Magnolia Kitchen was started back in November 2011 and was born out of owner Bets’s love of baking, cake decorating and all things sweet, old fashioned and vintage.

Fast forward and our journey now sees Magnolia Kitchen calling Silverdale Village home, where we welcome you to visit us daily for an array of treats from the cabinet, shop our retail wall, grab a coffee and relax around our family style table enjoying the atmosphere and delicious smells permanently wafting from our kitchens.

Follow along our journey on Instagram where Bets gives insight into what it takes to be Magnolia Kitchen in all its glory (ups and downs included). Our reality is hard work but worth every grain of sugar.

Sharing our memories through inspired edible creations so you can experience memories through taste.

The Founder

I'm sure I am supposed to say something inspiring here about how I came to be referred to as "Founder". Would I truly be me though if I didnt instead throw around catch phrases like "winging it for life" or "successfully fucking up" or "flying by the seat of my pants".

This is me Founder and Owner of Magnolia Kitchen and Magnolia Kitchen Sweet Cafe, author of the best selling book Magnolia Kitchen - Inspired Baking with Personality. I am also a Wife, Mother to 3 adorably feral children and utterly untrained in everything. I am unashamedly and unapologetically authentic even if that means ruffling a few feathers along the way. I love baking and creating, food is my art and my canvas.

I am hugely proud of my journey and can not begin to thank those that have helped myself and the Magnolia Kitchen brand be what we are today enough.
