After 25 years in corporate and a significant life experience, I decided I’d follow my passion – making beautiful cakes and desserts. Two years into the industry, I haven’t looked back and am loving it!

I’ve always loved entertaining and making things that not only taste delicious but also look beautiful. Being always the one asked to ‘bring dessert’ – I started experimenting and developed a passion for baking. I delight in seeing and hearing people are happy, enjoying eating all the things I created. The best compliment is being referred to as a ‘cake magician’! Whilst I had been cooking for many years inspired by my grandmother, I developed my Patisserie skills further by completing a certification with Le Cordon Bleu Cooking School, so I could deliver the best for my customers.

I look forward to baking up a storm and work my cake magic for you!

Frequently Asked Questions

What size cakes do you make?
My smallest is a 4inch (round only) but usually it is a 6 inch (15cm) and the largest I make is a 12inch (30cm) I also do double height of any size and can do both square and round.
How many people feed per cake?
It does depend on the size of the slice by typically 6inch (15cm) 6 to 8 people, 8inch (20cm) 10 – 12 people, 10inch (25cm) 18-20 people, 12 inch (30cm) 25-35 people.
Can you create characters to add to the top of my cake?
Absolutely, if it is not something I have done before I may need a bit more notice in order to do research. 95% of my cake toppers I had never done before, and always keen to learn to do different things.
What is the difference between buttercream and fondant?
Buttercream is butter, icing sugar milk and flavouring, which is usually vanilla, but I will do chocolate, coffee and lime, which goes on my lemon lime cake. Fondant is rollable icing. Both Buttercream (other than chocolate and coffee) can be coloured any colour, so too can fondant.
What is the difference between a sponge and a buttercake?
A true sponge is very light cake and usually served with jam and cream inside with a dusting of icing sugar on top. A butter cake is a cake based on creaming butter and sugar together. Buttercake has more substance to it and thus can carry more weight on the top. A true sponge is not strong enough.
How much notice do I need to give you to make my cake?
Ideally 7 days but if it is a detailed and complicated cake, the more time the better, especially when there is a lot of fondant work as this is very time consuming and I need to schedule my work throughout the week(s).
Do you deliver?

Yes I deliver to Southern Highlands, however I will deliver further but is subjected to the delivery fee being more.

We were absolutely delighted with the multilayered, lemony syrupy, beautifully decorated birthday cake, including the edible lotus flower! It got rave reviews from all the guests, including several who are very good cooks, and quite a few had more than one slice!

Alyssa exceeded my expectations! I shared sample cake designs with her, and after a thoughtful phone conversation, she brilliantly tailored the perfect 'Emily in Paris' themed cake within my budget. Alyssa's friendly and approachable nature made the process delightful. The final result was not only executed to perfection but also became a crowd-pleaser. I wholeheartedly recommend Alyssa for her exceptional talent and customer-centric approach!

Superb! Alyssa created a work of art for my wife’s birthday. Lemon drizzle with dark chocolate icing and fondant lettering. Looked great, tasted wonderful.

A beautiful cake for a gorgeous birthday girl! Many thanks to Alyssa's Kitchen for providing great communication, a fabulously designed & visually pleasing masterpiece and most importantly a delicious cake! We look forward to working with Alyssa again soon!
Kate Dance
At very short notice Alyssa made a wedding cake for my son and daughter-in-law's wedding. In addition to the short notice I wanted one tier to be Vegan and the second tier to be Red Velvet.From start to finish nothing was a problem. Alyssa was happy to discuss options with me, communicated regularly and delivered on what was discussed. Alyssa liaised with the florist and collected the fresh flowers for the cake and then delivered the cake to the venue.The cake itself was delicious, particularly the vanilla vegan tier which even the non vegan guests enjoyed.I am happy to recommend Alyssa's Kitchen to anyone looking for a wedding cake supplier.
Carol C
Incredible gluten free cake, 100% satisfied thank you very much Alyssa! Double stack choccy gf mudcake was so tasty and made 32 serves pretty easily with left overs. I would recommend getting in touch with Alyssa as soon as you can so she can give you the best price for your cake. I was only able to get in touch with her a few short days before my event and she was already very busy, which meant a bit of a higher price than she would have needed to charge ordinarily but it was definitely worth it.
Phil Moy
I got in touch with Alyssa after a long winded and tiring search to find a bakery confident enough and with the credentials to give me confidence in the making of a Panqueque Naranja, orange Chilean layer cake, with 16 eggs an a very complicated process.Alyssa showed the highest level of professionalism and assistance throughout the entire process.Would absolutely use again. Thanks Alyssa.
Angus Laidler

Mackenzie Moores-Sipos
With very short notice, Alyssa was able to make a dairy-free cake for my parents 40th wedding anniversary. She worked within my budget and nailed the brief of a naked chocolate cake decorated with pastel flowers. Alyssa was lovely to deal with and the whole process was very easy from start to finish. Would highly recommend, especially if you have special dietary requirements.

María Crstina Ginestra Branger
5 weeks after the event, people are still talking about the cake……..I approached Alyssa with a grand idea for a themed birthday cake but had not considered the amount of work involved. This meant it was over my budget. Prices of Alyssa’s cakes are indicative of the level of the incredible work needed and the price was very fair.Alyssa was amazing, we had several conversations of how we could achieve the idea for the budget I had and came up with an amazing cake!She was very patient and suggested things I would never have thought of and I ended up with the most amazing cake. Everybody loved it and it was totally delicious.I would 100% use Alyssa again and highly recommend her to anyone looking for a really special cake.
Danny Scotting
We ordered an Avengers themed cake from Alyssa for our son’s 5th birthday and we got more than what we expected. All the guests enjoyed the cake which was beautifully made.

Alyssa is the consummate professional and we have enjoyed a few of Alyssa's extraordinary cakes and patisseries. We didn't want anyone else except Alyssa to create our bespoke wedding cake in our initials A & K. It was exactly what we wanted and Alyssa brought our vision to life. And the guests thoroughly enjoyed it as we had none left over! Thanks you Alyssa!

I Ordered a white chocolate mudcake with a custom message to thank some colleagues at work, it was wonderfull!Generally I find white chocolate a little rich but this was just perfect! Thank you Alyssa! I cannot wait until I have an excuse to order another cake!
James lee
After several fruitless attempts with local bakeries/patisseries to order a chocolate mousse cake, it was Alyssa who replied “can do”. The result was perfect and executed at reasonably short notice. It was thumbs up all round from our cake eating family.Sad to see Alyssa is moving soon - the northern beaches loss is the southern highlands gain- Mark from Collaroy
