"The heart behind my workshops is a sincere hope to bring people together and foster a sense of community in a very delicious, educational way!"
The heart behind Sweet Melissa Workshops is a hope to bring people together and foster a sense of community while creating something new. With specially-curated, seasonal projects, you can expect to walk away with valuable instructions, tips, tricks, recipes, and, of course, decadent treats to share at home with family and friends.
In each Workshop, my focus is to create a beautifully-styled, photo-worthy experience. Every participant will be set up at individual stations with all of their materials ready to go, follow along with hands-on guidance, and be able to connect with others in a fun environment.

One of the most fun holiday projects is making & decorating your own festive gingerbread house. In this 28-page PDF guide you'll learn all the tips & tricks for creating your own bespoke masterpiece. Includes 3 different printable house style templates along with the perfect gingerbread and royal icing recipes.
Cake and fresh florals go hand in hand! I’ll walk you through the basics of leveling and assembling a 6-inch layer cake in the ever-popular “naked” style with smooth buttercream frosting. We’ll then prep gorgeous flowers to adorn the top of your cake using floral tape and wires. Simple, natural, and sweet! A cake box will be provided to house your creation to take with you. A memorable activity for bachelorettes, showers, & special birthday celebrations with your favorite people. Available on location to private homes, wineries/distilleries, restaurants, & event spaces.
"An afternoon full of learning, laughs, and cake layers! Melissa did an amazing job taking us step by step in building our layered naked cakes. She made it approachable and first time user friendly. I can take what I learned home with me and apply it to some future cake decorating escapades! Also we got to eat while we worked! (definitely one of my favorite parts) I would recommend for anyone looking to have a fun get together with friends or looking to learn some new baking skills."
"This workshop was very fun and tasty! Had a great time learning how to decorate a cake and use some fancy baking tools. Highly recommend for a girls afternoon or night out. Best part: all the desserts are super yummy and you get to take some goodies home!"
