If you want a showstopping cake look no further than Mali Bakes. Mali Bakes is a one-woman show in Thornbury, specialising in bespoke celebration cakes with bold colours and big flavours, that set out to bring back warm and joyful childhood memories. The chocolate, peanut butter cheesecake with pretzels and white chocolate ticks all the sweet-tooth boxes, whereas the olive oil, ricotta, blackberry, fennel, sea salt and honey cake caters to a slightly more savoury palate. Mali Bakes is open for custom cake pick-ups and local delivery between Tuesday and Saturday from 11am to 4pm, and the store sells cakes by the slice on a Saturday from 9am until sold out - and trust us, they often sell out quickly.
There's cake, and then there is cake. If you're in need of a lip-lickingly good, and highly 'grammable cake, then you've come to the right place. These are our favourite party cakes in Melbourne which you can order for your next celebration, with everything from traditional layer cakes, to OTT creations, to cheesecakes and even sneaky ice cream cakes.
