New Location

Krista and her sister Jennifer are enjoying their beautiful new location at 115 Princess Street, located within Card's Bakery.

The new location has created so much more walk in traffic that Krista and her staff Maggie Mae and Sirenna have created a specialty cupcake menu that has been such a huge success. We now offer gourmet cupcakes such as creme brulee, peanut butter and chocolate, sour lemon, coconut cream. Our new shop is full of beautiful desserts and new creations as well as unique gifts and kitchen ware. Come in and see what everyone is talking about.

Thanks KristaHi Krista,

I am writing this note to thank you for your contributions to my family celebrations in recent years. We first came to you in 2006 when my husband and I were planning our wedding. After the reception a couple of the groomsmen hit the town with the last few slices of cake and claim that it was the best pick-up gimmick ever - apparently girls are suckers for men in suits with delicious desserts!

We've since been back for birthday cakes, cupcakes, graduation cakes, etc. Whenever there is a special occasion approaching, we know to turn to you for a cake that will make the person being honoured feel valued. Your cakes are not only beautiful but delicious. How you keep your prices so competitive is a mystery but one that we are grateful for! The combination of great value, aesthetic and taste means that we can always recommend you with confidence to family and friends when they are planning events. We have a family member with gluten intolerance and your gluten-free chocolate cake was such a decadent treat - if we were not Die-hard Krista fans before, we are now!

Again, your cakes have become a staple at family events and we feel that Kingston is so blessed to have local families with such great talents.

Cakes and Cupcakes for 2011

February 18, 2011/ — Cakes for 2011 seen in the bridal magazines look artistically inventive. Lots of art deco embellishments and designs that remind me of the 50's and 60's. Cakes seem to be very colorful this year and also inventive in their height proportions from tier to tier.

I now have an enormous selection of custom cupcake wrappers to fit any occasion. Cupcakes just keep getting even more special and popular. All of these reality television shows really keep me on my toes for new ideas as it seems unusual cake and cupcake requests keep coming in! How fun! It has been wonderful for business.

Thanks to all our wonderful repeat customers. I love getting orders for baby shower cakes from all of the couples that I have made wedding cakes for in previous years.

Wedding Season 2010

March 18, 2010/ — I am looking forward to a busy wedding season for 2010. Please book early as the spaces fill quickly! I am loving all the colourful cakes with fondant adornments I see coming out of New York and California. Who knew black embellishments could be so chic and so classy? I have met some amazing delightful couples so far this winter and spring. Very excited about the upcoming summer.

Occasion and Desert Cakes

March 16, 2010/ — Occasion and dessert cakes are forever popular and we cannot keep cupcakes on the shelf! I heard someone did a comparison between mine and the cupcake shops in Toronto and Vancouver and guess who's took the cake...I am blushing to say yours truely!

Look forward to meeting you, Krista
