Kristen Sykes is the owner, baker, decorator and dish washer behind Sugar & Love Bakery. For as long as I can remember, I have loved to bake. My mom and I used to have weekend-long bakeathons for Christmas, and it was always my favourite weekend of the year. Creating delicious treasures for those I loved. Sugar & Love Bakery was born accidentally when I decided to make some sugar cookies in March of 2011. I shared those on Social Media and friends & family started to ask for some for their special events.
I spent 10 years working in the magazine publishing industry and left my career after the birth of our second daughter in 2015. I am a self taught baker and love to learn new skills as I build my business. My business has grown quickly and I couldn’t have done it without the love and support from my family and amazing customers.
Kristen is first of all an amazing lady who is a pleasure to work with!! She is super talented and can work with you to pretty much make any kind of cookie you could ever dream of!! She made me some amazing looking hockey jersey cookies with some old time Toronto Maple Leafs players as the theme! They were a hit, they tasted so yummy! Not to mention Kristen worked so hard to get them completed with less than a weeks notice. Thank you for all you did Kristen!- Melissa
