About City View Bakehouse
Prince Edward Island’s City View Bakehouse was created by Jennifer Prinz in 2009 in order to fuel her lifelong passion for baking beautiful things.
A licensed and fully inspected residential bakery, City View Bakehouse bakes to order throughout the week but also has a vibrant little retail location at the Charlottetown Farmers Market, every Saturday from 9 am to 2 pm. You can always count on finding a great selection of cupcakes, cookies, brownies, cinnamon buns, cake lollipops, and French macarons at City View’s very popular booth.
Is there a particular type of flower that’s significant in your relationship? Put it on your wedding cake. City View Bakehouse specializes in creating delicate gum paste flowers, also known as sugar flowers. They are that special extra touch: each handmade flower is an intricate work of art, molded and dusted to reproduce the original bloom in edible flower paste.
When it comes to wedding cakes, raw talent isn’t quite enough to make you a local superstar like Jennifer has become. She continues to travel all over them continent (and beyond) taking any additional training that she can. Here are some recent highlights:
Toronto: Advanced Sugar Flowers with Ron Ben-Israel. This world-renowned Master Cake Artist is the host of TV show Sweet Genius and is a celebrity in the wedding cake world. He taught Jennifer how to craft delicate
orchids, sweet peas, calla lillies, roses, and peonies out of sugar.
Paris: The French Macaron. In Paris, France, Jennifer mastered the art of making French macarons. There is currently nobody else selling these specialty desserts in Prince Edward Island. While in Paris, Jennifer also took classes in mousse and tarts.
Kitchener: Haute Couture Cakes. This advance course has given Jennifer insight on creating glittery accessories (borrowing inspiration from the fashion industry) to make wedding cakes sparkle. From creating flowing fabric out of fondant to fashioning perfect sugar pearls, this class has given Jennifer the knowledge needed to add some bling to your wedding cake.
I'm just a girl, mom and wife who loves everything about weddings. I hope to inspire you!
