Margaret’s cake-making career began humbly, with her taking night classes at the Taieri High School. Her incredible baking abilities were quickly recognized, starting with family and friends, however she was soon making cakes for people all over the Taieri and Dunedin. Margaret has done Cakes ordered by clients from different parts of New Zealand for their sons and daughters studying at Otago University or Otago Polytechnic, plus orders received from Australia, England, Thailand, Germany, Sweden, and America.
We cater for all styles and tastes, no matter how large from a simple design to something fancy whether it is a small cake, Cakes For All Occasions can create it incorporating anything from one tier to 11 tiers. Whether yours is to be a modern design requiring a moist chocolate mud cake, carrot cake, or banana cake, or you want something more traditional, such as a fruit cake, Margaret will make a delicious cake to suit you, either for your wedding or another special occasion. Fruit cakes must be ordered at least 2-3 months before required to mature.
Margaret‘s fruit cake is a specialist using a recipe which was handed down by her late mother.
