Maryann is the founder of Missy M Sweets in Perth, Western Australia- living and working on the land of the Noongar people. As a mum who has left corporate work for flexibility in raising her son, she knew she needed to be self-employed. Her passion for baking and desire to be financially independent led Maryann to create her baking business, Missy M Sweets.
Missy M Sweets. Missy M Sweets offers freshly handmade decadent sweets and custom made dessert gift boxes with Asian inspired flavours. We have a decadent product range such as chunkie cookies and fudgy brownies and a healthier range of products such as breakfast cookies to cater for the health conscious customers and nutritious cookies (lactation cookies) that are tailored to mums with newborn. In addition to supplying local supermarkets and other stockists, Maryann also runs baking workshops online for women who want to become self-employed in their own baking business.
