If you are among the over 100 people who have visited our facility since we opened in March 2014, then you know what we are all about…for those of you that haven’t visited yet..WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR!!!?
TCC IS A ONE-STOP SHOP
The Cake Collective is a one-stop shop for the budding Bake Artist. Most members that have made the transition from “hobby-baker” to full-fledged baking businesses, started from home and thought that there would be no way that they would be able to acquire the capital involved to set up their own bake shop. Upon finding The Cake Collective, either through on-line advertising, searches or simply word-of-mouth, our members have come to realize that TCC comes equipped with all the basics …and MORE!
In less than a year since opening, The Cake Collective has acquired nearly 40 individual small businesses to join its membership! (Check out The Cake Collective Artists Page to see what are members are baking up!) The beauty of starting this shared baking facility, is that it’s more than just cake! We have members that make Kale Chips (Healthy Crunch Company http://healthycrunch.com/ ), Seasoned Flax Seed (Flaxy http://flaxy.ca/ ) and even gourmet popcorn (Sweetpop Gourmet http://www.sweetpopgourmet.com/ )!
The space allows for collaborating and of course taste-testing! The preliminary vision of what The Cake Collective would be has been quickly surpassed by the reward of seeing small businesses grow and prosper. I’m definitely not saying that there is a guarantee for success; however, you will have much more of a fighting chance when you can learn from and share experiences with your peers who are also testing out the artisanal baking market.
