Sticky Date, Pumpkin Pie, Pina Colada, French Toast, Pink Lemonade, Baileys Baby, Creme Brulee, Feijoa, Strawberry Shortcake ...are just a tiny portion of the innovative flavours on offer from Miss Melicious. She has managed to corner a section of the cupcake market and claim it as her own with word of mouth for delicious cupcakes resulting in daily queues out the door at her Auckland store. Only opening the store in December 2011, Missy sells out of stock nearly every day and has over 4700 avid followers on Facebook. Missy's individual style and flare is both beautiful and surprising, with each cupcake looking as delightful as it is delicious. Jam-packed with recipes predominately for cupcakes, but including some whoopie pies and cookies, this gorgeous cookbook will be bursting with retro goodness for the home baker.
A background in fashion and sales, years and years of volunteering in events and having learnt all her crafty skills from her mother from a very young age, Missy has always been passionate about creating and styling. Friends and family are always asking her to help with party planning, designing and constructing creative and delicious treats and from birth she has been a total bossy britches, so I guess you could say she has had the organising bug as far back as she can remember. So after having her 3 daughters she decided to do something about it professionally and Miss Melicious was born. With the support of her husband, mother, family and friends along the way the idea grew bigger and bigger and will continue to morph until she reaches total world domination ... or at least meets Oprah!!!
