Chef Melissa is truly talented. She made us our rehearsal dinner "grooms cake" and our wedding cake. Both came out phenomenally!! My husband was a gluten allergy and she catered to that with ease. You couldn't even tell the difference! When we came to her house for a cake tasting, she had to most adorable display and really made us feel so excited and special! I will be using her in the future for any cakes I need!

I would contact Chef Melissa to arrange a tasting or if you are out-of-state like I was; ask for samples. Samples are free just pay for s/h. Having tasted her deliciousness (flavorful, not sugary sweet), we had a hard time deciding which flavors to choose so we decided on cupcakes and 4 flavors. I researched the bakers listed on the DJ's website http:/www.positivevibes.net and created a document with pictures indicating what I liked. (By the way, the DJ was AWESOME). Chef Melissa and I were engaged in constant communications working on getting my vision and concept correct. We made arrangements to meet and drop off supplies when I arrived in Virginia Beach; for Chef Melissa was going to decorate the cake table.
Come to find out, my cousins use Chef Melissa all the time for family birthdays.
All I can say is that Chef Melissa did not disappoint. My vision was beaconing from the cake table; it was right on point.
We had Chef Melissa create a sunken treasure chest as our personal cake and it looked so authentic... kudos.
But the most amazing feat was she did all this during Hurricane Matthew. VB had no electricity for the majority of the day along with flooded streets and closed roadways. For someone who delivered and created a masterful display on a day of chaos and uncertainty; Chef Melissa deserves a rating higher than a 5, especially on dependability and creativity.
Rave reviews on the white chocolate keylime.
Also her gift to you is a packaged anniversary cake ready to freeze for next year. This way the cake you order can all be eaten.

My wedding cake was perfect and everything I wanted it to be. The colors were spot on and the design was gorgeous. All the wedding guests raved about how great the cake tasted. Each layer was a different flavor and all were excellent. She worked with me to be budget friendly. The delivery was efficient and timely. Overall I had an excellent experience with Melissa and thoroughly enjoyed meeting and working with her. I would highly recommend the Gourmet Bake Shoppe.

Chef Melissa won my husband, mother, myself over when we did our taste testing. My husband doesn't like cake, so we had struck out at every other bakery we went to. When we tasted Chef Melissa'a cake, he was in LOVE! I knew instantly she was our baker! We had a love birds theme, so Chef Melissa made us a birdcage cake in 4 flavors. Not only was the cake beautiful and everything we wanted it to be, but our guests couldn't stop raving about how delicious it was! We will definitely be using Gourmet Bake Shoppe again!

Melissa is the absolute best. From the time we met at a Bridal show until my cake was delivered. She was so good now she is considered part our family and we asked her to be a guest at the reception and she was right there. She did our Wedding Cake and the Grooms cake and we absolutely loved it. She did an exact replica of the truck I wanted for him. And what she delivered blew my mind. We were married September 3, 2016 and we are still getting calls about our cakes. I would refer her to any and everybody.
