Introducing It List Member Pretty Sweet Co.

I am so excited to introduce to you today the lovely Vicki Manness of Pretty Sweet Co. located in Calgary, Alberta. Vicki is the talent behind the gorgeous and delicious cakes that are produced by Pretty Sweet and I am thrilled to have her joining our It List {View Pretty Sweets It List listing HERE}.

More from Vicki:

How long have you been in business? I started Pretty Sweet 5 years ago

Tell us a bit about yourself. How you got started in the industry? Was this career always your dream choice? I always I knew I wanted to be in the kitchen, I had a passion for cooking and baking from a very early age. Both of my grandmothers and my mother are geniuses in the kitchen and from as far back as I can remember I was always by their side helping with whatever they were making. Right out of high school I enrolled in the Culinary Arts program at SAIT thinking I would be a Chef, but instead I fell in love with baking and as soon as I graduated I enrolled in the Baking and Pastry Arts program. I haven't looked back since.

Boast about yourself!! I have a red seal in both cooking and baking. My cakes have been published in three magazines; The Refinery Magazine, Rocky Mountain Bride and Dote Magazine, and I am also the food editor of Dote Magazine. My favourite moment would be when I was first published in Dote Magazine in 2014, it helped Calgary discover who I was and elevate my business.

What makes your business unique? I have an old fashioned soul and an old fashioned baking style. I put a modern twist on recipes from my grandmothers, creating a unique and nostalgic style that tastes just like your grandma used to make but looks like a little piece of art.

If you could offer brides one piece of wedding related advice what would it be? I tend to book up quite quickly for wedding season, so my advice is to book 6-8 months in advance to ensure you you are able to secure your date.
