Paper & Poppies started out as a fun hobby whilst I was studying Business and Teaching at university. Soon after this passion started to take over from my work and in 2009 I decided to take this business a bit more seriously. After working for a few years doing market stalls weekends and juggling cakes and cupcakes in our apartment I decided to open a shopfront in 2013. Our Woolooware Tea and Cake Shoppe grew rapidly into a community favourite and my husband Ross jumped on board to help with the workload. We baked 1000s and 1000s of cakes, cupcakes and other sweet treats during our 6 years at this shop. We were completely blessed by our amazing customers, staff and the continued success we had. After having our first child Leo in 2018 and another child on its way in 2020 we decided to take a break from the demands of a shopfront to enjoy our growing family. We now run our cake and cupcake business from our home based cake studio in the Sutherland Shire, still bringing you our delicious treats!
