About Bakers Cottage Cakes
Originally from Seattle Washington, Michelle spent time as a little girl in the kitchen of her grandmother’s restaurant located on Suquamish Reservation. “Grandma was famous for her pies. The passion for entertaining and creating sweet treats for family and friends was instilled in me from an early age".
Michelle acquired her degree from Metropolitan Institute of Interior Design in New York before starting a family. But she continuously found herself drawn to the culinary arts, which eventually lead to her pursuing a degree in Baking and pastry.
A formally trained pastry chef, Michelle completed her degree with an externship working for the Swan and Dolphin under award winning Executive Pastry Chef Laurent Branlard. "Working for Chef Laurent was by far the best professional experience I could have asked for".
Immediately following her graduation, Michelle became the head pastry chef for Foodie Catering located in Orlando. Always a fan of cake artistry, Michelle caught the 'cake bug' when the opportunity to create a huge cake presented itself. "Soon after, a family friend asked me if I would make the desserts and cake for her wedding. That was pretty much it for me. I was hooked and had found my calling”.
In August of 2015 Michelle took a leap of faith and started
Bakers Cottage Cakes.
"With cake artistry I can combine my knowledge of design and pastry. I cannot believe how incredible it feels to have this opportunity to work personally with clients in creating cakes and desserts for such important milestones in my clients lives. It is such an honor for me".

"My name is Jennifer and I had a destination wedding in Downtown Disney this past November. I live in NJ and worked with Michele though emails and one phone call. She was so sweet, and funny... we actually had some good conversation and laughs lol. I provided a picture of what I was looking for and let her go with it... in the end I had no idea what my cake would look like till the day of my wedding but, I couldn't have been happier... everyone loved it!!!! looks, creativity, style, taste etc.. Would highly recommend Bakers Cottage Cakes and look forward to using her again for other family events.

"Michelle did an amazing job on a Southern Bridal Brunch for my niece's shower. Some of the menu items were mini pancakes with pecan praline topping, shitake mushroom cheese grits, lavender infused southern biscuits with ham, fruit compote, and petite lemon cupcakes. All was incredibly delicious and my niece was overwhelmed with the overall beauty of Michelle's presentation. Can't recommend her more highly!

Michelle was very accommodating when meeting with my husband and I, I am a nurse and my schedule is all over the place. She met with us on her days off and late at night. I highly recommend her!"
