Crave Cupcakes began with a passion for baking.
Inspired by fresh ingredients and family recipes, we learned the art of baking on our family farm in High River, Alberta alongside our mother and grandmothers. Growing up in a busy kitchen inspired an appetite for simple, sweet indulgences made from scratch that lead to the creation of Crave Cupcakes.
We opened the first Crave Bakery in 2004 with the desire to bring our lovefor all things homemade to the city of Calgary. Using our Grandmother’s chocolate cake and our mom’s vanilla cake recipes we went to work serving the best cupcakes we knew how to bake.
Today, in each of our bakeries, our bakers love to bake. For more information on our tasty cupcakes, cookies, cakes and other simple sweet indulgences from scratch, please visit our website at Crave Cupcakes.

Thank you to all the 2018 finishers. You helped make the GFB the huge success it was. Although we had a big storm prior to the start, miraculously the rain subsided and the day turned out to be a great riding day. Unfortunately the gravel route was too muddy to allow us to hold the ride and that was a big disappointment to us all. Thank you to the volunteers from Two Wheel View and the Drumheller Sea Cadets - we couldn't have done it without you! Next year's date(s) are Friday/Saturday, June 21/22, 2019. And the Gravel Grinder will GO ON! ... See MoreSee Less
