The Yellow Sugar Fairy is a home-based Richmond cake studio started by Melina Ng, baker and cake designer. Her passion for baking started at a young age, while she curiously watched her Mom, Margarita bake cakes and Chinese buns in their little humble kitchen.
Soon after graduating from the Baking & Pastry Arts Program at The Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts in Granville Island (April 2006), Melina and her family faced devastating news that her Mother was diagnosed with cancer. Without hesitation she quit her baking job to be along side her ailing Mother, who is now in heaven. Since then, Melina has worked at fine bakeshops and French patisseries in West Vancouver.
Even though Melina enjoyed her working environment, it became apparent to her that she had a growing desire to decorate cakes with her own artistic style. With the support of her older sister, Melissa (The Fairy’s Business Manager), they started The Yellow Sugar Fairy. Melina now specializes in custom designed cakes for all occasions (birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, bridal & baby showers etc.). Although she operates from the comfort of her home, her kitchen is well-equipped and she is able to create decadent and unique cakes, using the finest and freshest ingredients and applying her heart & artistic flare to every cake. Melina dedicates The Yellow Sugar Fairy to her beloved Mom, her forever inspiration and strength in life!
