Food trucks are running riot on the streets of Brisbane! Every Friday, we take a look at one of your favourite trucks — this week, the spotlight falls on Cake Kiosk, baking and serving homemade fresh cakes out of a renovated caravan!

Owner/Chef: Jade Halloran.

Cuisine style: Homestyle baking, cakes, tarts, slices, biscuits etc.

Time in business: Two years.

What were you doing before you got your Food Truck? 

I was previously at Pearl Cafe and Jocelyns Provisions as a pastry chef. The caravan was a spontaneous eBay purchase and I winged the rest… CMF Projects did the fitout.

What’s the most popular item on your menu?

Berry and custard tea cake or my lamington cake.

What’s your favourite item on the menu?

Melting moments… I can’t stop at one!

Which suburb do you usually operate in?

You can usually find me at Powerhouse markets every second and fourth Saturday.

How do most people find out about your truck?

People can find out about me through Facebook and Instagram but a lot of my customers are regulars and spread the word of mouth.

Why do you think food trucks have become so popular?

I think food trucks are becoming more popular because it is less expensive than dining out, and people like to be outdoors, especially in Brisbane.

Favourite music to listen to in the truck?

My favourite music at markets is ’80s trash to sing along badly to… at home, it’s anything from Elvis to Melvins and everything in between.

Do you harbour any dreams of opening a brick-and-mortar restaurant?

I have always wanted an old school bakery cafe. My dream building in Greenslopes has just come up for sale, so Lotto gods, be good to me!

If your food truck was a Transformer, its name would be…

Retrocon.

Where can we find you over the next few weeks?

Cake Kiosk will be at the next Finders Keepers on November 8 and 9 at the Old Museum.
