Cake is celebratory, playful, fun, indulgent, totally unnecessary (but also extremely necessary) and a means of creative expression. And it’s serious business. So in 2023, Aussie baking Instagram celebrities, Alice Bennett and Alisha Henderson teamed up to create Co Bake Space, a small shopfront and commercial kitchen for hire in Richmond.

The space is designed for creatives, brands, and anyone else to use Co Bake Space as a place to host workshops, pop-ups, classes, tastings and stage shoots. It’s a blank enough canvas that guests can add their own flourishes, but they can also activate the space without bringing anything but themselves and their goods.

This means you’ll find different creatives on regularly rotation, from bakers selling their cupcakes one week to florists running collaborative workshops the next.

The vibrant store front, designed by Dot Dot Dash, has an all-peach interior with warm lighting, touches of gingham, and a sign over the kitchen door that reads “Caking in progress” that lights up like an “On air” sign.

Co Bake Space has no regular hours. Check its Instagram for upcoming pop-ups.
