SWIRL Custom Cakes & Desserts founder and head Cake Designer Lynnette MacDonald earned her reputation as one of Canada’s most sought-after cake designers by channeling her unrivaled perfectionism and meticulous attention to detail into creating unique cakes and cupcakes for over 20 years.

Lynnette’s passion for baking started at an early age: in her mom Marie’s kitchen where fresh baked bread and homemade kitty cat birthday cakes were a staple. It is here where Lynnette learned how to perfect and recreate recipes that had been in the family for generations.

In 2002, Lynnette decided to convert passion to profession, and trained in the art of cake design and decorating. Lynnette proudly shares her family recipes today – with her discerning clientele who seek delicious desserts, perfectly decorated in SWIRL’s kitchen.

SWIRL Custom Cakes & Desserts is more than just an outlet for creativity – it is another outlet to positively impact the lives of others. SWIRL is active in the Calgary community, encouraging young pastry chefs to pursue internships within our kitchen. SWIRL Custom Cakes & Desserts is active in charity work, sponsoring several charity events as well as the arts and entertainment scene in Calgary and surrounding area. A philanthropic approach to business is strong part of our business model and we encourage our staff to take part and give back to the Calgary community.
