Verlena Cakes provides pastries, cakes and pretty treats for sweet soirees throughout Perth. My focus is on creating customised works of art that are fresh, full of flavour and embody elegance and sophistication.
My mission is to provide Perth with delicious and beautiful specialty cakes and desserts for any occasion. I place a huge importance on creating cakes that taste just as lovely as they look. As a pastry chef I will only use real fruits and extracts, free range eggs and high quality coverture chocolate in all of my sweet treats. This attention to creating delicious sweets is a major point of difference when choosing Verlena Cakes as your cake supplier.
My cake designs also set Verlena Cakes apart, with a passion for thinking outside the box and working with my clients to create a visual centrepiece which is unique to them and their special day. Our delicate sugar flowers are all hand crafted and add uniqueness to the designs. I encourage creativity when it comes to designing your perfect cake. Specialty cakes can be delivered to Perth, surrounding suburbs and the South West if required.
I've always had a love for baking.
Growing up in the country I was one of those lucky kids who got to come home from school every day to fresh baked biscuits, still-warm bread with homemade jam or pikelets. Mum also encouraged my sister and I to bake from a young age - the favorite was the Women's Weekly number two chocolate cake for my Dad's lunchbox.
Leaving school I played with a couple of different career paths, but kept coming back to baking. In 2014 I finally found the courage to leave my office job and go back to school as a mature age student to study patisserie...and it was the greatest decision I ever made!
Fast forward a year and a half and Verlena Cakes now has a showroom in Claremont, a commercial kitchen in Canning Vale, and a whole heap of wonderful clients.
