About Us

Our story

Our family moved to Canada in 1999, leaving a refugee camp in Thailand. We were sponsored by a Canadian family and grew up in Riverton, Manitoba. This was where my passion for baking started.  Our sponsor taught my mother and I how to bake breads and other delicious sweet treats.  I would often smell freshly baked goods everyday. With fresh ingredients, family recipes and simple flavours, my interest for baking and cooking started at a young age. 

I continued to work in the food industry for many years after we moved to Winnipeg. I decided to study to be a pastry chef at Red River College and obtained new skills and inspiration which is the base of The Cupcake Corner.

Since 2008, The Cupcake Corner has continued to be a mainstay in a bakery and restaurant rich Winnipeg. We use butter and fresh ingredients, to scratch bake our cupcakes every morning. By doing this we can deliver a delicate, moist cake balanced with a fluffy butter cream icing. Over the years, we have been developing recipes and have recently introduced, slices, French macarons, cookies and other sweet treats. 

Stop by and pick up your treats to go, have them delivered to your door, or talk to us about catering your special event. We are sure that you will enjoy them as much as we do!
