Hi, I’m Monica Mignone and I am the face behind Mignone (pronounced min-yo-ni) Cakes.
After a stint on Masterchef Australia in 2019 (where I made some questionable gravy but some great panna cotta), I realised there was nothing stopping me from chasing my cake dreams even if I didn’t win. Post elimination, I got back in the kitchen and taught myself how to make the best cakes possible.
What started as a small custom cake business in my tiny home kitchen in Melbourne has now become a cosy little cake shop in Kyneton. Mignone Cakes is a little shop run by me and supported by my husband (known by many as Mr Mignone Cakes) and wonderful Italian family. During the day, it is a space where you can come by to purchase cake by the slice, cupcakes and cookies, and by the afternoon, it is a space I use to bake and decorate my custom wedding and event cakes. Unlike big chains, nothing here is mass produced. Everything is made by hand and from scratch.
Mignone Cakes is an old-fashioned, small batch bakery with a modern twist. Whether it's a wedding cake for 200 guests, a box of cupcakes for your best friend or a cookie for the end of a long week, I've got you covered!
Let them eat cake!
