From carefully selecting each ingredient, to endless recipe testing, there is so much love, thought and care that goes into each and every one of our desserts.

From life’s biggest milestones, to the sweet little moments you’ll never forget (and everything in-between), our “classic desserts with a twist” are just the things to sweeten up any event worth celebrating.

Our Mission

As a small business with the opportunity to make a difference, we take pride in giving back to our incredibly talented staff and local community. Through job training partnerships with JobPath, Emma’s Torch, Hot Bread Kitchen as well as food donation channels, we seek to develop a diverse culinary team with a conscience.

Women Owned, Sister Owned

Starting at age six mixing pastry dough alongside their Viennese grandma, Melanie’s childhood baking hobby steadily grew into an obsession. While attending Northwestern University, Melanie studied in Paris at La Sorbonne and was Sous Chef at Cours de Cuisine atelier. She later attended the Institute of Culinary Education and honed her craft in the Michelin-starred kitchens of Babbo and Blue Hill at Stone Barns, where she was Head Baker and Pastry Sous Chef.

Melanie’s desserts have been recognized in the 2016 New York City Michelin guide, and in 2018, Melanie became Champion of a special-themed chocolate competition on Food Network’s CHOPPED. In September 2021, Melanie competed against Beat Bobby Flay again on Food Network in a chocolate challenge and wowed Bobby with her chocolate truffles and chocolate eclair.


Human rights lawyer turned entrepreneur, Diana brings passion for flawless operations and delivering superior service to Mini Melanie’s customers.

Prior to Mini Melanie, Diana ran various sales and operations teams over the course of eight years at Onefinestay, a hospitality startup now part of Accor Hotels. She graduated from Emory University and lived and worked in London.

Diana always has Mini Melanie dessert on her all around town, and her daughter and son can’t get enough of our truffles and brownies.


Mini Melanie was founded in 2015 by Melanie and Diana Moss. Growing up as close as sisters can be, in a family where dessert is everything, Melanie and Diana always had complementary skill sets but never dreamed they’d be business partners. Their separate paths before Mini Melanie built an incredible foundation for their partnership.

After working for other people (mostly men!), they decided to form a business where we can express our creativity by producing an excellent, unforgettable product. With so many options out there on the desserts market, you can count on the Moss sisters for all your luxurious dessert and gifting needs.

For the Moss Family, baking is a truly family affair!
