About the Author

Karla Goodwin

Karla Goodwin is the talented baker behind the boutique Auckland cake shop Bluebells Cakery. She learned her craft while living in London where she worked in one of the UK’s most prestigious cupcake bakeries, Primrose Bakery.

When she returned to New Zealand in 2011, Karla started selling at La Cigale, Auckland's French market, but soon opened her own cafe which quickly grew from opening just two days a week to a seven-day a week business. Her delicious, traditional recipes and eye for beautiful decoration and delightful presentation have earned her a growing reputation.


Praise for Bluebells Cakery

“Karla Goodwin opened the charming Bluebells Cakery in Auckland a couple of years ago after returning from London, where she learned her trade at the much-loved Hummingbird Bakery. She's since garnered quite a following and it's easy to see why - Karla has a talent for creating beautiful, edible works of art. This is her first cookbook and it's a winner, covering everything from the simple (gingerbread men) to the extravagent (four-tiered chocolate cherry pavlova). There's a very handy tips section as well as "how to" instructions with step-by-step photos for essentials such as lining a cake tin and filling a piping bag, through to more complex cake-decorating techniques. The tea parties chapter is quite lovely, with menus, setting-up tips and recipes for savoury tea treats such as caramelised onion and feta tartlets.”
