Baked cakes and sweet treats with meticulous detail
If you are anything like me and you are not blessed in the cake making department, you might need to call in the baking experts to create a sweet treat for your loved one's celebrations.

Rather than attempt a potentially disastrous baked masterpiece for my sons recent first birthday, I searched for a skilled cake maker to create a design to compliment his party day.

After a referral from one local cake maker to another, I found Bake Me Bella; an independent cake designer based in Bentleigh East, with a registered Domestic Kitchen with the Glen Eira Council.

The creative baker behind Bake Me Bella, Phuong Harjanta, left the corporate world to begin a new career in custom designed cakes for special occasions, unleashing an inner creativity that is evidently seen in her magnificent creations for weddings, birthdays, engagements and more.

Most of her cake making experience is self-taught, although Phuong attends regular professional classes to increase her skill-set, seen in the intricate designs of some of her wedding cakes.

After conversing with Phuong on email a few months prior, my request asked for a cake to include my sons name with a similar design to his birthday invitations.

Leaving the cake in Bake Me Bella's capable hands, I collected by son's creation on the morning of his birthday party and immediately fell in love with the simplicity of Phuong's design, yet fully appreciated her time spent on every meticulous detail, including the cake's edible lion topper complete with a number 1 balloon attached to his tail.

As my son's birthday song bellowed throughout the house, my family and I helped the little man cut into his cake to discover a delicious and overwhelmingly satisfying chocolate interior, enough to fill the entire crew, plus more for leftovers.

Other Bake Me Bella designed birthday cakes have covered various subjects such as trains, circus animals and popular children's themes, including an amazing Octonauts cake that Phuong designed for her own son's birthday.

Having seen and tasted the end result of the time and effort that is spent on each and every design, what you are getting should you choose Bake Me Bella for your next celebration, is far from your average cake, but instead one that is made with a creative flair seen in every little tiny detail.

Next time your celebrations require cakes or baked treats, Bake Me Bella prices start from $120 depending on the design, with basic cookies from $3.50 and macarons $27 per dozen.
