Gula Gula Cakes - Cake Shop Melbourne
Not in Melbourne? No worries. You can organise your order to be delivered to a friend, family, or loved one here in Melbourne from virtually anywhere in the world. Click here to learn more. Two brand new flavours, our take on classic favourites - Kaya and Pineapple Tart
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.
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.
Laurent - Cake Shop Melbourne
03 9568 8799
AT LAURENT, THESE ARE THE VALUES WE LIVE BY EVERY DAY.
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.
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.
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.

WHY DO WE DO IT
We do it because we like what we are doing. For us, job satisfaction is the comments we get from our customers as they walk into our bakery.
You could say: Happiness is the smell of fresh bread coming straight from the oven, the flavour of the pie meat cooking on the stove, the aroma of the fresh cakes lingering in the room, a trace of spice from the fruit buns hanging in the air... The appreciation of our customers makes up for many hours of lost sleep, but there is no greater pleasure than the excitement in the eyes of the children when they discover the wide range of freshly baked goodies.
We are proud to be in a position to offer you products that are homemade by our qualified staff. Bert is sourcing all the ingredients from the best traders in the bakery business and makes them into the perfect goodies. Our meat for the pies has been carefully selected and consists of minced meat for our plain and flavoured pies, whereas the Bushman's Pie is made with chunky steak. All the vegetables and fruit for our sandwich bar comes directly from a local greengrocer.
We stock ProCal Milk for your convenience. All products are freshly made on the premises and baked daily. And in case you were wondering, all the leftover bread goes either to a charity or to a farmer for his animals.

Frequently Asked Questions
Gluten is a protein and is found in all standard flours used for cake making. It gives cakes their structure and moist texture. Without gluten, cakes are drier, crumbly and have a shorter shelf life, but there are several ways you can use to try and counter this.
The key to a great gluten-free cake is experimentation. Trying new flours such as rice, tapioca or potato are great ways to add texture to your cakes in the absence of gluten. There is plenty of gluten-free self-raising and plain flours available on the market, which will help you make great gluten-free cakes. Or, if you want to take the guesswork out of it, we've done the hard work for you and have loads of cake recipes for you to try.
Please keep your buttercream confection refrigerated until 20 mins prior to cutting. Your cake should be cut with a hot knife to ensure perfect slices.
Baking powder and baking soda help a cake rise. They increase the amount of air bubbles in the batter in addition to the air that's incorporated while mixing. Though they have the same job, they should NEVER be substituted 1 to 1.
Baking powder: When it interacts with heat and moisture, baking powder releases carbon dioxide bubbles, making batters and doughs lighter. Baking powder works twice during baking: firstly, during mixing and then in the oven.
Baking soda: Baking soda also creates bubbles during baking and helps a dough or batter rise. For it to work as a leavening agent, however, there needs to be enough acidity in the mixture, such as milk, buttermilk, lemon juice or yogurt.
