When did you start your business and what was your inspiration?
I have been baking and decorating for over 20 years. I began as a hobby decorator and then friends began to ask for cakes and then friends or friends and soon people whom I didn't even know where asking for cakes, so a business was born. When your passionate about what you do, it shows in your work and customers seek you out.
What makes your business different from others? Our variety of ﬂavours and the ability to choose whatever combination you like. Delivery is often included with cake orders within Calgary and we offer out of town delivery as well. Our one on one customized service and unique designs is what sets us apart.
What is the best part of your job? The best part of our jobs is creating an extraordinary looking cake that tastes even better. Often times people will ask if we are sad to see our creations cut but for me that's only one part of the art form- they have to enjoy an amazingly tasting cake as well. See the excitement in a child's face when we deliver their birthday cake or the expression of a bride and groom makes all long hours and hard work all worth it!
What do you hope to achieve with each wedding? We want to give the bride and groom a creation that is a reﬂection of them. A wedding cake should incorporate decorative aspects and themes from a wedding but most importantly reﬂect the couple in a unique way- that may be in the ﬂavours they choose or the design. Each creation is unique.
What was your most memorable wedding? The one where we had to stay and cut the cake because the club refused to do it. It's memorable because it was the only one where we got to watch the bride and groom cut the cake and enjoy the special moment.
Words that you live by? Our customers are the most important aspect of our business and we do everything possible to go above and beyond for each one of them. There event or wedding is special and they need us to know we understand and appreciate that.
