Meet Michaela & Helmut Bork
It was a few years ago that baker Michaela Bork noticed that many couples were travelling to other communities to order wedding cakes. She thought to herself, “It’s crazy to drive to another city just for a cake!” So she decided to start Butter and Cream Cakery, and says that business started to boom right away. That was 2012, and business has increased every year since.
Michaela and her husband, Helmut, moved to Smithers from Germany more than 15 years ago. Helmut had visited Smithers on fishing trips and was very drawn to the area for its vast spaces, lakes and mountains. So when they decided to immigrate to Canada, they chose Smithers. The couple has owned a bed and breakfast for many years, but Michaela, who used to be a baker back in Germany, decided that the need for a local place to purchase cakes was so great she had to start her own baking businesses and now runs both businesses from home.
Both Michaela and Helmut are outdoors lovers. Though their businesses take up a lot of their time, they try to carve out time for fun too. Helmut still enjoys fishing, one of the things that drew him to Smithers in the first place. Michaela spends a lot of time in the spring and summer doing gardening and yard work, and both like to just sit outside and enjoy their beautiful view of the mountains and glacier.
