Vicki Manness opened her bake shop in Calgary’s Manchester Industrial neighbourhood at the end of 2016, and her photogenic cakes and treats have amassed quite the following. She’s been baking since she was a kid and has worked at some of Calgary’s top bakeries and dessert destinations before launching her own brand. She bakes sweet table additions galore (think: watercolour sugar cookies, marbled doughnuts and shimmery macarons), but wedding cakes are her favourite.
She particularly loves creating simple, elegant cakes in mouth-watering flavours like maple bacon stout or cookies and cream. But don’t fret: she’s also an expert at industry trends, like unicorn-shaped treats or those geode cakes. Pricing is customized per order, but 12-inch cakes typically start at $110.
