doors of our shop (or scrolls through our site) feels taken care of.
We also have some of the finest team members. Our team is full of world-class pastry chefs who are Red Seal certified, and when we say we know cake, we mean it. We’ve even taken our commitment to perfection and excellence to a whole new level by taking Surrey to Food Network Canada. We carry the national title of the network’s “The Big Bake Champions” from our feature in the series “The Big Bake”, putting JCB, our city, and our beloved Cardamom invention on the map. Most recently, our owner Raveena Oberoi was spotted on Food Network
Canada again, but this time as a feature judge on the new show “Wall of Bakers”.
With two locations to serve you, Just Cakes Bakeshop is home to community and believes community is home. The bakeshop stands for more than just cake– it’s thrilling, it’s welcoming, and it’s so much more. Above all, the bakeshop is family.
Meet The Owner
Raveena Oberoi is the dreamer behind Just Cakes Bakeshop. She’s a baker, pastry chef, cake artist, and entrepreneur. She’s been baking for nearly thirteen years and was self-taught until 2016. In 2017, she attended Paris, France’s Ecole Belloeut Counseil and became a certified pastry chef. Since then, she’s won numerous awards for her mastery of cake, such as Van Foodster’s “Best Cake Challenge”, Food Network Candada’s “Big Bake Championship” title, Surrey Board of Trade’s Top 25 Under 25, and "Young Entrepreneur of the Year". She’s been featured on tons of home and food shows, such as the Surrey Fusion Festival, Richmond Food Festival, the Home & Garden Show at the Vancouver Convention Centre, as well as several other panels related to baking and business. She was also nominated for a Women of Distinction in BC award!
Just Cakes Bakeshop is Raveena’s “big why”. She truly believes that the community she’s built with JCB is a part of her purpose and the vessel through which she can share the importance of chasing your dreams. In her own words, “we owe it to ourselves to explore the dream side of our brains”. Raveena has expressed transparency and vulnerability on many occasions, sharing that she found light in the darkness through baking. At a time where her confidence was missing and she felt disconnected from herself, it was baking that offered Raveena solace and it was the kitchen that gave her confidence. She hopes to make the jump from dark to light a lot smaller for those who look up to her.
From watching Food Network Canada as a little girl to watching herself on Food Network Canada as a young woman, Raveena has beat the odds and paved a unique, inspiring path for herself as a passionate baker, entrepreneur, and lover of cake.
