    The perfect wedding cake!

    Sandra is amazing at what she does. The cake she made us was not only beautiful, but so delicious too! She allowed us to have a different flavour for each of the 4 tiers which was so nice since it's impossible to choose just one, all of the different cakes she makes are SO good! She provided a sketch of what the cake was going to look like based off of my original request and when I asked her if we could make a few alterations she was more than accommodating. The final product was everything I've always wanted, she really did make my wedding cake dreams come true!

    Cakes By The Lake's reply:

    I am so happy to hear that your cake was enjoyed! I wish you and your husband many happy years ahead. if you are planning a trip to Niagara for your first anniversary be sure to keep me in mind. Thank you for leaving a beautiful review.

    Beautiful Wedding Cake and Pastries

    We found the owner of Cakes by the Lakes to be very professional and personable. We thoroughly enjoyed the cake tastings. We decided to go with a two-tier cake for our small wedding (50 guests due to covid-19 restrictions). We initially opted for the raspberry for the bottom layer and the chocolate lovers for the top layer, however after the tasting we requested the strawberry cake for the bottom. At the wedding when we cut the cake we got the raspberry bottom. I think she must have forgotten. It was delicious just the same. Aside from this we would recommend Cakes by the Lakes to our family and friends.

    Wow factor cake!

    Sandra was amazing to deal with leading up to our wedding. I ordered from her a surprise grooms cake, which until we cut it, our guests didn't believe was actually cake! The cake delivered in every possible way. The look (sorry, I don't have a pic at this time), the taste, and the price. I will keep this amazing lady in mind the next time I need a spectacular showstopping cake!

    Cakes By The Lake's reply:

    Thank you so much Jenn, it was so much fun to make your husband/avid fisher's largemouth bass cake. I love a challenge! I look forward to baking for your family again.
    Wishing you both years of happiness together!

    Most amazing Cake!

    Sandra is AMAZING!
    To start her pricing is great, her designs are great, and her cakes are DELICIOUS!
    I had sent Sandra a few inspiration pictures and am so happy with how our cake turned out. She really brought our ideas to life.
    I highly recommend Sandra for wedding cakes, birthday cakes, and anything in between. She will take your idea and turn them into a beautiful masterpiece!

    It was an absolute pleasure to bake for your special day.

    Delicious!

    Sandra is amazing and her cakes are too! It was lovely to work with her. We went for a tasting at her house where she had different cupcakes out for us to try and even some to take home to our families! She made us a 2 tiered cake for our wedding and 3 types of cupcakes! (chocolate, vanilla and raspberry!) The guests were raving about how delicious the cupcakes were! Unfortunately the hall did not cut our cake but we shared it the next day with family and froze some for our 1st anniversary. She does an amazing job and is so great to work with! Highly recommend Sandra at Cakes by the Lake!

    Thank you so much Daniella for your kind words. You guys were a pleasure to work with too! I wish you both much happiness on your journey of married life xo
