Hi Girls,

My son's bday is coming up next month and I'm wanting to get a Transformers or Spiderman cake made.

Does anyone have any recommendations for a cake maker that wont cost me the earth?

Thanks!

When I moved to Melbourne at the beginning of last year I found a great lady who makes great cakes at very reasonable prices IMO.  The only snag is she is in Thomastown (North) so if you don't mind a drive, they are well worth it!

Dont know where you are in melbourne, but out near Dandenong, Lucy's Devine Cakes are wonderful and very well priced.
They made both my DD's and my friends DS's first birthday cakes and they were great. Fantasic tasting super rich mud cake is what we had, so not just pretty- which is important!

Eiffel Tower cakes is pretty fabulous and well priced as well - but similarly are in Tullarmarine, so not sure if that works for you?
Here's a link to their site: http://www.eiffeltower.com.au/

I was just in Woolworths Eastland (Ringwood) this morning and they had awesome looking Spiderman cakes. It was $20 for a small one and $40 for a big one. They also had Peppa Pig and Mickey Mouse ones. I was really impressed with the look of them.
I imagine all Woolworths with a bakery would have them so maybe have a look.

Christine, if you let me know the date you need the cake for, I'll see who is available and list them for you. I know a couple of people around that area, so I might be of some help in finding someone.

Hello dr dolly
You said you had a chef friend in mount waverly. I'm in desperate need of a peppa pig cake for my daughter for Saturday the 24rd. Not much notice I know. Bit just a simple sponge as long as peppa pig is involved. Try are all so expensive. Any chance you could ask your friend if this is possible? My original cake maker fell through tonight. So I realise not much time.
Thank you and hope you get this post.
Kind regards Gen

I'm not able to do it, but I asked a few friends who decorate and I have someone who can do it, if you are happy to pick up from Mooroolbark.
If so let me know and I'll get her details to you
