Looking for birthday cake...

...not just any birthday cake.... I want a cake for my son's first birthday (next week). I'm looking for a place that would be willing to make one with perhaps less sugar, with real fruit and nut-free. Any ideas? The places I tried weren't willing to make a small custom cake (although I'm willing to pay for the extra work). I live in the East End, and I'm new to the city, so maybe I just don't know where to look. Any advice ?

  1. Have you tried Chocolate Heaven at Danforth and Donlands?

        Your kitchen? not intended offensively, but I have a great recipe and would share if you are a baker...may not look like a store-bought cake, but will a one-year-old care?

      2. Marvellous Edibles makes delicious cakes using fresh ingredients. I have always found the staff friendly and accommodating. I'm sure they'd be willing and able to make a custom nut-free cake. They are located on St. Clair east of O'Connor with another location on Laird.

        1. red tea box might be an interesting choice...

          1. What about It's the Icing on the Cake on Queen Street.


            If you look under "Gallery", you'll find a bunch of pictures of children's cakes she's done.

              those children's cakes look like pure icing!

              what about just getting banana bread? at one year old, kids don't care much about the cake. you can have something grown-up for the adults. this is what has been done at the past 1 year birthday's i have been too and has been a huge hit with the kids.
