Our Team

Aaron Soosay


My name is Aaron Soosay. I am the founder of Canine Cakes and I’m in Year 10. I am a 15 yr old entrepreneur who is passionate about business. The idea of Canine Cakes started when my dog Coco turned 1 and we couldn’t find any cakes or treats for her. Canine Cakes was born! I’m an introvert who likes playing many different sports including Basketball
and Soccer.

F.A.I.L – First Attempt in Learning. That is something that I have learnt in life, that we should not give up. I have learnt that tough times never last but tough people do.

From the age of 10, I have been working in Flemington Markets, Sydney with my family and as such, I have developed and learned about the deeper understanding of how and what it takes to run a business. Since then I have learnt that in order to run a successful business you need determination and patience, you need to be able to get back up when you have been knocked down.

“Success doesn’t happen overnight, but it happens through hard work”

Shanzay Zubair


Hi! My name is Shanzay Zubair, and I am the C.O.O of Canine Cakes. I am currently in year 8 and come from a regional area in NSW called Tamworth. As a person who loves baking and dogs, Canine Cakes is a perfect business venture for me!

Surprisingly I don’t have a dog! instead, I have 4 cockatiels, 2 rabbits and 3 Guinea Pigs, and I love them all, no matter how long it takes to clip their nails.

Animals have a very special place in my heart. And as everyone knows “Dogs are a man’s best friend.”

It’s my goal to make every treat day for every dog unforgettable, and that’s why we have created Canine Cakes.

I have a passion for running a business as it runs in my blood.

At this age I feel that starting as young entrepreneur will help me develop skills to open a gateway in future life. I may not be able to drive, but I want to thank my parents who drive me all over town, to the point where we became regular customers at our local petrol stations.

In conclusion “Success is not final; failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts”-Winston Churchill, this quote is something I remember everyday, which reminds me that with passion you can accomplish anything.

And that’s why Canine Cakes is a not only a business, it’s my passion, it is something that I am very proud to be a part of!
