Hello!  I'm Shobna.

Having made the leap from a corporate engineering firm into a world of being immersed in butter, flour and chocolate, I bring 20 years of passion, knowledge and experience as a creative artist, business owner, mentor, educator, and forward thinker to help you fulfil your vision and goals for your small business.

In the little pockets of time between work, baking and cooking for my family, I enjoy music (from Ella Fitzgerald to 90s hiphop/R&B and beyond), travel whenever we get the chance, dabble in art with my son and collect a copious amount of stationery. I am also a certified Marvel fan.


I'm a pastry chef who used to be an engineer.  

Wait, what?
Shobna Kannusamy

Welcome to this little journal of delights and stories. Have fun with the recipes - change it up a little, make it your own. Baking has always been about love for me. 

I hope this space inspires you to pull out your kitchen scale and measuring spoons, pre-heat your ovens and create some magic and joy in your kitchen. Enjoy!

Working with Shobna, I had the privilege of seeing first-hand the depth of her creativity, the ease with which she connected with others and made them feel valued (employees, customers, clients, vendors, media), her collaborative nature, and her desire to create a working environment that enables people to thrive. She is one who inspires through her actions, while also helping others see their own potential by bringing out the best in them.

She is bravissima!

I had the chance to start partner with Shobna for the 11th edition of the Vancouver Hot Chocolate Festival. It was the first time working with such great Pastry Chef and all team enjoyed having her around. She is a terrific teacher! We are amazed with Shobna‘s knowledge of ingredients, techniques and capacity to foresee the outcomes. Her attention to details is impressive and we are so grateful she shared with us her expertise.

I have had the pleasure of working alongside many talented sweet companies but there is no one like Shobna.  In addition to her talent in the kitchen, I love how easy and efficient it is to work with her. She is  thoughtful, highly organized , creative and laser focused on her clients and customers. When it was time for my wedding, I shared my vision with her, gave her full creativity! This is the level of trust she builds, and I am so grateful we crossed paths all those years ago.
