Michelle’s Patisserie | Founder
Michelle Doyon is the pastry chef and founder of Michelle’s Patisserie, a locally owned bakery that for 20 years has specialized in custom cakes, wedding cakes, petit fours and desserts. The Knot regularly recognizes Michelle’s Patisserie in their Best of Weddings awards, and in 2020, Doyon was featured on Food Network. Recently the Junior League of Austin awarded her the Austin Entertains Culinary Fellowship, which includes a $10,000 grand prize. The Junior League of Austin awards this fellowship to a woman who gives back to her community and provides unique strengths to the culinary industry. Doyon plans to use part of the prize money to make improvements to her commercial kitchen, which she opens up to other women who are just starting their own food businesses. She believes in the importance of giving back because genuine acts of kindness lead others to do the same.
