Featured Baker: Melissa Holiday

Melissa grew up in Hot Springs Arkansas, moved to Dallas two years ago and recently bought a home in Garland TX.

Melissa won the BEST OVERALL AMATEUR CUPCAKE in Cupcake Camp Dallas 2011, and promises to bring some great cupcakes again this year.  She was elated to take hope a trophy, but really enjoyed seeing the creative ideas and tasting cupcakes from throughout the metroplex.

A tip from the champ: “A great cupcake takes patience: making sure the ingredients are measured properly, filling those little pans just so then waiting for them to cool completely so you can properly frost. Also, Freezer bag+Scissors=piping bag!”
