I’m Tracy Dueck, Owner of Tracycakes Bakery Café. I was a ‘stay at home’ mom for most of my adult life, while raising my children. When they started pursuing their own paths, I took some to reflect and focus on what I wanted to do, to identify my passions and dreams.
I have always loved to cook and bake for my loved ones, so I dreamt of offering a beautiful place where people could connect with their families and friends—a place offering warm smiles and delicious home-made food. Life happens over coffee, so why not sweeten the experience with cupcakes, charm, and an inviting ambiance.
In 2006, I took the leap and opened my first Tracycakes Bakery Café. I was so humbled to watch people come to my little restaurant. They came for soups, wraps, and sandwiches made with the freshest ingredients. Our signature item is cupcakes, in over 40 flavours in fact. Our customers really loved our cupcakes, always made with fresh buttercream icing, and their fun names like Ra-Ra-Raspberry and Lovely Bunch of Coconuts.
We also added High Tea to our menu, which was popular among mothers and daughters, girlfriend catch-up sessions, and special occasions, such as bridal showers, baby showers, and birthdays!
Customers started making cupcake orders for their weddings, and then we added a line of specialty cakes. We call our brides #Tracycakebrides. Always going back to our vision of sharing food as love, we are honoured every time a Tracycakesbride chooses us to celebrate their happiest of days.
We have two locations, located in Abbotsford and Murrayville, and a dedicated Tracycakes team.
A random fact (or two) about yourself. I’m a wife of 30 years, a mom to three beautiful children, and a grandma to three gorgeous grandchildren!
