I'm an obsessive baker, I love painting, arts & crafts, and other Do-It-Yourself home projects. I've been illustrating ever since I could first hold a crayon to paper, and I received my first cookbook as a Christmas gift when I was in the fourth grade (my first solo baking experience was a batch of chocolate chip cookies)! After completing a fine arts high school program, I attended Kwantlen Polytechnic University and received my Bachelor of Design in Graphic Design for Marketing. And after four years of work as an in-house Graphic Designer for an award-winning supplements brand, I decided to turn my "Lucie Bakes" venture into a full-time gig.
Throughout the years, my love of crafts and baking served as a tactile creative outlet - a much needed break from long days of staring at a computer screen! In early 2017, inspired by a friend and colleague (Love Your Suds), I created my Lucie Bakes Instagram account.
Oh hey look! It's some of my photos from Baking Past. In 2012, I made my first wedding cake, and was reaaallly testing my newbie skills at piping. I even skipped an entire day at school to make sure I had enough time to complete the cake and be happy with it (Side Note: I do not condone skipping class). The photo from 2013 may be my forever favourite. I made a monster of a Gingerbread House - and it was a replica of my Grandparents' house! Aren't they adorable posing with their Gingerbread home in their real home? And every Saturday night, until I was 31 years old, we had a big family dinner at their home - and this is why I love the house so much - it's always been the family hub!
Between 2014 and 2016, I baked casually on and off, before finally creating my Instagram account in February 2017 - and I'm so happy I did! "Lucie Bakes" has definitely been my largest personal project to date! I have no employees or assistants, it's just me! At the beginning of 2019, I had the opportunity to go to Los Angeles and compete on the Food Network's holiday baking show, Christmas Cookie Challenge! My episode aired on November 25, 2019; the experience was the most fun I've ever had in my life, and winning the competition was just the cherry on top! You can read about my experience on my blog here!
August 2022 marked a huge change in my life when my twin babies, Thomas & Evelyn, came into the world! I'm now a stay-at-home mom, operating this business and making cookies during nap times and in the evening after the babies' bed time!
