Hello I'm Tanya, the face behind T. With Cake!
From as young as I can remember I have always loved painting, drawing and creating anything with my bare hands. This obsession with making art and food led to the beginning of my journey with making cakes for family and friends at the age of 19 in 2014.
It was in 2015 when I had just completed a Veterinary Science degree when I decided to enroll in William Angliss and begin a course in Cookery and Patisserie. I fell in love with the dessert side of cookery and the creativity that comes with it. I decided to start my own cake creating at home whilst also working full time as a pastry chef.
After posting many photos on social media, I was quickly overwhelmed by the positive comments I received about my cakes. It was at the end of 2015 when I decided to begin my own adventure with cakes. I officially started T. With Cake as my own business whilst also working full-time. However, I was loving what I was doing so much that at 23 in 2017 I made a life-changing decision to go for it. I quit my job to focus 100% on my own cake creations.
And so, T. With Cake officially began. Cakes baked with care and creativity using seasonal, local ingredients. With a heavy focus on colour, nature, flowers and art each cake is uniquely designed - no two cakes are the same! It is just as important that they taste as great as they look and I take pride in creating everything all from scratch solely by me.
The philosophy of T. With Cake is a simple one. Make cakes that taste delicious and look stunning; Cakes of Art
