While she may be butchering exclusively cakes and buttercream these days, you wouldn’t know it looking at her creations. Hollie is the owner of Punk Rock Pastries and together with her small team, they’ve baked and sculpted their way not only into the mouths and stomachs of locals  – but also into shows such as the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, The Mighty Ducks and Turner and Hooch.

Today, Steveston is one of Richmond’s most beloved and bustling neighbourhoods, with lots to see and eat for locals and tourists alike.
