A Treat to Experience
A Sweet Cross-program Collaboration
Who doesn’t enjoy a good dessert? Have you ever tried a tasty baked treat you couldn’t get enough of? Well, our project will deliver tasty treats to satisfy your sweet and savoury cravings!
As students of the Web Development 2504 class, we collaborated with students of the Bake Management and Entrepreneurship 253 class to spearhead the ultimate BAKE project. This project empowered the bake students to create their own businesses along with a website to sell their products to the Humber College populace and persons within the GTA area. As web development students, we were responsible for creating a captivating informative website for our bake team clients Sweet n’ Savoury Buns (S’n’S), to help them market not only their delicious product but themselves as well.

Website Development Phases
In order for this project to be successful, there were many activities and coordination involved in delivering a captivating website to our baking clients. The three main phases of our website development project included: discovery, design and development. During each stage, both teams worked assiduously to ensure that the finished results were according to expectations.
Phase 1: Discovery
During this phase, our main objective was to understand our clients, their business idea, and their product. It was also crucial for us to understand their requirements and expectations for the website. To meet this objective, questions were formulated and posed to the baking team to ascertain the design, style, and functionality of the website. A proposal was then created and sent to our clients to clarify their needs and deliverables.
Phase 2: Design
During this phase, we were able to envision how the website will appear and function for our client. Thus, we examined three main WordPress themes, identifying the pros and cons to make a choice. Canape was selected as it not only met the needs of our client but also looked appealing. Canape met our clients’ need for functionality and aligned with their visual preferences.
Phase 3: Development & Implementation
Our main goal for this stage was to complete the website keeping in mind our clients’ requirements and needs. Members of the development team worked together to ensure that this process was smooth sailing and successful. This included creating the navigation menu, footer, and relevant pages to make our website user-friendly and easy to navigate. Last but not least, we were given the opportunity to give a presentation about the final product to the baking team and officially hand over the website.
The Baking Process
On April 6, 2022, our baking clients were busy creating sweet and savoury treats in the kitchen at Humber College North Campus. Moist and hand-crafted Sweet and Savoury buns were successfully prepared and baked by our clients. The unique assortment of flavours available includes S’mores, Chocolate Strawberry, Pizza-Pepperoni, and Roasted Garlic Rosemary, pre-packaged in a box of 4 and ready for sale.
