Sweet Treats Made With Love
Meli-Ann Designs was created from a love of family and food. We know how special it is to celebrate a milestone with loved ones and want to ensure our delicious treats compliment your special event.
Meli-Ann Designs offers custom made cakes, cupcakes, cake pops, cookies, high tea’s and sweet treats. Our unique cakes and sweets are freshly prepared with quality ingredients and are ideal birthday cakes, engagement cakes, christening cakes, baby shower cakes, anniversary cakes, wedding cakes or corporate cakes.
With a background in Marketing, I have always thrived on creativity and bringing an idea to fruition. When my eldest child was born, it became my mission to create an awesome birthday cake for him. I spent that first year practicing and when the year rounded out, I not only created him a special cake, but I also made the big decision to shift my career to something a little sweeter.
From the moment I launched Meli-Ann Designs, my focus has always been on creating the best possible products for my clients. I am continually monitoring industry trends, I work with leading pastry chefs to hone my baking skills and participate in on-line and in-person training seminars to strengthen my skills.
I take so much pride in creating a sweet treat that will be the highlight of their event, but I particularly love to see the smile on their face when they first see what I have created.

What Our Client Says
“Thank you for such an amazing cake. We loved it and it was quite the surprise and very fitting. It was delicious”
- Themed Cake
“Thank you to the very talented Mel for sticking to our theme and creating this masterpiece”
“Thank you, thank you, thank you! His smile said it all… your cake “made” the party. All the Japanese guests were amazed at how well you blended the elements of culture and tradition with “kawaii” cuteness, they said it was absolutely perfect.
I am so glad I came to you, the attentive and patient way you’ve handled everything, it’s been a great pleasure (and a great relief too) dealing with you from the very start.
Oh, and the cake tasted fantastic too. The birthday boy is still thanking me!”
- 60 TH Birthday
“I just want to commend Melissa for her cake making skills. My 30th Ski Boot Birthday was one to remember! Melissa was able to create the cake of my dreams which looked and tasted amazing. Chocolate and coconut for the win! This cake was the highlight for the evening, everyone was blown away with the level of detail. Melissa took my budget into account and understood my need. Out of the 5 cake makers I looked into, Meli-Ann Designs is professional, high-end quality and by far produces an exceptional product”
- Ski Boot
“Melissa recently made an amazing Harry Potter cake for our daughters 7th birthday! The details, quality and service were just fantastic! This is the third time we have used Meli-Ann Designs for birthday cakes and Melissa never disappoints. Thank you!”
