Based in Griffin, just north of Brisbane, I (Emma J) love making custom cakes for my customers. I use top quality ingredients and tried and tested recipes that ensure you have not only a gorgeous looking cake, but a deliciously tasting one as well.
I've always enjoyed baking, ever since I was a kid, and the baking side morphed into the decorating about 12 years ago. After decorating more and more for friends and family I decided to turn the hobby into a business and Emma J's Cakes was born.
I've been making custom cakes since 2012 and I'm looking forward to making many more into the future. Get in contact if you want more info on a custom cake for your next special event.
Whether you're looking for a wedding cake that is a bit out of the norm, simple and rustic, classically white, or something with a hidden twist, I can help you out. I love designing cakes with the happy couple to ensure it's a reflection of your wishes for your special day.
I can talk you through all the "cakey" details to ensure you understand what it is you're getting.
Hint: ignore any advice you receive about not mentioning it's for a wedding to avoid any "wedding tax" price increases. Cakes are priced individually depending on their level of difficulty/time, not on the event they're being served at. Definitely mention it's for your wedding so I can help you celebrate the momentous occasion!

A lighter option to a mud cake this beautifully moist chocolate cake is a winner with the kids and the adults too!
RICH FRUIT CAKE
Not just for the older generation, this classic favourite is packed to the brim with dried fruit, cherries and almonds (all soaked in brandy for that extra kick). This recipe has even been known to convert non fruit cake lovers. (Surcharge applies)

A light and dreamy cake which pairs beautifully with a citrus and white chocolate ganache
MARBLE MUD CAKE
Dark chocolate and white chocolate mud cakes swirled together for a ripple effect. For those times you just can’t decide which flavour to go for.

STICKY DATE CAKE
A delightful, dark cake with heaps of flavour. Pair it with a salted caramel swiss meringue buttercream for a taste explosion
ORANGE AND ALMOND CAKE
This dairy and gluten free recipe yields a lovely zesty flavour.
Note: Although the recipe is dairy / gluten free I am unable to guarantee that there are no traces of dairy / gluten in the finished product due to utensils and equipment not being used exclusively for dairy/gluten free cakes
