Pulse Spotlight, June 1/09 – The Crazy Cake Lady

Sunday, May 31st, 2009

We are sad to report that The Crazy Cake Lady has folded their business in January 2011.

We just love fresh, home made, moist cake.  At the Ridge Meadows Home Show this year, we found one of the most delicious cakes we’ve ever tried. The Crazy Cake Lady was serving up chocolate and vanilla cupcakes, and WOW were they ever good!  The sight of pretty cupcakes lured us to The Crazy Cake Lady’s booth, but it was the incredible cake creations that made us stay a while.  Check them out – we’ve had a terrible time figuring out which pictures to use in this feature – they are all so creative!

With three kids each, these ladies wanted to start a business.  What better way to spend time with the kids, and do something they love.  Toby describes their business name as a perfect fit for their personalities.  “We laugh a lot, ” she says.  And what a great business to be involved in.  A cake is always part of a celebration, the focal point of an event or festivity!  It’s hard to compete with grocery stores who bake cakes en masse, using lesser quality ingredients to keep costs down.  But no preservatives or anything artificial makes its way into a Crazy Cake Lady cake.  “Everything in our cakes, you have in your refrigerator,” says Toby.  That’s what we like to hear!

Ladies, your designs are so fabulous.  We can’t wait to call you for our next cake-worthy celebration!
