Bespoke Cakes Online

Written by Margo Berryman

Bespoke Kitchen’s highly popular celebratory cakes, personalised gift boxes and catering services are now available for order online at www.bespokekitchen.nz

With vegan, gluten free and dairy free options available the cakes are baked fresh each day to order and delivered anywhere in the Southern Lakes.

“We use lovely, natural ingredients with lots of fresh lemon and orange juice to pack in the flavour and they taste wonderful,” says Rae. “Visually the cakes are very appealing – beautifully crafted and decorated with fresh flowers and dehydrated fruits, delicious both to look at and to eat. Both our bakers are amazing – one is a French patisserie chef.”

Michelle says baking cakes for birthdays, anniversaries and weddings has always been a significant part of the business.

“A lot of people choose our cakes as dessert for their weddings and birthdays. They can easily be served this way as they usually come with lemon curd, chocolate ganache or rich caramel making them lovely and moist. When served with yogurt or cream they are a totally delicious dessert.”

“We put a lot of love into our cakes and I am always conscious when making someone’s wedding cake that I want good energy to go into it. We deliver the cakes on the day and add fresh flowers, fruit or foliage decoration as the final flourish.”

Foodie gift boxes & Catering

Online orders for food gift boxed have also been popular.

“Families and parents overseas like to send something to their kids who they haven’t seen for over a year,” says Michelle. “Things like our home-made muesli, some organic All-Press coffee, local bread, biscotti and coffee vouchers all packed in a Bespoke Kitchen box and delivered to the door.”

Bespoke Kitchen caters for lunches, business morning and afternoon teas, corporate, film and private parties.

“Catering is ordered through the café and we have a menu showing a selection of what we can actually do,” says Rae. “We customise the food for each event so people can choose to have everything gluten free or vegan or a mix to ensure the perfect balance for their gathering. It is simple and easy to order and we organise everything quickly, efficiently and deliver to the required location.”
