Velvet Lane Cakes
Velvet Lane creates custom cakes as beautifully designed as the cafe and retail space they’re sold in.
The best part is, you can get a five-inch layered birthday cake and other items delivered from here through Uber Eats with no advance notice.
Founder Danielle Issa is responsible for the luxe interior, a standout Insta-worthy area bordered by windows on three sides complete with velvet furniture and teeny marble tables.
Birthday cakes come in options like vanilla funfetti, their signature vanilla sponge thickly laden with buttercream frosting in cute colours, crowned by the perfect sparkly cake topper.
Cupcakes ($3.50) are a great way to test out cake flavours before committing to a full custom job, indulge in a sweet treat, or quickly pick up a dessert.
Four to five flavours that change up every day include double chocolate, double vanilla, and vanilla sponge with a sweetly toasty hazelnut buttercream.
Cake bars ($4) dip sponge into chocolate and add a little decoration, resulting in a typical sweet-on-sweet but very cute pop.
A “haze” latte ($4.75) combines hazelnut spread, a shot of Hale espresso and steamed milk for a grown-up twist on a childhood indulgence.
To appeal even more to your inner child, it’s topped with an adorable design made with your choice of stencil.
Cookies ($2) are more crispy than chewy, in varieties like chocolate chip oatmeal or a vegan banana oatmeal variety made with coconut oil. They usually try to have one gluten-free option as well.
Next-day signature cakes that require 24 hours notice to prepare range from five-inch chocolate drip cakes serving 10 for $65 up to eight-inch vanilla funfetti unicorn cakes serving 20 for $165. This includes vanilla cakes in the shape of any numbers that serve 30 ($150).
Though the majority of the business is custom cakes with wild designs, this place also does items like donuts and unicorn cookies.
Absolutely everything is baked right in the store using high-quality ingredients, and you can also take lessons in foundational and decorating skills here.
