Claire's Secret Kitchen - Our Story

The Secret’s out…

Welcome to Claire’s Secret Kitchen (CSK), a cherished cakery in Ponsonby, Auckland, where we have been crafting artisanal confections since 2011. Originally known as Amy’s Secret Kitchen, we changed to the ownership and creative direction of Claire, our passionate French-Kiwi pastry chef, at the start of 2023.

Claire’s journey with us began at Amy’s Secret Kitchen, where she honed her skills and developed a deep understanding of our values and vision. Her profound love for baking and dedication to spreading joy through each bite has brought a new level of creativity to CSK.

At Claire’s Secret Kitchen, we are committed to using only the finest ingredients to create exquisite cakes, cupcakes, and treats. Our offerings include elegantly decorated cakes for all occasions, a delightful selection of regular and bite-sized cupcakes, creamy fudge, personalised cookies, and more.

We believe in celebrating with everyone dear to us, including our furry friends, with a special assortment of dog-friendly pup cakes. Our passion, dedication, time-honoured recipes, and creative flair are reflected in every creation, making your celebrations truly memorable.

“Bringing Joy One Bite At a Time.” - Claire
