What makes us different

The Difference Quality Makes

The Best Ingredients

Whole eggs, fresh butter, organic flour, Callabeut chocolate, local Okanagan fruit, locally roasted coffee. We believe in supporting our neighbours who grow and produce beautiful food, and it makes our cakes second to none. 

Scratch Made

Our quality cakes, fillings and buttercreams are made 100% from scratch. When you order a quality cake, you know that your showstopper dessert is made 100% from scratch. None of our cakes are pre-made, and none of our buttercreams are scooped from a bucket (unlike most big box store bakeries)

Pastry Chef Owned

When you order a cake from White Apron, you are dealing with an Owner Operator. That means one point of contact –
this ensures reliability, consistency and efficiency. It also means that you are supporting small business! Thank you!
