Festive Celebration Cake
By Melanie Byrne, The Enchanting Merchant Co, for Cake Stuff
Melanie started baking as a child but found her love for cake decorating when she was around 16. She discovered that she could make flowers out of sugar totally by chance whilst playing with a bit of sugarpaste.
After years of working in both the legal and mining industries, cake decorating was something Melanie did to fulfil her creative side. When she started receiving orders from people outside of her family and friends, she decided to open a business to fill in the few hours of the day that she was not working her full time job! It took her a fair few years of learning the business before she made the conscious decision to make this business fulltime, specialising in contemporary wedding cakes and sugar flowers.
Melanie is now based in Fettercairn, Scotland after migrating from Australia. She gets her inspiration for cake designs from everything and anything around her, including fashion, art, architecture, nature and jewellery.
