About Us

My Journey into the world of cakes and pastries began in 1995. After working in the baking industry as an apprentice-pastry cook for 5 years, I developed a strong interest in the hospitality industry. I enrolled in a two-year program in Hotel and Restaurant Management at Fanshawe College in London Ontario. After completion of the program, I worked in different Hotel chains as a night auditor and front desk staff. While I was in this position, I came to discover that the routine nature of my work in the hotel industry was not what I wanted. My desire for something that requires some creativity, critical, as well as analytical thinking would motivate me to pursue a bachelor’s degree in Sociology at the University of Western Ontario. Once I completed the bachelor’s degree, I worked in the non-profit sector for few years and decided to follow my true passion in baking and decorating cakes.
In 2005, “Cakes By Mavis” – A boutique style cake shop was launched and I have never looked back.

At cakes By Mavis, we are committed to using the finest ingredients. All our cakes are baked from scratch and designed to suit your taste, budget and style.

Thanks for visiting our page, have a blessed day.
