These are strange days. It constantly feels as though we’re living in a movie or having a bad dream that we can’t wake up from. This worldwide pandemic is scary and heartbreaking. It’s crippled entire countries overnight and killed thousands. It’s not the flu. It’s not anything to laugh at or be pushed aside. I’m urging everyone to stay safe. Make the sacrifices, cancel everything, remain in the bubble of only people you live with, go to the stores as sparingly as possible, wash your hands, sanitize, sanitize, sanitize! I promise it will be worth it when this is all over. The sooner we can all follow the rules, the sooner we can all hopefully go back to our regular lives. Nothing going on in your life right now is more important than your health and the health of others. Unless you’e a healthcare worker or work in essential services – PLEASE STAY HOME.

I believe once this ends we will all appreciate the little things and personal contact that much more. We will hopefully slow down, take a step back, and take less for granted. I think eventually the world will heal and be even more beautiful than it was before.


Bye for now!


As many of you already know, I’ve taken a step back from custom orders and slowed down with the business this past year. I have run this little business for over 10 years now. Working 16+ hour days every day was my standard – in fact it wasn’t uncommon for me to pull multiple all nighters in a row because the perfectionist in me wouldn’t let me stop. I saw so many clients from birthdays to engagements, wedding showers & stags to weddings, baby showers to kid’s parties. It’s been honour to be a part of so many of your milestones and traditions – I have absolutely LOVED it! However I noticed I was missing out on a lot of these special moments in my own life because I was always working. I’ve now come to a point in my life where I need to shake things up! I still love what I do and am passionate about caking – but I also need to focus on the health and happiness of myself and the people in my life. For this reason, I made the difficult decision to temporarily shut down WPFP while I revamp and come up with a new plan of attack. I’m currently honing my skills in some different aspects of the baking world – challenging myself daily and trying new things. Right now it’s fun to have a change of pace and use a different part of my brain for a little bit. I can’t wait to translate all of the new stuff to your projects when I do come back. For now I just want to say a belated THANK YOU to everyone for all your continuous trust, love and support. A big shout out to all my vendors, followers, friends, family, fellow business owners I’ve met along the way (I see your hustle!) – and most importantly all of my amazing clients! I couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you! See you soon!


The end of an era…


The popular TV show “Once Upon A Time” has come to a close after 7 seasons. As many of you know, it was filmed in and around Vancouver for the duration of it’s run. Emily was lucky enough to be hired to work on this show many times. She was often called upon to create something out of the ordinary and unique. Some of the projects included countless mid-evil cakes, a seafood buffet (that contained no real seafood!), a towering macaroon topiary, plenty of pies, and faux chocolate soufflés. Emily feels so lucky to have played a small role in this magic over the years and work with such an awesome crew! Thanks for everything guys!

Fifty Shades


We’re excited to finally share that Emily created the wedding cakes for the newest Fifty Shades movie – Fifty Shades Freed!

She crafted a towering tiered cake – nine fondant cakes total including the separators. On set, Emily and her sister, Melissa, delicately placed hundreds of flowers in between the tiers and billowing on the top. Emily also made several single tiered raspberry filled vanilla cakes that were served and eaten during the scene.

It was a huge project that ended up being a ton of fun! We’re grateful for the opportunity!

A cake for a Grammy win!


Band Portugal. The Man celebrated their Grammy win for “Feel It Still” with this custom rice cooker cake. It’s said that when they first started they bought a mini van, a rice cooker and a 5 pound bag of rice. They toured for a year living in the van and eating nothing but rice. Clearly it was worth it!

It was a privilege to create a cake for these awesome guys. This rice cooker was a chocolate cake with almost an entire bottle of Jameson thrown in for good measure.

Who else can’t get “Feel It Still” out of their head?

A styled shoot fit for a Queen


A styled shoot we collaborated on in Alberta last year is featured on the Wedluxe Magazine website! The wedding set up was inspired by Queen Elizabeth I.

We shot at two dreamy locations – the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise and Fairmont Banff Springs. It was such a fun day getting to meet and work with such a talented group of vendors. View more images from the day and see additional vendors here.

Best Tasting Wedding Cake


When Pigs Fly Pastries competed for the title of “Best Tasting Wedding Cake” at the 7th annual BC Wedding Awards – and won!!

Emily presented voters and judges with a raspberry filled vanilla cupcake topped with a lime burst buttercream.
She had scowered the city high and low to find the rare “finger limes” she used on the Food Network last year to use in the lime icing, as well as garnish on top – making sure each taster got the perfect amount of lime flavour explosion.

Following the awards, Emily had this to say: “Although I’ll forever be the crazy finger lime girl after that speech, I am so proud to have been recognized by such amazing industry peers. I truly believe all cakes need to taste as good as they look, and put so much love into each one from start to finish.
Cheers to my talented fellow cake ladies who take the industry by storm, my beautiful friends and family who understand why they rarely get to see me, and to all of you for your continued love and support! A huge congratulations goes out to all the nominees, finalists and winners on another great year – can’t wait to see what everyone has in store for 2017!”
