I stumbled across the fun and fabulous website of We Bake in Heels a few months ago and decided I needed to have them bake a cake for something! The Pay It Forward: High Heel Event perfect was a perfect opportunity for We Bake in Heels! The owners of We Bake in Heels invited me to their bake shop for a consultation to design a cake for the WPIC Event organized by Jacquie Swadi – founder of the Pay It Forward Mentoring seminars.
The first thing I noticed after walking into the shop was that it seemed so chic and beautifully decorated. I welcomed by Adrienne who was so cheerful and friendly! The second thing I noticed is that Adrienne and Cat actually bake in heels! And not just any heels, the must funky, stylish and amazing looking heels ever! They say that other businesses nearby and customers check in on them, to make sure they are always wearing heels!
Their store front show room and bakery is trendy and fun. Crisp white walls showcase various beautiful shoes. A flat screen TV showcases their most beautiful cakes and creations. Adrienne and Cat have been friends for years, and decided to open We Bake in Heels while on vacation in the Bahamas. They opened their doors to the public in October 2009. They were friendly, inviting and welcoming! It was only a few minutes into our meeting and I had already felt like I had known these women for years! They are so bubbly, full of great ideas and exceptionally great at making cakes.
Besides customizing cakes they also do cupcakes, mini cupcakes, cake truffles, French macarons and designer cookies. They offer cake in a variety of delicious flavours from favourites such as classic vanilla and decadent chocolate to red velvet, maple and brown sugar and banana flavours!
They were kind enough to allow me to bring back 4 sample cupcakes – and they were delicious!!
We Bake in Heels sponsored the cake for WPIC’s latest Get Together and Pay it Forward Seminar. It was showcased in our brand new office lobby and everyone in attendance oohed and awed over it all night!
Pop by the We Bake in Heels website for more information on how you can purchase your own customized cake, cupcakes or cookies made by the ladies who bake in heels!
Below are some pictures of their best cakes, and the amazing cake they made for our event!
