Cake Architect

Founder Michelle Ali is known as the Cake Architect due to the incredible quality of her work and the high standards at which she runs and manages Sweet Commissions.

The tasks involved with such artistic creations combined with Michelle's vast background knowledge and preferred vocabulary lends itself to the more suitable title of 'architect' rather than cake 'decorator' or 'maker'. One could argue that the blending of specific ingredients to produce the desired outcome (the process of baking) is a science. One is not simply a 'baker'. Therefore, it can easily be understood that constructing a cake, designing a form, moulding the outcome especially that of a complex nature is more than just 'decorating'. Mathematical calculations as to size, weight and balance in the composition of a cake requires skill.

The Cake Architect has not been trained in the conventional ways. Much to the surprise of many she has studied for not one but two degrees that have introduced her to many areas of art and design including fine art, sculpture, graphics and fashion. The second degree focused on interior design. Her skills are truly remarkable and completely transferrable. She doesn't need moulds, she'll sculpt it, don't waste time on stencils she will hand paint the font. It does not matter if it hasn't been done before, she does not follow or watch what others do. It doesn't help competition that she's a very quick learner, her company caters to dietary needs and is open to incorporating the client's own recipes, a unique personal service.

Sweet Commissions has reached the status it has without ever having advertised. The Cake Architect's professional reputation is unmatched. It has been a blessing rather than a curse that she has no preconceptions of what cannot be done, her perspective is really quite unique. Introducing completely edible cakes where others could not, challenging structures and lets not even get started on the level of detail she demands. With such high standards and a vision like no other, she cannot work with just anybody. Quickly becoming known worldwide by word of mouth alone, she is definitely one to watch.
