The White Apron started out as a 400q ft bakery in the heart of Penticton, where walk-in customers came for coffee and croissants, and a growing number of wedding and celebration cakes were also produced. As the business outgrew its original location, The White Apron relocated to a larger cake studio (appointment only) in Naramata. It is the only licensed and inspected commercial cake studio in Naramata.
About the Cake Artist:
Amanda Perez has spent her entire life baking, but after graduating with a Communications degree from Simon Fraser University, decided to pursue the sweeter side of life and attend pastry school. The year in pastry school was an eye opening experience and was the start of a number of years working in some of Vancouver’s top fine dining establishments on the pastry line. In 2011 she and her partner moved to the Okanagan, where she spent two seasons in the pastry kitchen at the acclaimed Mission Hill Family Estate, before opening her own business, The White Apron, in downtown Penticton in 2012.
Today, Amanda and her husband and their two children live on an apple orchard (where The White Apron produces its delicious orchard pressed apple juice, Naramata Natural Juice), and The White Apron’s inspected cake studio looks out over the apple orchard.
