Locally owned Whisk Cake Company has had a great end to the 2012 wedding season.
Recently Tanya Garratt, owner of Whisk Cake Company learned that she was named “Finalist in the Professional BC Wedding Awards”.
Tanya was one of only two in the Okanagan to win at the awards and was awarded finalist in the Category of Best Wedding Cake Design.
“Placing second as Best Wedding Cake Design in all of British Columbia is a huge accomplishment," said Garratt.
"It is great that the Okanagan was recognized in the Professional BC Wedding Awards. There are so many great Pastry Chefs in British Columbia and to be among the best in British Columbia in Wedding Cake design is really exciting, it was a great way to end the very busy 2012 wedding season."
Tanya also competed in the 2012 Gingerbread Competition held at the Parkinson Rec Center – A fundraiser for the Boys and Girls Club.
“We entered into the Chef category, going up against some of the large pastry kitchens here in the valley was daunting and I knew that if I was going to do this I was going to go all in and spare no expense or time.”
After 3 weeks of continuous work and more than 75lbs of gingerbread the re-created “North Pole” was complete. After a stressful delivery and a long day of the community viewing all the displays, Tanya Garratt of Whisk Cake Company came out on top with the win.
Tanya says that there were a lot of amazing displays at the competition and is honored to be chosen as the winner for 2012. She wanted to pass along congratulations to all the competitors as the Boys and Girls club is the real winner of the competition.
The “North Pole” is now on display at the Okanagan Hospice House for all the families to enjoy during the holiday season.
