Chick Boss Cake isn’t new – they have been creating beautiful and tasty wedding cakes, cupcakes and favours and selling them on-line for almost four years. However, Saturday was the unveiling of their bricks and mortar (cake and buttercream?) location at 381 Talbot St in St. Thomas, and co-owners Rebecca and Chad Hamilton seemed excited (as did those who stopped in) about the elegant shop which perfectly matches their pretty products.
Rebecca was on the road to a career as a police officer when she discovered a passion for baking which led her to start Chick Boss Cake. She does the designing, baking and cake creation while husband Chad handles orders and much of the customer relations role, along with another full-time job. They moved to St. Thomas from London a year ago – a match which they also seem to find pretty sweet. Chad beams, “You can find everything you need here without the busyness.” Both also note that the help they received from the Small Business Enterprise Centre in St. Thomas was invaluable.
Cupcakes (they're delicious!) will be available at the shop with a few signature flavours and some new ones on a rotating basis. You can stop in to find out about their custom cakes and other products, or check out http://www.chickbosscake.com/ and Chick boss Cake on Facebook.
