Miranda O., Baker + Owner

Miranda O., The Sweet Retreat, Owner

Etobicoke, ON

At a young age Miranda was baking birthday cakes for family and with their encouragement she was inspired to pursue a hospitality course in high school. After high school Miranda landed a job in a small-town grocery store bakery and loved it. Not long after she realized baking was her calling. Miranda continued to take baking courses at a college and earned a diploma in Baking Arts and a certification through the Bakers Association of Canada.

Now on a mission is to create small batch, handcrafted marshmallows, each with their own enticing flavour, Certified Bakery Specialist C.B.S. Miranda, Owner of The Sweet Retreat, is definitely on her way.

Where did the inspiration for the business stem from?

The business idea came from years in the bakery industry, I identified a gap when I made marshmallows from scratch for my friends and family. Everyone was baffled and had either never heard of handmade marshmallows or knew they could be made at all…and so that’s how it began, and I took the idea and ran with it.

I like having a product that is unique and impossible to find anywhere else, it makes it special. I also love how versatile they are and how many flavours I can make and that I can tailor each and every order for each and every customer.
