what others are saying…

When I opened the box and saw the cookies, I thought, “Omg, are these for real?!”. Not only do they look delicious but they taste AMAZING! These are the most MOIST cookies I’ve ever eaten! They are the perfect cookie to have with my coffee & my family LOVES THEM!

WHAT IS YOUR BAKING MENU?

Our baking menu & schedule does change weekly so we encourage you to check out our Instagram or TikTok @wildandwhelm as we frequently post what we’ll be making that week. If social media isn’t your thing, we encourage you to jump on our email list!

WHEN DO I NEED TO PLACE AN ORDER?

Orders for any of our bakes must be placed by 3 PM  two days before you’re planning for pick up on Friday. Orders placed after 3 pm on Wednesday and before 3 pm on Sunday will be available to pick up on Tuesday.

HOW WILL I KNOW MY ORDER WENT THROUGH?

After ordering, you will receive an email confirming your pick-up day with pick-up details (please make sure to check your spam folder as it might end up there). One day prior to your pick-up day, we’ll send you a reminder email. If you need to reschedule your pick-up day, we require a minimum of 24 hours’ notice due to the perishable nature of our products. If your baked goods are not picked up within three calendar days from your confirmed pick up day, we will compost your items, and unfortunately, we will not be able to issue a refund. Thank you for understanding!

ARE YOU A NUT-FREE OR ALLERGEN-FREE BAKERY?

I am not a nut-free or allergen-free bakery but I always encourage you to inquire about the ingredients in my bakes so I can better guide you on your purchase. 

DO YOU DELIVER?

Unfortunately, I do not deliver. Once your order is placed, you’ll receive an email confirmation about your order with also the pick-up location.

WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?

I’m located in Ajax, ON, Durham Region, but the address for pickup will be sent to you when you order & once pickup is confirmed.

DO YOU BAKE THINGS OTHER THAN VEGAN?

My passion is 100% vegan baking, therefore, I do not make non-vegan bakes.

DO YOU BAKE NOVELTY/THEMED/CUSTOM ORDERS?

I ONLY bake for what’s listed on my website. Novelty/themed/custom cakes have their time and place, but they currently are not my passion.

DO YOU BAKE FOR WEDDINGS?

I ONLY bake what’s listed on my website. If my style suits your wedding, then I’ll be happy to bake for your special day. Please keep in mind that I do not add any extras like flowers or toppers; you will need to source these items yourself.

DO YOU WORK WITH WHOLESALE CLIENTS?

I love working with wholesale clients! If your coffee shop, restaurant, bakery, Airbnb, or market stall is looking at offering vegan baked goods, contact me for more info!

what others are saying…

Christina Willis

FOUNDER & OWNER OF WILD & WHELM BAKERY

It was hard for me to find high-quality, bakery-style vegan bakes here in Durham Region, ON that delivered a nostalgic-homey feel I was craving since becoming vegan. So I thought, if I couldn’t find it on the market to satisfy my craving, I was going to create it and serve others who might be feeling the same as I!

Perseverance and passion pushed me this year to dig into all the cookbooks I’ve collected so I could perfect my craft & fine-tune my baking techniques.

I discovered along the way that vegan baked goods should be fresh & contain no preservatives so the focus of the baked good can be on flavor.

And the best part? You don’t have to be vegan or plant-based to enjoy them. All you need is an appetite & we’ll be the best of friends 😉
