My name is Melisa, and I am the owner, baker, designer, and all around one-woman-show of Sweet By Design Cakes. Sweet By Design is a cottage bakery operating by appointment only in Melissa, Texas and serving the entire Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex.
I started taking cake decorating classes over a decade ago because I'm that type A kind of gal who just HAD to make her daughter's first birthday cake. I jokingly blame Sweet By Design on her because I found my passion in making that first "real" cake. I gained a small clientele and decided to continue my education in the culinary world by enrolling in the Pastry Arts program at Collin College. That was over 10 years ago, and the mixer has been running ever since!
