Campaign Description

Help support this new concept studio (first in Canada) of making cake decorating easy. We are a storefront with an open concept kitchen where you can simply ask for all, bits and pieces, or the hands on guidance of a professional cake decorator, to get or make any cake you want. Our goal from this campaign is to grow awareness and the capital we need to boost us through our early months. With the campaign funds we will hire a dishwasher, purchase a sheeter, coffee brewing system and coffee supply from local roasters Devil’s Head Coffee.

What is CAKEify Studio? - what services can we offer you?

CAKEify Studio is a DIY cake decorating studio, cake and custom shop.  We offer stress-free prep, real cake, and real ingredients, and a 'no mess at home', cake decorating experience. We simplify the cake decorating process by providing various items you might need from the in-house baked cake, in-house made buttercream icing, fondant, tools and embellishments to decorate a personalized cake. A collaborative of local cake artists bring their unique styles to the table working with customers to develop the customers’ cake vision, and also apply their skills to the custom cake orders. In addition to being a nut-free aware facility, we are a licenced venue that can hold up to 70 people and can accommodate events such as birthday parties, date night, classes, friendly competitions, baby showers, walk-ins, team building, meetings and much more. We truly believe in a positive learning environment, collaboration and community when it comes to decorating.

The Idea - where did it come from and how does it help you?

Being a cake hobbiest for about 8 years, I started to see a trend in what I was doing. If I had a cake to make, I would store hop to gather everything I needed to make and decorate, I would then find a day to bake, prep for decorating would be in there somewhere, then decorating.  It was quite the process, especially if you included actual 'life' into the equation. It took up my time, so much space at home, and my extra dollars for those tools I only used once or the package I needed to buy just to use 1, oh and that store hopping... , and, the tornado 'stuff' in the kitchen, as I rush to put together a masterpeice.  Cake requests from family and friends would come and go and I would repeat these steps over and over, getting more efficient and strategic along the way. I at least now knew which shops to go to for what, extra batter would be made into extra cake rounds and extra icing would be stored in the freezer, and all my new tools would get stored in my section(s) in the storage room just waiting to be used again or be borrowed out, and the mess, well, that never goes away.  I would take a class every once and a while to learn a new skill or broaden my knowledge of the pastry arts or cooking, and would find myself teaching a friend or cousin what I had learned soon after.  I liked the idea of getting people involved with my hobbies.

After being laid-off from my full-time job, my mind was set on starting a business. While still hobbying my way with cake, I wished for there to be a one-stop shop, a short cut, a tool and supply share, a place where I could cake in peace or even not have to put my family out of the kitchen for a couple days, and a real live person in front of me to help me with a technique. And so, the idea was born.

 

An Experience & Community - good for the soul

You know what's fun?

Getting your hands dirty. 

Doing things you've never done before.

Attempting something and failing. Doing it again and doing it better than the first time. 

Doing things with friends and family.

Having someone there to help and guide you when you want them to be.

Making cake together.

Celebrating together.

Eating cake together.

In the Studio - magic happens

Since our doors had opened in August we witness so many great things happen here. Not only do we get to be part of the celebrations of life, achievements and unions, we see giving and gratitude in different forms constantly. The best things though, are moments of genuine actions, like a little one trying cake for the first time ever, a dad stealing icing every chance he got while helping his daughter decorate her birthday cake, real life nailed it competitions where people clearly made bad decisions and also really good ones too, young ones being super thoughtful and methodical while executing a project, comfort in ladies who haven't seen eachother in ages reuniting while making their families goodies for the weekend, laughter from kids who just realized some sprinkles are just like tiny bouncy balls, people coming together to create their loved one the perfect celebration cake, people teaching other people something they just learned to someone they just met, high fives on a job well done, eyes lighting up in a child or a complete grown up when they see that they CAN create something amazing,

Heather McGrath

Professional Cake Artist

A girl with a couple of sugar crazed kids, and a dream, Heather McGrath dove into the world of sugar in 2007. She laughs now when she sees the cakes she was making when everyone told her that she should go into business. But that hysteria, while well founded, is the driving force behind her need to improve. Heather started creating things, taking classes, and consuming as much knowledge and experience as possible. Today she has her own custom cake business, many awards, including best in show at the Calgary Stampede, the Calgary Cake & Sugar Art competition, and was awarded silver at Cake International in Birmingham, UK. She frequently volunteers with the Calgary Sugarcraft Guild, loves talking about anything cake, and sharing techniques and ideas. Still the owner of her cake business Cakepunk (www.cakepunk.ca), she also is a member of the Cakeify Studio team.

ALL 24 hours of Jan. 23rd to reach our goal!!

The BoostR will run for another day!  We have until Jan.23 at 11:59PM to make this happen.  I'm sure we can do it!!!

 

Here is my little bit longer version of 'How I Got Here....'

I've always been mesmerized by cooking for as long as I can remember.....
 
As a student I excelled at food studies :), singing, art, cosmetology, and geology :), and found any other science classes very interesting.
 
I competed in Skills Canada Alberta, Culinary Arts Highschool Division and won Gold. I never went to nationals due to Grade 12 finals...
 
Graduated with a BSc in Geology and worked downtown Calgary at 1 company my whole 10 year geology career. Mapping, excel spreadsheets, powerpoints and presenting were my life. I volunteered on my company recruitment team, and for geological education-driven programs for many years.
 
2009 I took my first 8 week cake decorating course so I could make and decorate my own wedding cake. I did. I baked and decorated our 5-tier wedding cake for 200ish people. It was delicious. I continued to make cakes for family and friends since then.
 
A cake business was on my brain ever since 2014. I was laid-off from my geology position, and started learning about small businesses because of owning a direct sales business in 2016. I signed-up for business courses. I learned a lot about marketing, sales, cashflow, social media, exposure, my strengths and not-so strengths, mindset and goal setting.
 
My husband was the trigger that made me take the cake business leapt from idea to reality.
I did my food handling course and CAKEify Studio was in a formal business plan January 2018. I registered and incorporated Jan.31st. I became an owner.  Planning, excel spreadsheets, powerpoints and presenting were fully in my life again. Got a GST# and tracked expenses.
 
By chance, I found a mentor in the cake decorating world. She didn't know it, and I didn't either, but that's how our relationship turned out to be. Hi Natasha! Thank you!! :)
 
Looking for a location, I learned a lot about Permits, 'Building & Development', bakery equipment, 'Land Use', Calgary communities, leasing, being patient..... Logo & branding sessions took place somewhere in here too...
 
I joined the Calgary Sugarcraft Guild in 2018 and met other decorators, business owners and attended classes they offered to refine my skills.  
 
The studio location was secured October 2018 and planning for construction commenced. I learned a lot about more permits, restaurant codes, business loans & investors, licences, websites, insurance, refining my business plan and cashflow. I became familiar with business lawyers, accountants, banking and insurance.
 
January 2019 I was accepted to participate in the ATB X 10 week program.  Extreme business learnings and very relatable experience sharing happened here. I became exposed to the Calgary start-up & small business community and honed in on my vision, mission and mindset and became part of a more engaging support group.
 
Opening a store meant, for me, having a manager. Cue Meghan. Together we tackled AGLC, WCB, AHS, Hiring, CRA, probably more things... She took on payroll, bookkeeping, POS/merchant platform, IT, supplies, compliance, and probably more things....I owe this lady SO many beers. Thank you.
 
Construction officially began April 2019. My father-in-law came across Canada, for a second time now, to head this one up as my GC, and oh, did I ever learn. More on restaurant codes, but, construction, not my world, not my forte. Thank you Daniel Cook. We are extremely grateful for EVERYTHING you accomplished and endured, while planning and building to make CAKEify Studio physically appear. 
 
I conducted interviews during construction and hired Olivia, Heather, Iana and Meagan. I became a boss. We trained, went over recipes, procedures, etc. I learned a lot about supplies, ingredients, costs, shipping, quality of products, where and how to find 'things'.
 
August 6th 2019 CAKEify Studio's doors opened, and I became a store owner. 
 
 
I guess we'll have to save the 'what I've learned' stories of owning a store for another time, as this one has turned out to be quite long already. So to wrap it up, I've worked hard to get where I am today, mentally and physically. I didn't even include my personal life in this, but I hope this brings you to a closer understanding about what I, and all of us out there, that have started something from nothing, have gone through. That with passion, determination and believing in myself, I did it. Definitely, not alone, but I did it.

January 7th Update - 17 days to go!!

We have 17 days left and have raised/sold 23% of our goal!!
Picture: the many great local business and organizations that have and are contributing to my dream (either part of the store or stores growth)
 
If you aren't familiar with the ATB BoostR idea, it's a rewards-based crowdfunding platform that helps small businesses expand and we have 18 wonderful product offers to choose from. We even brought in another Calgary business that we love, Devil's Head Coffee, to grow their awareness and make a couple of our offers more 'complete' for the coffee lovers out there. We have offers you can purchase for yourself, get as a gift or even for work as a team building option!
 
If you are thinking of supporting us through our BoostR, this is why acting now helps us get to our goal.  The ATB BoostR campaign uses an all-or-nothing funding model. We will only receive the purchases if we reach our goal, if not, the contributions are not processed. Seeing progression/support now will encourage others to do so also, making the goal realistic and ensuring the success of all of our efforts.
 
So, thank you to all who have 'Boosted' our campaign already. We truly, truly, apricate it. Thank you.  And to all others who plan on purchasing anything in the next year at CAKEify Studio, please consider doing so through this campaign, (that is over and done on January 24th), as we would love to be able to celebrate this small business achievement, put revenue generating equipment in sooner than later, and be able to start this year strong. 
 
If you are unable or not interested in 'boosting' through a product purchase/donation, please pass this message on to a few of your closest friends, family and coworkers, as any effort to spread the word of CAKEify Studio and our campaign is support just as equal as anything monetary.
 
Who we are: www.cakeifystudio.com
What we do: nothing you've ever seen before (every day, and all in one place)

Thank you SO much,
Deb &
The CAKEify Studio Team
 
 
(Deb - "I wouldn't change a thing about my journey that has brought me where I am right now. I've learned so much. Failed? Yes, I can't lie. I have experienced so much entrepreneurial anxieties, have laughed, cried, and jumped for joy. I have found comradery in the environment I've entered into and created. I have seen the faces of challenge, pressure, submission, prevail, success, belief in oneself, and a whole lot of accomplishment, in myself, my colleagues, and my customers. The support has been immeasurable, and I feel a deep, deep, sense of gratitude towards everyone who has helped me in any way. I feel indebted to the longest list of family and friends, with husband Andy as #1. And, I'm not even done yet. There's still more to do. Still, so much more to do. But, I'm ready, and determined to get there.)

FAQs

Do you host team building events?

Yes we do! There are 2 ways to go about a team build. 1) Instructor-lead class or 2) Cake decorating competition, much like 'Nailed It'. The latter is good as it involves team work and problem solving skills.

When are you open?

Monday - Wednesday 10am-6pm, Thursday - Saturday 9am-8pm, Sunday by bookings only.

Do you host classes?

Yes, there are classes every week varying in skill and prices like cookie decorating, buttercream piping, beginner skills of stacking and leveling, fondant cakes, sculpted cakes etc.

Can we book a private lesson?

Yes. Just send in a picture of what it is you would like to learn and we will do our best to price it and find a time to teach it.

Can I rent your facility?

Yes, but not the kitchen. The private room and main room can be booked so you can host an event, that doesn't have to involve cake decorating, but has limitations on use. Food can be catered in, and we have a liquor license.
