Simply Sweets was started by Jen Allpress, who specializes in unique custom cakes. Last year she moved her business from Westfield Vancouver mall to its new location on East Mill Plain Boulevard in Vancouver. Allpress employs a team of talented people who create not only artistic cakes, but an assortment of baked goods, including cupcakes, muffins, cookies, scones and brownies. Simply Sweets also sells espresso beverages, and although there isn't much room for dining in, the convenient downtown location makes it a piece of cake to pop in and pick up some goodies on the go.
