Trying Times are Times for Trying

The business that has helped raise our family, that has served and taught the Ottawa area for over 47 years, was preparing to close up shop in July. With the current owner Brian Bloomfield’s health declining and the hardships of COVID-19, uncertainty got the best of us.

Since July my partner Andrew Lacelle and I have fought hard to continue on my families legacy. It’s been a trying month with many questions. But we asked all the right people. We are so proud and thrilled to announce that we are now the proud owners of Artistic Cake Design!

My name is James Bloomfield, I am the son of Brian Bloomfield and grandson to Artistic Cake Design founder Russel Bloomfield. I have been a decorator here for 5 years now and I have seen first hand how cake can make a moment. It’s the centerpiece to a grand gesture for the people we love and support. I’ve seen it in community celebrations my entire life… and if the sugar doesn’t get my heart going right now, that sense of congregation that we all miss so very much definitely will. We have an amazing team working with Andrew and I to adapt to these difficult times. We are looking forward to making more moments with you as we grow and adapt together!

IMPORTANT: As we make the transition online and implement best practices during the pandemic, we kindly ask for your patience! Please understand that at the moment we can not support walk-ins to our store. We Re-open September 1st for Scheduled Pick-up ONLY for Cake & Cake Supplies. If you know what you're looking for, kindly shoot us an e-mail and we'll do the shopping for you! Inventory will be online soon to browse, order and pick-up.

Trying Times are Times for Trying,
