Onehunga, Auckland Central

About Onehunga:

Onehunga is a suburb of Auckland, New Zealand, and home to the Port of Onehunga, the city's small port on Manukau Harbour. It is located eight kilometres south of the city centre, close to the Maungakiekie volcanic cone.

Onehunga is a residential and light-industrial suburb. In the surrounding area, there are about 1,000 commercial and industrial enterprises. According to the 2018 New Zealand census, Onehunga had a population of 11,772 people and 4,278 households.

While the suburb was mostly a working-class community for much of the 20th century, it has experienced some redevelopment since the 1990s. Many of the 1920s bungalows have recently been restored, and Dress Smart has re-energized the local economy.

Local Schools

Onehunga High School, One Tree Hill College, and Marcellin College are all local secondary schools. Onehunga Primary School, St Joseph's Catholic School, and Golden Grove School are among the local primary schools.

We doing Meet the Regulars different over the next few weeks. It’s time to Meet the Team behind Sweet & Me.

First up is the baby of the company - heidi_fungg

I first met Heidi at the French markets, she used to come almost every week for her cake and always left me with a smile. I offered her a place with the team because of her awesome personality. There is never a dull moment with this beautiful girl and she brings so much joy and laughter to our work space. Always grateful for her continuous efforts and witty comebacks.

Heidi’s role includes, preparing desserts for the cabinet, she helps with garnishing and serving desserts. When things gets hectic Heidi isn’t shy to step up and help with taking orders.

Her favourite dessert is definitely the pineapple pie. Her family also loves it to bits. “The flavour is so delicious and the combination of fresh pineapple and coconut Bert uses just makes the dessert taste so much more delicious!

Heidi enjoys baking the coconut bun. The work that goes into the buns is so much fun. “Although the technique of rolling the buns can be tiring, it pushes me to try harder every time. It also makes me know the hard work Bert does every week to prepare all these lovely desserts. The coconut buns also smell so good when they are straight out of the oven and that delicious scent fills the whole shop”

What’s the most exciting thing that has happened to you at the shop?
The most exciting thing was receiving my first tip! It was quite early in morning and I opened the shop with Bert. Paul walked in and kindly asked for some koko brownies and fudges. I'll be sure to be extra careful next time I serve him desserts!

When Heidi isn’t at the shop, she’s at university studying and attending lectures. She’s in her first year of studying engineering. University is such a different place to high school for sure.

She finds it super challenging but enjoying the process. During her spare time she likes to keep fit and healthy.

We ❤️ you Heidi and so happy you are part of our family!

Found the super cute #littlefreelibrary that greyt_things mentioned in her post yesterday. Alas, none of the books called to me, but I left one, anyway.

Quick outing for fun before work gets loco. And before our views disappear due to high density housing builds. As you see it’s a little chilly (no I don’t vape) #scruffy #beard #beardlife #gay #onehunga #auckland #chilly #breathe #views #cold ...

~Meet the Team~

This is Lizie tinyfijian
Lizie is the third musketeer - the other co owner and also one of my best friends - we sometimes get mistaken for being siblings☺️When I first decided to leave my full time job to pursue this dream of owning my own cake shop - Lizie said “ok you got this”- she didn’t worry about where the funds would come from or how this was going to happen, all she knew is that it ignited a fire in me and she was all for letting this fire shine bright like a diamond.

Lizie is the creative queen for the business and handles our social media and marketing. All our videos and graphics is created by her. You sometimes see her taking photos around the shop.

What’s a typical day for you?
I usually start with saying morning to the man upstairs, squeeze in a quick run/walk, then spend time in the scripture and then out the door to work. My work days vary, sometimes I’m out in the field filming and other times office based. I do enjoy the balance of both though!

Lizie isn’t much of a sweet tooth but her one time favourite dessert is the Pineapple Pie because it reminds her of her childhood.”I grew up eating my mums pineapple pie and I never get tired of those flavours”

What do you like baking?
I’m not much of a baker but ironically the only thing I can bake is pineapple pie 🙂 But ask me to cook and I can whip up a three course meal.

When not creating for Sweet and Me, Lizie is still creating but this time for Tikilounge in her full time job.She is a TV/Doco Producer and mainly works on the TV show Fresh (you can watch it 10am Saturdays on TV2 - yes shameless plug, why not) plus she enjoys making mini documentary series.

That is the full team at Sweet & Me.I love the the bond we have created here and I believe this reflects in the business and also the products we make.
