Cake maker expands

Nutmeg Cakes and Cookies owner, Jenni Darwin, has moved into a commercial kitchen in Palm Court, Erina after operating from her home kitchen in Umina for the past six years.
A cake artist Mrs Darwin has worked throughout Europe, UK and Australia as a chef and caterer, from baking cakes and pastries in the French Alps to creating gourmet lunches for London’s top financiers.
Mrs Darwin said that the business has grown organically as friends who knew her cake making and decorating skills asked her to make and decorate celebration cakes for them.
“It just grew and then I promoted it using Facebook and other social media as well as attending wedding expos as well as working through venues and suppliers,” said Mrs Darwin.
She has featured at the Cake Bake and Sweets Show in Sydney in recent years.
“It is important to get the taste and look right using high quality natural ingredients,” she said.
The new premises will allow her to increase production and expand by selling and promoting through markets.
