ITC was lucky enough to meet the talented Raleigh from the Cake Shack Sydney. Raeleigh’s story shows how you can take a hobby and make it into a business.
Raeleigh has a background in restaurants and cafes. She grew up watching her Aunt decorate cakes and was fascinated by it. Raeleigh moved to Sydney when she was 17 and met her husband while working at Lane Cove Coles. Not long after that she married Shawn ( a Lane Cove lifer).
While working with her husband and having children, Raeleigh started attending Planet Cake decorating courses. From these courses she realised that cake decorating was starting to become a passion.
Raeleigh now has a full time cake decorating business called The Cake Shack where she produces works of art. Each cake takes about three days to make. Raeleigh says it is the attention to details that matters. She loves it when a client comes up with a concept and then she can make this concept into a cake.
Many of her cakes are based on characters, but she loves it when she has allowed artistic licence.
Just check out some of her fabulous cakes below!!
So if you need a special occasion cake – you know who to contact.
