My Story

Melissa&Markus_032I am living my dream! I get to create cakes – wow!

I live on top of a hill, on a smallholding in St Helena Bay with my loving husband and our pooch, Muttley. It is the perfect environment of peace, tranquility and nature to give me the inspiration and focus for my cake creations.

It wasn’t always so. I grew up in Cape Town and graduated into the discipline of the accounting profession. In 1998 I went to live in the UK, where I met my husband, also an accountant!

We both yearned for an adventure and freedom from the “Rat Race”. In 2004 we built a guest house on the beach in Langebaan. After 8 years, we sold up and moved to our St Helena Bay paradise.

My husband built me a studio, dedicated to baking and decorating cakes. It’s what I had always wanted; I had finally come home!

And so I am living my dream…

This is my story. I would love to capture your story in a cake – designed, baked and decorated just how you want it.

Every cake will be different because everyone’s story is different.
