#AlmightyPeople Patti Chimkire of Mali Bakes

"I’d been interested in pursuing a business of my own for a while, but never really had the time or the drive"

Patti started baking cookies during lockdown as both a creative outlet and way to make some extra income. These cookies turned into cakes and these cakes became so popular Patti opened up a Mali Bakes shop in Thornbury, Melbourne and we are so glad she did! These are bespoke celebration cakes like no other. Read to learn more about the Mali Bakes story, Patti's life and how she finds balance.

"I like interesting flavours, flavours that have a background, that have a story that goes with them, a friendly face and come from all over the place."
