Treats Baked by Stephanie

by Stephanie Markakis-Plouffe in Edmonton

Business Plan

When I was a little girl, I would always come home to find freshly baked goods that my mother had made from scratch.  The smell in my house was amazing! As I grew up, I pursued other avenues of business until one day my husband bought me a Kitchen Aid mixer.  In trying new recipes, my passion for baking began.  As I continued to bake, a dream of owning a bakery was conceived. And so my story began...

Treats Baked by Stephanie began with the simple idea:  fresh baked goods from scratch using local ingredients.  We believe that it is still possible to have all the wonderful treats that grandma used to make even with our busy lives.  Enjoying a fresh baked treat can bring such joy and take us back to memories from the past, and we want all our customers to have that experience.

We started this adventure by selling my decadent mini cheesecakes at local farmers’ markets and have evolved into making scrumptious cookies such as Chocolate Chip, Oatmeal Raisin, Butterscotch Oatmeal, White Chocolate Cranberry, Double Chocolate, the flavours are endless. We have delicious cupcakes which include Classic Vanilla, Double Chocolate, Mint Oreo and many more. Our cakes include Triple Chocolate Brownie, Strawberry Vanilla and Salted Caramel etc. Other treats you can grab from us are Cinnamon Buns, Butter Tarts, and Honey Beer Bread.

We are running this campaign to continue expanding Treats Baked by Stephanie and give more people the experience of enjoying what they grew up with, or to have that very first experience of enjoying a truly delicious treat.

Treats Baked by Stephanie is hoping to raise $10,000 to help upgrade our equipment, packaging and marketing so that we may expand our horizons and bring a little piece a magic into everyone’s home!
