Hi, I’m Shalyn Orange and I’m the owner and cake artist behind The Canadian Cupcakery.
Born and raised in Toronto, Ontario (Canada), baking was always a part of my life. When I was younger I spent many sunny afternoons with my grandmother making tarts, pies and cookies in the kitchen. I always loved how happy it made others to share our baked treats. I suppose this was the beginning of my passion for baking.
Much has happened since I was sitting covered in flour making pie crusts… I grew up, got a bit taller and wiser, I went off to business school, then decided to move to The Netherlands in 2014 to finish my Master’s degree off with a new experience and ended up falling in love with this wonderful country and a boy.
I never thought I would be opening up my own bakery, however when the opportunity presented itself, I knew I had to take a risk and follow my passion by opening up The Canadian Cupcakery.
