About Stiletto Studio Cakes

The Biz

Stiletto Studio Cakes started baking in 2010, and 14 years on we're one of the longest running cakes shops in Wellington!

People often ask how we started, and the answer is - by accident! I (Becs) started out doing cake pops and themed parties, someone asked me if I thought I could make cakes and I said yes,  and they were my first customer! Everything since then is history. Lots of hard work, lots of luck, (a couple of recessions, a global pandemic, and a couple of kids) and lots of returning and wonderful customers, for which we're very grateful!

Fun facts

  • The name came from a blog that originally had nothing to do with cakes but was actually about my love of shoes (and baking)!

  • We have officially made over 1000 wedding cakes! And estimate close to 6000 celebration cakes over the years

  • We operate out of a fully registered commercial kitchen in the downstairs of my house. My staff can often hear my kids squealing

  •  We affectionately call our cake car "Stu" because the "Stiletto Studio" sign has peeled off so much that "Stu" is all that remains! (yes, we're getting it fixed, eventually!!)

Meet Becs – owner, founder & cake lover

Hey I'm Becs! I'm so glad you've wandered into my little land of cake!

2024 marks my 14th year of making cakes in my adopted home town of Wellington NZ, and you'll find me here with my husband Matt, my not so little boys Sebby and Benny, and probably edible glitter on my face for many years to come.

When I'm not in the kitchen (which let's be honest - isn't often!) you'll find me drinking tea, shopping at Kmart, organising another area of my house (sorry Matt!) or enjoying the heck out of some sunshine.

A little bit about me:

Favourite cake flavour - Hard decision, but white raspberry is the one I always sneak from the scrap bowl!
Favourite cake design - Anything 3D! Or ganache painted flowers
Favourite drink - TEA! Always (followed closely by wine)
Favourite food - Toast (boring, but can't beat it!) or roast chicken
Favourite colour - I think that's pretty obvious from our website, haha!
Least favourite thing - SPIDERS
My first job was - In a video store!
My secret talent is - making up random songs on the spot 
If I could describe myself in one word it would be - tired (lol) or determined
Favourite thing about this job - getting to see peoples faces when they pick up their cakes! and scraps, obviously

Get in touch and say hello - I'd love to chat cake (or Kmart!) with you xxx

"Becs did our wedding cake. Omg it was spectacular. And so yummy! I was hoping for leftovers but no- the guests ate the lot!" ~ Catherine
