Smashcakes by Kylene Lovat- Designed for Destruction
Once upon a time a little 8 year old girl had a big dream about a life filled with chocolate & today she's living it- follow the link to learn more about Smashcakes Queen Chocolatier, Kylene, founder of the SMASHCAKE business
Kylene’s chocolate story....
"At age 8 after watching Charlie & The Chcolate Factory, I made a promise to myself that I would create a career for myself surrounded by chocolate..
That same year (1980) my dream took off in my parents kitchen. I began dabbling with hand made chocolates created using a chocolate making show bag from the Sydney Royal Easter Show. The chocolate dream was fully ignited & since there’s been no turning back.
My first job when I left school was with The Hilton Sydney working in the dessert bar of the iconic Marketplace Restaurant -then followed by a chocolatiers dream job at Death By Chocolate -as kitchen team leader at Neutral Bay/ Bondi & NZ.
At age 20 I branched out with my first chocolate business Choc-elite making personalised chocolate bonbonierre for Sydney brides, advertising with Bride-to-Be magazine. It was here that I established a following & reputation as a chocolatier for my unique & customised hand made chocolate products.
Next came my business venture Freckles Hand Made Chocolates, where I was lucky enough to supply gourmet food establishments around the inner city & eastern suburbs of Sydney with my hand made chocolate products (my chocolate coconut ganache & gourmet crackles are still in demand with customers who were on the chocolate journey with me circa 2009!)
The SMASHCAKE®️ dream came about in 2009 when I saw an opportunity in the market for a world first online chocolate store exclusively selling chocolate pinata Smashcakes (#smashcake®️)
Ten years later the rest is sweet history & I feel like I’m one of the luckiest girls in the world going to work every day, doing something that I love so passionately.
I've had requests to train other Smashcake makers across Australia & the world & it's bought me much joy to also work in this area.
I'm proud to have been trusted to make Smashcakes for brands including Charlie & The Chocolate Factory- The Musical, Chupa Chups, Violet Crumble, The Iconic, Hyundai, MG Motors, The NBL, GWS Giants, Amo Ferragomo".
