About the Twins...
It might just be two minutes, but to older twin sister Valerie that makes a world of a difference. Valerie and Victoria Friesen grew up in the kitchen where they found their passion for cooking and especially baking at a very young age. Following in their mother's footsteps, they learned to express their creativity through a piping bag. Double Take Cakes & Desserts has been a dream of the twins since grade 9 when Valerie's ten year plan/dreams horoscope project was to own a bakery. Now, at just the young age of 21 this wonderful dream of theirs has become a reality.
The twins were first introduced to the commercial kitchen world at the Steinbach Regional Secondary School in the Culinary Arts department. They also took the Wilton Courses which was just a hobby at the time, but has now has turned into a career. To enhance their skills and techniques they graduated from the Louis Riel Arts and Technology Center's Pastry Chef Program where they were on top of their class. The two competed in Skill Manitoba Pastry Chef Competition where they were rewarded for their hard work and dedication. Victoria came home with a silver metal and Valerie took bronze.
The twins got hired at Adele's Pies and Cakes and worked there for 3 years. They got the opportunity to buy Adele's portion of the bakery and they jumped right on it! That's where Kathy's Pies comes in. The twins decided to re name the Savoury Products after there influential mom Kathy!
