A Letterkenny cake maker is enjoying a big slice of success after winning the 'Best Bridal Cakes' award from North West Brides.

Mel Rodriguez is new to the wedding scene, but this award was just the icing on the cake for her popular service.

Originally from the Philippines, she has been living in Letterkenny with her family for the past 17 years. Not only is Mel a showstopping baker, but she’s a nurse with 25 years of experience and a diploma in Intensive Care.

Mel tells DW about her cake studio: “Like so many cake decorators who started this business as a hobby, friends and family continued to want more. That’s when I decided to set up the business. It is based in Letterkenny, serving local weddings and the surrounding county as well.

“Classic to contemporary design, no cake is too big or small to make your Wedding day truly stand out!”

Mel helps couples put their vision into reality by using only locally sourced ingredients and skill to create bespoke cakes.

She also specialises in custom made cakes for Christening, Communion, Birthday, Anniversary and any other occasion you wish to celebrate with the finest of cakes.

Mel’s one piece of advice for wedding couples is not to wait to book your cake.

“Don’t wait until later to see me for a free consultation if you want one,” she said.
