About Us

I think that a lot of us strive to be a little different in our approach when we can. Ultimately whether we want way-out or traditional, I think the most important thing is that you are comfortable with who you are dealing with and able to express what you really want in the cake that they deliver. I've been baking for over 30 years but started my formal food training just over 20 years ago and haven't stop learning new skills ever since. I started Tanner & Gates on moving to Sydney in 2009. I have an overriding passion for quality and attention to detail in everything that I am involved in in life and especially in the cakes that we produce.
I hope you like what you see.

It was great meeting you as well, finally in person after several emails. All we can say is THANK YOU! The cake EXCEEDED our expectations. It was STUNNING. Not only did we LOVE it, but so did our family and friends. It was one of the talking points of our ceremony. So personalised and individual, and equally as tasty ;-) ...
As you can tell by my rave reviews, the cake arrived in perfect order, and there were no hiccups with the unwrapping or anything. It was just PERFECT. You guys are GREAT!
Thank you again for doing an amazing job and we will be sure to recommend you guys if anyone else is looking for cakes!!!
Just wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know how much I enjoyed my ‘Bolli’ birthday cake. 
Not only did it look fabulous, every little bit of it was delicious and most enjoyed by the guests who all enquired as to where we had it made.
Hopefully it will translate into some word of mouth business for you.
A and I would have no hesitation in recommending your services and look forward to dealing with you again
We and all who attended the party were very happy with the cake. It was an immediate ice breaker for guests and tasted delicious
Hi Dean

It was wonderful! Everyone loved the cake and we’re still eating it! You did a wonderful job and I’ll definitely be recommending you. You’re so kind and professional.
All the best!

Hi Dean. Saturday went very well thanks, and the cake was a hit. It looked great, and tasted as good as it looked. Thanks again!
It was such an awesome cake!!!! Andy was totally surprised, and just loved it!!! And all the shooting stars with the covers were brilliant, he recognized all the album covers straight away and he said they were all his favourite tunes so that was a lovely touch that made it even more personal. All our friends were also really impressed. The cake not only looked fantastic, it also tasted amazing - Andy said it was one of the best chocolate cakes he has tried, and trust me he is a real chocoholic and he has tried more than a few!!
The figurine in the cake was perfect and everyone recognised that it was him straight away, the cake matched the design and all the party decorations perfectly. I honestly could not be happier with it - I am so glad I found your website on the internet.
I also just wanted to say that dealing with you has been a really positive experience, you came up with great suggestions and ideas, took all my comments on board and you were also very friendly and professional.
I will definitely come back to you for future events, and will also recommend you to any friend that wants a fantastic looking and delicious cake for their party. Thank you so much!
Sue and I wanted to write and thank you so much for our beautiful wedding cake, which was safely transported and delivered to Canberra by our friends in time for our Civil Union ceremony.
The cake was stunning – not only did it look gorgeous, but it tasted sensational as well!  We couldn’t have been happier with it – as well as so happy with your personal service and attention to detail.  We loved the fondant sculptures of us as the cake topper – we got lots of positive comments from our guests and have recommended you all over Canberra.
Thank you so much for your contribution to our very special day.  If we can do anything at all to help promote your business, please let us know – we would be only too happy to assist.

Kind regards and all the very best to you and your partner
The cake looked amazing! We will send some pictures soon.
We got our cake done at a Swiss cake shop and he loved the cake toppers and I think he wants to recommend you to others in Cairns.
The cake toppers where the stars of the night.  
They looked and tasted FANTASTIC.  We were even joking about the little smiley's on the sperms and the details on the four burner ovens. The birthday girl really loved them and so did we.
Forget the effort I went to, all I did was click on a website and ask a few questions - I think most of the thanks needs to go to YOU for all the creative flair and care that's been taken in producing the cakes.  Thank you so much again for taking the trouble to make such a small order for us.  I've attached some pics for you to see how they were presented. We'll definitely be ordering from you for all of our pastry needs I think - can't wait for the next occasion

We have received our cake toppers  today and they are awesome! We love them.
We can’t believe how much alike they are to us.
They are better than we imagined and I’m sure they will be the talk of the dinner.  We will take some pictures for you.
Thanks again

The cake was awesome – to look at and to eat ! My goodness, we received so many comments on how yummy the cake was !
