Meet Sheila Gordon
Sheila Gordon may very well have the sweetest job on earth. She has been baking edible works of art for over thirty years, and still she manages to stun her customers with her original and equally tasty cake designs. Living in Queen Charlotte, there probably aren’t many people who haven’t tasted one of Sheila’s cakes at some time or another. This is one of the reasons that Sheila appreciates small town living. “I personally know the majority of my clients and their personality can be brought out in their cake,” she says. Sheila adds, “I like to know my neighbour and support the small local economy.”
Cake-making for Sheila is just art that involves food instead of canvas, paints or clay. She originally began making cakes for fun and for close friends and relatives. But as word spread she was getting requests from all kinds of people, and her business just naturally evolved from there. Of being her own boss, Sheila appreciates “the freedom of creativity and the choice to work a 15 hour day or a 6 hour day.” And the best part of her job is seeing the happy faces of her customers when they look at their cake for the first time.
Baking and cooking isn’t just a job for Sheila. Even in her non-working hours she’s often in the kitchen experimenting and cooking up something delicious just for fun. Sheila feels lucky to be able to do what she enjoys for a living. “You CAN have your cake and it eat too!”
