High price, major disappointment
I ordered a custom cake that would feed 8-10 people and was quoted $140. I received the cake and while it looks very cute, I was extremely disappointed with the size. The cake meant to feed 8-10 people was 5". How do you feed 8-10 adults with a 5" cake? I explained to Melanie I was disappointed, and the response I received was essentially a math lesson telling me how to cut the cake so each person gets a ration of 1.5" of cake. Outside of the math lesson, this cake will NOT feed 8-10 adults.
This is what $140 gets you at Melanie's Cakes. Please find somewhere else to get a cake if you're looking to feed more than yourself and maybe one other person. The size of her cakes are laughable, and you will not be able to feed your wedding party at all, unless of course you ration them on cake. Got to make sure no one takes more than their rationed 1.5 inches. So disappointing!Sent on 30/01/2021

We did a two tier cake, one layer carrot and 2nd layer vanilla. Both were great but the carrot cake is SO good! So happy I listened to the other reviews which mentioned this. Melanie was quick to respond and easy to work with. Would recommendSent on 29/10/2020

Delicious Macarons and Cake
Melanie was lovely! Everyone was impressed with the cake topper that we had and only wished that we'd ordered more. Melanie is very talented, listened to our vision and executed it very well. Thank you!!Sent on 15/12/2019

Love love loved my cake
My guests and wedding venue were so shocked when they saw we chose carrot cake as our wedding cake and everyone loved it. Carrot cake is really hard to nail perfectly and Melanie did. Melanie was so easy to work with, she worked within my budget to give me exactly what I wanted, and most of all her cakes tasted amazing. I couldn’t believe how many other vendors told me to call them if my budget increased bc they couldn’t help me. Horrible service. Our hardest choice in the whole process was choosing flavours. Thanks MelanieSent on 09/12/2018
Melanie's Cakes's reply:Thank you so much Nurisha! I pride myself in trying to work within a couples budget to the best of my abilities while still meeting their dreams. I am so glad I could help you and create you a beautiful and delicious cake! I wish you all the best in your life together!

We requested a small two-tier cake and 24 cupcakes for our wedding with a succulent theme. Unfortunately for us, we were so busy on our day we didn't get to see the final cupcakes or taste the cake. But we tasted them prior and had compliments, so we're assuming everything went well. Melanie was lovely and we got to meet her during our tasting. Cake tasted great then, at least! Really wished we had a picture of the cupcakes at least.Sent on 23/01/2020
Melanie's Cakes's reply:Thank you Eugenie for the review! I am sorry I also didn't get a chance to take a photo of the cupcakes either and it is too bad your photographer didn't either as I would have loved to see them all set up at the late night station. I am glad your guests enjoyed them though!!

The dessert bar of our dreams!
Melanie's Cakes exceeded our expectations! Melanie created the dessert bar of our dreams - which included cupcakes, cookies, cinnamon buns, and more! Each and every dessert was delicious - especially the wedding carrot cake (... it was the most talked about "event" of the night).Sent on 09/08/2019
We could not have asked for a better wedding dessert baker! Thank you Melanie!
Melanie's Cakes's reply:Thank you Marysia for allowing me to apart of yours and Stephen's special day. It was fun being able to provide all of your favourite dessert in one display. I wish you both an amazing and happy life together!
