Is it safe to say tis the season to get married? I don’t know about yall, but my social media timeline is filled with wedding pictures and videos. Now, a wedding will not be complete without a gorgeous, gorgeous wedding cake, wouldn’t it? Choosing the right baker for your wedding cake is crucial. But if you haven’t checked out bakers yet, we suggest tapping “follow” on all these 5 accounts for maximum gawking (and hopefully limited drooling!). Without further ado, here are 6 Miri home-bakers that churn out show-stopping cakes daily.
1. Just Another Guy Who Bakes – The Dessertology
First, on the list, we have The Dessertology! The master baker behind this brand is Idzhar Zahir, better known as Idji who was a Civil engineer graduate. He once said that baking was never on his list for an everyday job. Now, you know how they say “Never say never.”? Today, Idji is one of the home-bakers in Miri who specializes in Modern wedding cakes. Being in trend and seizing the moment is Idji’s strong suit. I’ll add in the pictures, and you be the judge!
It has only been 2 years for Idji, who started baking a few months after the first MCO. It’s amazing what one can achieve in just 2 years of learning and obedience in following recipes. As Idji would say:
“People who love baking, really love baking. For them, the perfect Sunday involves whipping together a cake. Baking doesn’t require a lot of skill or intuition. If you have a good recipe, you follow it, and the deliciousness just sort of happens. Everyone thinks you’re a genius, but really you just know how to read and follow orders.”
Aren’t you in love with his cakes? I totally am! Just look at these stunning masterpieces. His best-selling flavor is the Chocolate Devil Cake! Ooo, sounds delicious. He usually lets the customers choose their preferred filling. The fillings available are butterscotch, chocolate ganache, biscoff, caramel, peanut butter, or just any type of curds.

3. Alyssa Victoria’s Cake & Dessert – Alyssavr
Alyssa started her business back in 2018, a few months after she had her first child. Baking wasn’t actually her hobby nor is it her dream job. Guess what her major is? *wrong buzzer sound* She majored in Mechanical Engineering! Now, after the first one, we have on the list, I’m not even surprised many of the engineering graduates are now brilliant bakers!
Alyssa wanted to pursue something that allows her to work and also take care of her baby at home. Because of her love for painting and decorating, she was thinking of being either a florist or a baker. Lastly, she chose baking! She only took 2 baking classes and the rest was all self-taught.
Her famous and people’s choice for flavoring is her Mega Chocolate cake. Alyssa added that she also only bakes a continental cake. So, to make sure that she always delivers her best, she uses premium ingredients and ensures super, crazy immaculate end results. On top of that, she also will bake your cake fresh on the same day to maintain the quality of the cake.
Would you look at that? Perfectly neat and Insta-worthy looking wedding cake here in Miri! Check out more of her works at her social media below.

6. Confetti.my – Minimalistic, rustic wedding cake in Miri
Confetti.my is one of the rising home bakers in Miri who is a professionally trained Chef in both Cuisine and Patisserie from Le Cordon Bleu Malaysia & APCA Malaysia. Emily, the gorgeous baker behind Confetti.my said that her love for cooking and baking started from a very young age and is influenced by her parents’ love for cooking.
Her weekends would be filled with pie-making with her dad, whereas the exciting festive seasons were for all-nighters baking confectioneries and biscuits with her mum. Emily knew at 16 that this was the path she would love to pursue. Even so, her love and passion for baking weren’t enough to convince people around her and their expectations of her. She actually went on to pursue medicine for a while. It was not until 2017, that her life took a total 180 turn when she started her journey at Le Cordon Bleu Malaysia! Fast forward to today, she is now doing what she loves the most, baking!
Confetti.my’s cakes are more minimalistic, sometimes rustic, and occasionally playful with textures. Upon receiving various different cake requests that aren’t necessarily her style of work, Emily said it is still her duty to execute a client’s requests. So, if you’re looking for a minimalist or rustic kind of wedding cake in Miri, do check her out!
Confetti.my’s best-sellers are Red velvet cake with a smooth & rich cream cheese frosting and also their Sponge Cheesecake with cream cheese frosting & chunky mango compote filling. Fuhhh, that sounds delicious innit.
