Let me introduce myself! My name is Laura Kalynchuk and I started my love of wedding cakes watching my aunt and uncle cater weddings and run a restaurant here in Victoria in the 80s and 90s. I started working at Thrifty Foods in 2003 and discovered a natural talent for decorating cakes. In 2005 I moved to Edmonton where I took baking and pastries at NAIT. After moving back to Victoria to start a family I worked for Butchart Gardens in their pastry department. This allowed me to increase my knowledge and skills but I decided I needed more room for creativity. When I created Schur to Please in 2009 I knew I wanted to showcase my passion and have a creative outlet!
