About Us


My name is Sandra Boston and I’m the owner and founder of Kiwicakes. While pregnant with my second child in 2006, I created Kiwicakes to allow me to work part-time from home. I had a passion for cake decorating and in New Zealand at the time it was difficult to source cake decorating supplies.

Fast forward through the years, Kiwicakes now employs four people and we operate our store at 29 Vine Street, Whangārei. We are the NZ distributor of many international brands for amateur and professional cake decorators.


I am a trained Wilton Method instructor and love teaching students the art of cake decorating. I enjoy making cakes for my children and family and have created some special cakes for collaborations with other national cake decorators.

At Kiwicakes we are constantly on the lookout for new products and are proud to bring you the newest and latest finds in the world of cake decorating. We have a passion for kiwiana. 

We have scoured the world for our product range. We regularly import from Australia, UK and USA. In some cases, if we couldn’t find it we’ve had it custom made.

We are particularly proud of our custom Kiwiana silicone moulds, Kiwiana acrylic toppers and our sprinkle medley range (hand-mixed in our commercial kitchen).

We support SPCA Whangārei as our chosen charity.



Kiwicakes is like part of my cake family! Sandra and her team are always super helpful and quick at getting my orders out to me. If there is something I need and they don’t have they will source it for me. Sandra is awesome when needing advice on what products to use on those special cake projects. I can not recommend Kiwicakes enough

As a fulltime cake business I would not shop anywhere else - Kiwicakes has a great variety of stock - keeps up to date with the latest trends in Caking and is always there should you have a question or need  “how to” help. Customer service is something I pride myself on and expect my suppliers to also value - Kiwicakes lives up to this expectation and then some!  Knowledgeable staff - trusted quality and extremely helpful - ticks all my boxes for sure!

“I have been shopping with Kiwicakes for many years now. I really love dealing with Sandra, Grandma Kiwicakes and all the team. Kiwicakes core family values, customer service and fantastic product range is why I keep going back.

Sandra and her team are always helpful, my orders always arrive perfectly packaged and promptly. I purchase nearly all of my cake supplies from Kiwicakes fantastic online store and I always know that I will get the very best quality.

They are my one stop shop and I recommend Kiwicakes to each and everyone of my students and cake friends because I know they can get everything they need and that they will always get looked after the way I always have been. I truly love Kiwicakes!”

“From the very beginning, years ago, when I first started cake decorating Kiwicakes has been right there with me, supplying products to ensure every cake I made was as successful as I could make it be. Their vast selection of quality products ensures I have been able to create whatever design or effect I have needed to for the sweet treat at family or clients special event.

They are beyond helpful with advice on products, always without pressure, and are exceptionally fast with processing orders. I particularly love that they are always on target with new trends and keep me informed and educated with their social media posts.

Their selection of exclusive Kiwicake’s moulds, sprinkles and specialty sprinkle medleys are second to none and are superb quality. You really can’t go wrong with a company like this for everything you need in cake decorating.”
