Naturally beautiful, wholesome cakes

We see cakes as the edible expressions of love

They can sometimes say what words can't. They bring people together. They are the defining symbols of celebration. Our years of experimentation and absolute dedication to perfecting our recipes are worth it when we witness someone taking that bite that makes them close their eyes and feel delight. This is what we work for: to create cakes that confirm and even emphasise the beauty of a moment
 
 

Our cakes are both better for the body and the taste buds 

We love replacing white sugar and refined flours with ingredients like honey, maple, ground almonds and spelt flour, and using nut milks and coconut oil. These options lend a more complex flavour and make our cakes more moist and delicious. We never compromise on the quality of our ingredients, and swear by using organic free range eggs, pure NZ butter, organic unbleached stoneground flours, and the very best 70% cocoa Belgian chocolate.
 
  

Our aesthetic is based on a belief that natural is beautiful

Our cakes do not need the plastic distractions of food colouring or Barbie-bright buttercream. You will find no rainbow sprinkles here. We'd rather the beautiful little black flecks of vanilla bean, crushed pistachios, and drips of berry coulis. All of our cake decorations are natural – from our fresh flowers to our freeze-dried fruit scatters. Our belief truly is this: cakes need not look 100% preened, they need to be 100% delicious.
  
  

The Caker story has been full of surreal successes

Since the early days of baking from home, it has developed into one of Auckland's most successful cake businesses and requires a team of four to fulfill our orders. We have received a great deal of publicity over the years, and maintain an ever increasing clientele. The support that our cakes receive from local tastemakers speaks for itself - our gluten free flourless dark chocolate cake has been crowned the best in Auckland by Metro Magazine
  
  

Ordering

OUR CAKES ARE MADE TO ORDER

We get very busy in The Caker kitchen so we prefer you to order as much in advance as possible!

We ask that you order at least 24 hours before you need your cake

But if you have forgotten to order and need a cake in a hurry then certainly give us a call

(Note to our loyal Vulcan Lane customers - unfortunately the little hole in the wall is too hot for cakes during the warmer summer months so we can't offer pick up from Vulcan Lane for the next while - we have, however, reduced our delivery fee for the CBD to $10)

GLUTEN FREE

All cakes can be made gluten free ($5) - just select the gluten free option when adding your cake to the cart

(All of our cakes contain ground almonds)  

Please note, The Caker's kitchen is small, so the chance of cross-contamination occurring is present - if you have a severe gluten, egg, dairy or nut allergy, please make sure we are aware                                                                                    

                               

DECORATIONS

You can add fresh flowers and candles to your cake ($5-$12)

All cakes come decorated as per the menu image but we buy different flowers everyday, so our floral decorations won't look the same every time - if you do have any special requests, feel free to ask in the order notes when you proceed to the cart

We prefer not to write on cakes, but we do offer Happy Birthday cake toppers and a personalised gift card can be included, free of charge, with any order - please request a card in the order notes when you proceed to the cart
