Wedding Cake Emergency....PLEASE HELP!!

Ok, my sister's wedding is on Sept. 2nd, and the bakery/baker that agreed to bake the cake (back in June) just called her and said that they aren't going to do it.

Aside from being incredibly angry and generally upset, my sister now needs to find another place to make the cake. But because she will be out of the country until a few days before the wedding, I am taking up the task.

That said, I am asking all of you out there for assistance. I have called a few places already and they have basically told me that they need 2 - 3 months notice (Marmalade is already booked until October). I do have appointments with Just Temptations, Irresistible Cakes, and Sweet Boutique, and I am awaiting call backs from Dessert Trends, and A Cake Story.

Does anyone out there know of any other place that makes an excellent wedding cake? My preference is in Toronto, but I will not turn away from establishments in the GTA or outlying areas.

Please, please help. I don't want my sister to worry about this, she has enough on her plate to contend with.

Any and all assistance is emphatically appreciated.
