About us

Our Story

Karaka kitchen was born in 2017 a few months after the birth of our 4th child. Owner, Melissa was passionate about “made from scratch” food and social media marketing and was encouraged by family and friends to turn her skills and passion into a business. Friends started paying for cakes and the feedback was amazing, being a new area there was a real need for some local businesses. The products sold themselves and flavour was a real focus.

Fast-forward nearly 7 years and the Karaka Kitchen family have moved 15 minutes down the road to a small lifestyle block on Batty Road, but continue servicing the entire Auckland region.

The company has expanded since 2018 and as of 2024 we are now offering Auckland wide cake delivery via The Flying Cakery, our sister company.

Our Name
