Baker Olivia Bogacki (@livforcake) turns to cozy, seasonal desserts every time Halloween rolls around. “I love pumpkins, cinnamon, nutmeg — all of these flavors say fall to me,” says Olivia, who is based in Vancouver, British Columbia. Olivia was introduced to cake decorating in 2009 when she took a class at a local crafts store, and in 2014, she decided to continue her education by going to pastry school. “Cakes, for sure, are my favorite thing to do,” she says. “The most challenging part is that baking tends to be very precise, and I often have a vision of what I want the final product to look like. Most of the time it doesn’t get there and I want to redo it.” Her favorite part? When the cakes do live up to her standards, or even exceed them. Olivia will be celebrating this Halloween with horror movies, handing out candy to trick-or-treaters and digging into a slice or two, of course, of cake.
