ISO excellent custom/sculpted cake for birthday

  • 6

Hello All,

I have a small, but important request: where can a delicious and aesthetically pleasing sculpted cake be had in the city? I'm flexible on price and size, but am really looking for something that delivers wow factor- this is for a dear friend's champagne birthday. I've searched the forums, and while there are some good leads on specialty cupcakes, a sculpted cake is what I'm after.

Locations around Yonge & Eg would be preferred, but I'm willing to travel!

  1. Half-Baked Ideas Bakery near Mount Pleasant and Davisville does custom cakes.

    1. Several friends have used and then raved about "The Cake Lady". She makes cakes that look convincingly like anything, and apparently they also taste great, too. The website is a bit garish and the photo quality isn't great, but I'm told the cakes look fantastic in real life: http://thecakelady.ca

      1. Juanita Koo at SweetThings makes wonderful looking custom sculpted cakes

        She also has a blog where you can see all kinds of examples of her work

          1. You should definately check out The Big Goose, she does the rare combination

            of taste, and looks. But always with a very personal touch, as she goes over the cake

            with you, to get a good idea of what you are looking for. She is located at Avenue rd, and

            Eglinton. 376 Eglinton west.
