A baker in Sydney, Australia, is feeling inspired by Taylor Swift!

Gabriela Oporto, the founder of Bakealicious by Gabriela, tells PEOPLE that she has created various Swift-themed treats amid the singer's tour stops in the country.

Speaking about one unique cake she made, Oporto tells PEOPLE, “I researched a little bit and found out her favorite color was purple, hence why I decided to add a beautiful purple flower in the middle of the cake."

Noting that she used ingredients from the Milk Bar Store "as a base," the baker adds that she then added "my personal South-American touch by using dulce de leche and puff pastry layers."

Oporto then “finished off” the cake “with puff pastry horns filled with dulce de leche Swiss-meringue buttercream.”

Along with the special cake, Oporto has crafted an array of other snacks, including gluten-free brownies, vegan cupcakes in a mix of six flavors, her best-selling Victoria sponge cake and her Scrumptious Chocolate Cake.

Oporto has also made some gluten-free Lamington cakes, a traditional Australian baked good that consists of squares of cake that are coated in chocolate and rolled in desiccated coconut.

In early 2023, Oporto says she was commissioned to create cakes for both Harry Styles and Ed Sheeran during their tour stops in Sydney.

Sheeran’s tour stopped off at the harbour city in February last year, while Styles brought his show there in March.

“It feels unreal, [I’m] still pinching myself. I feel so proud and grateful to have achieved my dream of having a successful cake shop,” Oporto says, adding that she is "So happy, words can’t describe it."

Swift performed her third Eras Tour show in Sydney on Sunday night local time, when she expressed her delight at the reception she has so far received there.

“This is honestly … you guys … I don't know if I've known this level, that you're on,” Swift told the audience, adding, “I might be in uncharted territory here. I’m very happy about it. I’m just stunned. Thank you so much."
