/ MY STORY
Firstly I am a mum to my beautiful 9 year old son.. and wife to my working husband (someone has to pay the bills).
Starting out my cake business was really by accident. I worked for many years as a project manager in the finance industry but during my maternity leave I re-ignited my passion for food and baking. Starting out small at home, my business quickly grew (with my first wedding cake featured in Sydney Brides and Cosmopolitan Brides) and I opened my first cake shop in Gladesville, Sydney in 2015.
My Gladesville shop quickly grew to be a highly regarded wedding and celebration cake business employing 7 staff and creating close to 1000 cakes a year. We partnered with a number of Sydney's premier wedding venues and were featured in various wedding publications and media including the front cover of Modern Wedding Magazine, featured shoots with Vera Wang and a stint on Channel 7's Morning Show.
Due to my fathers cancer diagnosis in 2017 my family moved back to be with my parents in Brisbane in late 2017. Family is very important to me, and after taking some quality time I just couldn't keep away from creating cake and so "Cake by Susanne" was born. Sadly my Fathers fight ended in May 2019.
Cake by Susanne is a specialist cake only business working from our private studio in North Lakes creating custom naked, buttercream and fondant cakes. All our cakes are lovingly baked fresh each week using premium ingredients. I decorate all our cakes fresh on the day and take a limited number of orders a week with no more than 2 weddings a weekend ensuring I create beautiful custom cakes just for you.
