Planning weddings in the Rocky Mountains is deeply inspiring for endless reasons. Of course, the majestic landscape that surrounds us is a massive source of inspiration. But beyond the scenery, the area is absolutely filled with entrepreneurs and small business owners who are doing incredible work every single day. Luckily for us, a number of those individuals are in the wedding industry and we are fortunate enough to collaborate with them. Someone doing remarkable work in the Bow Valley is this baker who makes picking a Canmore wedding cake vendor as simple as can be. Introducing Darci Weil, owner and operator of KAKE by Darci.
We have had the pleasure of recommending KAKE to countless couples and seeing their delicious cake dreams come to life. KAKE is Canmore wedding cake baker that we would recommend to any couple and we always eagerly await the unveiling of Darci’s creations. Because we adore Darci and her work, we wanted to share a bit more about her with our community. We caught up with the face behind KAKE and here’s what you need to know.
KAKE by Darci has been operational in Canmore for about four years. When she isn’t working she loved spending time with her dog Kiwi. “He’s a rescue I adopted last year – any extra time I have available I try to send with him!” Though, you can almost always find her in the bakery.
Darci worked for a bakery while in high school and after spending years as a hairstylist she felt she needed a change. Having had experience in the baking world, she knew she’d be able to adapt quickly. “I love the creative aspect of it!” she told us.
The young entrepreneur feels that Canmore is an incredible place to run a small business. “We have a tight community here! It’s great to work in a town where you don’t get lost in a list of businesses,” she explained.
As for couples looking to get married in Canmore, “This is the top wedding destination for Canada! We live in such a beautiful location. All your photos will be gorgeous from the natural beauty we have here! It’s quite effortless to have a stunning wedding here. It doesn’t matter what month you choose to get married here. You are going to end up with a picture-perfect day. Rain, snow or sunshine it’s always perfect.”
One of Darci’s biggest inspirations is Alcakeamy, “Her designs are everything I want to be!” she told us.
As for her style, she describes it as “Buttercream, simple and classic with a modern touch- but clean at the same time!” In regards to cake trends, “I’m a sucker for the semi-naked cakes. I hope they never go out of style!”
Darci’s modern twists on timeless designs make for stunning and unforgettable cakes for every wedding.
“I’m lucky because most of my clients look at my work and want to go in the same direction! I also love getting inspiration pictures of things I have not created so that I can work on a new concept! We are pretty easy going here!”
