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 specially built home studio in Mount Dandenong.  

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!

Questions and Answers

Is it cheaper to have a false (polystyrene) tier with the rest of the cake real?

LazyCakes by Lauren

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. 

Can I have a slab cake for cutting and serving in addition to the main cake?

LazyCakes by Lauren

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 or Buttercream?

LazyCakes by Lauren

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.

A delicious cake. 2- tier white and dark choc mud cake.

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 wonderful to work with. We gave her an idea of the sort of wedding cake we were after and she brought our vision to life!! Not only did the cake look amazing, it was also incredibly delicious- guests kept going back for more! Highly recommend!!!

Lauren makes the most amazing cakes and doesn't charge a fortune. We gave her an unusual order for our wedding, a Lego themed cake! The cake was exactly what we pictured, a white Lego brick with a small strip of orange ribbon around the base, but rainbow on the inside! And it was tasty too!

Lauren was amazing. I was recommended her by someone I know and I would have no hesitations in doing the same thing. She was available any time I needed to speak to her and also has so many flavours to choose from. After our wedding so many people commented on how tasty the cake was.
