My name is Caitlin and Im all about that CAKE!!
I haven’t always been in love with cake design. It really came out of the blue when my older sister suggested I move to Melbourne with her…WHY NOT right? But what was I going to do there?
My sister suggested a pastry chef apprenticeship as I would sometimes make cakes and sweet treats for friends birthdays or just for the hell of it.
I got an apprenticeship at a Greek Bakery just around the corner from where I was living. It was meant to be!
Its here that I discovered my love of all things sweet! While making delicious tarts and pastries all day was amazing, I really got excited every time my boss allowed me to help out with special occasion cakes.
After a couple years living in the big city and working endless hours, I made my way back home to Wagga Wagga where I got some casual work at a cafe.
Here I got to use my skills making different sweets for the cafe each week.
My housemate at the time asked me to make a cake for her sister birthday and from there I started getting cake orders on the regular.
I ended up getting a job at a Greek restaurant for a year and it was during this year that Sweet Bee grew which made me leave my full time work and spend all my time of cakes from home.
Im currently working full time at a Bakehouse and have stepped back from taking small cake orders and specialising in Wedding cakes.
My orders keep growing each week and I’m excited to eventually make Sweet Bee my full time job again and open my own shop!
Im forever learning new techniques and styles and with each cake I get the opportunity to create an edible artwork for your special occasion and the best part is hearing how much the customer enjoyed their cake.
So if your looking for a unique cake for your Wedding let me know how I can help!
