“We fell in love baking.” – Gloria Bednarz, Artist | Owner

Guenter Hess, Artist | Owner and Gloria Bednarz, Artist | Owner

Welcome to The Art of Cake! We're Gloria Bednarz and Guenter Hess, your pastry chefs and the creative spirits behind each of our delectable masterpieces.

I’m Gloria, and I’ve been baking and decorating cakes since I was a young lady. A top of my class graduate of NAIT’s culinary program, I’ve worked with esteemed local dining establishments for years. My partner, Guenter, is an artist at heart. He’s studied art (predominantly water colours and drawing) and is a self-taught pastry expert.

In November 2007, we fulfilled a lifelong dream and opened The Art of Cake, a made to order cake company. We now offer cookies, cupcakes and confections too. Most recently, we opened our first store in the heart of downtown Edmonton.

We invite you to visit us at our new location and enjoy a fresh-baked French cruller on us!
