I’m Minel, owner of Cakes by Minel, a luxury wedding & celebration cakes business, established since 2011.
I like spreading happiness through cake, be it vegetarian, vegan, gluten free or any other dietary requirement and I’m happy to personally hand deliver your cake.
Besides good quality ingredients, a lot of love goes into creating my cake art.
My speciality is creating bespoke & unique wedding cakes. These cakes are one off designs that can be adapted to suit your event.
Single mum to Shae (who is my biggest fan “as long as its chocolate cake, mummy!”), I’m a one woman band, self taught, still learning and still growing. I also offer online classes to teach these skills.
The idea of starting a cake business came after Shae’s 1st birthday. Like many mums, I created Shae’s 1st birthday cake, a 3d teddy bear, laying down! My friends were so impressed that they suggested I should do this as a business. And so a year later, after much practice, I gave up my financial advising career and began a very creative cake art business.
Besides vanilla & chocolate, some of my recent, unique, exotic and mouthwatering flavours have been:
Pistachio and rose
Gulab jamun (Indian sweet dessert)
Coconut & lime
Mango & passion fruit
Chocolate & bubblegum
Chocolate & beetroot
Fennel & raisins
Citrus & poppy seed
And I continue to create/experiment with different delicate flavours.
Sample tasting can be arranged.
I’m a strong believer in looking after our planet and aim to work as ethically as possible.
I give back to the community and am one of the many volunteer bakers for my local cafe in our local library. The proceeds from this cafe keeps the library funded.
My motto is “Be Kind”.
If you would like a beautiful looking and awesome tasting cake, then please get in touch.
