Location: Hawkes Bay,New Zealand
Hi I am Mandy,also known as MJ,hence the name of my cake business MJ'S Cakes...lol.
I Live in sunny Hawkes Bay,New Zealand,a real foodies, tourism spot with lots of fabulous wineries,and restaurants plus famous for our Mission Estate winery concert and Art Deco and we are a very popular wedding destination. This is most of my business creating gorgeous wedding cakes for my wonderful couples.
I am a qualified baker and after 19 years of working in the commercial side of the baking industry 5 years ago things changed & my life now is working for myself, creating deliciously divine special occasion cakes to order and boy some amazing cakes.....i have certainly found my passion.
Over the past 2-3 years i have been self teaching as I am certainly no artist and most of the cakes these days are like art....edible art, all sorts of cake decorating skills i have been learning from the challenges my clients give me from the styles of cakes they require. I certainly amaze myself at what i can now create out of cake and icing truly outstanding,i get inspired from so many other cakers i have met through Facebook, pinterest, twitter and i use to watch TV shows, really inspire & drive me to strive for perfection in all i create.
BUT 1 thing for sure is that while the look will sell the first cake......& taste will sell the second, for me it's about all 3...taste, look and customer service...my clients have to be happy with the whole MJ'S Cakes experience otherwise there is no point.
Making my clients happy brings me happiness.
Thanks for stopping by and hope you like the cakes i have been honoured to create for my fabulous clients.
