Bunbury is in cake heaven as its first specialist cake baking and decorating store opened up a whole world just for food colouring.
Cake Works is a bakers heaven and a result of many years experience in retail and three years of planning for owner Maria Contrarino. The new store has already received many thank you’s for opening a service that was desperately needed in Bunbury.
Mrs Contrarino said she became familiar with a range of products available while working with her sister-in-law, known to customers as “big” Mara Contrarino, at House in the Stirling Centre.
The experience at House provided a valued knowledge of what people were wanting and people were always looking for something related to cake decorating. Customers will not be disappointed as a wall of cupcake papers, tins in every size and a range of aprons that featured in Sex and the City 2 are featured in the new store.
Seeing an opportunity in Bunbury where most people are from Perth or over east and are used to this kind of shop, Maria opened the store in November to a very welcoming set of open arms. Customers from as far away as England have called and placed an order.
To ease anyone daunted by the range of products available, Cake Works also offers cake decorating class.
