I love going to little towns and I often find myself going to Okotoks as it’s closer for me to go there than downtown Calgary! A super cold evening, just around Christmas I parked outside 94 Take the Cake without knowing it. So, as I was done my evening, I stopped in before heading home.
I had to wait forever for the lens on my camera to thaw out, so we get a foggy look yet mystical carrot cake! I really wanted to eat the carrot cake, so I dug into this huge piece of cake that was perfectly cooked, well spiced and just amazing! The cream cheese was divine and it was just the perfect snack for the drive home! This slice is big enough to share, which I appreciate!
Then came my Latte, I really needed this to warm up my fingers. I of course was still wearing a dress and the owner of the shop came and put this giant fluffy blanket over my lap and said I was silly. She looked at me as though I was 5 years old, but her love for me really showed me she cared for her shop and customers. It wasn’t that cold but it was a December night in Alberta! The latte though was really tasty. I didn’t need to do anything to it and it was the perfect compliment to my carrot cake.
This bakeshop was so warm and inviting, and the coziness to the shop was so hospitable. It’s a place I can see myself being in all the time if I lived in this town. The owner told me that the original “house” that the shop is in was an cold police station! How neat is that!! This cake shop is a little tucked away but it’s a must go to! Their cakes are amazing and I think next time I need to order a cake if my friends don’t want to bake one for me, I will get it from here!
