When Marie Antoinette said, "Let them eat cake," she could not have imagined the masterpieces that would one day be available from Cakes by Renee. You don't just eat Cakes by Renee, you marvel at them, display them as the centre of attention, show them to your friends, photograph them, parade your guests past and finally, if you must, force yourself to cut into a piece of art and eat the cake. Actually, you'll be glad you did eat it – that's when the good times really start; these cake are absolutely delicious.

I was told this cake was named after me - but my name's not Bert!


Start your design by considering the simple things, think about the style of cake you would like, the desired shape, the colour scheme or base the design from your invitation, the event's venue, the bridesmaids' dresses, the wedding gown or just about anything else you love.

This Bugatti Veyron will go as fast as the real thing when you start eating it.


Your problem then will be to decide which of the delicious flavours to choose for your work of art. Here's a selection:

Chocolate – Rich, moist, chocolate mud cake layered and filled with a dark chocolate ganache. Always a popular flavour and milk chocolate can be used for kids parties.

Chocolate cakes baked in little terracotta pots with crushed cookies as dirt and Swiss meringue buttercream inside.


Chocolate with Salted Caramel Sauce - A rich chocolate cake with freshly made salted caramel sauce drizzled over the ganache layers of the cake.

Choc Mint – With its rich chocolate cake and minty whipped ganache filling, this cake makes a fitting finale to a special meal.

Jaffa – A classic flavour combo of chocolate and orange. You don't need to know what a 'Jaffa' is to enjoy this flavour. You just need to be a fan of chocolate and oranges!

White Chocolate – A cake with a delicate flavour, layered with white chocolate ganache just perfect for children and daytime events such as christenings.

Raspberry (or Mixed Berry) and White Chocolate – Fresh pureed berries gently folded into a white chocolate or chocolate mud cake makes for a wonderful alternative.

Orange and White Chocolate - Full of flavour from fresh orange juice and zest added to a white chocolate cake, this flavour is moist and rich with an added kick when paired with white chocolate ganache.

Citrus – Fresh, lively flavours of orange, lemon and lime make this combo ideal for spring and summer events.

Caramel – A subtle smooth caramel flavour, layered with white chocolate and/or milk chocolate ganache.

Just how nice a caramel mud cake with milk chocolate ganache can look.


Orange and Poppy Seed – A light cake with a citrus tang made using fresh orange puree and poppy seeds and layered with white chocolate ganache. Orange poppy seed is a wonderful cake to serve with coffee after a heavy meal.

Marble – For those that love white and dark chocolate mud but just can't make up their minds. Two delicious flavours for the price of one in a deliciously decadent cake.

This Sparkle Cake looks like a roll of Lifesavers when you cut into it.


Prices for these edible masterpieces start from $150 for a single tier right up to 4 tiers or more from $600.

Sculpted cakes start at $300 as they are more complex and invariably take a lot longer to complete.

Pricing is based on size and difficulty of the design, that is, the number of people to be served and the number of hours it will take to create. Therefore difficult cakes such as those with an unusual shape or that require a lot of fine piping or sugar flowers will be more expensive than a simple cake.

Delivery within 20 km of Brookwater is FREE and for further distances there is a minimum fee of $20 which also includes set up of the display at the venue.

Your Comment
The cot cake is clever, but like a lot of novelty cakes, I always feel that you are getting more royal icing that you are cake. I wouldn't want to eat them, but they do look magnificent.
