Butterfly House

Butterfly House, our community resource centre, was built in Fairyland in 2008 (through the generous donation by Ivar Koteng and Paarl Round Table). Fairyland is a previous informal settlement, 10km outside of Paarl. The founding vision of Butterfly House was to address and expand the holistic care practices provided by Drakenstein Palliative Hospice (DPH).

Over 300 children registered from 2-18 are enrolled and participate in the Butterfly House programmes.

“Baking these cakes every year is a highlight for me,” shares Mynhardt, “for weeks my KWV Cathedral Cellar Kitchen in Paarl smells of spice and is a hive of activity as we line cake tins, chop nuts and dried fruit, mix and bake. It has become synonymous with reflection on the past year, and only my best wishes for 2022 accompanies each cake!”

Mynhardt’s Christmas Cake

Chef Mynhardt Joubert’s iconic fruitcake will again take centre stage this year on many a festive table. It has been Chef Mynhardt’s pledge since the inception of his Festive Fruitcake Charity drive in 2016 to light up South African households during the festive season with his cherry-bejewelled cakes. Now in its sixth year, Mynhardt’s famous cakes have entrenched themselves as a holiday tradition, and for the charities who benefit from the proceeds of its sales, this tradition makes a huge impact too.

This year sees particular reason for celebration. Festive season 2022 can once again see loved ones gathered around a table to celebrate each other with unbridled joy. Families and friends can break bread together unmasked and look forward to the lunch and dinner finale to crown the feast: The much-loved festive fruitcake.
