Owners Lennert & Rienna de Visser combined have over 35 years in the hospitality industry, in fact it’s what brought them together their love of food. Exquisite Cakes by Lennert was originally set-up as a wholesale operation for the restaurant and hotels in the Lower Hunter Valley area. It didn’t take long before a demand for their products spread to the retail market. To meet this demand Lennert & Rienna began selling macarons at the local markets in and around the Pokolbin area which provided an opportunity for people to discuss cooking techniques and flavours that they have tried. In April 2013, Exquisite Cakes by Lennert took over the premises that was occupied by Queen of Tarts thus giving them a retail presence for any and all to visit. Since it’s small beginnings with just Lennert in the kitchen the team has now expanded to include a full time Pastry Chef / Decorator and 2 apprentice pastry chefs, both of whom are studying at Hamilton TAFE. The team, led by Lennert, focuses on delivering exceptional product quality with high standards that are expected by some of their toughest clientele, YOU!
