My name is Melissa, but you can call me Mel! I am a professional baker with a love for all things sweet, but my passion lies in personalized cake making.
I was born and raised in Mexico where I attended Culinary School once I left Highschool. I received my Culinary Arts Degree in 2013. Since then, I have been fortunate enough to travel throughout Mexico, the USA and Canada. Working in hotels, restaurants and bakeries across North America has helped me to acquire the knowledge and skills to launch my business, Miel By Mel.
I started baking and decorating personalized cakes for my friends and family from home, long before I decided to become a Chef. There is nothing that gives me more joy than to be able to transform someone’s passion, love, and personality into a cake creation. Seeing the reaction from people when they see their cake for the first time is one of the biggest reasons I keep making more! I am blessed to be able use my imagination and creativity to its full potential each day and to bring smiles and excitement to those who buy my cakes.
With the help of my partners, Arturo Ramirez and Tim Gordon, I am now able to take this home business to the next level and spread my love of cake even further! Their belief and support in what I do and the treats I make has allowed me to expand my business in ways I never thought would be possible.
We are excited to be able to bring you flavourful, delicious, unique, and inspired cakes, as well as some Mexican sweet treats with a twist!
Thank you for stopping by!
