In 2009, I returned from Holland as the first cake designer to offer cake and cupcake courses in Switzerland. The immediate demand for my course offering was extremely high and the courses were quickly sold out. I was privileged to present my special creations on Swiss Television and in multiple magazines in both Switzerland and abroad. Within a short period of time, Melcakes was internationally recognised as the pioneer in cake designs based in Switzerland.
My personal hand made creations are composed mostly of filigrane, complex, intricate and elegant sugar paste flowers and sophisticated details out of sugar. The realistic and artistic creations are often referred to as "sugar haute couture" . Special attention to detail and perfection is given to capturing form, colours, aesthetics and trends.
Upon special request, Mel offers sugar paste flowers and cake design workshops to private individuals and small groups either in their preferred location/school or in her private studio. Public workshops are also offered according to the general course offering posted on the Melcakes website.
Mel is a respected member of the “Artists of Excellence of Satin Ice.”
Want further inspiration? Impressions of the hand made creations can be found on the following pages. Melcakes will bring you to a higher level in designing your personal sugar based flowers and cake designs. Ready to take the next step?
I look forward to hearing from you and meeting you in one of my next workshops soon.
