The Baker's Whisk owned and run by Emily Byrne, with a supportive Husband, Brent and a now caking addicted Sister Elisa. As a little girl growing up in England, Emily was happiest when in the kitchen. Be it cooking or baking, endless hours were spend here, so it was no surprise at age 14 when she decided to make the move towards being a chef. She started on this career path by working nights and weekends while still finishing school at the local pub as a sous chef.
Fate had a different plan in store and knee surgery meant that Emily had to give up this dream so when my family decided to emigrate to New Zealand in 2002 she enrolled in to Bachelor of Commerce and Administration at Victoria University, making Wellington her home.
Emily's career path has seen her gain experience in events and design as well as marketing, sponsorship and brand management. In 2009, she got engaged and decided to design and make her wedding cake (as well as a few other things for the wedding!). Since then she's been fulfilling her passion for baking with cakes, cupcakes and other sweet treats for friends, family and colleagues.
In 2012 The Baker's Whisk was created, a boutique bakehouse that creates a variety of cakes and sweet treats with everything from scratch with the finest quality ingredients. If you are after a unique and stunning creation which will be the talk of the party, a Baker's Whisk creation is it! So take some time out to explore our site and get in touch. We look forward to working with you!
OUR STUDIO & KITCHEN
We work out of a registered kitchen (with a Food Control Plan) situated on our residential property, located in Silverstream, Upper Hutt.
As we create and bake to order, we don't have cakes and sweet treats available to buy directly.
Visits to discuss your event, or collect your orders are by appointment only.
Having worked in the event industry for many years, Emily knows that it can be a challenge pulling all the key ingredients together to make your event go off without a hitch so here's a few key contacts she'd recommend to help you on your journey.
