Monica’s Cakes is a registered and council certified business servicing Goulburn and surrounds. Established as a home hobby in 2013, being a big sweet tooth myself, I quickly became addicted to anything that involved cake and dessert, so I started following my new found passion and created everything I wanted to so I could build up my skills and become a professional cake artist.
I am completely self taught, I learnt everything i know from YouTube tutorials, Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook groups and following some amazing cake artists and I did a lot of practice on family and friends events. I actually have no previous baking/cake experience, but am a qualified Chef with over 12 years experience in the Hospitality Industry.
I will always remember making my very first wedding cake for a lovely couple that had their wedding at my old workplace and from there I just fell in love with the wedding industry! I have now catered for about 60 weddings and have made about 900 hundred cakes.
In Early 2017 I took the courage to enter in both the Canberra and Goulburn shows cake decorating competitions. I didn’t place in the Canberra show, but got amazing feedback to help me next time. I placed second in the Goulburn show and from then on my confidence has just shot through the roof!
In May 2017 I officially registered my business and since then Monica’s Cakes has blown up into an awesome little biz pumping on average 10 -15 cakes a week plus many dessert orders and am now booked months in advance!
It was a massive and exciting first year in business and its made me fall more in love with everything I make and I hope to continue servicing the community and surrounds for years to come.
2018 was such a massive year for me as I finally got to create my own wedding cake and dessert table and it was the hardest thing trying to decide what to make for us after designing so many brides wedding cakes before my own!
It was so much fun and such an amazing experience for myself personally and professionally and something I will always look back on and cherish (if you look closely I have snuck some of our wedding cake/dessert pics throughout the website 🙂 )
I’m not sure what 2019 will bring but I do know I will be in my new kitchen and home and just hope to continue what I’m doing and create your dream cakes and desserts!
Monica’s Cakes will go the extra mile to create new designs according to your wishes, as well as offering basic buttercream or naked cakes if you prefer a more simple touch. My goal is to to provide a professional and exceptional service to ensure your special events run smoothly.
