Wow you guys! We’re not ones to over-share a lot on our pages, BUT our stats keep coming in and we’re continually blown away not only by the numbers but by the genuine love and support you’ve all shown us.

After this latest number update and a barrage of emails, phone messages and hugs still coming in 3 months later we’ve decided to finally talk about some of the reasons we decided to give ourselves a break.

As most of you know there have been some changes behind the scenes these last few years, Denise wanted to retire, Becky hasn’t been at the shop for a few years and I’ve been mostly floating around in the background having a few babies and happily staying at home with them.

To make things short and sweet and really, really simplified the gist of it is we were so busy (THANK YOU!) that ultimately the pressure of being in the shop to make sure the quality of our products were maintained and everything was running smoothly ended up being too much for me and my little family.  I hadn’t wanted to return full time to the work force until my littlest was in school full time but had to decide early to continue on with the shop so my mom could hang up her apron for good. Turns out what was best for the business wasn’t best for my littles, they missed their mom and I missed being able to be with them whenever they needed me. Which brings us to the reason we didn’t sell.

Selling is pretty final and at this moment is not an option. Crazy Cakes might be closed but it’s definitely not gone for good. We are brainstorming, regrouping, taking some necessary time to decide collectively what we want for the business moving forward and how it will fit into our lives in a healthy way. We also have lots of Spudnut flour left that we aren’t going to let go to waste, so stay tuned for that!

In closing we’d like to thank you all again for being so kind, supportive, and generous with your comments and love for our products and the special place we created here in the community. You have no idea how much hearing from you all has eased a bit of the sadness that comes with closing a chapter that has meant so much to our family.

Sending you all hugs and looking forward to seeing you in the near future!

Huzzah! We're blogging again.

April 18, 2017

First of all, Happy Easter! We hope each and every one of you had a wonderful long weekend with family and friends.

Second, it's been 4 years of radio silence on here but we're aiming to update about the shop happenings at least once a month!

We've got a lot of new and exciting things rolling out this spring and summer, so likely we'll be here a bit more often. Stay tuned, and in the meantime check out what the Easter Bunny brought us!

We have a beautiful lineup of new packaging! Now your goodies will come in boxes and bags that are just as beautiful as what's inside and we couldn't be more pleased. Our friends at Georgette packaging and James from Media32 helped our vision come to life and we are so thankful for the endless hours they spent walking us through the process.

So, if you've had your fill of chocolate eggs, come down and pick up one of this month's feature cupcakes. We have Hawaiian Crunch, the ultimate crowd pleaser or BananaScotch.

Hawaiian Crunch is a moist pineapple cake with cream cheese buttercream and candied pretzels and BananaScotch is a wonderful banana cake with butterscotch buttercream topped with butterscotch chips.

AND! Because the weather is warming up there is freshly churned Hokey Pokey and Chocolate ice cream in the dipping cabinet.

Hokey Pokey is a caramel ice cream with sponge toffee crumble.

April's Feature Cupcake: Hawaiian Crunch

April 15, 2013

It’s mid April already and I’m sure, like me, you’re all anxiously awaiting warm weather’s return. Until then, come and visit us for a little Hawaiian Crunch, April’s feature cupcake. It is delicious. A favorite among the Crazy Cakers and most of our regulars. If you haven’t tried it yet, it is a moist pineapple cupcake topped with cream cheese buttercream and the most divine candied pretzels. It will remind you of the tropical Hawaiian vacay you’re craving, quite a delicious little escape! In other news, we also have a brand new cupcake to add to our roster. It is currently nameless, but with your help we hope to have it’s moniker solidified by the end of the month. Head over to our facebook page and comment on the contest post to add yours. There will be a vote and the lucky person who submitts the best name will win a dozen mini cupcakes. Perhaps I should let you know what this new cupcake is. It is a moist banana cupcake with butterscotch buttercream.

Good Luck!

Valentine's Day

February 07, 2013

Well, we missed all of January so we’re just moving right along! This month our feature cupcakes are Pink Velvet, a delicious white chocolate cupcake with cream cheese buttercream and Cinnfull, a marbled cinnamon and vanilla cake topped with cinnamon buttercream.

We’re also gearing up for Valentine’s Day. This year we’ve got some new sweets to add to our list. We’ve been working really hard around here making macaron magic, and we now have lovely french macarons available for special order. We will have some available on Valentine’s Day in the shop, but to avoid disappointment please place your pre-orders.

French Macaron flavors are as follows. Chocolate- A delicate chocolate shell filled with a luxurious dark chocolate ganache Raspberry- Just that pure and simple. A raspberry shell filled with raspberry confiture. (Or as we Southern Albertans call it…jam, but confiture sounds so much more refined!)

AND just for Valentine’s Day we have Rose and Champagne macarons. Just a hint of rose in the shell and filled with a delightful champagne swiss buttercream. There are lots of other in house features, so come in and check them out!

Because Valentine’s Day is our busiest day of the year, we strongly recommend pre-ordering your goodies to avoid disappointment. The above image is one of our special Valentine cakes also available for pre-order. We also have Conversation Heart cakes available for order.
To place your order, please call 403-327-4990
