing to the cake crumb and mix together. (Add just enough butter icing to make the cake mix stick together.  Add more icing if needed, depending on the moisture of the cake) 
  4. Form the cake mixture into small balls and lay on a tray lined with greaseproof paper. 
  5. Place a toothpick into the top of each cake ball. 
  6. Place the balls in the freezer for 2 hours to semi freeze. 
  7. Melt the dark chocolate in a glass bowl over simmering water. 
  8. Dip each cake ball into the chocolate (holding the toothpick). Shake off any excess chocolate and then place back onto the greaseproof paper. 
  9. Place in the fridge until needed.

Booking Terms & Conditions

Rates are quoted in South African Rand (ZAR) and include VAT. Rates are reviewed quarterly and are subject to change.


Bookings can be held as provisional for up to 14 days, after which the booking is required to release or confirm. A 20% refundable deposit is required to confirm the booking.


Once confirmed with a 20% deposit, the booking is held on a status of ‘confirmed with refundable deposit’ until any of the following becomes true:

  • The booking is cancelled in writing by the agent.
  • Another request is received with overlapping dates. At such a time, the 20% refundable deposit shall be required to be converted
  • into a 20% non-refundable commitment fee. At this stage, the booking status changes to ‘confirmed with commitment.’ • In such an event, Tanda Tula will contact the client and give them the option to either confirm with the non-refundable
  • commitment fee or reschedule their dates, or, failing that, to release the booking.
  • At 60 days prior to arrival, when the full payment is due, the booking status changes to ‘confirmed with full-payment.’

Final payment is due 60 days prior to arrival. Any outstanding balance on the total reservation value shall be required to be settled at 60 days prior to arrival.

All refundable deposits, commitment fees and full payments are held in a separate call account and do not become part of the operational cash flow until the guest has stayed.

The amount stated on the invoice is what must be received by Tanda Tula nett of bank charges.


Cancellations must be received and acknowledged by Tanda Tula in writing.

‘Confirmed with refundable deposit’: bookings carry no cancellation fees up to 61 days prior to arrival.

‘Confirmed with commitment’ or ‘Confirmed with full-payment’: in the event of any reservation being cancelled after Tanda Tula has issued a confirmation, for any reason other than a WHO-recognised pandemic that impacts the booking, the following cancellation fees will apply:

  • ‘Confirmed with commitment’: if cancelled more than 60 days prior to arrival, the cancellation fee shall be equal to the 20% non- refundable commitment fee.
  • ‘Confirmed with full-payment’: if cancelled between 60 days prior to arrival, the full reservation value is forfeited.

All cancelled bookings that qualify for a refund, will be refunded less a handling fee valued at 5% of the refund amount.


Tanda Tula will allow postponement of a booking for up to 12 months, if travel is cancelled with a commitment fee or 60 days or less prior to arrival due to a WHO-recognised pandemic directly impacting the guests’ ability to travel (e.g. lockdown, no flights, guest not allowed to board a flight, guest falls ill due to a pandemic and unable to travel).

In the event of a WHO-recognised pandemic directly impacting the ability of Tanda Tula to meet its obligations with respect to the booking, all monies received, including the commitment fee, will be fully refunded (e.g. lockdown in RSA, government restrictions on trade).

Any refund is given at the discretion of Tanda Tula management and will be charge a handling fee valued at 5% of the refund amount.

All travellers are advised to take out fully comprehensive travel insurance with ‘cancellation for no reason’. This insurance must be able to fully cover cancellation of travel fewer than 60 days prior to arrival.
