Hi! I'm Malissa

I'm an artist who loves cake. I graduated from the USC Roski School of Fine Art with a BA in Fine Art and Italian. In 2008 I began my official culinary journey, working for some of the top cake companies in the US before opening my own San Diego wedding cake studio in 2019.  

 

ARTIST, CREATIVE, LOVER OF ALL THINGS BEAUTIFUL

I thrive on creating custom work. I believe every cake should reflect the host, the celebration, and the people gathering. You are my muse. My goal is to bring out the style that reflects you. That’s my art.  

I’m known for my attention to detail, my unique sugar figurines, my nod to Italy in my menus, and my ability to blend styles, flavors, textures, and architecture into a timeless piece of edible art. Our cakes are memorable in both look and taste. Nutella crunch is a fan favorite but I’m partial to the Snickers flavor - it marries my ultimate love of chocolate and peanut butter! 

I’ve been fortunate enough to be named one of the top wedding cake artists in San Diego, I’ve baked for celebrities and local sport heroes, but it’s my husband and two boys (9 and 11) that are my biggest fans (and toughest clients). When I’m not wrangling kids or crafting cakes, you’ll find me painting or rocking out to K-Pop (I’ve seen BTS live in concert and it was the best!).  

Have a sweet day!
