On Saturday morning Simon and I headed along to check out ‘Amy’s Secret Kitchen’, a cakery that has recently opened in Ponsonby. We reckon word about this place is going to spread quickly; something as good as this can’t stay a ‘secret’ for long.
Located on Brown Street, the store is a short walk from Ponsonby Road. So, it’s close to all the shopping action but makes for a nice quiet break from the hustle and bustle, and you’ll be able to find a car park nearby!
The cakery is run by Amy (surprise!) and her sister, Charlotte, who are super friendly and inviting. They sell deliciously moist cupcakes, biscuits, slices and other moreish sweet treats. There’s also a range of iced teas on offer and they make milkshakes. Yum! We tried a range of their cupcakes, all of which were beautiful, but I definitely recommend you try one of the Caramel ones; the caramel filling in the centre won me over to become my fave.
Around the shop are some awesome gift ideas. They stock a range of 100% soy organic skull candles, kids apron sets, chefs hats and take home baking premixes in big jars. And, mans best friend need not miss out on the excitement either, also on offer are some pretty impressive looking doggy treats. What dog could resist some special biscuits or a gorgeous little pupcake? Cute huh?
Amy’s Secret Kitchen also do catering and take orders. So, make sure you go check them out in their new store. And, while you are waiting for a moment when you can pop along, you can find them on facebook, instagram, pinterest, or have a nosey around their website.
