Hi there, I am so glad you found my page! I am Christine, a full time baker/decorator based out of Nepean (Ottawa) in Trend Arlington Woods. I work predominantly with sugar cookies, but also make cakes, cupcakes and gingerbread houses.
I suppose my history with sugar cookies began at the age of 8 when my sisters and I would bake cookies with our mom for our classmates and bring them to school. Fast forward to my teen years, and I was constantly baking up a storm for school bake sales, and the birthdays of my friends and families (My current self would be mortified to look at these creations, but you absolutely have to start somewhere!). Fast forward to my 20s, and what started out by gifting cookies/cakes/cupcakes to friends and families quickly snowballed into being a full time baker/decorator at the beginning of 2020.
I currently bake out of a shared commercial kitchen space run by local bakery La Maison Kouign Amann in Kanata, and decorate in my dedicated home studio. I live for creating one of kind pieces of edible art that are unique, imaginative and joyful. I create custom orders for individuals and businesses, sell at Markets (Notably the Log Farm Farmers’ Market in Nepean), and create pre-sales for major holidays throughout the year.
I have struggled with disabling physical and mental health issues my entire life, which has made full time work challenging. I can’t even express my gratitude to all of my clients who have helped me create a sustainable job for myself that I can manage at my own pace, and use my specific set of skills at their best ability. Not only this, but in the past year I’ve been able to offer part time employment to both of my sisters, my friend Haley, and several volunteer helpers (Ahem… Thanks mom and dad.)
My team and I hope to be able to make your life a little bit sweeter! :)
