About Us

Are you ready to bake the world a better place?

Our Story

Our story begins with Andrea, an award-winning baker and CWA (Country Women's Association) judge. However, Andrea's passion and vision extended far beyond her individual success. She wanted to create a platform that would revolutionise the world of local baking and empower both bakers and customers.

Motivated by the needs of local bakers and the desire to unveil the hidden talents within local baking communities, Andrea embarked on a journey to bring her vision to life. Thus, bakesale was born - a unique platform designed by a baker, for bakers.
