Eat Freely Cake Shop Melbourne
0407 543 599
I have always enjoyed making cakes and throughout the years have learnt many varied techniques in decorating.
In 2001 I found myself having to modify any of my recipes in order to cater to my husband, who had developed fructose malabsorption. A few years later, we also discovered our son had allergies to nuts and eggs, amongst other things. Again, I found myself modifying recipes and searching for cakes that tasted and looked as good as “normal” cakes that all my family could eat.
We believe that everyone deserves to eat celebration cakes - even people with special dietary requirements.
This is why our range includes gluten-free, dairy-free, allergy-friendly, vegan, fructose friendly & Low FODMAP options.

Two brand new flavours, our take on classic favourites - Kaya and Pineapple Tart
We’re a boutique bakehouse specialising in a premium line of on-demand, made-to-order cakes and treats for all occasions. We’re 100% Australian-owned - by Melburnians, for Melburnians.
“Connecting heritage with contemporary cake culture” - our motto and what inspired us to build this brand from the ground up. Click below to read more about the brand, as well as the journey that brought us to where we are today.
FROM HUMBLE BEGINNINGS.
noun “sugar” (Bahasa - Indonesian/Malay)
The name “Gula Gula” owes its name to the brand’s founders, who, above all else, share their connection through their ethnic heritage, as well as a passion for sweets and artistry. Interestingly enough, both founders are fully qualified professionals (one in Health, one in Finance) who, prior to this venture, grew up without a background in baking or hospitality! So how did they get here?
The journey of Gula Gula started out as a conversation about showcasing an infusion of elements influenced by heritage and the familiarity of contemporary cake culture. This sparked an idea that was ultimately conceived with the goal of achieving this result by incorporating the brand’s core design language - creating products that were clearly inspired by nature and art, all the while complemented by a curated range of traditional and classic flavours to match.
As the concepts and ideas started to grow organically over time, so did the brand’s vision. Gula Gula has now evolved into something that essentially celebrates every creation produced as edible art forms. The founders have always had a firm belief that these creations weren’t made just to satisfy taste buds; the craftsmanship and professionalism that goes into each and every product and service should ultimately leave a lot to be admired and desired.
“CELEBRATING HERITAGE, ART, AND CAKE CULTURE.”
We pride ourselves on being able to offer our clients the ultimate flexibility in tailoring their product exactly the way they want it. From birthdays to baby showers, to wedding cakes for that one big day, we ensure that our clients will always receive an immaculate and equally delectable work of art for any occasion, precisely the way they’ve imagined it to be.
So now that you’re familiar with our story, we want you to be a part of it.

How to choose the best cake for occasions?
No matter how big or small, cats are and have always been an essential part of almost every celebration. They are the elements that make every occasion look outstanding. This means the day is outstandingly appropriate for proper commemoration. Without some kind of cake, any party would seem pointless, particularly for birthdays, anniversaries and weddings. All these celebratory days are known as the most important days of the year.
A cake should be chosen carefully since it tells a lot about your taste as well as style. And, with so many options proposed, it might be tough for you to choose that one perfect cake for the special event. By following these steps, you can easily skip the vigorous cake selection ceremony and choose the right cake, which you have been fantasising about for your special occasion. So, have a look at these simple steps.
A complete guide for choosing cakes
Find Out What You Really Want
The foremost thing you have to figure out what you really want is that you can only move ahead. Are you searching for a traditional cake or willing to have a customised cake for your special event? Whether you want to go with staple flavours or want something unique? You have to find out the answers to these primary questions first before proceeding to the next step. Figuring out the basic things will ease your process of getting the right wedding cake further.
Choose a Perfect Bakery/Online Cake Store
After figuring out the answers to the primary questions, you have to move further and choose a renowned online cake store. Winni is a trustworthy online cake store in India that provides a unique range of online cakes in different sizes, flavours and designs. It is always good to settle for an online store that specialises in the style of cake you want to have on the special event. While selecting the cake bakery, you have to look at a few things – flavours they provide, customisation they can do, the time they consumed and yes the most important, i.e. price. So, browse and ask before selecting the bakery too.
Tell your Budget without Hesitancy
It doesn’t matter how small or big is your budget, be straight about it from the very beginning. This will help in selecting the right cake as per the budget else you would end up in further delays. If you are purchasing your cake from a physical bakery store, then telling your budget to the baker will help you a lot because he will only showcase the design within your budget. However, if you are going online, you can use the price filter option and select the range within your budget. After that, you will find the cake within your budget.
Select the Right Flavor
Nowadays, cakes come in different flavours. If you are not interested in having traditional cake on the birthday or wedding or anniversary, try red velvet cake, coffee cake, cappuccino cake, carrot cake, or any other flavour cake. Whether you are shopping for a birthday cake or wedding cake, just ask the baker about the few flavours that are trending these days. After that, you will get the idea of which flavour will spark your occasion. If you are buying cake online, you can check out trending cake flavours on google or ask it from the customer support helpdesk (via chat or call).
Taste the Cake Flavor Before Purchasing
Once you select the flavour, it is recommended to taste it before placing the order. The cake should taste as good as it appears. Also, it is good to take someone along for tasting the cake. It will make the cake selection process quite easier. However, this kind of option is not available online. In that case, you can go through the product review, and if it’s a positive review, then you go ahead with that particular cake.
Decide the Cake Theme
This is a perfect step that is both exciting and tiresome at the same time. Since all these things you are doing to enhance the special event’s joy, extra effort from your side will always get rewarded. If you have planned for the theme party, then your cake should also be based on the theme. So, decide the cake theme in advance so that everything goes smoothly.
Keep in Mind the Number of Guests
While ordering the cake, you must keep the number of guests. Also, you should check for their taste and preference. It is good to go with the eggless cake if the maximum of your guests is vegetarian. Keeping the number of guests in mind will also help you place your order as per the required quantity so that there should be no wastage and no shortage! You can go smartly in this case. Do you want to know that? Yes, then here it is. Just don’t order one large cake. Put one cake in the centre of the table with your desired flavour and designs, and along with that cake, keep two or three small cakes. You can even order small cakes in eggless and to have some simple and safe flavour, prefer vanilla, chocolate or fruit. This is how your choosy guests can have a big bite of their desired cake and enjoy the celebration as well.
Confirm About Cake Delivery Details
Some so many people really forget two things to ask about the cake. One is who will deliver the cake and what time? The second is who will set it up. Hence, it is vital to confirm the cake delivery details. Winni provides hassle-free online cake delivery to the desired venue; therefore, if you are ordering from shops, you don’t have to stress it.
Cakes symbolise happiness and positivity. Candles were lighted on birthday cakes to make them shine with joy like a diamond. Ancient people believe that cutting birthday cakes would increase the celebrant’s age. Choose cakes wisely from a wide variety of cakes online.

What is the most expensive cake?
4000 Diamonds! A bakery in Chester, England, has created what is reportedly the world's most expensive wedding cake, valued at $52.7 million. It took more than 4000 diamonds to decorate this eight-tiered confection.
The term "cake" has a long history. The word itself is of Viking origin, from the Old Norse word "kaka". The ancient Greeks called cake πλακοῦς (plakous), which was derived from the word for "flat", πλακόεις (plakoeis). It was baked using flour mixed with eggs, milk, nuts, and honey.
