Tell us about your business/craft.
At Cakelaine, we LOVE creating custom designed cakes and sweet tables tailored specific to each couple's wedding vision. Oops! I should probably mention that we cater any special event; from a baby gender reveal or a proposal, to a gory Hallowe'en party or a birthday. Our biggest thing, next to making everything pretty of course, is innovative recipe development (you'll see what I mean when you visit us at ReBash! ).
How did you get started?
I re-branded my business almost a year ago after graduating from Bonnie Gordon College and completing a summer internship program. I have recently been working closely with talented wedding and event planners to get the name out there and show Toronto what we're all about! Since I was about 7 years old I have always loved being in the kitchen, experimenting with recipes; seeing where I could make it my own.
What is one thing people may be surprised to find out about you?
I am both a country girl and city girl! Most people don't know the country side of me since I adapt to both settings. But, my father was born and raised in Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia so, you can say that lobster dinners, campfires and country music are totally my thing. If you treasure the beauty of time spent with loved ones, trail riding on ATVs and all that jazz, we can definitely get along!
What is your personal favourite piece out of your own collection and why?
Oh man.. That's a hard one. Almost every time I create a new piece; I fall in love. And then closer to creating the next, I see where I could have improved on the last. If I had to choose, I would say a fall piece I created for a styled shoot back in November 2015. I used the texture of marbling, with lots of rich fall colours; deep reds, maroon, purples and forest greens. Although I cannot release pictures of it online just yet, come by our booth at ReBash and you can see it for yourself!
Who/what inspires you?
Honestly, all determined creatives in the wedding industry inspire me. My absolute favorite thing is participating in photo shoots where I get to see all the efforts from different areas of the industry come together into something truly wonderful. It really goes to show that working in the wedding industry is fueled by the love and passion of each and every vendor.
What can guests at ReBash expect to see from you at the event?
You can expect to see a nice array of custom designed display cakes to give you a feel of our style! We're working alongside a talented friend and stylist to come up with a unique display. And of course we'll have some new spring/summer 2016 cake flavours as well as a couple of delicate pastries for sampling.
You guys...we literally can't EVEN with how beautiful and delicious this is going to be! We are so looking forward to seeing you there! About a month left to snag your Early Bird Tickets!
