About Emelia

I’ve been a baker ever since I can remember.

As a little girl, I was always in the kitchen, beaters in one hand, cake tin in the other, mixing, measuring, making an enormous mess – and loving every minute of it.

I’m always the one volunteering to bake the birthday cake or bring the dessert (I’ve found it’s a guaranteed invite to the party) and while I’m mostly self-taught, I feel extremely fortunate to have grown up around some passionate home cooks who always encouraged me to express myself in the kitchen.


I appeared as one of the top 24 contestants in the Australian reality television program MasterChef Season 6, in which she finished in 3rd place. I was then invited to join the top 24 returning contestants in MasterChef Australia: Back to Win in 2020, in which I was crowned winner

Bespoke Cakes

My skills were put to the ultimate test in 2014, when I appeared as a contestant on season six of Masterchef Australia.

I studied hard, practiced constantly and learned a lot from some of the best professional chefs in the business, as well as the talented contestants cooking alongside me. My time on Masterchef taught me that all I really want to do in life is make people happy through butter and sugar, which is why I launched Emelia Jackson Cake Designs.

All of my cakes and desserts are thoughtfully designed, filled with love (and sometimes tears) and made using the finest ingredients. I cater to events all over Melbourne, including: birthday cakes, wedding cakes, christening and baptism cakes, bomboniere and more, and I love working with clients to turn their dessert dreams into reality.
