Families are the compass that guides us.

Growing up in a family of avid home bakers means every festive season was especially a joyous one because that's when our extended family found time to gather in the kitchen to bake and enjoy the handmade treats and build fond memories together.

Butter Studio was started on this favorite memory of family activity and is dedicated to honoring the traditional craft of home baking but also what this act inspires – the bringing of people together.

We want to be a place where people reconnect over good food, with the community and each other. This has always been our inspiration and sense of purpose.

We regularly host events at our bakery cafe and involve ourselves in community projects to give back in ways that we can. Being involved with community projects and bringing joy and smiles to the less fortunate with our baked goods gives extra meaning to what we do.

Family has been a central support system in my journey when starting Butter Studio. Through the ups and downs, my family, husband and best friends have always been there for me.

When my father suffered a massive heart attack last year, it was one of my most difficult time but as a family we were each other's pillar of strength and are thankful that my father has been such a fighter and is currently on the road to recovery. We now make time to get together as a family as much as we can and try to make all the little moments count because life itself is always worth celebrating.

I think this quote is especially heartfelt and embodies what family means to me:

“Families are the compasses that guide us. They are the inspiration to reach great heights, and our comfort when we occasionally falter.” – Brad Henry
