I'm Rachel, a self-taught baker (formerly a nurse) and mum to 2 of the hungriest kids you'll ever meet. After moving to the country, I found myself spending heaps of time in the kitchen. Somewhere along the line, I stumbled across doughnuts, and became hooked. 

In early 2016, we came across a 1959 Airstream caravan on the side of the road and bought it on the spot. after converting the caravan to a food grade kitchen, we sold doughnuts and coffee in akaroa during the Summer. These days my work is now more one-off and home-based, however i still make cakes and doughnuts to order around the banks Peninsula.


The food I create is inspired by classic flavours and what I grew up eating, as well as using what is growing in the garden (or in the paddock). one of my most favourite things to do is to teach kids how to cook.

I enjoy the creative process behind an idea or a brief, and set about turning it on its head- to create something original, out-of-the-box and visually delightful. If you'd like to talk - whether it be about recipe development, styling and photography, or doughnut and cake enquiries- Get in touch.
