Winner: Bake My Day

Unlike the wedding cakes, which are mostly made for shows, a cake from Bake My Day is meant to be eaten and enjoyed. Founder and cake designer Tamara Rutschmann believes that simplicity is the key to excellence, and she applies this philosophy to making desserts from scratch, using local ingredients that are preservative-free. She doesn’t freeze her cakes either, but she’ll be happy to deliver them fresh for your event. As a graduate of the baking and confectionery program at SAIT, Rutschmann has been baking all her life and in 2012 unofficially began to bake tailor-made cakes for the special events of her family and friends from home before renting out a commercial kitchen area in 2016. “It was just so far that my day was so full,” says Rutschmann. “This is really where my passion lies – decorating cakes and working with my customers.” Bake My Day also offers a range of mini desserts, including cookies, shortbread, mini pies, and French macarons. The flavors range from classics like chocolate and vanilla to cinnamon strudel, banana butter and lavender-vanilla pod. Her most popular flavors for wedding cakes are London Fog (made from a blend of teas from the local company Tearrific) and chocolate and caramel with a homemade salt and caramel sauce. Bake My Day is expanding and recently moved to a new studio in Ramsay. – TA
