What makes my cakes different?
My ethos is informed by my love of home baking and something my grandparents told me when I started: your cakes should taste even better than they look, and that is what I’ve become known for.
All of my recipes contain ground almonds to replace some or all of the flour, lending a beautiful texture and creating a more wholesome, moist, and sumptuous cake. Some people call my cakes dense; I think that's a compliment.
I pack my cakes full of things like Belgian couverture chocolate and fruit so every bite is as heavenly as the one before. Not many things are more important to me thant the quality of my ingredients.
To decorate, my signature look is simply a selection of fresh flowers. There is no food coloring or fondant around here.
Shop Cake Kits
I chose some of my favourite recipes to turn into cake mixes (I like to call them ‘cake 'kits’ because they come complete with decorations and a non-stick baking pan liner), and I put all the same quality ingredients I use on a daily basis inside of them so you end up having baked a true Caker cake.

Writing recipes is one of the best parts of my job. I wrote my first recipe book in 2013, and now have four in my repetoire. Becasue I'm a compeltely self-taught baker, my books are suitable for home bakers and while each of them have their own theme, they all focus on alternative ingredients and contain a lot of gluten free, refined sugar free and vegan recipes.

My recipes blog is an ever evolving collection of free recipes - I try to post recipes on here at least once a week so there are hundreds!
I grew up in Auckland, New Zealand but got my love for food and baking from spending my holidays in Paris with my grandparents.
In 2010 when I was 21 I made a life-changing decision - I turned my passion into a career and officially became The Caker. It all started with a bakery making custom cakes and started turning heads. Soon after I got my first recipe book deal, but it was only when I realized that I wanted people outside of my city to try Caker cakes that I turned some of my favorite cakes from the bakery into DIY baking kits.
In 2019 I moved to Los Angeles to expand The Caker and now I'm riding the crazy wave that is starting and growing a business in a whole new country. I'm also the judge on the soon-to-air fourth season of "The Great Kiwi Bake Off" and spend a lot of my time on cake related collaborations with other brands.
I run The Caker with my partner in crime, my sister, Anouk. She joined me after learning a career in law wasn’t quite for her, and we’ve never looked back. Sisters rule.
