From Milan to London – Mela Prina’s vision for excellence in cake design

 Chef, caterer, restaurateur and cake connoisseur Mela Prina grew up in the design and fashion capital of the world, Milan, Italy. Although she had always enjoyed cooking with her family, her passion for the culinary arts did not fully emerge until after she had completed her degree in architectural design. Her first role was working as a chef, where she quickly establishing her zeal for using natural and organic ingredients. Then as a haute cuisine caterer she supplied a number of the small clubs and restaurants around Italy.

 Knowing that she still had much to learn she spent a few years working at a number of noted and Michelin-starred restaurants in Europe and America, including Café Armani in Boston, The Ark in London, Dollada in Pieve D'Alpago, Italy and Rocamador in Almendral, Spain.

Her skills rounded, Mela moved back to Italy, to the picturesque town of Sestri Levante on the Italian Riviera where she opened her own restaurant called La Mandrella. Focussing on natural ingredients and unadulterated flavours, her restaurant offered a fusion of modern and traditional Ligurian cuisine.

 On moving to London Mela set up Kicca Cakes, which combines three of her culinary passions: to use only the finest ingredients, to create something wondrous and unique every time, and to see her creations bring happiness and joy to her clients.

 Such is the quality of her work that Mela’s cakes are regularly featured in magazines and ordered by top London hotels and have been the centrepieces at many a wedding, birthday and corporate event. Her attention to detail and devotion to her art ensures that every exquisitely fashioned cake tastes as good as it looks and adheres to any dietary or design requirements that you may have.
