Jacquelyn Steeves

“Hi! My name is Jacquelyn Steeves, proud mom of 4, lucky wife and friend to many! I am the founder and owner of this Spruce Grove born business Cake Affair. I am an avid shopper, deal finder, up cycler of cool things, creator. I love to have a vision and see it to fruition. As the quote goes “Sometimes you just have to blow your own damn mind” and that challenge and adrenalin fuels me. Looking forward to seeing all your faces and I will leave you with this. You CAN have your cake AND eat it too! Thanks for all your support.”

The Cake Affair Story

It all began by accident really, a neighbor friend showed me how to roll out fondant and use her tools. I was a stay at home mom with a husband who worked out of town. Creating things, decorating, do it yourself projects were my gig. To tell you the truth it was my way to relax after the kids were in bed. This mama can’t sit still and it wouldn’t be out of the ordinary for me to paint an entire room on a whim at 9pm. So, I played around with fondant and some Betty Crocker cake mixes. It was fun and oddly it came so easily. Keep in mind this was the very, very early stages of any Cake Boss stuff, baking shows were not a thing yet and I am not even sure Pinterest existed? So, this became my new hobby I dabbled in here and there. Slowly I started bringing cakes to family dinners, made a few for birthdays and baby showers and people were really interested in ordering. Who knew? My kids became addicted to fondant (#kiddingnotkidding) and I became addicted to seeing what I could create.

On my 30th birthday with my family over for dinner my sister hands me a small box. Upon unwrapping it I found BUSINESS CARDS? (breathe) with the name Creative Cakes, my name, contact information and my own Facebook business page (eye twitch and panic) I was caught off guard. Unsure of myself and certainly didn’t believe in myself like she did. She kept boosting my confidence and I kept getting better and more small orders started coming. It snowballed extremely quickly. Creative Cakes became more my own style and renamed Cake Affair. A new logo. A decal on my mom van, and a website. Eventually a commercial kitchen over took my basement and now 10 years later we have opened up our own shop!

It has been a blast, a struggle, a challenge, a journey to run this business and have a family. Honestly balance is something I am not really sure exists but I am on the hunt for it and damn it I am committed to catching it! I suppose I thrive somewhat on the chaos. On the challenge. When someone asks me to create something that send me right out of my comfort zone and being able to mentor my staff and building their confidence when they think they can’t do something. “Oh ya? Just try”. Cake makes people happy. It is a conversation starter, it is a comforter, it is for celebrating and it is now more of an experience then just a “cake”. What I found I have really grown to adore is the event set up and the dessert tables. This is my passion. It lets me do all the things I love. I am usually given free reign (which satisfies the independent rebel in me), it lets me shop, it lets me see a vision to reality, it lets me decorate, use props, provide our delicious baked goods and ultimately it lets me see the customers faces beam. A side bonus is that usually my vision is a little bigger then my skill set so I get to recruit my amazing husband to build many of my props!

December marks the start of Cake Affair in its own home, our new shop. We are excited to get our family space back; my husband is excited to get his garage back. I am looking forward to setting some business/personal life boundaries and, I am super in love with designing our space for people to see and enjoy! Who knows, perhaps 5 years from now…. I see us with possibly a sit-down café inside! Gotta keep dreaming and growing!

Exceeded My Expectations

I had cake affair do my son’s first birthday cake. I was beyond amazed at the finished cake I receive from her! It without a doubt exceeded my expectations! The cake looked amazing and all 3 flavors tasted fantastic! And my son loved the smash cake she threw in for us! All in all a great experience and I will use cake affair again for further events!

I want to let everyone know I let Jacqueline take the reins and be an artist for our wedding. I trusted these reviews and recommendations…and all I can say is wow! I did zero taste testing, gave her a # and theme and she out done herself.

My cake and goodies were spectacular and EVERYONE loved it.

One problem: I should of order a larger cake!!! Everyone wanted seconds!! Girl you are talented – don’t ever stop. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.

#1 Cake Person

I have worked in the wedding industry for almost 10 years now. Jackie is the number one cake person that I recommend to my clients. She’s personable, she truly cares and she does outstanding work. Her product tastes amazing and looks amazing. I’ve worked with many other cake people as well and there are many good ones in Edmonton but she is my first go-to every time.

Outstanding Flavours

The cupcake tower at our wedding reception was a huge hit! The flavours were outstanding and the big cupcake with the custom made flavor for the groom really made his day. The biggest surprise…in addition to the sugar skull toppers we wanted, some of the sprinkles were tiny skulls too! Above and beyond! An excellent experience from start to finish.

Spectacular Cakes

Jackie has done it again! My husband and I couldn’t be happier with the spectacular cake she provided for our daughter ‘s 1st birthday. I wanted a cake that was suspended from the ceiling, and Jackie delivered! To make things even more perfect, Jackie provided us with a complimentary cake for our baby’s cake smash. The cake(s) were delicious and BEAUTIFUL. It was wonderful to work with Jackie as she is the perfect balance of professional and friendly. Thanks again Jackie, we will continue to order all of our baked goods from Cake Affair!

Repeat Customers

We ordered a cake for my mother’s 95th Birthday. It was without a doubt the most beautiful cake I had ever seen. Everyone at the party remarked how fabulous it was, and did it ever taste fabulous too! All my guests wanted to know who made it so that they could also order also. Thanks again, Jacqueline, for a wonderfully fabulous cake – just like I wanted for my mom on her special birthday! We will definitely be repeat customers!
