Kick Ass Cakes – Pulse Spotlight – 06.20.11

Sunday, June 19th, 2011

Congratulations, Koreen. This contest is now closed.

With a punchy name like Kick Ass Cakes, one would expect to find cakes that are dynamic, thrilling and unique. Tasha Nagy, the Owner and cake decorating genius behind the company, does not disappoint.

While her creativity and passion for baking has just recently turned into a full-on business venture, Tasha has always enjoyed baking and making. Yes, it’s true. She was one of those girls with an Easy Bake Oven, making bite sized treats via light bulb for herself and her friends as a young girl.

Over four years ago, Tasha took her first cake decorating class and immediately felt as though a fire was ignited inside of her. She wanted to learn more detailed techniques, but soon realized that the training she needed was not being offered through local courses. She began to enroll herself in classes, both online and in the States, even taking a “cake cruise” that would allow her to learn from multiple chefs and field experts from the Food Network.

With lots of training over the years and practice under her belt (or should we say apron?), Tasha has grown Kick Ass Cakes into an amazing novelty cake company, making customized, designer cakes shaped as everything from kayaks to purses, toolboxes, animals, sports items and more. Each cake is made from scratch and can take multiple hours to decorate, varying in detail and difficulty, based on the customer’s request. Plain and simple, Tasha creates edible works of art.

Though she lives in Abbotsford, Tasha shares a commercial kitchen in Chilliwack with Cakes on Demand, another local company that has focused primarily on cakes for weddings. In October of 2011, Tasha will assume this company and make it her own, carrying on the great reputation and customer base that has been established by the current Owner.

In addition to novelty cakes, Tasha creates cupcakes, French macarons and cheesecakes in several sizes. All of these items are prepared using quality ingredients (such as Bernard Callebaut chocolate) and can be customized to your liking. Though the pricing of the cakes may be higher than your average bakery or grocery store, you can be guaranteed to have an original and memorable cake.

The process of designing and creating each cake is not something which can be left to the last minute. We would strongly advise an early phone call to Kick Ass Cakes if you have an upcoming celebration or social function for which you require a cake.

Tasha would love to bake up a dozen tasty cupcakes for one of our lovely readers. Please leave a note below to be entered to win. Winner will be announced on June 30, 2011.
