November 16, 2011, Toronto – The Canadian Pastry Chef’s
Guild president Egon Keller is retiring after 21 years on the job.

Vice-president Al Criminisi will step into his shoes after
being voted in as the newly elected president for 2012 at the guild’s fifth
general meeting hosted at Montgomery’s Inn on Tuesday. Keller said he would
still be around to help out.

Cake designer Monika Paradis treated members at the meeting
to a demo on cakelettes, a cake portioned for two that’s poised to be the next
trend beyond cupcakes.  Attendees were
also invited to tour Montgomery’s Inn, one of the oldest historic sites in
Toronto that is also under threat of closure by the City.
