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 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 has now become a cake shop in Kyneton! Mignone Cakes is a little shop run by me and supported by my big 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 night it is a space I use to bake and decorate my custom wedding and event cake orders. Unlike big chains, nothing here is mass produced. Everything is made by hand and from scratch, just for you.
Mignone Cakes is a retro 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!
