Our story
Mali Bakes was founded by Patti Chimkire as a way to combine her love of baking with her love of colour and aesthetics.
Beginning in one of Melbourne's many lockdowns, Patti has sought a collaborative experience with her team in the creation of Mali Bakes cakes, working to share the joy of creativity and expression.
Bringing the vibrant colours of Thailand to Melbourne, Mali Bakes playfully infuses the two cities colours and artistic sensibilities. Mali, meaning jasmine in Thai, informs what is at the heart of Mali Bakes: cakes that recall the bliss, joy and warmth of childhood memories spent with loved ones and friends
We offer a small menu of the flavours that we love. Everything is made from scratch in our kitchen with delicious ingredients including Gippsland Jersey Butter, Organic flour from Wholegrain MillingBurd’s Farm free-range eggs, Callebaut chocolate and fresh local fruits from Berriworx Northside Fruit & Veg.

Wominjeka, Mali Bakes acknowledges the Wurundjeri people who are the Traditional Custodians of this Land That we are nourished and inspired by. We pay respect to the Elders both past and present of the Kulin Nation and extend that respect to all the indigenous poeple of this land.
