the caker’s new kitchen

Jordan Rondel’s revered sweet delights have now found themselves a permenant inner-city residence.

In just under two years, Jordan Rondel has garnered herself a reputation around Auckland as the queen of cakes. Not only are her delicious masterpieces the undeniable highlight of birthdays here in the Denizen offices, but they have also quickly found themselves as the treat of choice at almost every fashion event around town worth attending.

Needless to say we are now extremely excited to report that as of yesterday, Jordan’s cakes have found themselves a permanent home at Eight Thirty Coffee Roasters on K’Road. As a result of overwhelming demand, Jordan has shifted her cake making skills from her home into their commercial kitchen (with an oven capable of cooking eight cakes in 20 minutes). Her delicious cakes will still be available for made to order, but you can now also stop by to enjoy them by the slice too.

Jordan’s sweet treats have all the charm of grandma’s home baking – the kind that you rarely find when purchasing a cake. You needn’t bother ever having to get out the recipe book again. Each one is made with love using all organic ingredients and simple decorations such as fresh raspberries, dripping lemon curd icing and fresh flowers. We also must mention that the folk at EightThirty know how to make an exceptionally good cup of coffee, which is an all-important essential to accompany your chosen slice of delectable cake.
