I moved to Wakefield in Nelson one and a half years ago with my husband Grant and son Tommy. We reluctantly left behind our daughter and grand-kids in the North Island seeking a more relaxed life with less stress!

I’ve always had a passion for baking and cake decorating, as well as having a sweet tooth! I love practicing on my family and friends with my ideas and experimenting with new recipes. I really enjoy making beautiful tasting cakes and seeing the smile on people’s faces when they eat them. My focus is always on taste, and using the best, real ingredients.

It has been my dream to open my own little shop, so when we moved to Wakefield, it seemed like the perfect opportunity, and Sweetbites Wakefield was born! We really love our community, and everyone has made us feel so welcome. We miss our friends and family in the North Island, but we have already made lifelong friends here in Nelson.

Come into our newly painted red and white shop and you will likely see me (who does all the baking), hubby or our son who loves to help out behind the counter. Our dog Brandy also loves to say a cheeky hello sometimes! But we know she’s just looking for the dog friendly ice-cream that we serve.
