Meet Vanessa

Hi, I'm Vanessa.

Welcome to Pastel and Bloom!

I started my cake journey in 2009 - by accident really!

My sister-in-law had given birth to her first beautiful cherub, Ava, and her birthday was soon approaching. I had no idea what to get her. I soon came across cake decorating classes in our area and thought - what a lovely idea... To get a new Mummy out of the house once a week for just a few hours.

I fell completely in love!

I soon become completely enthralled in the world of cake, enrolling in decorating classes around Melbourne.

My obsession with flowers started well before that though... I had to have fresh flowers in the house at all times, marvelling in their ability to brighten up any room, and my mood!

So once I had really began to sink my teeth into cakes, I decided to enrol into floristry school. Bringing those two passions together created what Pastel and Bloom is today.


Pastel and Bloom embodies all that I love in cake and floral form. And with this ever growing industry I strive to create new and exciting designs that are not only amazing on the outside but taste amazing too!

Every cake creation and floral arrangement is customised specifically to each client and their event. I love how each creation can be a reflection of the celebration and as unique as the client it was made for.

Jump on my contact page and send me all the info for your special event and I'll send through a quick quote!

You can also check out my work on the official Pastel and Bloom Facebook and Instagram pages.
