Blissful Inspirations - Cakes & Sweets
I have a passion for cake decorating and art! So when ever I get the opportunity to combine the two I'm in my element
Hi my name is Helen Hatzaras, I’m the owner and Cake Artist of Blissful Inspirations – Cakes and Sweets. I started my venture into baking cakes and sweets in my mother’s kitchen at a very early age. She taught me all I needed to know about baking all our traditional Greek sweets.
I was so drawn to baking that I started in my early teens baking all the family’s birthday cakes using the now Vintage Edition of the Australian Women’s Weekly Children’s Birthday Cake Book. From here there was no stopping me I began making cheesecakes, pavlova’s, cupcakes, apple pies and more! I was the go-to person in my family and friends for making their cakes.
After years of baking for family and friends who constantly encouraged me to do this as a profession, I took the plunge at the end of 2016, I quit my full-time corporate career to pursue a life-long dream! Hence my baking journey began. Since Blissful Inspirations’ inception I have been so honored and proud to have been awarded numerous awards from the Australian Cake Decorating Network, Royal Melbourne Show and Melbourne's Bake & Sweets Show .
Renowned for my award-winning designs, each creation is approached individually and created for my client’s specific needs. Using only high-quality ingredients, every cake is made from scratch, including ganache, buttercream, decorations and edible cake toppers.
Blissful Inspirations Cakes and Sweets specialises in custom-designed cakes for every occasion, including weddings, engagements, birthdays, christening/baptisms, baby showers and much more.
So, whether you’re after a simple, classic or elaborate design, I will ensure that your unique cake is of the highest standard.
Blissful Inspirations Cakes and Sweets also caters for gluten-free requirements. We also cater for Dessert bars for any occasion; weddings, engagements, corporate functions and much more.
So, what are you waiting for contact me (Helen) at Blissful Inspirations Cakes and Sweets to book your appointment today!
Ferguson Plarre Bakehouses Melbourne
Ferguson Plarre Bakehouses has always been and still is a family owned and operated business. We have a long & proud history dating back to the 1800's. Both the Ferguson & Plarre Families have early European roots and we established ourselves in Australia over 110 years ago.
The Ferguson Plarre history commenced in 1901 in the Northern and Western suburbs and both families established themselves as household names in Melbourne.
Both families continued trading through both World Wars and the Great Depression despite the tough conditions. After years of refining their 'craft' and significant contributions to the pastrycooking trade both families merged their businesses to become 'Ferguson Plarre Bakehouses' in 1980.
The 4th generation Plarre family acquired the Ferguson family's interest in 2012. They actively own and manage the day to day running of the business from baking through to retail shop design, operations and bakery franchising. The family continue to embrace their forefather's commitment to quality products, service and innovation, including the use of premium victorian chicken, hormone free beef, fresh cream (no mock!), real custard (no powder!) and a whole lot of love 🙂
Nowadays, Ferguson Plarre Bakehouses are just as famous for their desserts, birthday, wedding cakes, award-winning meat pies and Tiddly Oggies as they were when we started and with over 200 years of combined experience, you’d expect nothing less.
The Cheesecake Shop Melbourne
The Cheesecake Shop started with just one store in the inner-west Sydney suburb of Rozelle in 1991 and has now grown to be an international success with over 225 cake bakeries and over 2000 employees across Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.
Nearly all of our shops are independently owned and operated by skilled franchisees, most of which have been with us for many years.
The franchised structure of the business together with the disciplined procedures and recipes helped create a consistency of quality that has led to ‘The Cheesecake Shop’ brand achieving exceptionally strong consumer awareness and preference. In 1997, The Cheesecake Shop was acknowledged by its peers in the world of franchising by being awarded the prestigious ‘Franchise System of the Year’ in Australia.
To ensure that The Cheesecake Shop brand remains as relevant and loved today and in the years ahead as it has been in the past, stores are progressively updated and in 2009, a brand refresh initiative was launched. The refresh saw the herald of the modernisation of the brand and signage together with an upgrade of the retail shop fronts to incorporate a clean new look with state of the art refrigeration.
In 2016, a bakery refurbishment initiative commenced which modernised the back-of-house operations to maintain product quality, efficiencies and consistency by the network of more than 200 franchises.
Ken Rosebery is the Managing Director and is supported by a professional management and franchisee support team.
Along the way the business has grown and evolved into a sophisticated and profitable modern enterprise. In addition to the franchising business, an ingredients supply operation was established, called United Network Suppliers, to support the retail bakeries. The headquarters of the business is now located in an office and warehouse complex at Fairfield East in Western Sydney (NSW Australia) and new franchisees are trained in the on-site bakery and retail store front.
Today the brand is synonymous with immaculately presented, hand-crafted delicious cakes, loved by a generations of Australians and New Zealanders.
The Icing Artist- Melbourne
Hi! My name is Simone Clarke and I am the owner and also baker/ cake decorator of ‘the icing artist’. I started my baking and decorating career many moons ago.
After 4 years as a decorator , at the age of 24, I was fortunate enough to have an opportunity to buy my own franchise . Although this was a scary prospect I knew what I was doing with the cakes and I had support to learn the business side of things along the way.
Another four years on and I got itchy feet. I decided there was a big wide world to explore so I sold my business and headed to London where I was fortunate enough to start working at a popular London cake company. This is where I fell in love with the art of sugar craft. I was extremely lucky to work with, manage and be tutored by some of the most amazing sugar artists in the business.
I have now arrived back in Melbourne, and have decided to bring my skills to life here! I’m based in the Bayside suburbs of Melbourne and am more than happy to cater for your special occasion where ever you may be located.
My passion is creating and designing bespoke cakes to give the cake that individual touch. I hope to hear from you soon! ☺
