    Yummy & Beautiful

    Ali was by far the nicest vendor I dealt with for my wedding. She understands the stress brides go through and is there for support along the way!

    Ali is great to communicate with. I sent her my cake vision and she totally nailed it!

    Thank you so much! Xo

    So GOOD and Affordable

    Honestly, working with Ali was a breeze. She nailed the cake from the inspiration photos. We just sent her the inspo, time and place and she set everything up. I would 100 per cent recommend using her.

    Ali Bakes Cakes's reply:

    Thank you, Elizabeth! The feeling is mutual ~ you were such a pleasure to work with. I absolutely loved the romantic, timeless cake design you chose.
    I wish you both all the best!

    Delicious!

    Ali is awesome! Not only is she very professional and was super accommodating with us having to reschedule multiple times, our cake was beautiful and delicious! Thank you so much!

    Ali Bakes Cakes's reply:

    Hi Jessica! You were such a breeze to 'work' with (it's not really work though, is it)! I was so happy that, given all of the obstacles from Covid, you were both finally able to have the wedding you dreamed of. Thank you so much for taking the time out to write this review. xo

    Delicious Maple Cake

    Ali delivered exactly what we wanted and accommodated our need to change plans based on lockdown related venue changes. The cake was beyond delicious and all of our guests raved about it. Thank you Ali!

    Ali Bakes Cakes's reply:

    Hi Hayley! I am so happy that everyone enjoyed your special wedding cake. I am especially glad it arrived in one piece as I recall Aaron had quite the drive!! Thank you so very much for taking the time to leave a review. It means so much!

    Best Cake I’ve Had Ever!!!

    We are so fortunate to have found Ali! From the moment we connected to talk about flavours and samples, through to the drop off of the cake and then after the event, Ali was in constant communication and made us feel so comfortable and relaxed.

    Not only was she amazing but her cake was delicious!!! So moist and the flavour was top notch.

    We could not have been happier and can’t wait to use Ali again!!!

    Ali Bakes Cakes's reply:

    Thank you so much, Sarah! ❤️ It was an absolute pleasure ‘working’ with you both! Your venue, your dress, everything…..absolutely stunning!!!

    Beautiful Wedding Cake with Great Customer Service

    My new husband and I couldn’t have been happier with our wedding cake from Ali Bakes Cakes. Not only was it beautiful, it tasted delicious too! Ali was very helpful with the tasting and design process, and was able to incorporate my cake flowers and topper with venue delivery. I would definitely recommend this local Niagara small business.

    Ali Bakes Cakes's reply:

    Thank you, Lauren, for such kind words. From the cake design you chose, to your venue, to the beautiful decor you had set up, it all looked like a dream! It was an honour to create this special cake for you both!

    The cake was AMAZING

    I found Ali on Instagram and immediately followed her. I wanted to find a cake person that was local. The treats looked amazing and also tasted amazing as well. She offered cupcake samples and we were sold. Her pricing was very reasonable, communication was great, we had a few changes and she was very open and adaptable to them. Our wedding cake turned out amazing several of our guests asked us where we got our cake from.
    We will definitely use her again!

    Ali Bakes Cakes's reply:

    Thank you for taking the time to leave this review, Betty. It means so much to me! I wish you both a lifetime of laughter and happiness together xo

    Amazing experience!

    Ali was a pleasure to deal with. Incredibly responsive, and able to adjust to our needs. She made the cake choosing process a breeze - and it was delicious!

    Like a breath of fresh air during a busy time!

    This company are all about making you feel calm and relaxed during what can be a very stressful time. Ali was a good listener from the get go, open to hearing what we had already heard about, and gently making suggestions. She is responsive, professional, and most of all, her heart is in it! If you want an easy breezy experience so you can relax and know someone's got this, you can't go wrong with Ali! And can we all say, DELISH!

    A Lovely Cake for an Intimate Wedding

    Working with Ali was as smooth as her buttercream icing!
    The groom and my father are both lactose-intolerant, and I wanted to make sure they could also have cake — without stressing about taking anything beforehand.

    Ali's dairy-free option is a delicious life-saver that became a chocolate top tier, hubby kind of wrestled the plate away from me when we finished our cake cutting ceremony! The bottom tier was a fluffy vanilla, and we had our flowers added as part of the decoration.

    Ali Bakes Cakes makes sure everyone can have their cake and a good time. Thank you for making our day so special!

Owner

I am the owner of Ali Bakes Cakes. I am also a wife and mother of twin boys (well....young men!) who are my taste testers.

I started baking cakes as a hobby a few years ago and as they say, the rest is history. On my wedding day I remember how much I wanted every single guest to enjoy the cake. I bring that memory into every wedding cake order that I have. I understand the importance of creating the cake of your dreams.

I recently renovated a new kitchen soley for Ali Bakes Cakes order and it is health inspected annually.

My favourite part of this process is meeting you!
