About Me

I’m a baker in my spare time with a strong focus on giving retro recipes a modern twist. I enjoy providing rustic, baked goods ‘like granny used to make’ for vintage/retro and pin-up themed events around Auckland.

I’m passionate about the retro lifestyle with a particular interest in 1940’s & 1950’s, I also love vintage vamp/goth styling. Learn more about how I got into this style in my unique retro flavour post.

I have a huge interest in reducing food wastage and environmental sustainability. I’m a mother to two free-range hens and use free range eggs in all my baking.

I won the reality TV show ‘Come Dine With Me New Zealand 2015’ and was also a runner-up in the ‘Miss Pinup New Zealand’ competition 2015′. I had a cake recipe published in an international cookbook for the Clandestine Cake Club. I also run the Facebook community page Miss Charlotte’s Caker’s which is a safe place to talk about everything foodie.

I create vintage style hair-styles and makeup at local events with The Beauty School Dropouts team and guest post on beauty for New Zealand fashion site FashioNZ.

 I’m all about fostering relationships with other great people. You’ll also find an encouraging community of supportive woman around me.
