AFTER three years out of the cake industry, pastry cook, Travis Williams wanted to get back to his trade.
He and wife Nicole decided the opportunity to purchase the shop on the corner of Vaughan and Corio Streets, Shepparton was one not to be missed, and thus Cake Matters was born.
Cake Matters bakes on-site a wonderful selection of cheesecakes, mud cakes, sponges and specialty cakes.
They are also Shepparton’s only outlet for the world famous Dippin’ Dots ice cream.
“Since we opened in December, ice cream sales have exceeded our expectations. It’s so popular, not only for kids, but people of all ages,” Travis said.
“Feedback on our cakes has also been very positive and we are getting busier all the time.
“We proudly support local industry by using quality cream, cheese and butter from Tatura Milk.
“As we are not a franchise, we are able to choose the best local ingredients, but still keep our prices down. We won’t be beaten on price or quality.”
Cake Matters is also meeting the strong demand for gluten free cakes, which they have started baking and selling this week, and can provide larger sized cakes for birthdays and special occasions.
Travis and Nicole both add they are thrilled with how the shop has been received in the first three months, and encourage new customers to drop in. Cake Matters is situated on the corner of Vaughan and Corio Streets, Shepparton, or phone 5800 2892.
