Panda Mini Cake Party 
We had an Elegant Cakes party for my daughter's 11th birthday. * 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
Tiffany cupcake party.
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

Celebration cake- 5th Birthday
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.

Celebration Cake- Beatles Cake for 50th birthday- surprise
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 cutting/eating it…but I think it will be gone tomorrow!
Regards – Jenny Drysdale.

Cupcake party- 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

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 too- 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

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!!

Thank you so much.

So thank you.  You were very calm and patient and lovely.  Kind regards  Jo x www.facebook.com/violetandrose

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

Celebration cake- 2nd Birthday

"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"

I have had Elegant Cakes and Party Dates create something for four occasions now. Every time I am delighted with the result and it is always well beyond what I expected. Its a joy to deal with someone who knows exactly what to do even with the basic amount of information I give there is always an amazing work of art at the end, that often looks too good to eat!!!  Fiona.  Doncaster East


Thank you Melissa for the cake, everyone loved it- it tasted beautiful and looked great! Everyone has asked where I brought it from and how the photos were done. I'm not sure if you got some pictures of it, so I've enclosed a couple for you to show off your handy work! Thanks again,

To dear Melissa,
Thank you so much for the very special "Nativity Scene", chocolate mud cake. We had a Christmas lunch for 60 people which included some of our elderly folk and some residents of the Manningham Centre Aged Care facility. I took the cake around to show each table and they all thought it was fantastic and that you were very clever. The cake was delicious also. May you and your family have a most blessed Christmas.
God bless, Love in Christ,

Hi Melissa,
The cake turned out wonderfully! So beautiful and very tasty too!
We will keep the top layer and try to follow your instructions as best as possible. I think it should keep very well as it tasted like you put plenty of brandy in :-)

"I was thrilled that Elegant Cakes and Party Dates could make my cake for my 40th Birthday party. I left the design up to Melissa giving her the theme from my party invitation. I wanted a surprise and I was so pleased when she revealed the cake in the box - it was magnificent! I had not expected such a marvellous cake. Not only did it look amazing but it tasted delicious as well. A very moist chocolate mud that we were happy to snack on for days after (not that there was much left!)
Thanks for taking such good care of me on my Birthday it was one less thing to worry about." Vickie Burkinshaw. Box Hill



Hi Melissa,
