Hi, I'm Kara, the creator of 180 Cakes. My love of baking began in 2005 when I started my Chef Apprenticeship.
In 2017 I decided to create baked goods that wouldn’t have negative impacts on people’s health, that would be safe for people with diabetes and coeliacs disease and most importantly would taste delicious. It took me 7 months of experimentation just to create my first diabetic friendly cake mix because I refused to compromise on taste and quality.
180 Cakes is 100% Australian Owned and Made and source Australian ingredients first (such as almond meal) however some ingredients are not produced in Australia (such as xylitol). I continue to research my ingredients and improve my sugar free recipes as and when new information comes to light.
The name 180 Cakes
The name 180 Cakes comes from an exchange between Yvon Chouinard, founder of Patagonia, and Doug Tompkins, founder of North Face during the movie “180° South”.
“In response to people who say you can’t go back. Well, what happens when you get to the cliff? Do you take one step forward or do you make a 180 degree turn and take . . . one step forward? Which way are you going? Which is progress?” (Tompkins)
“The solution might be to turn around and take a forward step.” (Chouinard)
