What began as a mere hobby in Melissa's cozy kitchen corner soon transformed into something extraordinary. The first platform? Selling baked wonders at work. As the aroma of fresh pastries wafted through the office, Melissa found unexpected fans in coworkers. Their love and appreciation became the fuel to the fire of Melissa's passion.
With grit and determination, and perhaps a touch of naivety in the early days, Melissa embarked on the road to professional baking. In 2011, she introduced the world to "Dulce Divine", a name that would resonate with only a few. As the years passed and skills refined, 2017 saw the metamorphosis into "Taste Your Dreams", reflecting the evolution of her craft and vision.

Each day was a canvas for learning - from observing the masters to personally practicing with intricate designs. Melissa has always set the bar high, both personally and professionally. Doubts and skepticism from others only ignited her competitive spirit. Proving naysayers wrong wasn't just a desire; it was a thrilling mission.

As time flowed, Melissa's bond with the world of baking and pastry artistry deepened. The initial anxiety of venturing into uncharted techniques evolved into confidence and finesse. And as Melissa was once guided by seasoned bakers, today she passionately passes on the craft to budding enthusiasts.

Above all, Melissa perceives Gods divine touch in this journey. For every hurdle, every moment of uncertainty, was but a dot in God's majestic painting. He envisioned not just a baker, but an artist, a mentor, a story-teller. And the cherry on top? Being lovingly nicknamed: "Missy Cakes" by her mother, a nickname that today epitomizes Melissa's dedication, love, and artistry in the world of baking.

Psalms 37:4 - Delight yourself in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.
