It’s Understandable

Some recipe books aren’t. They tend to be dry and really hard to follow. Bets’ recipes reflect her vibrant attitude and are fun to follow and try for yourself.

She’s Amazing

Bets’ first book, Magnolia Kitchen, sold over 3,000 copies because her writing is informative, easy-to-follow, and always interesting.

Bernadette ‘Bets’ Gee:
Author, Baker, Artist

Bets and her partner, Abby, run the internationally famous Magnolia Kitchen in Silverdale Village. There the two create and sell sweet treats, amazing cake creations, baking accessories/tools, merch, and even gifts and books.

A true nature lover, their passion for showcasing the natural beauty of New Zealand’s flora is reflected in their beautiful décor and cake designs. Bets, in particular, has chronicled her passion and creative journey in her hugely successful book, Magnolia Kitchen.

Her sophomore effort is focused more on her unique and nature-inspired take on cake design. Both books offer not just great insight into her creative thinking and processes, they share some of her best recipes for you to try at home.
