I grew up baking beside my Mum, Eileen. We share the same joy of feeding people; family, our friends. Others often asked “does she get her baking skills from you?” to which she’d reply, with sparkling eyes, “Yes, but she took it much further than me”. She was proud and for that I’ll carry on with her love for baking.
Crema was born out of a spirit of entrepreneurship, a longing to pour myself into something that would feed my creativity and a way to earn a living. I started out small at the local farmers market. Every week I’d prepare a variety of cupcakes, scones, and various pastries. Friday mornings became an anchor in my life. I loved the anticipation of a queue forming in front of my table of pastries I’d poured my heart into. Sometimes a market goer would backtrack to tell me that their croissant tasted like butter, or their cupcake was the best they’ve ever had. Those moments are what made me want to become better than what I was.
If you don’t want a generic supermarket cake, if you want to serve cake to your clients, guests, friends, family, and have them associate you with quality and taste then let us create a cake for you!
At Crema we LOVE fresh florals and we love using them to adorn our cakes. We travel all over southern NB to find the best, most lush flowers we can get our hands on! And always a couple of days ahead to allow them to open up into their natural beauty.
Quite possibly the most sought after cookie, the macaron is a delicate meringue cookie sandwich. What makes them special are the delicious fillings and buttercreams. We love adding them for their pastel colours and their eye catching lacy ridges.
You won’t find a lick of margarine or shortening around here! We love the richness, creaminess, and natural taste of butter for baking so much that we’ll never change! Check out our flakey layers in those croissants!
