Meet the Artist

As far back as I can remember my Mother was always baking. Whether it was a Princess’ Castle cake for my birthday, a ghost cake for Halloween or a gingerbread house for Christmas everything was always made from scratch. It became my job early on to be the decorator of these treats. I still remember every Christmas making the trip to Bulk Barn to pick out the candy for our gingerbread house and then instructing my little brother on exactly how it was all to be laid out. I guess, looking back on it, this was my early inspiration into cake design. I have always excelled in areas in which my artistic talents were used.

After returning to Toronto from living in New Orleans, where I co-founded a non-profit organization to help rebuild the city following hurricane Katrina, I was in search of a new creative endeavor. I have a background in bridal fashion design and hand finishing which lends to my keen eye for detail. In this search I stumbled upon a course in cake design and knew this was something I had to pursue. After taking my first class I was hooked and knew I had found my niche. My main bakery and cake design studio is based in Toronto with a 2nd retail location in Oakville. My mission is to bring my clients visions to life and to add a personalized element to their special day.

Whether you are in search of the perfect wedding cake, novelty or carved cake, birthday cake, grooms cake, anniversary cake or any other special occasion cake For The Love of Cake will make your idea edible.
