Does anybody have an opinion on Jubilee Cakes at Main and Gerrard in Toronto? I have seen this while driving by many, many times over the years but have never gone inside. Has anybody ever tried their cakes and/or other offerings?

    We have been ordering cakes from Jubilee for years now (a decade at least)! We love their special Jubilee cake, w/ fruit filling, but the strawberry shortcake is very good too. We always get our "special occasion" cakes from here: birthdays, baby shower, new home, you name it. Just one word of caution though. If you're ordering by phone, make sure to be succinct in spelling out the name to be written on the cake. One time, "Jeff" came out as "Jess", lol!

      Thanks so much for the reply! I have a birthday cake to buy soon and will more than likely give Jubilee a try. Have you any suggestions for what you consider to be their best birthday cake? Whipped cream or butter icing? Also, have you any idea of the prices of their cakes? What other Jubilee products would you suggest I try or do they just do cakes? Thanks again!

        Like I said, the cake we order most is the Jubilee's Supreme Fruit Cake. It's a very light, tasty cake, not too sweet. Not sure if they use butter icing, but I don't think there's whipped cream in there. We tried their Black Forest cake once. It was okay but nothing to write home about. I've always wanted to try their Pina Colada cake (and the Peach Jubilee too). One day, I'll hopefully be able to talk my hubby into it. The great thing is that you can order in so many different sizes: 8", 10 ",12", 14", 16", 18", 20". So depending on the size of your party, you're pretty much covered (their 21" x 21" cake is suitable for 120-130 people!).

        Also, I've read through their lunch menus, party trays, and dinner buffet catering (which is listed on their menu; you should stop in and pick one up) but haven't ordered anything other than the cakes.
