Soulful, earthy and seasonal baking.
Hayley McKee is a self-taught baker, cookbook author and owner of Sticky Fingers Bakery, established in 2010. She is passionate about creating sweets that taste of nature, where the ingredients are familiar, the colouring is genuine, and the flavours are unmasked. Her unique custom cakes are made with Australian native ingredients, vegetables, homegrown herbs and edible flowers.
Sticky Fingers, Green Thumb is her debut cookbook, available worldwide in March 2018. Almost sixty recipes celebrate vegetables, herbs and edible flowers in cakes and other sweet snacks. The book shares tips on how to harness their unique flavours, prep them for baking and even grow them yourself.
Hayley has had recipes and writing featured in both international and local press, including Vogue, frankie magazine, Peppermint, and Real Living. She's hosted unique dessert pop-up events and baked for the likes of The Australian Ballet, Romance Was Born, and Beci Orpin’s book Find and Keep. She made the cover of Epicure/GoodFood in 2016, ranked number 1 for Melbourne wedding cakes.
