Hi Katie, tell us about yourself!

Well at Baked by Katie, you literally get me! I love creating fresh and tasty cakes for all occasions especially when celebrating love ❤. I’ve been baking and creating for 7 years here on the Mid North Coast and couldn’t think of a better place to do so!

What’s your baking specialty?

Honestly, I don’t have a specialty as I try to bake whatever I’m feeling – but if I had to choose, my favourite thing to make would be the White Chocolate & Raspberry Mud Cake… Loaded with raspberries and topped with a sour cream ganache buttercream – it’s a total package and full of flavour!

So wedding cakes! What’s your preferred style to bake and eat?

I love making cakes from the heart, so whenever it’s for a wedding I like to get an idea of what the couple are like and what flavours they enjoy! I personally want to make them as rustic as possible with beautiful touches of fresh florals and natural elements, with pops of colours to bring out the personality of the couple and so no two cakes are the same!

How long in advance should couples start working with wedding cake vendors?

It’s always a good idea to get in touch as soon as you have your date and idea set. I’m always happy to talk cake whenever needed and have even done it only a few weeks out from the date. At the end of the day it’s just cake, so I like to make this process as relaxed as possible so you can enjoy everything about your wedding day!

Can you create vegan, dairy-free or nut-free cakes?

Always happy to discuss options for already free cakes. I have a great range of gluten free and nut free cakes and i also like to include the vegan and dairy free versions if needed. These are always on the table so that everyone can enjoy cake… Nobody should miss out on having dessert!

We love supporting locals – tell us two or three of your fave local businesses and why?

As mentioned I love going as fresh and natural as possible so when I get the chance to, I love working with Sarah J Hudson Floral Design for my cake flowers and also I can’t go past Queen Bee Styling – Jacqui is amazing and works so wonderfully with every couple to create a magical day!
