Yes, we are based on Waiheke and we deliver the cake to your chosen venue; so no more relying on others to collect the cake and set it up for you! One less thing to worry about.
Contact Sweet Cakes (or have a New Zealand friend or relative do it for you) to make an initial inquiry. All the details can be arranged via email and if you have any pictures/ photos or ideas of your own, then please feel free to email them through and we will endeavour to create the wedding cake of your dreams.
To maintain quality, we limit the number of wedding cakes we produce. It is a good idea to make contact with us as soon as you have your wedding date and venue confirmed.

The majority of wedding cakes are now chocolate. The most popular flavour is our Chocolate Fudge Cake, which is decadently rich yet light; and it also has the added benefit of being gluten free!
Chocolate fudge (gluten free & the most popular by far), chocolate truffle, carrot & pineapple, lemon syrup or add gin!, vanilla, brandied fruit, banana, white chocolate mud or add passionfruit for that taste of the summer season! If you have another flavour in mind, maybe an old child-hood memory; let us know and I am sure we can make it!
No sorry. Sweet Cakes works from a commercial kitchen at the Onetangi Beach Apartments. We are not set-up as a cake shop and therefore do not produce cakes on a daily basis with the ability to have fresh samples on offer. Please do read our ‘Recommended by’ page and our ‘Testimonials’ page for positive and inspiring notes from some of our many happy customers.
