Miss Penny Cakes – Cake Shop Melbourne

misspennycakes.com.au

(03) 8383 9178

I’ve always loved baking since I was a little girl. For as long as I can remember, I’ve always found myself in the kitchen.

After many years of working in the family business, I never really got to explore my passion for baking. Baking was an after hours delight, where I baked for everyone- whenever there was a party, I would be baking, making all the cakes and desserts. After many years of making cakes for everyone, I got the reputation amongst family and friends as “Penny Cakes” (hence where I got my name from).

Having kids changed my life- add to these nieces and nephews, and all the parties that followed- it was the perfect opportunity able to practise my cake skills. Being a perfectionist made me want to make every cake for them better than the previous

one I had made for them.

Before I knew it I was getting asked by friends, then friends of friends to make their cakes for special occasions. Now 2 years later I’m busier than ever juggling my kids and my baking but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Having a Greek background I have always been around delicious cakes. I always love to try and make lots of different things, and to perfect everything that I make. I have a passion for it and I love learning something new everyday.

All my cakes are made with much love, the finest ingredients and sometimes some tears. I enjoy being part of peoples happy times in life and love the look on peoples faces when they see their cake arrive especially kid’s faces. I strive to make every cake unique for each person and to their taste. I also love baking with a Hellenic inspiration.

I enjoy baking healthy options for those who chose them, and my products range from bespoke cakes, mini treats and dessert buffets. I also supply wholesale and cafes, ranging from mini loaves, cakes, gluten-free and vegan cakes. I would love to help you create the cake of your dreams, so give me a call or email to have a chat about your next special function.

Monarch Cakes – Cake Shop Melbourne

monarchcakes.com.au

(03) 9534 2971

Monarch Cakes has been baking from the same recipes for over 80 years. Many of the recipes originated from the original shop in Poland and were brought to Australia and have been used here ever since. In the past, a cake was made from fresh, raw ingredients such as butter, flour, eggs, and sugar. Today many have sacrificed that old fashioned flavour in order to bake more quickly and cheaply. At Monarch Cakes we would never dream of doing that!

We bake the same way our grandmothers did, using the ingredients in their most natural form. Our cakes are made with the highest grade butter and sugar and we never use substitutes or premixes. This is evident in the way the cakes taste.

Most of the recipes come from Eastern Europe: Austria, Poland, Germany, Hungary, Slovakia, and a few more recent editions from the French.

Our Polish Cheesecake has been made the same way since the early 1920’s, and is recommended in a top Asian travel guide as one of the four best things to experience in Melbourne!

Monarch’s famous Chocolate Kooglhoupf might be unpronounceable to some, but it’s certainly loved by all who taste it. The counter tray of Chocolate Kooglhoupf has developed a cult status as it is devoured daily by a following of trendy St Kilda locals.

We at Monarch hope you enjoy our website and would love for you to drop in for a cake and coffee. Remember you can always order cake online too!

With 12+ years of experience in creating beautiful cakes, Miss Ladybird Cakes aims to make something that is both beautiful to look at and beautiful to taste. If you’d like to discuss your catering, dessert or designer cake needs, please don’t hesitate to get in touch!

“From as early as I can remember, I have spent my time creating things” – Gina (aka Miss Ladybird)

As a child, my mum kindly showed me the many ways of creating beautiful things out of nothing. Our room was always full of trinkets, paintings and objects, made from anything we could find. Living in the country was a great treasure trove of creativity.

This naturally led me to the kitchen, where creating sweets became like second nature, consuming most of my weekends before working at the local bakery at the age of 15.

I then went on to complete my studies as a qualified chef, working in award-winning restaurants in my home country of New Zealand. Hearing stories of London, Edinburgh and Melbourne from fellow chefs inspired me to travel.

I worked in Edinburgh, soaking up as much as I could from being in a larger city with so many different styles of food and cuisine right at my doorstep and travelling around Europe, eating, learning and consuming as much information as I could. I went from baking hundreds of scones inside the kitchens of Edinburgh Castle to learning management skills from one of the top hospitality groups. This formed relationships that led me to beautiful Melbourne.

Here, I worked at a reputable patisserie for one of the top restaurant groups in Melbourne, making tarts, eclairs and macaron’s, gaining as much experience as I could. I’ve always made sure that I experienced as much of the industry as possible, from silver service catering in Edinburgh, wine service in New Zealand, to café management in Melbourne. These are the makings of what I believe is the knowledge to successfully run my own business.

Those relationships I built so long ago while travelling led me to work for a highly reputable catering company. Running their pastry section, making the cakes for their cafés and supplying the canape sweets for Melbourne’s most elite functions.

During the 8 years of travelling and working, I was always making cakes for friends in my existent spare time. Weddings, events, and catering for family and friends. Cakes for everyone whenever I could. I think there is barely a week in well over a decade that I haven’t been in the kitchen baking. It’s all I do, and it’s all I’ve ever done.

I take great pride in my experience and am grateful for all the knowledge I have learnt from those I have worked with.

Miss Ladybird Cakes – the business:

This “small” business of ours has been running for 8 years now. During our time working in the wedding industry these past years, we have made valuable relationships with other Melbourne wedding suppliers; photographers, venues, florists, printers, to name a few. I believe this helps us to provide a high standard product for our clients. Whether it’s the logistics of accessing a venue to organising the flowers for decorating, we believe our clients are in good, experienced hands.

We love to use locally sourced produce and bake everything on site from scratch in our studio production kitchen in Mckinnon. We do not believe in pre-mixes. We take pride in creating a product which has been solely made by us, from the cake batter to the buttercream, to the jams, to the fruit essences.

“Our main aim is not to be the best, but to make a product we are proud of. A product which interprets the love we have for an industry we have spent our lives immersed in”.

We’re a boutique bakehouse specialising in a premium line of on-demand, made-to-order cakes and treats for all occasions. We’re 100% Australian-owned – by Melburnians, for Melburnians. 

“Connecting heritage with contemporary cake culture” – our motto and what inspired us to build this brand from the ground up. Click below to read more about the brand, as well as the journey that brought us to where we are today.

FROM HUMBLE BEGINNINGS.

Gula /ˈgoo-la/ 

noun “sugar” (Bahasa – Indonesian/Malay)

The name “Gula Gula” owes its name to the brand’s founders, who, above all else, share their connection through their ethnic heritage, as well as a passion for sweets and artistry. Interestingly enough, both founders are fully qualified professionals (one in Health, one in Finance) who, prior to this venture, grew up without a background in baking or hospitality! So how did they get here?

The journey of Gula Gula started out as a conversation about showcasing an infusion of elements influenced by heritage and the familiarity of contemporary cake culture. This sparked an idea that was ultimately conceived with the goal of achieving this result by incorporating the brand’s core design language – creating products that were clearly inspired by nature and art, all the while complemented by a curated range of traditional and classic flavours to match. 

As the concepts and ideas started to grow organically over time, so did the brand’s vision. Gula Gula has now evolved into something that essentially celebrates every creation produced as edible art forms. The founders have always had a firm belief that these creations weren’t made just to satisfy taste buds; the craftsmanship and professionalism that goes into each and every product and service should ultimately leave a lot to be admired and desired.

“CELEBRATING HERITAGE, ART, AND CAKE CULTURE.”

We pride ourselves on being able to offer our clients the ultimate flexibility in tailoring their product exactly the way they want it. From birthdays to baby showers, to wedding cakes for that one big day, we ensure that our clients will always receive an immaculate and equally delectable work of art for any occasion, precisely the way they’ve imagined it to be.

So now that you’re familiar with our story, we want you to be a part of it.

AT LAURENT, THESE ARE THE VALUES WE LIVE BY EVERY DAY.

QUALITY

Quality is our life, and without this, we are nothing. As a customer, it means you can come in time after time and get the same quality in our food, whether this is an old favourite or a new exploration. You’ll feel the same professionalism, warmth and welcoming ambience in all of our bakeries.

INNOVATION

For us, innovation is a way of looking at the world, of waking each day with a restless passion for being better while staying true to taste and integrity. For you as our customers, that means our desire to take you to new flavours and new specialties in the universe of French artisan baking.

AUTHENTICITY

Laurent has always been driven by love and respect for the craft of French artisan baking and exists as a homage to the values of a village bakery. When you taste our food, you can know that every part of this – from the finest ingredients to time-honoured rituals of preparation are authentic.

PASSION, OPPORTUNITY AND MELBOURNE’S LOVE AFFAIR WITH FRENCH BAKING

In a market where many new food trends are increasingly here today and gone tomorrow, it’s unusual for a food business to be celebrating 25 years of success. To find out more, I’m talking to Laurent Boillon, the man who started it all.

“When I first came to Australia, I was struck by the openness of the space, the clean air and thought almost immediately, and this was a great place to make good food. Baking was my craft and my love, but it was clear Australians back then really had no idea of traditional high-quality French baking. Still, I was confident that they would embrace this once they had a chance to experience it, and many had already done that on trips to France.”

In 1993 Laurent opened his first boutique bakery at the Como Centre in South Yarra, which is still there today. Behind every man is an extraordinary woman, and right from their first vision, his Australian wife Julie was also deeply involved, especially in creating the unique ambience that has become our trademark.

For the first time, Melbournians could savour the true tastes of French artisan baking without having to travel.

There were crusty golden loaves, slender baguettes crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside, a dizzying array of cakes, pastries, quiches and filled baguettes. All could be taken home to devour in private and or eaten in-store at little round tables on chic white chairs.

The young Laurent grew up in the south of France, in sunny Aix-en-Provence. After honing his craft at the prestigious Lenôtre school in Paris, he returned to his childhood dream and learned how to make bread. His speciality and first love was levain – sourdough allowed to rise naturally, made without added yeast, shortcuts or compromises.

“As the years went by, we developed recipes that were authentically French, but with a modern twist for Aussie appetites and over the journey, we have seen the Australian palate become much more sophisticated,” says Laurent.

While today Laurent is respected worldwide for the quality of its baking, our method, like our heart, remains steadfastly traditional.

OUR STORY

For many years, I baked as a hobby. My love for baking and all things creative was inspired by my Grandma Joan. She taught me all things baking and how to make the best birthday cakes! Grandma Joan was very nifty in the kitchen; she had a desire of creating all things sweet and embraced the handcrafted method of baking. I learnt her secret sponge cake recipe, along with other secrets which have inspired my wonderful cheesecake cups.

After baking cakes and cupcakes at home for many years, in 2017, I decided to build my flagship store at Stockland’s Point Cook Town Centre, Victoria. This was an amazing opportunity for me to respectfully showcase all those amazing desserts that my Grandma Joan had inspired me to create.

I am very thankful to our loyal customers, who provide support, guidance and the opportunity for my dessert business to continually grow and open new pop up locations in Melbourne. Our pop-up stores are uniquely Melbourne and we sell fabulous mini cupcakes in a variety of flavours.

I love baking, and I love having the opportunity to produce fresh-baked treats daily. I am very privileged to have partnerships with many corporate and wholesale clients including Bank of Melbourne, Crown Casino, Myer, NAB, Optus, Telstra and many more.

I look forward to the opportunity in sharing my experiences through my social networks. Please reach out if you would love some assistance in finding your dream cake, mini cupcakes, macarons, biscuits, corporate delights and wedding cakes!

FAQs

How long does a cake stay fresh?

A cake will only stay fresh for up to three or four days before the moisture is drawn out and the texture becomes drier. A cake can last in a fridge for a little bit longer if it has been frosted as the frosting keeps the moisture in the sponge. 

To keep its shape, put the cake in the fridge for 30 minutes in an airlock container or loosely cover to allow the icing to set. Then cover well in plastic wrap and put back it in an airlock container in the fridge.

Why is my cake texture gummy?

You want your batter to be well combined, but if your hand mixer or stand mixer is on too high, not only will your ingredients start to heat up, but it will mix too quickly, even ‘over mix’ your dough, which will give your cake that rough, gummy texture.

How can I tell if my cake is properly done?

Prick the cake with a wooden skewer. If it comes out with cakey bits still on it, the cake needs more time in the oven. Check back again and repeat in the net for 4 – 5 minutes.
