Hi there, I’m Mirjana and I call Melbourne, Australia home.
My love for baking and design was born as a young girl. I come from a Croatian and Serbian family that instilled in me the value of hard work and creating something beautiful from scratch, my earliest memories are of watching my Baka (grandmother) work as a cake decorator and my mother as a seamstress.
I went on to have a successful career working for Australian fashion houses such as Collette Dinnigan and Sass & Bide which gave me an appreciation for the design process and an eye for detail that I now apply to my first love - Baking!
All the cakes and delicacies that come from the Torte kitchen are lovingly hand crafted by me. I use the finest available ingredients like whole milk butter, free range eggs from my own chickens and honey harvested in my mother’s garden.
I appreciate that clients are looking for something personal to commemorate a special occasion which is why each cake is made to order by consultation.
I would love to work with you to create something beautiful and unique to share with family and friends.
