Rebecca was born and raised in Toronto and her love and passion for food developed early on in the kitchen with her family, specifically her Nana (grandmother) and dad. Instead of cartoons, she would watch every cooking and baking show on The Food Network, constantly playing “Chopped” with her own kitchen fridge and pantry as inspiration.
Rebecca studied at Western University and attended the Ivey Business School. While in school, Rebecca kept up creating fun and exciting dishes in the kitchen during her spare time, finding every excuse and celebration to bake for. Upon graduating with an Honours Business Administration degree, Rebecca enrolled immediately in Humber College’s Baking and Pastry Management program in the fall of 2017.
Becked Goods, which began as an Instagram account to share Rebecca’s pastry school adventures with friends and family, quickly blossomed into a side business. Friends of friends began reaching out with inquiries and excitedly the business grew tremendously through 2019 and in 2020, became a full time venture. With humble beginnings from her parents’ kitchen, Rebecca worked with customers individually, each creation made to order.
In October 2022, Becked Goods opened its first brick and mortar location at 684 St. Clair Ave W (Rear Unit). It is a hidden gem of a bakery, much like Becked Goods has been since its inception.
