The biggest thrill of MJ'S career so far was in June 2010 at the Auckland Fine foods and BIANZ bakery competition when MJ was asked to participate in a live cake decorating competition with celebrities.
MJ'S Cakes was operating through MJ's other business at that time which was Heavens Bakery & Cafe(Heavens Bakery's first franchise cafe).
MJ had two team mates Dan and Steve who are famous for creating the Huffer clothing label(they came in second place), Jay Jay Feeny(the edge)was teamed up with Sean from Loaf bakery in Auckland (Third place)and Alison Mau was teamed up with Rob from Rob's Patisserie in Ponsoby, Auckland and they took out first place with a gorgeous 4 tier heart cake.
Such a fun filled event that was organized by the wonderful team at Weston milling New Zealand.
