Cookies, Recipes & Tutorials, Royal Icing / 09.02.2017

Hello, hello! I'm back with another recipe! With Valentine's Day just around the corner, I thought that these cute (and relatively easy to decorate) cookies were the perfect thing to share so that you can bake them at home! I originally created these for the first time when my bakery was open, back in 2015, as a way to use up spare edible gold paint. They were a quick way to decorate cookies to keep up with the demand and also, they're simply pretty. In my opinion, a pretty...

Cookies, Royal Icing / 05.02.2017

Hi, friends! I've had many requests for a post detailing everything that is royal icing, so finally, here it is! The information below is much of what I cover when I host my Sugar Cookie Decorating Workshops. It's a long read, but hopefully you find it packed with good information and tips that will help you achieve icing perfection! Let's get started...

Cupcakes, Holidays, Recipes & Tutorials / 22.10.2016

Happy FALL! I don't know where summer went, but I do know that all of a sudden, I'm wearing rubber boots and dodging raindrops on my way in and out of the house. Summer for me was all about working on my upcoming baking book, while tackling wedding orders and keeping my local coffee shop in business by living on their lattes. I also moved across the city and have been in and out of meetings planning what's next for Sweet Bake Shop....

Cookies, Ice Cream, Other Sweets, Recipes & Tutorials, Videos / 07.07.2016

Hello from under a pile of scrawled recipe notes! I've been trying to keep up with regular blogging, but have been having such a tough time balancing, well, everything as of late. Between recipe writing and testing for my upcoming baking book, a whole lot of wedding clients and my less-than-smooth-sailing personal life (I'm recently single), things have been a little bit hectic....

Bakery Life, Travel / 13.06.2016

Hello from home sweet home in Vancouver! If you've been following along on social media, you'll know that I just spent the past week in one of my favourite cities: London! I was there for a two private sugar cookie decorating classes, but when I wasn't working, I was eating copious amounts of sugar - all in the name of research. At least that's what I'm telling myself, so let's just go with it ;) It definitely wasn't a relaxing trip - I quite literally was running all over...

Bakery Life / 23.03.2016

Hello from inside a flurry of confetti, sprinkles and cake crumbs! A lot has been going on over here lately and I sometimes find it really difficult to make time to sit down and write. A few things have happened since my last post. I turned 30, which feels no different than being 29, to be honest, except that occasionally when I tell people that I'm 30, they either feel the need to tell me that I don't look 30 or ask me if I've started thinking about botox...

Cakes, Cookies, Frostings & Fillings / 31.01.2016

Happy almost-February to you, friends! February is one of my favourite months because it plays host to my most-loved baking 'holiday' of the year - Valentine's Day! All of the pastel pink gifts, endless chocolates and fancy love-themed candy in the grocery store aisles make me pretty darn excited to get into the kitchen and bake pretty things!...

Bakery Life / 23.01.2016

Hello, 2016! There's almost nothing in the world that I love more than a fresh start, except cake and cookies and all things dessert. Bubble baths are pretty high up on that list, too. And puppies - oh, how I love puppies! I can't believe that it's been over a month since my last post (!!!), but I have a handful of other things on the go right now that consume a lot of my time - more on what's going on to come in a later post!...
