I'm Jenna, otherwise known as The Existential Baker. Based in Toronto, ON, I have always been moved by the vastness of possibilities that exist in this lifetime, and the undulation of the emotions and experiences within that. In sorting through the wide open space, I've learned to use dessert as a medium to celebrate our being here; to share joy with one another, to dance along with the highs and lows, to settle into a moment with a mouthful of cake and just pause.

In my graduation from punching out cookies by mom's side, to baking for fundraisers in high school, to cooking as a commis in an international culinary competition, to being a line cook, and then creating as a pastry chef, I realized at some point that I needed to plan my departure from restaurants to preserve my relationship with food. So, now that I've done that, thanks for being here as I learn to rearrange all the pieces of the next chapter; it'll be sweet, a little savoury, and full of tasting and learning.






More than just a stack of cake and frosting, each creation is unique a reflection of local seasonality, personality, and the mood that strikes. I specialise in one-of-a-kind, buttercream frosted, organic aesthetics finished with natural elements such as fruit, vegetables or flora, and strive to avoid cloying sweetness in my work.
