Hi! I’m Rachel, and I make cakes for all of your special occasions in and around Edmonton from my fully licensed home based bakery in Spruce Grove.
Wedding cake tastings
I am always open to trying new flavours to accommodate your needs.
My name is Rachel Kaleta. I have lived in Spruce Grove since 1998. I began dating my husband Chad at the young age of 15 when I also began working at a local bakery.
In 2001 I began my cake decorating career, never fully intending for it to become what it has today. My husband I have been married since 2003. I knew from a very young age that I just wanted to be a Mom and I didn’t want to have my children in daycare.
When I had gone on my maternity leave with our first daughter, Julie (2005) I never had the thought of making a cake or 2 from home. I was encouraged by my former boss, as he must have seen my passion for it then, to make a few cakes from home.
My family and a few friends thought it was a great idea too. 2 years later we had our daughter Lauren (2007). Word soon spread about my cakes I became busier as the months went by and had many late nights of cake decorating as my days were filled with giggles from our girls.
In 2009 after researching and working with the City Of Spruce Grove and Alberta Health Services we began our journey of building our home. In October of 2010 we moved in and began building my cake kitchen the next spring. It took almost a full year and Rachel’s Cakes officially opened in February 2012.
I have been decorating cakes since 2001 with no formal training other than a few gum paste flower courses taken from a local business. I am up for any challenge and truly have a passion for what I do. I love learning new techniques, and playing with new designs. I am so thankful for everyone in my life, without their love and support I wouldn’t have the blossoming business that I do today.
Without each and every cake that I have created I wouldn’t be able to spend as much time as I do with my children… my #1 passion and for that I thank all of you! I can’t wait to make your dream cake become a reality!
