Trained patisserie chef Zakeeya Mitha, began offering delicious French macarons at local Durban markets in 2013. After being inspired by a picture of an ice cream macaron online, Zakeeya began experimenting with the sweet treat and launched her first range of ice cream macarons in May last year.

The confections are available in a wide range of flavours including mint, espresso or Nutella (a crowd pleaser) or smoked mocha, Bombay crush and bubble gum. Sugarlicious also serves a French kisses range, dipped in Belgian chocolate. Flavours in this range include Ferrero Rocher® and Raffaello.

While Sugarlicious doesn’t have a permanent store as yet, it does set up shop at markets around KZN and is even taking its sweet treats to the Coffee & Chocolate Expo on 24 and 25 September at The Green Point Cricket Club in Cape Town. The business also takes orders in both Durban and Johannesburg and even offers Halaal versions.

Follow Sugarlicious on Instagram for updates on what Zakeeya is up to and where you can find her popping up.
