OVERVIEW

Lazycakes - making art in sugar. I love creating cakes and sugar art for weddings.

I’ve been designing and making cakes since 2011, now working from my home studio in Officer.  I deliver my creations Vicoria wide - including Dandenong Ranges, Gippsland and Metro.

I specialise in quirky and offbeat creations, tailoring each cake to my clients individual interests or themes. I also do simple and stunning cakes with fresh florals and buttercream.  

I love working with sugarpaste and am highly skilled in making characters and figurines.
Looking forward to hearing from you to discuss your dream wedding cake!

About

Hi! I started Lazycakes by Lauren in 2011 making birthday cakes for my children as well as friends and family. I realised I had found a passion and a creative outlet that made the people I made cakes for smile. Now living and working in the south east suburbs from my Cake Studio, I take my inspiration from my surroundings, movies, tv shows as well as the latest trends in the world of cake. I enjoy working with clients to bring their ideas to life to celebrate their special day.

FAQ

I see this idea being put out there a lot...the answer is generally no.

Unless... you have a small number of guests say 30-50 but you want a dramatic 3+ tier cake. The false tier gives you the drama and height you want without having another 90 serves of cake too.

If you have 100+ guests you are going to need a cake that is all cake, generally speaking.

Plus dont forget that fake tier also needs fondant or buttercream on it and flowers or other decoration, the same as if it were real cake. 

Yes! Absolutely!

If you are having 80+ guests and you'd like smaller sized main cake, a few slab cakes are a great way to get the additional serves.

It wont be dramatically cheaper - you are still ordering cake enough for the remaining serves, that needs baked and iced - but it should be less than if you add those serves into the main cake which could add 2 or more tiers.

Fondant is a soft sugarpaste icing that can be coloured to suit your theme/style. Its generally vanilla flavoured and dried to form a firm shell around the cake. 

Buttercream is made from butter (I only use butter, never shortening) and icing sugar, beated together with vanilla or another flavouring. It comes in various forms and styles - American, Swiss Meringue and Italian Meringue. They all have various degrees of stability in heat

I tend to use American and Swiss depending on the time of year. 

Remember - butter is yellow. Pure white buttercream cakes you may see in magasines generally have a brightening filter on the photos or the buttercream is made with shortening which is white.

Lauren went out of her way to come into the city to meet me and gave me 7 different testers to see which one I wanted. I had a beautiful three tier cake.

Lauren was fantastic to deal with from the booking process to delivery. She hand delivered our cake on time and responded promptly whenever we had requests or questions. We wanted a cake that looked beautiful, but above all, we wanted one that tasted amazing and Lauren did not disappoint in either area. We had many compliments on our beautiful and delicious cake in the days and weeks following our wedding, with many guests taking extra cake home to enjoy. I look forward to ordering more celebration cakes from Lauren in the future.

Wow! Lauren's cakes are not only absolutely delicious but are stunning. Everyone commented on how much they enjoyed the cake and how beautiful it looked. She nailed the look and florals. Couldn't recommend more!

How far in advance do we need to book a wedding cake?

What's the usual lead time on a wedding cake including tastings please?

LazyCakes by Lauren

I'd say 6-8months in advance. Many designers are booked in advance and many limit the number of wedding cakes they will do in a weekend. For example I will only do 2 per week and only if they don't fall on the same day because I make and deliver all my cakes myself so 2 weddings in one day could be very tight! 
If you know who you want to make your cake - get it booked in ASAP!!??
