At Melissa's Simply Sweets, visions become reality. Rarely will a customer hear "no" when making a request as Melissa believes that celebrations are the best part of life and she aims to make each and every one memorable.
Melissa's Simply Sweet is a custom bakery where each dessert is baked from scratch. All recipes are tweaked according to diet restrictions. Melissa is an expert in providing completely nut-free products - her son is allergic to all nuts on contact so she is very sensitive to this allergy. She works with gluten free, dairy free and soy free allergies as well.
Melissa Moes is a graduate from the Culinary/Hotel Management School in Santa Barbara, CA. Since making her son's custom Blue's Clues birthday cake in 2005, she became inundated with requests from friends to create custom cakes for their parties and events. Along the way she discovered her passion was for desserts. After years of making cakes on the side, in 2010 Melissa's passion snowballed into a full-time business. She is a proud baker for Icing Smilies Foundation, which delivers cakes to critically ill children and their siblings.
Perennial favorites include the chocolate chip cookies, chocolate cake and red velvet cake.
Melissa's Simply Sweet requires a minimum of two weeks notice to place an order. They require a 50 percent deposit for orders over $100 to secure the reservation, and the balance is due seven days prior to pick-up.
When a customer calls or emails to discuss their order, Melissa will go over different ideas to make sure each customer receives the best dessert for their event. They do provide tastings for larger type events such as a wedding and bar/bat mitzvahs if needed. Tastings are $50 and if the customer places their order that charge is credited from their bill.
Cupcake tower rentals are available for $45.

"My cake was amazing. I explained what I wanted and she nailed it. So pretty I didn't want to cut it. We had a tasting and had 4 flavors and had a hard time choosing as they were all fabulous. I let the groom pick the flavor. All our guests love it and asked what bakery we ordered from. What a great compliment!" - Wedding Wire
