This past November marked one year since we moved to the Niagara region. It’s hard to believe how many changes have taken place since then. Our business continues to grow and we have learned so much from new neighbours, local farmers and fellow entrepreneurs. We are eternally grateful to our loyal customers and of course, to our wonderfully supportive family and friends. It’s been a sweet year! Some of our favourite moments are captured throughout this blogpost as we head into 2016.
In the summer of 2015, we decided to take the steps to install a commercial kitchen as well as refresh our website to align with our vision for a responsive site that maintains a whimsical look. We wanted to make navigation easier and establish a more engaging experience, and we couldn’t be happier with the results. These are a few steps we took towards developing “the Baking Twins” that will set the foundation for 2016 and allow us to continue our passion for delivering custom cakes, cookies and cupcakes.
Of course, we couldn’t forget about the sweets! One of our favourite wedding cakes from the past year is the three-tier cake we created for our cousin Nicole and her husband, Matt. Hands down, this was one of our favourite cakes to create. From the beautiful flowers and bling to just a hint of pink (at the request of Nicole), it was simply elegant! Heading in to the new year, we can’t wait to create more custom wedding cakes. We love taking a bride (and groom’s) vision and turning it into a sweet reality. It was hard to choose a favourite from our growing gallery.
We also enjoyed creating a variety of whimsical styled cakes this year, including a sculpted ski themed design, a Jeep Wrangler cake topper, 3D fondant animals, a carved running shoe and shoebox, a whisky bottle as well as a celebration champagne bottle (in the spirit of the new year)!
We love creating custom cakes, as they allow us to get creative with unique designs. We are always amazed with each request and have yet to create the same cake design twice. We say farewell to these sculpted cakes, and are excited to see what 2016 brings in regards to sculpted cakes!
Looking ahead, we are excited to keep doing what we love – create, bake and share our passion with as many people as possible. From the bottom of our mixing bowls, thank you for your support throughout 2015! Happy New Year!
