Melie’s Kitchen

Melie's Kitchen is one perfect reason to celebrate.

It’s not everyday you stumble across a budding baking impresario with such flair for whipping up sweet treats. So it goes without saying, we couldn’t help but sit up, salivate and take note of the newest caker on the block, Amelia Ferrier of Melie’s Kitchen.

Undoubtedly a born and bred baker from a young age, Amelia fell in love with the craft after receiving British chef Annabel Karmel’s Children’s Cookbook on her seventh birthday, subsequently sifting, basting and glazing her way through it and well beyond.

Boasting a backlog of recipes and a contemporary culinary know-how to be admired, Melie’s Kitchen is already making an impression amongst family and friends, sparking more sweet toothed followers on Instagram with every new post. So much so that Amelia has recently begun taking custom cakes orders and customers can browse her newly refined spring menu on her blog, which reads like something straight out of a fairytale. Rosewater and pistachio sponge cake with white chocolate cream cheese icing, topped with rose petals and freeze dried raspberries – need we say more?

Amidst a flurry of diversely varied options on offer for all sorts of celebrations, the banoffee and hazelnut cake is one of her staples. Jazzing up the conventional banana cake, Amelia has added a moreish caramel filling, cream cheese icing, dark chocolate ganache, crumbled pie crust and hazelnuts, artfully decorated with fresh flowers and finished with gold cachou. It’s impressive to say the least. Alongside the conventional cake varieties, Amelia is whipping up everything from Earl Grey spiced mini bundt cakes to vanilla and cinnamon leche frita Julia Child would be proud of – and at 15 years of age, she’s only just begun.
