You thought this week of cute animals is over!? 😁 But it isn't! Look at this sleeping bunny in tiara! Isn't she the bees knees? 😍
Want to see the cake she's going with!? 😉
Half naked baby shower cake with sea theme. 😍
P.S. all cakes I make are always and forever vegan. As am I, and as is my household. 🤓💚
When you have 92 people to feed, you get huge, heavy cake 🤓 Captain obvious. 😂
This beauty is actually 3 cakes:
- White Chocolate
- Strawberry and champagne
And 2 gluten free hazelnut cupcakes (not just for decoration 😋)
The patterns and colours are taken from the invitation and Photoshopped and printed on edible paper (customer wished for no fondant).
Well cherries are fondant, but that's just for decoration 😉
Cake was roughly 40 cm high, and wouldn't fit in any of my boxes, but I got Engineering degree not for nothing 😂 I boxed it in 2 boxes, one working as a lid. It just fit.
And cutting advice. Large cakes like this one is best to be cut like so: cut a small segment off (cut off the buttercream), put a cutting board flash to that newly created straight edge, cut parallel to the board 1" or 2" away, with the help of a knife rotate that cake on board to horizontal position. Now slice in 1" - 2" - 4" intervals, and serve. Repeat. 😉
I am so proud of the skill level I managed to achieve over the years. Obviously better is the enemy of good, and there's no glass ceiling for perfection, but I'm pretty chuffed with this figurine work of mine.
What do you think about this Peter Rabbit?
Hey, vegans of the South! Did you know that Baldivis IGA has vegan macarons!? 😱😍 Yep, they do. Freshly delivered just before the weekend. Go check them out 🤓
A sneaky little look at a cake. Just thought you'd love this tail guys. 😁💚 I know I do.
THIS IS LEWIS THE HEDGEHOG. He is here to wish my husband a happy birthday. When we met many years ago he had a hedgehog called Lewis, that he loved and cared for.
This peanutbutter hedgehog travelled with my husband to his work, and might be all eaten by now. 😝
Happy Birthday, love!
Some items that went with us to the market. :)
There were gazillion of macarons and two cakes (I was only left with a few macarons and 4 cake slices 😱) I might be popular baker around here 😝😂
Who's happy!? I'm happy!
⚪I got to give and receive hugs from my friends that I have not seen for a long time!
⚪ I got to meet baby Mazey for the very first time 😍
⚪I got to feed people sweet cruelty-free desserts.
⚪ I got some snacks for myself from @noshingnaturally
and for my pooches from @furry_treats
⚪And I get to chat about animals with Katrina Love.
It was my very first market, and it was loads of fun! .
Thank you @shapehairoxfordstreet
for hosting us! 💚👍
Yesterday we baked enough cake to serve 200 people 😱 it wasn't one huge cake, although a 90 person cake plaid a role in it ;) This beauty was made earlier in the week.
He or She, who will it be? 🤓
No, you can not count all circles to find out, based on majority 😝 It has to be cut.
NOR VEGANS REJOICE! 💚😋
Delivery of muffins, brownies and even a cake coming your way today. Visit Sisters Supa IGA in Joondalup. 👌
WHY DO I DO WHAT I DO?
I do it for the animals and for the people!
I am vegan, and have been vegan for almost 4.5 years. My husband and kids are vegan too. From time to time we are also activists (cube of truth, vigils, live export protests...). I do write letters to kid's swimming pool to ask to introduce vegan sweets as a reward, I did ask Scouts Australia to emphasize vegan as a creed, to make sure vegan children and adults can not be discriminated. I do my very best, but I believe I can do more!
I believe I can bring a smile to a vegan child, I believe I can make a day of unity and love a little bit more special for a couple in love, I believe that long waiting to meet your child for the very first time can be better with a slice of cake or two, I believe I can make hard farewells a little bit sweeter... In my opinion we (vegans) deserve that cake! I know every person with a food allergy can and SHOULD have the best, safest dessert for their celebration! I believe I can make hard days a little bit more bearable, and happy moments a tad happier.
I do it for the community, for all of us, and if what I do makes non vegans consider vegan options, if it helps to build that bridge of understanding - well that #caketivism
is all I need as a reward.
I do it for the animals and for the people. And I wouldn't want it any other way.
NEW FLAVOUR! STRAWBERRY & CHAMPAGNE! 🍓 & 🍾
I bet this is perfect flavour for a romantic occasion... Say a Wedding! 😍
Speaking about weddings, I had a lovely couple visiting me today for some cake eating 😎 and cake talking 📝
Now that cake is in my cake calendar and one exciting weekend is booked off! I'll be driving like a nana with that cake to the venue, and I'll be smiling like a fool 😁 because I just loooove bringing cake. 😋
MONDAY MACARONDAY! 🙋
I'm off to the kitchen to carry on making miracles happen. 😝
P.S. I do remember to show you that strawberry & champagne cake, I do.
I bring you cake, and it brings me joy! 😊
Today is my day off, so... I'm working on a new flavour 😝 Sit tight, will update you all shortly. 🍰
For a couple of months now I'm joined in the kitchen by Zoe the Joey! 😂 Yes we are funny like that. Zoe (the Joey) learns the ropes fast, comes up with creative ideas, communicates with the World outside the kitchen 😱😂 and bring you those cupcakes! Hip hip hooray for Zoe! @foodbyzoe
Pssst: find cupcakes at Leederville IGA and both Fresh Provisions. 😎 Don't thank me. 😂
Lemon 🍋 cake! Oh I 💛 it!
See my colour matching skills, level God? 😂 Edible paper (by pure accident!) turned out to match buttercream exactly.
SOME IMPORTANT INFO:
- If I have said yes - that means burns, stab wounds, hail, rain, or shine I'll make that cake happen (ask my customers!)
- I am not able to be present online during working hours, and I am slow on responding to messages because I am in the kitchen making those cakes ;) And there's a lot of them, and only one of me.
- Please do not leave your cake order to the last minute, as I might not be able to help. Give me at least 10 days notice.
- No cake will go ahead without the deposit being received first, as I hate spending my time working on the cake that eds up being cancelled.
The end of important info.
This is last giveaway cake. No it wasn't carrot cake 😂 It's Jaffa. 🍊🍫
Decorating cakes is my meditation, my "me time", my out of this World experience. You may say I'm cake decor junkie. 😍 People love doing strange things, like gardening (not me!), I'm one of those weirdos 😂 .
I loved making this make-up and jewellery box cake for a young lady. 💜❤💛
This is what I call "Dessert Cake", a cake that is classically (simply) decorated and can be served just because, or for a celebration - you decide. It is as delicious as any decorated cake I make, but it saves you some $. ;) (Prices are on my webpage, info in bio)
New day - new cake. :) This one is #chocoron
I AM BACK! THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE. ❤I believe I came back to all that enquired while I took a few days off. But if not - let me know. 🙃
Look, a cake that signifies a journey from addiction (alcohol, drug or in fact any other) through therapy and help to being free from it! 💪😊
Remember this homeless jaffa cake? We ate it 😝 It was my brother-in-law's birthday, and it was yum! 👌
An other goody box of Quokka Kisses & Petit Fours for one of my favourite clients! ❤

Today's sweet delivery! 😍 .
And I'm calling it a week. Going to sit down and celebrate my brother-in-law's birthday! Yay! I got to have a cake and eat it too! 🎂🎆🎇🎉
Done 10 cakes for this weekend, am proud and exhausted, and happy. :) Stay tuned, will share all those cakes with you next week.
Oh, also @peachesfreshfood
got restocked with macaroons, guys.
Due to cancellation I have one 15 person cake available. It's Chocolate & Orange Marmalade. Will NOT work for gluten free folks or those with peanut allergy.
Currently undecorated, so can be made to look the way you want it to. 👌
Drip style: $120 (shards, chocorons, sweeties...)
HEY, GF VEGANS, WE HAVE NEWS FOR YOU! 😎
You can now get our gluten free cupcakes whenever you want them. Our friends at Fresh Provisions Bicton and Mt Lawley now have 4 flavours available; peanut butter, mint chocolate, chocolate and caramel! So if you’re after GF vegan treats, please stop by and support these new locations!
NEW FLAVOUR! LEMON & ROSEMARY.
Half naked cake with live flours for a hen's do. Earthy, citrusy, elegant.
TESTING TESTING! New flavour available, Lemon & Rosemary. It's earthy, it's with a note of lemon, it's not overly sweet, but it is unmistakably a dessert. And I love it.
This test cake has blueberries because I thought it'd be better looking, real deal has no blueberries.
VEGAN MINI MARKET on 15/04/18 at Shape Hairdressing Oxford Street 9:00-13:00. Quokkas very first market 😊 We'll bring you brownies, quokka kisses, macarons, as well as other treats 😋🍪

Love Quokka Cakes. 💚🌱
FRESH CUPCAKES DELIVERED TO LEEDERVILLE IGA THIS MORNING!
Meanwhile I can't have enough of this beauty! 😍
KEEP SCROLLING! Those beauties are "quokka kisses" they are a vegan version of extremely popular Latvian snack called " biezpiena sierins", it is also popular in Russia and goes by the name of "творожный сырок" [tvorojny sirok], literally meaning "quark cheeseling".
My vegan version of the treat has vegan white or dark chocolate, coconut and is based on tofu. This is as far as healthy desserts go I think ;) It is still dense, creamy, sweet with a texture of quark. It definitely hits the spot for me. 😍
LAVANDER, ROSEWATER, PEANUTBUTTER! Just a few flavours available this week in an assorted box. But if you'd love a box of 12 or maybe even 40, if you'd love a box with only caramel, or only passion fruit, or mix of match a and rosewater only - just let us know, and we'll make it happen. Just for you! 💚🌱
DOUBLE FUN! This cake is double barrel, but it is not a single flavour! It's rich chocolate and it's vanilla & mulberry jam. Local organic mulberries, my own home made jam. Those 3 cake pops on the top mimic decorations from last year's baby shower, and now young gentlemen is ONE! Happy first birthday! 💙👟👦🎂
Good morning, sunshine! 😂☀ Yes, I'm up at 7am on Sunday. Getting ready for new week's work. Today's task number 1 if thinking of macaron flavours for tomorrow. Two figured out: rosewater and matcha. Four to go. Ideas? 😜
SUPER SPECIAL CAKE! My customer could not have soy in her cake (that's easy), could not have nuts (easy!) and could not have any sunflower oils or lecithins. That was trickier as Nuttelex I use for buttercream is out, white chocolate is out, wafers, shards, sprinkles... all out. Thankfully there's a Nuttelex without sunflower (coconut one). And there's a fondant that I can make yellow roses out of 💛💐 So despite no nuts, soy, eggs, dairy, sunflower seed oil, this utterly yellow lemon cake was there on the table and was enjoyed. 😊 Happy birthday! 🎂
A baby shower cake with two cutest elephants and a dozen of cupcakes. 😍
It's Vanilla & Jam cake. Home made mulberry jam, from locally foraged mulberries. All vegan as always ;)
For years I have been asked where my cakes can be found, last year it was FERN and Roark, this year we start with Vegan Mecca - Leederville IGA, and Henry Saw, and working on getting to where you are! Bon appetite! 😎😝
Get your macaron on! 🤘 New, fresh, delicious! 😊😱😍
Choc-raspberry, cinnamon (OMG!), mint, pistachio, bubblegum (so fun!) and peach.
At @lovinghutperth @lavidavegangrocery
or from our headquarters. 😜
Happy International Woman's Day guys! ...from me a woman that got herself a couple of degrees in Civil Engineering (because a girl can be anything she wants to be!) and took even braver bolder step of starting my own business several years ago. Girls rock! 🤘
Cupcakes, cupcakes, cupcakes and...more cupcakes. 😊 My cake fridge is full and bursting. Tomorrow we'll deliver vegan beauties to... where? 🤔😁
Bet you didn't realise past two pictures were of the same cake! 😜 Joined birthday? Not a problem, we can make you Unicorn & Spidarman cake, no problem! 😊
When you are turning 4, when you love Spiderman - this is the cake. 🕷🕸🎂
Here we have a cute unicorn cake for the very first birthday! 😍 Unicorn is dressed up and ready for celebration (see that bow tie). Inside it's vanilla and jam. All vegan as always. 😜
I HAD A WHALE OF A TIME! 🐋
This was a cake I was dying to make. Marine animals have been a talk of this family for good 3-5 months, since we have been watching Blue Planet II.
So first I had to decide on a whale. After carful consideration I narrowed the search for a perfect whale to the shores of WA. And out of all local whales I found frowning Southern Right whale the most interesting. With it's funny belly patterns and those crazy patches above his eyes -a perfect whale. 🐳👌 .
Then there was a diver (a birthday girl), admiring the ocean giant. I made her in under half an hour! [Patting myself on the back for speedy work]
Inside it's vanilla&jam. Yes I had to carve before assembly.
I love this cake. Do you? 😉
I had a challenge - I had to create Wedding Unicorn cake. So a cake that's fun enough for a magical creature, but subtle enough for an occasion. I think I managed to find that balance. All those little pink and blue flowers 👌
A lonely chick cosmic cake with wibbly wobbly stars and the Moon! ⭐🌟🌜🌟⭐
LIVE DANGEROUSLY! Pistachio macarons and Gothic looking Oreo macarons. :) I promise next post will be back to cakes. I'm making some exciting cakes right now 😍
A last minute order, but still all beautiful and catering to dietary requirements (I.e. no gluten). Most of my cakes have "no nuts", " no soy", "no coconuts", " no gluten"... written on cake calendar entry for the week. And I love being able to create a vegan cake that would be inclusive of all present at a celebration. ;)
Chocolate macarons! 🍫😍 Look at the colour of that filling - it's richer than rich!
I love Wedding cakes! And I am to created one most unusual wedding cake this week 😊 It's very unorthodox. 👌
LAST CAKE! One quarters cake left for a lucky ducky ;) It's Chocolate, Ferrero, Black Forrest and Tiramisu. Feeds about 10. Price $70. Can be collected any time today. 🍰
HOMELESS CAKE! I have this rich chocolate drip cake, with white chocolate drip and gold leaf, with flours and meringues. All vegan (forever and always) and would feed 10. Standard price would be $100, giving away for $70.
First come - first adopt 🤓 💚
Quarters - an ultimate cake! Everyone can have a slice to their best liking. 😍 This one is chocolate, lemon, vanilla &jam, and Ferrero. But today I'm baking this combo:
- Black Forrest
- Dark chocolate
It's 6" round cake, that would feed about 10.
Let me know if you'd like this week's Quartets. ;)
Ah, an other family treat, an other chock and drunk pear pie! Yummo! 😍👌
Remember to grab your quarter cake this week! Only two up for grabs. Perfect for chock lovers: Chock, Black Forrest, Tiramisu and Ferrero.
Does this picture need caption? 😁
Customer photo, as I sometimes forget to photograph my cakes. 😌
It's Pink Star Wars though!!!! 😍
This week I was working on gluten free AND sugar free mud cakes. I make gluten free cakes quite often and on occasion I make sugar free cakes (with stevia, xilytol, nectars...), but combining the two was quite interesting. So I made:
- Peanut butter cake (absolute winner!)
- Vanilla and jam
- Chock and mint
- Fruitcake (no sweetener added, just fruits)
- Orange and poppy seed
I think I'll experiment with GF & sugar free sponge cakes next.
But on today's experiment agenda I have marshmallows. Will it work? Will it fail? The suspense. 😜
