Amazing Cakes by Sweet Treacle

Updated on May 4, 2015

Introducing Cake Maker, Tracy (Sweet Treacle)

I came across New Zealander Tracy in my extensive cake searches. She stood out to me as an extremely talented cake maker... one consistently above and beyond many I'd seen. She has made so many outstanding cakes... with detail on all of them that was just so so good... not a flaw to be seen! I honestly do not know how anyone can bring themselves to cut into them!!?

What really blew me away was to see all the wonderful cakes she'd made over the last few years all the while looking after and caring for her TRIPLETS!! :)

So I really wanted to make a page just to display many of her brilliant cakes... and she very kindly agreed. Tracy doesn't create cakes for selling... all her work is for friends and family... isn't that amazing? She's hoping perhaps though when the triplets are a little older she can look into having a cake business. I think she should... don't you? (New Zealanders... keep an eye out for her!)

The photo here is of Tracy on the special day she got to meet Debbie Brown during a special Cake Course (Tracy's on the right)

Her idol and biggest inspiration is Debbie Brown (see her books below). And she also credits her friends on FLICKR that give her endless inspiration and ideas.

I have to say... I think it takes true talent to be able to recreate designs to this level! Cake making definitely comes naturally to Tracy.

The Finding Nemo Cake Masterpiece! - Just look at it!! This is above and beyond!!

Tracey says this is her favourite cake she's made so far... and I can absolutely see why!!

Baby Cakes - Highlights of Tracey's Cakes made for Babies

This Blue Teddy cake was created by Tracy's daughter Dana who was only 10 at the time!! She entered it in the Kumeu show and got highly commended. Tracy was so proud!

Amazing Cakes for Boys or Girls!

One very happy pirate :)

This Rugrats Cake blows me away every time I look at it!! The Detail is amazing and look how good the characters look... just like the actual cartoon characters!! And did you notice the monster peaking around the back of the sofa? Tracy is just so so good!!

These three cakes were done for triplet boys turning 5. Each cake is done in each boys favourite colour! They are dark chocolate mud cakes about 4 inches high.

More Brilliant Girls Birthday Cakes

Tracey made this for one of her triplet's most recent birthdays. Isn't it wonderful!

It's ALL about the Cake Recipe Books!!

When I was young in Australia... it was ALL about the Women's Weekly Cake Books! Every kid I knew would go ga ga over the prospect of being able to pick a cake out of one of the brilliant cake books for their Mum to make! It made birthday's just so special! And for 30 years I thought the Women's Weekly cake books were IT!!... that is until I learned of all the books listed below!!! A cake makers library could be so extensive and wonderful... I reckon I'd spend all day just looking through them!

Absolutely Awesome Boys Birthday Cakes - although many of these could be used for either boy or girl!

So What do you think? Tracey is an impressive cake maker isn't she!?

      It looks like a fake testimonial was written using a photo of a cake you made.

      Amazing detail - Tracy should definitely start up a business selling these once her triplets are off to school!

      @deyanis: I know exactly what you mean... when I attempted a cake for my son's 1st birthday I did all the wrong things and gave up too. But I feel much more confident now thanks to all the wonderful Mum's on the web who graciously give tips and show how they do it. Of late I've made 2 dozen spiderman cupcakes, a spiderman cake and a dozen pretty pink cupcakes. I'm having fun!! :)

      Congratulations on your purple star, wow Tracey is an amazing cake maker. This lens showcases her beautiful cake creation and I'm afraid I can't choose my favorite. All of them are amazingly gorgeous.

      Tracey must be extremely passionate and talented, I once made a small frog fondant and after 1 hour, I gave up. :)

      @TeacherSerenia: I wish I had the chance to see more of NZ. I've been once now on a recent holiday and absolutely fell in love. We loved Auckland! If I lived there I'd be trying to find any excuse to travel around locally I think :) (which I try to do anyway here in Melbourne)

      OMG!!!! Tracey is incredible, and I can see why this lens got a purple star. Congratulations. Those cakes look phenomenal!!!

      Racking my brains trying to remember where Kumeu is - I am a kiwi and that name rings a bell. Now I remember. My Sister and BIL used to live out that way - it's west of Auckland. I haven't been there since my nephew was a baby, and he's 22 years old now.
