Explore the possibilities at The Baking Patch!

Whether you desire a personalised dream cake or prefer to unleash your creativity at home, we've got you covered. Our services extend beyond baking; we provide all the essentials for your cake decorating needs, hold decorating courses and classes and can also host your child's cupcake decorating birthday party or team building event with your workmates. Additionally, we have custom edible image printing and various baking tins available to hire for your convenience.

  • โ€œA huge thank you to Alana for making my sons 4th birthday cake. By far the best cake I have ever bought!! The cake not only looked amazing, by far exceeding my expectations, but also tasted amazing too. Alana was so friendly, helpful & easy to communicate with, giving me many options/ideas that could work for me, & coming up with a plan that was exactly what I wanted. I highly recommend The Baking Patch & will most definitely be using her again in the futureโ€
