Modern Wedding Cake - Edmonton

rob1234 Apr 3, 2009 02:23 PM

Does anyone have some suggestions for wedding cakes in the Edmonton area?

We're looking for a very modern, colorful, unique design (good tasting of course) for 80-90 people in August. Google found whimsical, the art of cake, and bake me a cake but I can't many opinions on them other than that whimsical cupcakes are overrated although whimsical had the best looking cakes based on their websites.

    Had a bad experience with a Whimsical cake (cake layer fell off due to insufficient support). The cake tasted fine though and everyone enjoyed eating it.

      Sorry just remembered something... a friend was telling me about a baker in Beaumont that made cakes like the one you are looking for. No idea about the taste although I assume you would be doing cake tastings prior to ordering. http://www.legateau.ca/

      If you want something different, for her wedding a friend of mine did 3 tiers of ice cream cake from Marble Slab. And they give you a tasting session as well. I think I liked the tasting session more than the actual wedding....

      We used Whimsical for our wedding and it was all good. Funky looking (in a good way) and very tasty.

          Thanks everyone. I'll probably try to meet with a few. I've already contacted art of cake and whimsical and I'll try legateau and candace. I'm sure one of them will have what we want.

            My family uses Cakes by Janna for all occasions (including my wedding). It was beautiful, tasty and very reasonably priced

              I totally agree with pennystock. Cakes by Janna did my wedding cake as well, and it was fabulous (we got a pattern that matched my wife's dress), delicious, and well priced. I highly recommend them.

                Thanks. We actually decided to not have a cake at all. It's a very untraditional wedding and we're now just getting some desserts from the caterer.
