Emma's Cakes Co Judges Encouragement Award

18 Emmas Cakes Co_

I started doing this seven years ago when my eldest son was born. He developed an egg allergy before his first birthday. I wanted to be sure there were no traces of egg in his cakes.

So I began researching, collecting tools, and teaching myself how to master certain techniques.
After my second son was born and Covid changed everything, I realised I wanted to create more.

With the help of other bakers in my area to guide me, I got my Food Safety Supervisor Certificate, set up my ABN, business systems, and registered my kitchen with Logan Council. I am always so humbled to be asked to provide the centrepiece for your events. I know the significance of these occasions and I am forever grateful to be able to contribute to your special moments.
