What We Do

Making sure every child is celebrated

We work with agencies and charities to find children in the Waikato who may be experiencing hardship, neglect, abuse, serious illness or family violence.

Peppa Pig Cake

The Cake Detective then produces professional quality birthday cakes tailored just for them, so they still feel special and loved on their birthday.

Birthdays Celebrated

For the month of May The Cake Detective has been invited to join other incredible kiwi charities with the opportunity to earn a portion of $100,000.

All you need to do is download the One Good Kiwi App and swipe your tokens up for The Cake Detective. There is no catch, you are giving 10 tokens which can be swiped up to whichever charity has an impact on you.

It is a fun way of giving using a pool of funding from One New Zealand (Vodafone).

The cake is decorated at our kitchen (Sweetpea Parties) and is all boxed up ready to go
