You know that you've made it in the world of kid-friendly cafes when a mysterious lady turns up and says, 'I'll be back very soon to review you for Hey Bambini!' In all honesty you think, 'I hope that lady comes back soon and says awesomely lovely things about Cake.'

Hey Bambini were true to their word and returned to Cake last week.... and we're pretty chuffed with the review....

"What a darling little find this place was. I was doing my usual rounds of the vintage shops in Ballarat months ago and l stumbled across Cake. I popped in, said hi and who l was and that l’d return with my camera, notepad and children to do a review. I’m sure the owner Jennifer thought l was some ‘crazy’ off the street as l didn’t have a chance to get back into Cake for months. We exchanged emails and finally the opportunity arose that l was passing through Ballarat again with the kids and I had the absolute pleasure of visiting Cake properly.

Nestled on Main Rd next to all the best vintage shops (my husband calls them ‘junk shops!’) is Cake Bake Shop. This sweet little cafĂ© is the perfect destination for morning or afternoon tea. They have a few seating options including a large communal table in the middle of the room which would be perfect for mother’s groups. On the menu is a selection of homemade mini cupcakes, macaroons and of course warm drinks. They don’t do lunch, dinner or breakfast – just morning and afternoon tea.

To keep little hands busy Cake has its own corner dedicated to the kids which has a cute white picket fence around complete with fake grass and a mini chairs and table set. Inside the play area they have a selection of toys for the kids to tinker with.

For little bottoms they provide high chairs and for the birthday bottoms they conduct private parties on Sundays. Cupcake Making, Craft parties and decorating parties are some of the themes that Little Day Out conducts in conjunction with Cake. These party stylists will celebrate your little ones special day in style. And let’s not forget get Mum, Little Day Out can also conduct parties for Mother’s to Be, High Teas and other fancy special occasions.

If having a party at Cake is not your thing then you can always pick up vintage inspired party supplies from them. Everything from stripy straws, to twine and cupcake wrappers – they have it covered. Their party range is superb and l’m sure there would be an item or two that would make your special occasion that extra special indeed.

If you’re local or passing through make sure you pay a visit to Cake. The cupcakes are delicious (as per tick of approval and rating BIG thumbs up by Mr 2) and the staff are warm and welcoming.  Who doesn’t love a cupcake, it’s a must visit for any Mum with a sweet tooth.
