“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”.

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.
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.

Laurent Cake Shop Melbourne
+61 3 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 Bouillon, 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.
Eat Freely Cake Shop Melbourne

I have always enjoyed making cakes and throughout the years have learnt many varied techniques in decorating.
In 2001 I found myself having to modify any of my recipes in order to cater to my husband, who had developed fructose malabsorption. A few years later, we also discovered our son had allergies to nuts and eggs, amongst other things. Again, I found myself modifying recipes and searching for cakes that tasted and looked as good as “normal” cakes that all my family could eat.
We believe that everyone deserves to eat celebration cakes – even people with special dietary requirements.
This is why our range includes gluten-free, dairy-free, allergy-friendly, vegan, fructose friendly & Low FODMAP options.

Why are cakes important in celebrations?
Every occasion calls for a cake. A small cake has the power to light up the party and make things extra special. Cake cutting ceremony is one of the most important activities for celebrating a birthday, anniversary, wedding, farewell, success parties or festivals. We have several sweet treats available in the market, but cakes hold a special place in every heart. But, have you ever wondered why cakes are special?
Many festivals are coming, and with that, they also bring our desire to have sweet good-looking stuff – especially cakes. Be it a birthday party, an anniversary or a regular party — there’s one thing usually common — a cake. We all love enjoying cakes on such occasions, right? Sometimes we are occupied with so many other things on such days. Isn’t it? What do we want on that special day? A beautiful cake which is readymade and can be delivered to the venue. Won’t you agree?
Adds More Happiness
When you organise a party, it shows the depth of your happiness. An ordinary menu will be like other days that include a starter, food, dessert and some drinks. But, by including a cake, you can make your celebration more special, delicious, and joyful.
A Good Way Of Celebration
Cakes are taken as the best way of celebration as it hangs around the people until the cake cutting ceremony completes. A person who is the main star of the party gets the attention of people. It allows people to eat, sing and play, which makes the environment more enjoyable and fun excitement.
Cake For Any Occasion
Everyone has their own special day, which they celebrate using a cake. Nowadays a cake is not limited only to a birthday celebration. It has taken place on many occasions, like wedding parties, anniversary celebrations, christening, etc. It just adds a new flavour to your way of celebration.
Different Types Of Cakes
Traditionally, the cakes were available only in round shape with limited flavours. Currently, cakes are available in numerous flavour and shape like heart, rectangle and specialised with name, etc. Even for children, cakes are designed in a particular cartoon shape. Now, you can buy various cakes distinct on the basis of ingredients, taste, design and colour.
Symbol of love
In ceremonies such as weddings, cakes play an important role in symbolising partners’ love towards each other. The cutting of the cake shows the willingness of the partners to share and take care of each other in their marriage, while feeding each other symbolises their willingness to provide and be there for each other in times of need. On birthdays, cakes symbolise the love of the birthday person towards their family or friends. The bigger the cake, the bigger the love!
Sharing and Generosity
Cutting the cake and distributing it to the attendees is a show of generosity in certain ceremonies, and occasions that involve acts of charity usually have this important centrepiece to symbolise their generosity.
A Present or Gift
Cakes are a cuisine usually associated with affluence and prestige. Giving out a cake as a present is a sign of appreciation and shows the commitment you have towards the recipient of the gift. Cakes are sweet, meticulously prepared, and thoughtful. However, it doesn’t have to break the bank, and you can easily research all cake prices online. To that end, they act as a valuable gift to a loved one, especially on occasions such as valentine’s day, graduation, or even career promotion celebrations.
Cakes are used to mark milestones made in someone’s life. For instance, birthday cakes are used to indicate the beginning of a new year in someone’s life. Wedding cakes indicate a marriage’s beginning; graduation cakes denote a new milestone in the education space. In contrast, baby shower cakes show the beginning of a new life as a parent.
Symbolises climax of the ceremony
Most celebratory ceremonies wouldn’t feel complete without the cutting of a cake or the sharing of one. The sharing of the cake symbolises that the ceremony has reached the climax. In most cases, it is the sweetest of the foods in the ceremony, the best looking of them all, and the scarcest. To that end, all events in the ceremony leading up to the cutting of the cake. The birthday is not complete until the cake is cut and shared, the same with a wedding, a baby shower and a plethora of other ceremonies.
Cakes are significant on any occasion they’re served. They show the generosity of the providers, their love, the cyclical nature of life, act as present or gift, and are the main show of climax of any event. It would almost be taboo not to have this precious gateau in your celebrations!
