MUSIC theatre star Lucy Durack gave fellow Australia’s Got Talent judges a joyous glimpse into her Perth childhood recently during a filmed backstage chat.
Nicole Scherzinger, Manu Feildel and Shane Jacobson gave a unanimous answer of “oysters” when she asked them what their favourite food in an extreme eating challenge would be.
When the same question was posed to her Durack’s response was “probably a princess cake”, which Scherzinger said came as no surprise.
“It’s like layers of sponge and jam and custard and cream, covered in green marzipan and then with icing sugar on the top,” Durack said.
“Normally it would say something like ‘Happy birthday Lucy’ written on the top of it. I love cake.”

It has come to my attention that some people out there (like my @gottalentau pals in this video?!) don’t know about Princess Cake?! Hence, this PSA video, as it is arguably the best cake ever. Some people apparently are so clever they make it, IKEA does a sort of cute simple allen key version but if you are lucky enough to live in WA, you can take yourself to a @miss_maud_perth and treat yo’self to (in my opinion) that best Princess Cake money can buy! If anyone can recommend a similar quality Princess Cake that can be found in Melbourne I would be very grateful! 👸🏼🍰💚
In disbelief, Scherzinger asked whether the cake was real or something Durack had made up.
But those in WA, who grew up with Miss Maud, know Durack’s cake is no fairytale.
“It has come to my attention that some people out there (like my @gottalentau pals in this video!) don’t know about princess cake,” Durack said on social media.
“It is arguably the best cake ever. If you are lucky enough to live in WA, you can take yourself to a @miss_maud_perth and treat yo’self to (in my opinion) the best princess cake money can buy.”
Miss Maud has reciprocated the love and emailed Durack to say the princess cake would be on her during the WAAPA graduate’s next visit to her family home in Subiaco.
“We will hope to see her with her associates,” Maud Edmiston said.
“It’s time they thought outside the oyster mollusc.”
