The Little Carousel has been around since early 2016, we were one of the first Children’s Party Styling and Hire businesses in Christchurch. We have had our fair share of cakes made in the last two years through a number of local cake makers.
We are so fortunate to have some of the most amazing talent in Christchurch, with so many cake makers around.
How can you be sure the one you are choosing is the right fit for you? Or is a recommended/reputable cake maker? Where do you event start by looking for the right cake maker?
That’s where we come in, this blog post will contain a collective of the best cake makers in Christchurch, as recommended by myself. This means, they are tried and true- to look good and taste good!
Each individual cake maker has their own special talent or niche, and I am so excited to share these with you!
You will also find that each cake maker that I have listed is a registered cake maker working out of a council registered kitchen. Their procedures and facilities are constantly monitored, meaning safe hygiene practises where your cakes and desserts are being prepared are paramount. This in turn, is reflected in the quality of their work as well as the pricing, their overheads are included meaning they can bring to you a product that is of high standard and aligned with legal practices.
I don’t know about you, but I am prepared to pay for quality, safety and trusted services!
Alright, let’s not beat around the bush…… Let’s get right to business…
First up we have:
Rebecca Jane Sugar Art
Rebecca is an absolute master of the kitchen. Her work is stunning, and tastes just as amazing. Rebecca can work with fondant, or a more natural look, and she loves to adorn her cakes with florals- especially her amazing “Sweet Blooms” which are her own edible flowers which can also be purchased in small little cartons for your own use.
Rebecca makes the most delicious and iconic cake donuts, delightfully decorated, as well as stamped or decorated cookies.
She also has a bit of a talent for hand-painted art on cakes on the odd special request, and has done some spectacular wedding cakes too!

Andi is a new on the caking scene of Christchurch starting up her little business mid way through 2018, and she has taken us by storm. Andi works with fresh ingredients, florals, naked cakes and the most bespoke little desserts you could ever imagine. You won’t see any fondant in her kitchen, and she prefers to make her colourings naturally without food colouring as well. She is fabulous at catering to dairy/gluten free desserts, and her cakes just look SO pretty.
You will see her at the Christchurch Farmers Market every Saturday morning, with her famous ginger crunch slice among many other delicious morsels, and she is usually a sell out!
Andi has whipped up a few edible dried flower sugar cookies, and custom edible flower lollipops for me as well before, is there anything she can’t do?!
