Asheville Wedding Caterer

Melissa Gray
Cakes by Gray

Melissa Gray is an award-winning cake artist whose signature style embodies the Asheville ethos — always breathtaking, sometimes quirky, definitely one of a kind — and absolutely delicious. Her original flavor combinations recently scored her a published recipe in American Cake Decorator Magazine, and now her stunning creations are available for weddings throughout the Asheville area.

Melissa’s classical pastry skills, natural artistic talent, and meticulously precise technique are matched only by her obsession with exquisite taste, divine texture, and continually stretching the limits of what’s possible (with cake).

*It’s not all sugar flowers and buttercream, though! Cakes by Gray also specializes in distinctive dessert bars that feature everything from gourmet cake pops to gummy bears made of wine.
