Hello there! Thanks for stopping by. I'm Cindy and I am the sole owner and operator here at Baked By Cindy!
My family and I recently relocated to the Okanagan from Vancouver, B.C. where I grew up.
It has always been a dream of mine to run my own cake business, and I am so happy that I get to do it in the beautiful town of West Kelowna. I do not have a storefront, but I do work out of my very own privately licensed, Interior Health approved Commercial Kitchen!
In June 2010, I attended the Art Institute of Vancouver, where I studied Baking & Pastry Arts, graduating at the top of my class in the summer of 2011.
I spent the next 3 years working for Coast Restaurant (Glowbal Group) as a pastry cook, training under renowned pastry chefs. Refining techniques and learning the ins and outs of how a busy high class restaurant functions.
After leaving Coast, I moved onto a new small bakery in Maple Ridge at the end of 2015. I stayed on at Hansel & Gretel Bakery as the head cake & macaron lady until the end of 2018. Here, I learned my love for all custom cakes. From designing, building to executing, I realized this is where my true love for desserts blossomed.
In 2019, Baked by Cindy was born. I focused on creating memorable pieces for birthdays and lifes biggest milestones. Working from home gave me the time to refine my techniques furthermore, and gave me the opportunity to spend more time with my two little ones. ❤
I'm so grateful for the customer base I have built in such a short amount of time. Even when learning of my move, my clients have been so supportive, so loving.
I cannot fully explain into words how appreciative I am of all the support and kind words I have received over the last few months.
If not for all of you, choosing me to help you celebrate all of those special moments, I would not be here today. I would not have taken the leap to this next exciting step.
THANK YOU 💕
