Our Story

Our Story 

Karaka Kitchen was born in a small rural part of south Auckland a few months after the birth of our fourth child. Owned and operated by Melissa Mills, self taught baker. We opened Karaka’s first registered cake shop (online) in 2017. 

With the support of our local community and friends Karaka Kitchen has grown into a successful small online business. Specialising in gourmet cakes in delicious flavours using fruits to cut through the sweetness with everything made from scratch and no shortcuts taken. Open for pick ups Thursday, Friday and Saturdays. 

We also offer custom cookies which make great corporate gifts or wedding favours and can be shipped New Zealand wide. 

We create gourmet cheeseboards and dessert tables by appointment only, very limited availability.
