HomeBaker was started by 2 friends from Toronto, Canada during the pandemic. Like everyone else during that time, we were stuck at home, with my young nephew was living downtown with us. and saw all the delicious baked good trending on TikTok. The sad reality? We had NO IDEA how to bake! So here’s what we did


The first thing we did was log on togoogle and search for easy recipesto bake and got 70 Million searches! Uh Oh!

We took the plunge and chose thefirst chocolate cake recipe onthe list!


The next thing we did was write down the list of cake ingredients and made our way to the closest grocery store to buy our chocolate ingredients. And yep, you guessed it! Got stuck in terrible Toronto traffic!


Finally we reached the grocery store and made our way down the daunting ‘Bakery Aisles’. We needed 200 grams of flour, 50 grams of cocoa, 1/2 cup sugar, a bit of baking powder and soda, salt, handful chocolate chips, walnuts.. blah blah.. Unfortunately, you can’t just buy “1 Teaspoon baking soda”


The Next hour was actually fun! We put on some nicetunes, made our lil nephew wear a cute kids apron and hat,and actually baked our delicious chocolate chipcake! We then sat down in front of the TV and the 3 of us finisihed the entire cake in 1 go!

But then came the reality check of how we had somehow we used 6 different bowls, 14 spoons and had leftover ingredients for the next 10 years!


As we sat exhausted and tired, our nephew casually said “Wouldn’t it be cool if we could just bake and eat and everything else was magic like Harry Potter?”

The next step was in Slo-Mo, as my buddy and I looked at each other and just nodded in unision. “Yes it would, yes it would”

And THAT is how HomeBaker was born!

We thank you for joining us in this journey and hope we are accomplishing our goal of MAKING BAKING FUN!
