Like any cake related business, Cake Decorating Central was born out of a love of cake by two sister-in-laws - Kylie Richards and Louise Davey.
Each of them brings a wealth of experience to the business, Louise is a 2nd generation cake decorator and Kylie has a management background as well as the love of a good challenge.
What has evolved over the 16 years of their business is a cake decorators support team: amazing staff who show their passion for all things caking and baking with the highest level of customer service and advice.
Similar to a good cake recipe, these two skill sets have helped the business to grow and rise to be well known in the Australian Retail Industry.
For a number of years, they dabbled in humble surroundings in a home based environment, supplying made to order cakes, hiring out cake tins, and teaching classes both at home and in a local hall before the realisation that this could "really be a goer" prompted them to seek more permanent premises. Now stores are proudly placed in both Castle Hill on Hoyle Avenue, and in Woodbine near Campbelltown on Harbord Road.
The last few years have been busy with expansion into the coordination of the decorating classes for the Cake Bake and Sweet Show in Sydney and Melbourne. This has fostered new working relationships with some of the most fabulous cake artists from both within Australia and from overseas as well. Many a laugh has been had late night while prepping for classes, and we have made not only new friends, but renewed old friendships too.
The Cake Kit of the Month program has gone from strength to strength too. We love working with Liz and the team at Australian Cake Decorating Network and we regularly sponsor their events including Cake Camp & Cake Crawl.
In 2018 our business grew to include an interstate store it the beautiful Melbourne suburb of Nunawading. Another fabulous team has been formed and we love seeing our customer base grow!
To all of you, from all of us at Cake Decorating Central, we hope you enjoy your cake decorating (and of course tasting!) journey, and we are proud to be even a small part of it with you.
