These baking queens have made a name for themselves as having the “the most delicious, beautiful cakes in Auckland”. This proudly pink, all female team is found on K-Road. ’Girls Girls Girls’ flashing on a neon sign like a Las Vegas strip club and a large gauzy curtain sweeping across their boutique kitchen adds a feminine mystique. These finely curated cakes are born with finesse, using the best quality ingredients. Their decorations are all natural and won’t leave you with a blast of sickly sweetness- expect flavour, not sugar. There are always dairy and gluten free options available, and an entire menu of vegan cakes and sweet treats are sure to leave the conscious consumer smiling.

The Caker’s founder, Jordan Rondel, is well known for raising the standard of cake in Auckland. After publishing two books on the subject, she has developed a well-loved blog and social media following and her recipes are regularly featured in Sunday magazine. While wedding season is their busiest time, they bake cakes, cookies and truffles all year round for any occasion.

The Caker also sell baking mixes to take home, which only require a few additional ingredients and are a great alternative for those wanting to try their hand in the kitchen without the fuss of sieves and measuring scales. There are a variety of events hosted in the store, such as baking lessons and cake decorating nights with J. Rondel herself (which sell out very quickly), so keep an eye on their social media for updates.
