In this course you can learn how to create three different cake designs at three different skill levels. The Tie-dye cake is the easiest design where you will learn how to use white chocolate ganache to create a tie-dye swirl drip along the top and sides of your cake. The Monster Cake is at a medium level of difficulty where we will pipe a furry texture with buttercream and use cake balls as eyes to create an adorable fluffy monster! The Donut cake is the most difficult design where you will carve a rounded donut shape with cake and top it off with pink ganache icing topped with rainbow sprinkles. With each cake we will go through the entire process step-by-step from baking, to frosting and decorating. By the end of this course you will improve your skill level and have an adorable cake to show off!
Melissa's passion for creating cakes began early on when she was just a teen. She would watch cake shows on TV and thought, "I want to try that!". Instantly she spent all of her free time reading books and searching the web to learn anything she could about cake decorating. She was always an artist, working with paint, clay and fashion design, but when she discovered the art of cake, it became her all time favorite medium to work with.
In 2010, Melissa landed an internship with the Cake Boss, where she learnt the fundamentals of cake decoration. While attending college at Pratt Institute, Melissa studied painting and sculpture; incorporating edible materials into any project she could. After college Melissa turned her passion for cakes into a career, launching Melissa Alt Cakes in 2015.
Since the start of her business Melissa's cakes have been featured in numerous magazines and reached international recognition. She's created cakes for Google, Time Out NYC and Harper’s Bazaar. She won the award for Best Show Cake at the 2017 NY Cake Show. In the spring/summer of 2018 Melissa worked as the Culinary producer for Reality Bites Cupcakes on Food Network. Melissa is also the exclusive cake decorator for Dylan's Candy Bar in NYC.
Melissa's cakes are her art. She strives to create one of a kind artistic creations that form an experience of joy and beauty. When she is not making cakes you can find Melissa cuddling her dog, camping, watching a horror movie or drinking delicious IPA on a rooftop. She is constantly inspired by her surrounding environments and adventures. Each cake Melissa makes is an expression of herself. Extreme passion, dedication and numerous hours are put into every piece of work Melissa creates. Her favorite moment is when the creation is cut and her art becomes delicious cake!
To Melissa there is nothing she loves more than the art of cake and being able to share it with the world :)
