I’m Paula, and I started Sweet Revenge over 7 years ago dissatisfied with corporate life, and wanting to make my own way in the world. Having a love for food and flavour it was an easy decision to start a cakery! I believe in using the best locally sourced sustainable ingredients, handling them with care and love so you get a fresh product that’s delicious to the last bite.

After a few years of using my family and friends as guinea pigs while I perfected my recipes, I was ready to start. Luckily, at the same time the Food Act was changed and home based businesses were a possibility. I was one of a few small home based businesses that acted as test cases for MPI, testing the new Food Act rules and their new Food Control Plans. After getting registered I haven’t looked back.

Sweet Revenge has done many things on its road to success; Custom Cakes, Weddings, Grazing Tables & Platters, Catering, Cakes and all things baked and has ended up with a stall at Riverside Market, in the Christchurch CBD. We sell slices of cakes, cream puffs, truffles, confectionery and a gluten free range growing in popularity. One thing is for sure, our treats are generous, flavoursome and memorable!

 We may have started out as just one person, but now there is a small team dedicated to providing and serving you delicious treats, either at Riverside Market or from our registered residential kitchen in Redwood.

For the time being Riverside Market is closed as we as a nation get a handle on the spread of covid-19, but when it is safe to reopen, we will be there with all the old favourite treats and a few new ones! While we are in Level 3 we will offer a limited delivery service and contactless collection, so you don’t have to miss out on your Sweet Revenge fix! 


Behind the scenes at Sweet Revenge

We are a small team of five at Sweet Revenge; working from either our Kitchen Bakery, or from our beloved stall at Riverside Market - and fulfilling our pick-up and delivery options via our online store.

We are here to keep your sugar levels up and are super excited that we can get food to the people!

Amellia & Paula will be in the kitchen, having fun creating your goodies. We will also be your delivery angels.

Jim will be serving you at Riverside Market.

Ruchika also serves you at the Riverside Market, and runs our social media; creating some fun promotions for you all to take part in. 

She will largely be the person replying to your Facebook & Insta questions or comments. 

Krizia will be serving you at Riverside Market.


Alert Level 1 means that we are able to have our physical store at Riverside open again! Yay! We are keeping our online store open too - which means we can deliver your dose of YUMMM to your door! This means we will still be busy baking your treats from the normal location - we will deliver it to your door, or you can come pick up from our Redwood bakery location once you have submitted your order online. At our Riverside location, we will have a great selection of slices, cake slices, and old and new sweet treats for your instant dose of deliciousness!
