Mel is the owner and director at 'Velvet Cakehouse'. Mel's passion for cake decorating started with her making cookies for friends childrens birthday's and then moving onto cupcakes. After moving to Sydney in 2010, Mel decided she needed to find a hobby and stumbled across cake decoration classes at two of Sydney's most reknowned Cake Decorating Schools, 'Planet Cake' and 'Whimsical Cakehouse'. Mels training has seen her attend classes taught by Anna Maria Roche, Jessica Pedemont, Linda Harden, Margie Carter, Michelle Rae, Sharon Wee, and Trina Thomson to name a few.
Mel has also been lucky enough to attend a number of courses, with international artists namely Maggie Austin of Maggie Austin cakes, Jacqueline Butler of Petal Sweet, Karen Portaleo and Carlos Lischetti.
