SmashCake Desserts was created by me, Ashley Akey, in July 2011. It began while I was working in an office downtown. I missed my old cooking job, and found myself with lots of time to play in the kitchen at home. As a result, I was constantly bringing snacks in for my co-workers. Then I was bringing in snacks for the other offices in the building, and before I knew it, people were asking me to make treats for their events. Let's just say one thing led to another, and SmashCake was born.
The timing couldn't have been better either. The food scene in Toronto is booming right now, but not necessarily because of restaurants. A new breed of food-nerd has emerged, armed with a series of mobile social media outlets, a hungry belly and a huge amount of support for the pop-up and food truck vendor. As I found myself landing in the "pop up" category, I started participating in "pop-up events" - things like Toronto Underground Market (TUM), TO Food Fest and AwesTruck by Food Truck Eats. These sort of events have allowed me to build a brand, and have given me an opportunity to showcase some of my best treats while interacting directly with my customers - one of my favourite things to do.
These last few years have seen many "cakes, cupcakes & general chaos". Looking forward to more!
