About the Bake Shop (& Me!)
The Bake Shop is owned and operated by me, Kala! I am a self taught baker and many years ago for a short time I operated a small home-based cupcake business. I rediscovered my love for baking for others while making cupcakes for friends and family during the 2020 Covid lock down and I then started learning a bit more about decorated cookies. And thus, the Bake Shop was reborn as a registered home-based bakery in St. John’s, NL, offering peanut and tree nut free cupcakes, cakes, cookies, and treats to entice your sweet tooth (I am allergic to peanuts and tree nuts so you won't find any in my kitchen!)
All treats are made from scratch and baked with the finest ingredients - real butter, fresh strawberries, pure vanilla... all chocolate garnishes are hand molded and all cookies are homemade and hand decorated.
I work full time outside of the Bake Shop and I am the sole baker and decorator. I am extremely thankful to have help from my family when it comes to packaging, pickup location, driving me on deliveries, and sampling for quality insurance. They help me a lot behind the scenes and I wouldn't be able to do it without them!
I love everything Disney... my happy places are home and Walt Disney World. I’m obsessed with my cat. And I live in St. John’s with my boyfriend - who graciously puts up with my very late night baking and our icing covered kitchen.
I find a lot of joy in creating and baking the Bake Shop treats and thanks to all of you wonderful people, I can keep doing it!
Thank you for following along and supporting my small business. I hope to bake for you soon!
