Meg's Story

Back in 2008 I set out on a mission to make my twins 1st birthday cake.  I was told by someone that because they were different sexes, I needed to make them separate cakes to celebrate their own identities.  I don’t remember who that was (and to be honest I’m not sure I want to) but it has always stuck and each year from then on I have completed the annual challenge of making two cakes for my children.  Since that day, despite the sweat, tears and a few swears I became hooked on cake making and continued to upskill with cake courses and online training.


In early 2013, I started MegR Cakes with the amazing support and encouragement from my family and friends. It was a dream come true and I was lucky to be able to open my first shop in New Lynn and work on a part time basis providing hand crafted celebration cakes to the public.  However, due to a change in circumstances I closed the shop in January 2016 and am now working full time from my registered kitchen in Pokeno.


I pride myself on providing the best quality work, not just look wise but tasting as well.   Being a self taught homebaker, it is really important to me to keep that home feeling which is why I always use the highest quality of NZ ingredients including free range eggs, organic milk/cream, Whittakers chocolate and Chelsea.


I absolutely love the challenge that each cake brings and have a huge amount of personal satisfaction when a cake is completed and delivered to the recipient.   


I definitely believe that dreams really do come true but you have to put in the hard work.

Thank you for your support.

"I have known Megan for over 10 years and I can tell you her talent and creativeness absolutely blows my mind and it continues to grow daily.  Her amazing work has been enjoyed on many family occasions along with an incredibile gravity defying nail polish cake that took centre stage at my 2nd shop opening.
Her cakes are not just cakes but pieces of art.  So much time and thought, love and hard work goes into creating something so very special.  You will never be disappointed with a cake from Megan."
