Baking started as a hobby for Michelle. Year after year, she was baking cakes and goodies for her friends and family. As her passion for baking grew into more than just a hobby, she decided to step out of her comfort zone and start a home business focusing on cakes, known as YUMaste. She’s travelled the world for inspiration and recently went to Denpasar, Indonesia to learn the textured signature buttercream painting style from the creator of Sweet Bloom Cakes. Travelling allows Michelle to taste the wonders of the world and bring back ideas to recreate.
YUMaste has allowed her to explore her creativity in creating a few signature recipes like the popular Earl Grey, Sticky Toffee Pudding & Black Sesame Cake. In addition, she views her cakes as an artistic outlet and she has created her own signature decorating style. She is also always creating options that work for those with gluten-free diet and/or vegan lifestyle.
Other than decorating cakes as a passion, you can find Michelle behind the counter as a pharmacist, teaching yoga at your local yoga studio or galavanting the world!
