Our Story

"It's not just a cake, it's a creation."

- Banker2baker - 

Banker2baker is a privately-owned limited liability corporation specializing in custom wedding cakes and desserts. Tradition and passion are what drives our creations. From just being a part time passion, it flourished into a full-fledged enterprise through our desire to share our cake artistry with the Malaysian public.


Banker2baker was founded by Zulkiflee Mawan back in 2016. Zulkiflee was a banker at Bank Negara Malaysia for 25 years. At 50 years of age he'd had enough of the corporate life and set his sights to pursue entrepeneurship. He opted for early retirement and never looked back. With no background in baking or culinary, he settled on a baking business. He set out to gain knowledge in all things cake at international and local cake artistry centres and culinary centres around the world such as the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu, and Le Notre, in Paris, and the International Centre of Cake Artistry in Kuala Lumpur. Keen to further enhance his cake designs, he pursued the art of sugar flower making. He went on to learn with renowned sugar flower artists such as Winifred Kriste Cakes in Singapore and Naomi Yamamoto in Japan.

Banker2baker has since grown and now consists of a core team of passionate cake artists.

We have also successfully established our first team in London!


Our cakes have graced high profile events of royalties, politicians, socialites, and celebrities alike.
