Frequently Asked Questions - Cake

What is the best way to order a cake (wedding cakes excluded)?
The best way is always by phone. If you prefer, you can send an email ( with the following information:  pictures, general ideas, # of servings required, date of event, and/or anything that you know you want included. For urgent and same day requests, please call and/or follow-up with a phone call at 613-384-5100.

How far should I book in advance?
We encourage you to call as far in advance as possible to ensure availability for your event. During popular weekends we often reach maximum order capacity, book early to avoid disappointment. To ensure our high level of quality, we limit the number of cakes we can make for any given week and apologize if we are not available.  

How are your Custom cakes priced?
Custom designed special occasion cakes start at $75 for single tiered cakes and $100 for multi-tiered and carved cakes. Price will be dependent on the complexity of the design and number of servings required.
