At her home bakery, Tanya of Cakes By Tanya draws upon extensive experience, including three Wilton Method courses, to delight both taste buds and eyes with custom decorated cupcakes and cakes. When crafting fancy cupcakes, the cupcake constructor fills pans with batter flavours such as chocolate, marble and vanilla blueberry, bakes each miniature sweet to the perfect temperature, slathers on frosting, and then transforms cupcake faces into logos, designs, or a choice of characters such as Cookie Monster. Meanwhile, character cakes spring from the oven like claustrophobic gingerbread men accompanied by the scent of flavours including strawberry, lemon, and confetti. Equipped with an assortment of icing options, the baking artisan paints a variety of familiar faces and designs onto each cake's fluffy tapestry. Choices including Winnie the Pooh, Bob the Builder, and SpongeBob SquarePants emerge as edible tributes, perfect for serving up during children's birthday parties or lengthy hang-gliding flights. Customers can also request nut-free recipes or upgrade their cakes to include 3D elements for an additional fee.

About Cakes By Tanya
With skills honed through the acclaimed Wilton Method of cake decorating, cake artist Tanya Swanarchuk moulds confections into edible party centerpieces. She crafts each cake to suit her clients’ tastes, selecting from classic and premium flavours such as vanilla blueberry, Kahlúa, black forest, and confetti that’s been frozen in time. Cake batter then anoints cupcake or custom cake moulds, which bake treats into shapes of favourite cartoon characters, sports-team logos, or adult-themed images. Tanya can also craft towering tiered cakes for weddings or intricately moulded 3-D cakes that mimic hamburgers to trick finicky eaters into consuming their daily cake allowance.
