Buying 1/2 cakes from Loblaws

I went to Loblaws at Leslie and Eastern yesterday to buy 1/2 a cheesecake. Apparently Loblaws (this store only?? I'm not sure...) no longer sells 1/2 cakes because they don't have the containers to hold them in. It's a shame that Loblaws no longer offers this because sometimes, 1/2 a cake is all you need and it's obviously cheaper than buying a whole cake that a family can't finish. Is there a place out there (Dominion, Sobeys, Longos etc.) that still sells 1/2 cakes? I don't mean 1/2 slab cakes, but 1/2 of a round 15 inch black forest cake or caramel crunch cake etc. Thank you!

  1. as far as I know, dominion at vic park/daforth sells half cakes - there was a time i was obsessed with them. but, to be honest i havent specifically looked at them for a while, but i am prettyyyy sure they are still there! i havent checked at loblaws at vic park/gerrard recently but they might still have them?

    1. Or just order a half slab from a Chinese bakery.

      1. Dominion at Bathurst & Lawrence sells 1/2 cakes.

        1. Why dump on Loblaws? There are lots of alternatives, including bakeries who will make a small amount, just for you, and not from a factory line.
