Anywhere to get a decent b-day cake on the Danforth?

  • 8

We're having a party for my 2-year-old twins this Sunday, and while I'd love to bake something, I have two 2-year-olds. So, can anyone recommend a good place to pick up a ready-made cake on the Danforth? I want to avoid one of those cloyingly sweet supermarket cakes if possible.

  1. The Chocolatina and the Strawberries & Cream layer cakes from Serano on Pape are decent, and better than most grocery store cakes.

    Similar cakes are also available at Donlands Bakery on Pape and Select Bakery on Donlands. http://selectbakery.ca/b_cakes.php

    It's also possible to custom order a cake at Celena's. Haven't tried Celena's yet. http://www.celenasbakery.com/

    1. It's a bit south of Danforth, on Queen E. and Greenwood, but I adore Altitude Baking's cakes.

      1. A bit north on Donlands and O'Connor is Select Bakery. Great place.

            I was going to mention Sun Valley as that is where I buy cakes. They also carry cakes from Pauline's Pastries, you can see those here: http://www.paulinespastries.com

          2. Teatree makes custom made cakes with all natural ingredients (she dyes her icing with fruit). At danforth and jones. www.teatreecafe.com
