A LITTLE INSIDE INFORMATION
I loved baking and making desserts from a young age, so it’s not surprising that I decided to quit my secure well paying job in 2013, and follow my dream of doing what I love, which is baking delicious, eye-catching cakes and making delectable desserts. During this year my main focus was on up-skilling myself by attending various courses….this is something that is ongoing because there’s always something new and exciting to learn.
In 2014 my home premises were inspected and approved by the Department of Environmental Health and I started trading as Bakes To Go. In July that year I joined Something Special Co-op Home Industry shop as a co-owner and supplier. My cake lines were vanilla with choc fudge icing, orange with butter cream icing, carrot pecan rings with cream cheese icing, deep dish milk tarts, peppermint fridge tarts, self saucing chocolate puddings, chocolate slabs and Christmas cakes. During this time I grew and gained valuable experience.
As this progressed, I decided to take things to the next level, and registered Berni’s Bakes & Bites (Pty) Ltd in December 2016.
We currently specialize in custom made special occasion cakes and cupcakes, from baby reveal, to smash, to birthday.
We are now expanding to include :-
- childrens parties
- sweet platters
