Marina Machado Cakes
Marina’s love affair with baking started at a young age. As a 12 year old she wrote a letter of complaint to the pastry chef of her favourite patisserie in her home town of Belo Horizonte, Brazil. She argued that the recipe change she’d accused him of hadn’t worked – that his subtle tweak of the hazelnut and dark chocolate mousse cake was flawed and demanded that he add more dark chocolate as there had previously been. Her obsession with cakes continues today.
Professionally, however, she started in fine dining. After studying cuisine at Le Cordon Bleu in London, Marina worked with some wonderful chefs including two Michelin-starred chef, Marcus Wareing. It wasn’t long before she found her way into one of London’s great pastry kitchens at the Mandarin Oriental in Knightsbridge, where she could bake all the beautiful, sweet things she dreamt of.
Marina puts her heart and soul into every creation. She would be delighted to work with you to design the cake of your dreams.
