It is so rare to find both outstanding service and a locally made product under the same local roof here in Penticton, that I feel compelled to share my experience with your readers.
For my wife’s 50th birthday I thought I might surprise her and our party guests with a special cake. After looking in the yellow pages for a suitable local baker, I had the good fortune to call The Blue Icing Dessert Bakery on Government Street, Penticton. The young lady answering the phone suggested I visit her establishment and select an appropriate cake. When I walked in to her bakery I was delighted by her enthusiasm, and the cakes awaiting pickup by her customers. The baking looked amazing.
I was able to pick out what I hoped would be “the one” cake from a book Tiffany had at the ready, colour pictures inside to show samples of her creations.
I made my choice, and on the big day, presented the cake (which was delivered on time — to the minute) to my wife and guests.
We were all taken aback at the quality of the baking. The entire cake was astonishing. Not too sweet or heavy, beautifully decorated and absolutely perfect.
I cannot overstate how impressed we are with Blue Icing. This unsolicited letter is proof that there is a local alternative to off-the-shelf, mass-produced products.
