In the words of Bec herself she shares her passion of why she makes cakes and what makes her tick:

“When I want to show someone that they are important to me, loved, cherished and welcome, I make them cake.
When my friend married the love of her life, the man that makes her smile so big and true and invited everyone who fills her heart with joy and love, I made them a cake.
When I want to celebrate the complicated but perfect fabulousness that is my best friend, I make her a cake
When my neighbour brings her new baby home and she is tired and emotional and overwhelmed and so, so, so in love – I make her a cake.

Because nothing says “you are loved”, “I care about you”, “I am here for you” or “Thank you” like a slice of cake, made from scratch with honest ingredients.  I am passionate simply because cakes bring people together.”

Rebecca oversee’s every process from discussing and understanding your cake brief, building flavour combinations (that will absolutely blow your mind), baking, constructing, decorating, delivering and styling your masterpiece.
