Hi, I would like to introduce myself, my name is Darlene, I got married on New Years Eve 2014 to my best friend Herb. We are partners of Cakes-by-Darlene. We enjoy meeting new people, you can find us at different farmers markets and craft shows throughout the year, at times you will find me at one spot and Herb at another, but there are times we are both at the same venue too.
I found decorating to be a wonderful outlet for my creativity and soon found myself wanting to experiment with new designs. I will try anything, so whatever you might have in mind for your special day, I will put 110% into it, to make sure its perfect for you. Every cake is unique and tailored to suit you, or if you're not completely sure what you want, you can tell me the theme and leave the design up to me and I will make sure your design is perfect for you.
My Granddaughter is a very important part of our life, and I enjoy every minute I get to spend with her. My granddaughter (Faith) loves baking along side of me when she comes for a visit making her own goodies for us to try. Those are very special moments for us.
Herb and I are the owners of Cakes by Darlene. I have a long history of cake decorating and baking other delicious goodies, And Herb enjoys taste tasting everything I make. I learned how to bake and decorate back in 1980 at Tim Hortons, after that I worked at IGA in 1988, and then I worked at the Atlantic superstore until 2004. I decided I wanted to start working on my own, and now I am so glad that I did, I am loving every minute of it.
We like to make everyone that comes to see us feel special, we really care about our clients. One thing about me that I would never change is spending time with my clients one-on-one, I cherish the moment when I get to sit down with you and listen to your story. I treat my customers as individuals and like we have been friends forever. I want to make sure your day is memorable.
Most of my sales come from "word of mouth" from customers that have been impressed by the work that I have done over the years . The secret ingredient to my success is not just my cakes, its also the respect I show each and every customer.
After baking and cake decorating for 30 years, I have many designs I can make for you. If you are looking for a cake or sweet trays you can call or email to set up a time to sit down and discuss what you would like. Just bring a photo or describe the cake and watch the amazing cake that it becomes, no matter how large the cake I will make sure you feel like you are my only customer.
