Whisk Cake Company is owned and operated by Tanya Garratt in Kelowna, BC.
Tanya, a member of the Canadian Cake Decorators Guild and the Baking Association of Canada, went to school to become a Chef, and although cooking took her to many places throughout the world, a job working in a grocery store bakery years ago made her realize her true calling. After many years in restaurant kitchens, Tanya quit cooking for a living to pursue her love of cake decorating.
Although her formal Red Seal Chef training gives her a step up above the rest, she decided to further her career in confection by attending what most people consider the Harvard of cooking schools, the Culinary Institute of America. There she was able to train specifically in Wedding Cake Design where she learned cutting edge techniques and honed her skills in making edible sugar flowers. Tanya continues to upgrade her knowledge by returning to the Culinary Institute of America yearly. In December of 2012, Tanya was very lucky to be able to take a Masters Sugar Flower Course from the amazing Ron Ben-Israel, who is the owner of the infamous Ron Ben-Israel Cakes in New York City,and the host of the Food Network TV show, Sweet Genius! To take her education even further, Tanya is taking another Sugar Flower course from Ron Ben-Israel in March, 2014 where she will continue to hone her sugar flower making skills.
In early 2011, Whisk Cakes upgraded and moved into our 1500 sq. foot store-front production bakery located at 203 Rutland Road N. With this move, we were able to add a consultation area, which has a wide variety of wedding related reading material, wireless Internet and a Smart TV
In early 2018, we expanded, taking over the entire building, and adding our cafe, featuring Tug 6 Coffee, and our dessert bar complete with individual savory and sweet selections that change daily.
Very excitedly, in 2020, we had the amazing experience of shooting a TV show, called Project Bakeover, with none other than Food Network Canada. At this time, they completely renovated our cafe, which is now called Whisk Bakery + Cafe. We now bake (every morning) amazing pastries, cinnamon bun knots, croissants, and so much more!
