We are very excited to let our valued customers know that we have successfully moved our cake making kitchen to Plimmerton with effect from 15 July 2024.

Our Online Shop and Custom Cake designs are all available and we continue to deliver cakes all over Wellington.  All cake pick ups will be at Plimmerton (15b Steyne Avenue) and the great news is that you will now be able to order cakes for pick up 7 days a week.  

Follow us on Instagram or Facebook to receive updates on progress and be in to win give away prizes as we progress towards our move!

Welcome to Cake Wellington

In 2023 we were invited to participate in the 10th Birthday celebration of Wellington’s Capital Magazine.

We were one of a group of seven cake makers in Wellington given the opportunity to make a ‘vintage’ style cake design to be featured in the special Birthday edition. 

Our red vintage retro, three tier heart shaped cake proved to be very popular and we were even invited to bake them another cake for their birthday party!!

Cake Wellington

Here at Cake Wellington we have a passion for making delicious and unique cakes just for you. Mother and daughter cake makers Cate and Natalie love to design and bake beautiful cakes for all your special occasions and sweet moments.

Cake Wellington has been providing sweet happiness to the lovely people of Newlands and to Wellingtonians far and wide for more than four years. We encourage people to call in person to see us at the shop, call on the phone or make an online purchase.

We also take orders from around the world and deliver to friends and family living in the Wellington area.

Celebrating 30 years, NZ House and Gardens commissioned Amanda at Small Acorns to style their front cover as a spectacular commemoration of their success.

Amanda invited us to provide a special cake for them to use as part of the styling and we were super happy to provide this beautiful cake along with fondant room setting on the top,  Super cute!

Vanilla Muffin

Freshly baked

All our sweet goodies are made to order and baked fresh with the highest quality ingredients. You can choose from a huge range of flavours and designs, from our famous moist chocolate cake to our decadently smooth American or Italian meringue buttercream – there is something for everyone. 

We have a wonderful range of cake flavours, buttercreams and fillings. The most popular is our beautiful moist chocolate cake that pairs beautifully with a chocolate buttercream although the vanilla buttercream filling looks amazing when the cake is sliced. Both go well with a raspberry fruit fllling added.  Our vanilla cake is gorgeous and pairs well with a vanilla buttercream and perhaps an added strawberry fruit filling.  We use this recipe to make the lemon and our very popular caramel swirl cake flavours.  Also popular are our Red Velvet and our Carrot Cakes which are both moist and luxurious and pair well with a lemon buttercream, perhaps with a lemon curd fruit filling added. And lastly in our standard range we offer a lovely homely banana cake that pairs incredibly well with a chocolate or caramel buttercream and perhaps an additional caramel filling layer.

To cater for dietary requirements we offer a beautiful vegan cake in vanilla chocolate or banana which people often comment that they could not tell it was vegan!.  We also offer Gluten Free cake in chocolate or vanilla.  Sadly we have not found a perfect recipe for a cake that is both vegan and gluten free but we are actively looking and testing recipes.

All our Online Shop cakes are available in all these flavours. 

If you are planning a wedding and wish to talk about special cake flavours we offer then send us an enquiry and we can arrange an appointment for a consultation.

How to order our cakes

You can make a quick online order from our Online Shop where you can find a cake for any celebrations at very cost effective prices.  You can browse the cake categories and choose a design. 

All designs can be bought in different sizes and you then choose your cake flavour and filling.  Next you can opt to add an additional fruit or creme filling,  Many of the cakes have colour options and some give you the option to add a fondant Happy Birthday plaque. Finally, tell us your message and we will put in on the top or on the board for you.

If you want a photo cake, these are available round or square. You will need to find and upload the photo you want on the top but once you have uploaded it with your order, we do the rest, including adding your message to the photo!

if you have a special occasion or a cake design or idea in mind, we can create a cake just for you. This custom cake design service enables you to buy a completely unique cake, We don’t copy other designers work but we invite you to send us images of cakes you like from all over the internet for us to use as inspiration,  We will design the cake and send you a quote to consider before you commit.  We can create almost any cake design you like but a custom cake does tend to take a lot longer to create and so the prices tend to be higher than the Online Shop

When cupcakes  or other treats take your sweet fancy you are in the right place! We have a great range of cupcakes to buy from the Online Shop. Check it out!

You can order  cakes and cupcakes from our online shop here or send us an online Enquiry Form to ask about a custom Create a Cake.

Visit our Shop or Cafe

We have been operating from our Kitchen/Shop in Newlands for over four years. Last year we opened up The Cake Cafe – Plimmerton as an outlet for our lovely cake products. Now, we have the opportunity to take up the space next to the cafe in Plimmerton and we are moving our operations there from 15 July 2024.

We will be at our shop in Newlands until 5 July 2024 where you can see our cake makers in action and chat to them about your cake requirements. The shop is open Tuesday through to Saturday lunchtime and there are cupcakes available to buy from the cabinet.

If you are over Plimmerton way, call in and see us, right next to the Station at 15b Steyne Avenue.  We specialise in selling our cake and cupcakes as well as a range of sweet treats and Kapiti Scoop Icecream.  We have a great lunch menu to eat in or take away and we serve wonderful Flight Thunderbolt coffee and delicious De Luxe Milkshakes.

Unfortunately we are currently unable take orders for cakes in our Shop or Cafe as the teams are usually super busy serving or decorating cakes.  If you would like a face to face appointment to discuss your cake, you can send a message through the contact form here

We aim to make the planning and designing of your celebration cake a fun and stress free experience.  We’d love to bake for your next birthday, celebration, event, special occasion or any sweet moment coming up.
