Happy Monday Dotties! Who’s ready for another week of getting your wedding planning on?
We’re shivering in our boots only peeking our heads out the door to peer at the cold grey skies, but with mugs of tea and music playing as we work, winter is such a cosy time. Our Polka Dot Directory is a bank of talented vendors who love being involved in weddings and strive every day to help you. We have Celebrants, we have Wedding Planners, we have Entertainment and Transport – we even have Stationery and Hair & Beauty!

The delicious wedding or event cakes that emerge from Miss Ladybird Cakes’ custom cake studio are a wonderland of flavour! From toffee black currant cakes – soft toffee and golden syrup cake layered with tart black currant buttercream or white chocolate passionfruit, mud cake layered with passionfruit buttercream and tangy passionfruit curd and for chocolate lovers Chocolate salted caramel cake – to name just a few of the many beautiful flavours available. There are also gluten-free options – just ask and Miss Ladybird will accommodate your dietary requirements if at all possible. And best of all Gina has opened a gorgeous store called The Little Shop in Elsternwick (VIC) and an online store so everyone can experience her sweet creations – wagon wheels, cupcakes or red velvet cake, anyone?
We asked Gina from Miss Ladybird Cakes five questions in five minutes:
What is the most important piece of advice you can give to engaged couples?
Take a moment to write down everything you want in your day in 4 words. Then use those 4 words as a guide every time you are making a decision. For example: Crisp, Clean, relaxed, natural. This simple exercise will help you make smart decisions while keeping everything within the same design.
Tell us about a hidden talent you have?
I make great toasties. I mean really great. You think you’ve had good toasties? But wait till you try mine.
As a vendor, what excites you about the wedding day?
Food is definitely my love language, so I love knowing that people are going to walk in and see this cake sitting there all pretty and then they get to eat it!!!
What are you known for?
Our silky Buttercream skills.
If you could choose a song to play for the rest of your life what would it be?
This is so hard. But I’d have to say Go your own Way by Fleetwood Mac ( But it ties with Neil Young, David Bowie and Janis Joplin)!
