Staff Portraits! Today’s Culinary Superstar: Daniela Colonna

Meet Cake Decorator and Pastry Chef, Daniela Colonna, an always smiling, hugely talented member of our team. She attended George Brown College before joining our Le Dolci and advocates for anything chocolate. Today, we asked Daniela to answer 10 questions with us so we could get to know a little more about her. Here is her Staff Portrait.

Q 1. If you were a new entry to the cake case, which cake would you be?

I would be a chocolate cake with salted caramel buttercream because both those flavours are great!

Q 2. If you could be a cupcake, what flavour would you choose?

Again, chocolate and salted caramel, because it’s just too hard to look beyond those.

Q 3. Who is your favourite superhero?

Definitely Storm.

Q 4. What is your spirit animal?

A Panda, because they are cute and adorable, and they love to eat and sleep like I do.

Q 5. What is one word that describes you best?

Babyface, as I am called by my colleagues.

Q 6. What is your favourite part about being a cake baker/decorator?

I love to be a part of special celebrations and make people happy with my cakes.

Q 7. Are there any suggestions or advice you would like to tell customers?

I always advise my clients to order more cake than they think is enough, so that they don’t fall short. It is always better to have extra cake than not being able to feed all guests.

Q 8.  What has been your best creation so far?

I have been the creator of a three-foot tall Easter egg and 50 Shades of Grey themed cake, both of which are very close to my heart.

Q 9. Who inspires you the most, and why?

I consider my Grandma to be pretty awesome and am inspired by her.

Q 10. Who would you like to share a piece of cake with, dead or alive?

With the Queen, I would like to pick her brain over a slice of cake.

Our staff are in shop Monday-Friday putting cakes together for various different events and retailers. Located at 1006 Dundas Street West across from Trinity Bellwoods Park, you can see them through our store front window working their hardest to meet the demands of our beloved clients. Drop by and take a look for yourself!

Stay Tuned for our next Staff Portrait!
