TRACY DUECK

CEO / OWNER

Tracy Dueck has always had the gift of entertaining. From early on, the former stay-at-home mother of three always had a plateful of goodies on hand and the welcome mat out for her guests. During those years, Tracy honed the skills that led her to open the very first Tracycakes Bakery Café in 2006.

With her signature cupcakes and delicious homemade menu items, Tracy treats her Tracycakes guests with that same homespun hospitality. Today—together with daughters Melissa and Jessica—she operates two Tracycakes locations: in Abbotsford and Murrayville.

A member of Gro Your Biz, the Langley, Abbotsford Chambers of Commerce, and many other fine organizations, Tracy is actively involved in the communities in which she does business. Through the numerous charities Tracycakes supports—and the year-round special events and promotions her company offers—Tracy continues to make the world a better place, one cupcake at a time. In her off-hours, Tracy and her husband of 32 years, Ray, enjoy family times at the cabin, gardening, and spending time with their two delightful grandsons, Jonah and Fox , and their granddaughter, Sadie Rae.
