What customers say about Cakes & Desserts by Melissa…

Simply put, our wedding cake was delicious and beautiful – what more could you ask for? We gave Melissa three pictures and a whole bunch of ideas of what we were looking for. She was able to find clarity in all our ideas and came up with a wonderful design. An added layer of complexity was that Melissa was to make the cake in Calgary but we were transporting it to Jasper. Melissa put a lot of thought and energy into making sure our cake arrived safe and sound. As we were not going to see the cake until our reception, I was little nervous but when we walked through the hall doors, we were blown away. Melissa crafted a wedding cake that well exceeded our very high expectations.

After sampling Melissa's creations on a few occasions, it was a piece of cake for us to decide who would make one of the most important ingredients for our Wedding Day. Melissa did not disappoint...the cake looked amazing and tasted like heaven in our mouths!

Thanks Melissa for the absolutely 'to die for' Melissa’s Signature Chocolate Cake for my birthday! The best chocolate cake I've ever had! My friends loved it too!

Floria Ng, Consultant


Our wedding cake went above and way beyond our expectations and was perfect! We were married in May 2009 and by far, the quickest and easiest part of the planning was our wedding cake.  Melissa was highly recommended by a group of close friends who had tasted her cakes on a few occasions. We can honestly say she lived up to the reputation she has earned. We were delighted from the moment we called her to arrange the first meeting, to the time the cake disappeared from our fridge after our wedding day. Melissa was very professional and helpful throughout the entire process. She took care of everything for us including delivery to ensure no problems or issues arose…truly a master of her craft.  We would not hesitate to recommend her services to anyone looking for that special cake.

You were so considerate of what we wanted and we appreciated you taking the time to consult with us first.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! We loved the look of our wedding cake as well as the taste. It was delicious and so many of our guests commented on how amazing it was. You are truly gifted and I look forward to recommending you to friends.

Shannon and Clifton Brooks


Our wedding cake went beyond our expectations and was amazing! We had a very specific blue color to match and Melissa matched it perfectly. She worked with us to design a cake that would stand out, be unique, be simple, and yet very elegant. Melissa took the time to get to know exactly what our needs were and made us the most beautiful cake, even more beautiful than we could have imagined! The amount of detail and level of perfection was exceptional such that we have never seen matched by any other wedding cake. Another amazing part is how delicious and moist the cake was. We are more than excited to eat the top tier that is currently in the freezer for our first anniversary.

I love cake and consider myself to be a cake snob. As a PR professional, I've attended numerous functions and events over the years and I've never had dessert as wonderful and delicious as those crafted by Melissa. I've had the good fortune to taste her cakes, cheesecake and mango pudding and found each one absolutely delightful. Her signature chocolate cake is the best I've ever tasted. EVER! We've ordered it for work functions, birthday parties, and showers and it always satisfies.

We bring a cake in each month for employee birthdays/anniversaries. My sister told me her co-worker brought in a chocolate cake that Melissa had made and it was phenomenal, so I had to order one of Melissa's (soon-to-be) infamous chocolate cakes. This cake is the best I've ever had and a lot of my co-workers are asking for Melissa's number. Needless to say, we are ordering our monthly cake from Melissa from now on and I can't wait to try the rest of her cakes!

Linda The, Access Transport Network Clerk


Melissa, you are a true artist. Thank you for all of the cakes you've made for us over the years....whether for children, baby showers or more formal company occasions, they're all equally amazing and made with the same incredible attention to detail…so many choices, and always delicious!

Melanie Hunt, Senior Manager, Medical Marketing

We’ve attended over thirty weddings in the last five years and usually the wedding cake has been such a disappointment. As all our friends know, we love cake so it was very important for us to serve a cake at our wedding that would be memorable. When we gave Melissa a general guideline as to what we wanted, we knew we could trust her to go beyond our expectations. Our cake not only looked amazing, it also tasted so good! Melissa’s chocolate cake was moist and not too sweet. It was one of the best chocolate cakes we've ever had, and believe us…we've eaten a lot of cake! Now we're looking forward to our first year anniversary so we can take the top tier out of our freezer and have a piece of our wedding cake.

Alyssa and Michael Soong


Melissa, your cakes are the perfect combination of design and taste. You take such extreme care in personalizing your cakes while making it taste great at the same time. Thank you for making my birthday cake this year! The three-layer banana cake with chocolate mousse filling and cream cheese icing was beautiful and by the time we were finished, there wasn't even a crumb left!

Melissa's birthday cakes cannot be described any less than "totally yummy" and with a presentation that is very personalized. For my husband's birthday, Melissa transformed "an idea" into a truly personalized and remarkable cake that not only looks great but more importantly tastes great!

Karen Boodram, Life Sciences Equity Analyst

Melissa, your cakes are bliss. Premium ingredients and your talent have yielded rich and decadent desserts my friends and family talk about even months later. If it wasn’t enough that they taste like heaven, each cake has been a true piece of art.

Wendy Walker

All of my work colleagues and I were genuinely impressed with the outstanding taste and quality of Melissa’s products. Subsequently, I ordered a couple of differently decorated birthday cakes. Again, truly remarkable in both the presentation and the quality of the taste! Our guests absolutely raved about the birthday cakes.

Never underestimate the power of a delicious, decadent, and delightful strawberry cheesecake. Just one slice had magically lightened the mood of my colleagues, a group of pediatric nurses who were physically and emotional exhausted. It was the perfect dessert to end such a stressful and chaotic day. Thanks Melissa - your cheesecake redefined our understanding of wonderful!

Nora Low, Pediatric Registered Nurse
Alberta Children’s Hospital


Every bite of cake is better than the last. I wish I could celebrate everyday with a piece of Melissa's gorgeous cakes!

Wancy Wu, Senior Financial Analyst


What I learned recently is that I don't like dry, tasteless cakes that are mainly just sugar even though they look like they'd taste good, they usually don't. Melissa's cakes are not like this and are very unique. I found them to be very moist and flavourful. So now I know that you can actually enjoy a cake that both looks good and tastes awesome!

Carolyn Price, Science Teacher
Calgary Board of Education


Birthday cakes made for my children were beautifully decorated with much attention paid to details. They not only looked great, but they tasted just as great. Definitely not your run of the mill children's cakes. Not only did the kids love them, so did all the adults. Highly recommended. I am making plans for my next order already.
