Birthday cake near the Annex/Little Italy--where to buy?

Hi y'all
I have to buy a chocolate birthday cake for this evening--am located near Bloor and bathurst in the Annex and don't know the neighborhood very well. Where to go? Have a car but don't have a lot of time. Can be any type of cake except supermarket--high end is fine.

  1. Try Future's Bakery - they always have whole cakes in their fridge and they are pretty good! They are in the Annex at Bloor & Brunswick.

    If you can make it down to Queen St. W. , Dufflet Pastries is always a hit. Cake is always super moist and the icing is rich.

      thanks foodiegirl, I just rushed out and bough a whole bunch of cupcakes at the Wedding Cake Shop on college--they look great. Appreciate the tips!

        Those are my favourite cupcakes in the city. Perfect for the birthday gal/guy!

    2. You're right by Desert Trends, 154 Harbord; it's a bakery/bistro, with lovely food and great pastries and cakes.
