King of Cakes on Station Road in Nundah has been welcomed into the neighbourhood with open arms, literally. You will not leave empty handed.
Master pastry chef Wolfgang Kelke is the ‘King of Cakes’ himself, enticing locals with an exquisite cake cabinet and danish display. With two successful stores already open on the southside, Mr Kelke decided that Nundah was next on his list of suburbs to introduce to his “home away from home”.
The idea behind King of Cakes started 24 years ago with the aim of bringing a piece of Germany to Brisbane, driven by the enthusiasm of customers in the area. “The customers from the northside asked ‘why haven’t you got anything over here?’” Mr Kelke said.
“Finally we are where we wanted to be for a long time, in Nundah.” Mr Kelke said that it was a great opportunity to bring the café to Nundah, which has a German Lutheran settlement background.
Nundah King of Cakes is the first store that will be franchised; creating a great opportunity for pastry enthusiasts to “become a part of the King of Cakes family.”
Although King of Cakes is currently showcasing a new range of strudels, Mr Kelke said that his personal favourites are the black forest slice and the Esterhazy cake. King of Cakes will soon be inviting customers to join the Royal Cake Club, where points collected from purchases can be redeemed on products.
