Cherry Blossom Cakes

Our Team

For years Melissa has delighted friends, family and colleges with home made treats before making it her full time profession. Melissa started baking with her mother when she was young and has come along way from the bright pink marshmallow slice they use to make every Sunday (although she still loves things that are pink and sweet, so some things never change). Melissa has studied cake decoration through Planet Cake, one of Australia’s leading cake designers.

Melissa grew up in Hawkes Bay and studied at Victoria University in Wellington before embarking on a career in Human Resources. After moving to London she specialised in Graduate Recruitment for the Investment Banking industry for 5 years. After returning to New Zealand, Melissa decided that the Queenstown area was just too beautiful to live anywhere else.

More recently (2018) little Lucia joined us on this adventure and now takes up all Melissa's time when she is not creating cakes.  Join us on instagram for Lucia's latest baking adventures, not surprisingly she has a love of cupcakes....
