This Little Italy bakery specializes in big buttercream cakes that come in a handful of varieties like vanilla bean and red velvet. You can buy six-inch cakes ready made in the store, or customize your size in advance.

Short & Sweet Bakeshop (Assembly Chef's Hall)

This bakery’s Avenue Road location serves cakes covered in all sorts of delicious icing and sprinkles, but it’s the stall in Assembly Chef’s Hall where you can order a full-fledged cake service. For $99, you can get a birthday cake with sparklers and a bottle of Prosecco.

Though this bakery at Avenue and Lawrence is best known for its one-of-a-kind doughnuts, they also excel at beautiful cakes. Standard displays are $40, while custom, multi-tiered orders with your choice of decorations cost more.

Bake Sale (Bloor West Village)

There’s three locations of this minimal baked goods shop. Whether you’re in Etobicoke at the original spot on Bloor West, Dundas West, or Bloor West Village, you can choose from options like salted caramel cakes and festive vanilla cakes for the ultimate birthday treat.

Going against the popular adage, “Those who don’t do, teach”, this Dundas West bake shop and teaching studio makes incredible treats. Want a Pikachu cake? No problem. How about a flamingo cake topped with a pineapple? They can do that too.


SanRemo Bakery

SanRemo Bakery

Italian baked goods are the specialty at this Etobicoke mainstay on Royal York Road, but like any good bakery, they can handle whatever requests you throw their way, from simple elegant endeavours to thematic affairs.

Bunner's Bake Shop (Kensington Market)

Whether you're gluten-free or not, you’re sure to love the creations at both the Kensington Market and Junction bakeries alike. They don’t do any custom cakes, but their pre-designed stuff will be more than satisfactory—the Funfetti cake is a winner for sure.


Bloomer's

Bloomer's

This Bloorcourt vegan cafe and bakery offers special orders of unique cakes which are both festive and healthy. Their ‘fancy cakes’ include options like Cookies N’ Cream or the Donut: a spiced vanilla cake with berry or lemon glazing.

DaanGo Cake Lab

Given how photogenic the rest of their treats are, it’s not surprising that this famous Scarborough bakery on Midland Avenue bakes up incredible birthday cakes too. Chef Christopher Siu of Masterchef fame doesn’t disappoint with masterpieces of chiffon and dacquoise.
