Liam’s 4th Birthday
Hi Melissa,
The cake was outstanding-everyone was commenting on how beautiful it was both in taste and decoration. I can’t thank you enough. Many thanks again, Louise

Hi Melissa

Ava had an amazing time.  It was such a fabulous party.  Thank you so much and also thank you to Jessica.
The girls all had a great time and their mums have been so proud of what they created and said the cakes tasted great – which we agree with as well 🙂

Cheers
Fiona


Hi Melissa, Isabella and her friends enjoyed the party very much. The party definitely lived up to expectations. Thank you, Deb.


Hi Melissa,
The cake was fantastic thank you so much!! We are now enjoying our honeymoon in fiji!!! Thanks again Stephanie


Thanks Melissa,  She had a great party and all reports from her school friends have been that they had a great time too. It was something different to the typical party they have at this age and made them feel a little bit grown up. Thanks again for your patience and organisation!

I would definitely recommend your services Michelle


Abby and the girls were so happy and excited about the beautiful cakes they made. Thanking you so very much Cheers, Sarah, Rowville


Hi it’s Aida you have done a cake for me recently. We loved how you did my sons WWE stuff.

Thanks.

Hi Melissa,
Thank you very much for you email. We liked the cake very much thank you. Arvin loved it and he couldn’t wait to take the trains out 😀
I have attached couple of photos for your interest. Just as a small feedback, I think the cake would become a perfect one if it was just a little bigger specially in the height. But overall, we enjoyed it very much. Thanks!
Cheers,

Ghazaleh


Omg Melissa – it’s awesome!!! I have to take a pic of it in the morning before we leave. I’ll keep the bag as a little keepsake. I still have the elephant from her baptism/1st bday & it withstood our major renovations & neglect. I’ll just add it to the Melissa keepsake box!! Thank – you soo soo much!!!  Cheers


Celebration cake- 1st Birthday

Hi Melissa,

The party was great! The monkey was the star of the show. I was so sad to have to cut him up! Had to behead the poor thing! And the cake was delicious. Thank you so much. Kind regards, Alex Doncaster


Thank you so much for the cookies yesterday. Hopefully the dance school will raise enough money today at the cake stall to send some of the older students to the U.S. Again, thanks for baking and decorating some amazing cookies.
Kind regards
Chris

Hi Melissa,

 Thank you for your care and patience and individual attention of each of the girls.

So Oct next year expect another booking from us!!!!!Thanks again, it was a pleasure to meet you and have you in our home.We wish you well with your business and will be recommending to our friends for sure.

Celebration cake- 2nd Birthday

 

Hi Melissa,

Ava loved her cake. I have taken raa raa & hufty off & kept them. She knows where they are & keeps having a tantrum coz she wants to play with them! Need to find her another distraction. Apparently the million & 1 toys she received is not enough! Everyone loved the cake as usual! It was mauled!! I told them I made it myself, but they kept saying “was it the same lady that made her 1st birthday cake..” Sorry I didn’t get a chance to meet you & made hubbie pick up the cake instead. Anyway, many thanks for such a gorgeous cake, couldn’t be happier. You have a great talent!! Chris


 

Mini Cake Party- Rainbow cakes

Hi Melissa, The kids loved it and enjoyed it and the parents were impressed! the kids were talking about it for the next couple of days. Thank you very much, and will pass ur details on to the ladies. Thank you Nada


Thanks for another great cake. It blew everyone away Ralph



I contacted Melissa with only a week before my daughter’s 2nd birthday, hoping she might be able to make her cake at such late notice. After a couple of quick emails I was assured it could be done. And the end result was magnificent! I can’t describe how happy we were with it and exactly like my invite i sent her as a guide. All of the guests raved about it, and she may have a few referrals:) Melissa is an absolute professional and I recommend her to anyone looking for that special cake. I look forward to the next time.. Ann-Marie


My grandson was born 10 years ago and for every birthday since Melissa at Elegant Cakes has produced a spectacular themed birthday cake for him. I would not consider going anywhere else for my celebration cakes. This year was my 70th birthday, and of course Melissa produced another spectacular cake for the event. If you are in the market for a celebration cake I highly recommend Elegant Cakes. Melissa will ensure that your celebration cake is the topic of conversation at any event. Lorraine – one extremely happy customer! J

Lucy’s 13th Tiffany Cupcake Decorating Party

Hi Melissa,
The party was fantastic, and we still have one of the decorative tops from Lucy’s cake! The cake you made was absolutely fantastic, so nice and dense, without being too rich. It was tempting to tell the family that we made it, but they would have never believed it!
You’ve got a great business going on and I wish you all the best- I’ll certainly let friends know if they’re looking for a party idea.
Cheers, Lisa -Ivanhoe

Thank you Melissa, The kids had great fun. Michelle- Carnegie


Hi Melissa, Thank you so much. The girls loved decorating their cakes.  We couldn’t believe how quiet they were (didn’t stay like that once they started eating!).  I loved how they each put their own individual little twist on their cakes.  When their parents came to pick them up, they couldn’t believe what they had created. So thank you.  You were very calm and patient and lovely.  Kind regards  Jo x www.facebook.com/violetandrose  (Jo sells lovely Soy Candles) Ringwood

Cupcake workshop- Under the sea

We arranged for Elegant Cakes and Party Dates to come into our office and facilitate a cupcake decorating activity. This was part of our annual Children’s Day event. Elegant Cake and party Dates were able to cater for 22 boys and girls aged between 4-12 years of age. Children were able to follow Melissa’s instructions and were so able to show off their own creativity. The event was well received by the children and the parents were very happy to take home some of their creations. kind regards, Jayne- Baker and McKenzie, Melbourne

Beatles Cake for 50th birthday

Hi Melissa, He was very happy with the cake – He got a Beatles T Shirt, Beatles picture in frame, Talking John Lennon Doll – and a Texan Guitar as played by Paul McCartney on Yesterday….so I can literally say that the cake was the “icing on the cake” for this Beatles nut!!! Thanks so much. We still have the drum intact and he is having trouble as he doesn’t want to cut/eat it…but I think it will be gone tomorrow! Regards Jenny Drysdale, Yea.


 Hi Mel
It was really yummy. Aiden hasn’t taken to cakes so he was indifferent about it. We loved it though.

Stunning job, as always Melissa. Everyone raved about the cake. I thought I’d send some pics from her party today. They had decorated the room where they had the food so beautifully that it just looked so perfect. Thanks again! Toby’s 2nd birthday is coming up in August and am thinking ‘farmyard’ (he loves tractors):) So may be in touch a bit later. Ann-Marie, Preston.

Panda Mini Cake Party for Nina’s 11th Birthday

We had an Elegant Cakes party for my daughter’s 11th birthday. 8 girls made absolutely gorgeous panda cakes and everyone had a really good time. Melissa is wonderfully gentle and low key, keeping them engaged and ensuring that high spirits didn’t get out of control, without ever losing patience and focus. Each girl managed a really excellent result as Melissa took them step by step, and explained how to do everything very thoroughly. I would highly recommend to anyone with creative daughters, it was just right for mine. Julie, North Fitzroy.

Celebration cake- 1st birthday

Hi Melissa,

Thank you so, so much for your hard work. Everyone commented on the cake. I’m eating a slice as I type (my 5th slice – 100% fat free didn’t you say?). The cake turned out perfect! Even the chef at the Club commented on how soft it was to cut. He said it was one of the best made cakes he had seen in ages. He has left me the top tier and yes the little flower on top was just right! I just want to thank you once again. You will definitely hear from me again, plus all my family & friends now have your details too!!

Cheers

Chris xx

Everyone loved the design of the cake and ESPECIALLY the chocolate cake. You did such a great job.  It is a shame I didn’t get to meet you. Thank you for dropping it off and baking the cake for me.
There is no doubt I will contact you in future to bake more cakes. Cheers,  Jamie. Venue in Camberwell,  Victoria


 


I had a wonderful night! Thank you so much for the cake! The design was beautiful and it tasted delicious. I asked a few people if they could tell it was vegan and they all said no!

Decorating Tiffany Cupcakes
Tiffany cupcake party for Lexie’s 13th Birthday

We recently had a cupcake decorating party for my daughter Lexie’s 13th birthday. Lexie and 8 of her friends decorated Tiffany themed cupcakes. All the girls loved it, especially Lexie who loves baking and cake decoration. It was totally “her” and she is still talking about what a great time she had! Melissa was wonderful to deal with and was very patient teaching the finer points of decorating cupcakes to young teenage girls. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Melissa and her wonderful business. She also made a cake for Lexie to share with her friends and it was delicious! Thank you Melissa. Narelle Cilia, Wonga Park.
