    Fantastic Cake!

    Cindy did a fantastic job on our wedding cake! Exactly what we were looking for - we got so many compliments! Her cakes are the perfect level of sweetness! She was super patient dealing with our requests and everything was perfect! I already can't wait to get another for our anniversary!

    Chartier Specialty Sweets's reply:

    Thanks so much Gabrielle! We loved being part of your special day and creating your wedding cake; especially with the adorable puppy on top!

    We look forward to seeing you next year for your anniversary cake ...or perhaps even sooner for other celebration cakes! ☺️

    So Delicious!!

    We went with Chartier Speciality Sweets, because after meeting with Cindy and trying her cake tasting pack, we knew she would make exactly what we wanted for our wedding cake. Due to COVID, we had to change all our original plans, but we still wanted to have a small cake to cut. She was so easy to work with and made such a beautiful and delicious cake for us to cut on our special day. She surprised us with a raspberry champagne and a berry merlot layer and it was so yummy! We can't wait to have her bake our original cake for our big celebration, whenever we are able to have it in the future, and for future events, because I will definitely order from her again! Thank you Cindy!

    Chartier Specialty Sweets's reply:

    Thanks so much Lauren, and I am glad that you and Ryan enjoyed the cake! You both were so great to work with and it was nice to be just a small part of your special day. I look forward to creating your original wedding cake design once all this COVID chaos settles down.

    Tasty, tasty, tasty

    Right from the very beginning Cindy was very easy to work with. She wanted to make sure my order was JUST what I wanted for my wedding.
    The cake/cupcakes were delicious and we planned to keep some for our 1 year anniversary but there was none left by the end of the night!

    Chartier Specialty Sweets's reply:

    Thanks so much Marissa, your cake and cupcakes were fun to create and I loved your topper. I would be happy to recreate a small cake for your first anniversary :)

    Cake/Cupcakes

    Cindy was great to work with and made beautiful cake/cupcakes for our wedding. She made an absolutely delicious tasting cake taking into consideration my husband's various allergies and was very helpful with other requests/questions.

    Natasha, thanks so much! I was happy to be just a small part of your special day - Congrats again to you and Aaron!

    Simplicity at its finest

    My husband and I loved our wedding cake so much. not only was it beautifully made but it was so delicious!

    Our wedding cake was a champagne and raspberry cream cake with a butter cream frosting, such a decedent treat for everyone! Light, fruity and refreshing, It was just perfect for a spring wedding.

    Cindy was so accommodating, she transported part of the cake from Calgary to Victoria and spent the night before working on the finishing touches, she did not disappoint! The detailed work and amount of time she puts in was so personal and meant alot to my husband and I!

    I should also mention ( I was so impressed) that she designed the top tier of the cake to look like the cake of the royal wedding that took place just a week before our wedding. The extra touch just made our day even more special❤️

    For any bride that is looking, I would definitely recommend Chartier Specialty Sweet!

    Adriane,
    I’m so glad you loved the cake and it was interesting trying to figure out how to fly with a wedding cake lol. Congrats again to you & Derek!

    Cute and simple

    We ordered a small simple cutting cake, and that is exactly what we got with a little twist. It was suggested we go with the merlot wine cake and it was a great suggestion. We provided our own cake topper and it looked too cute! Price was also very reasonable and communication was easy.

    Chartier Specialty Sweets's reply:

    Thanks so much Raeleen! I am so glad you enjoyed the Berry Merlot cake and I loved your flower choice for the cake. It was so nice to be able to help you celebrate.

    Congrats again to you and Garett!

    Tastes as amazing as it looks!

    Cindy went above and beyond to create our beautiful elopement cake! Our cake was simply stunning and also tasted fabulous--moist, homemade and not too sweet! During our consultation she took the time to understand our vision and then made it come to life beyond our expectations. She was a dream to work with and very flexible with pick-up. Highly recommend. You will not be disappointed!
    -Monika

    Chartier Specialty Sweets's reply:

    Thanks so much Monika, you and Sam were a lot of fun to work with and it was exciting to see the photos from your mountain elopement which was just beautiful! Congrats to both of you and thanks for letting me be just a small part of your special day!

    Cindy was Amazing!

    Cindy was an absolute pleasure to deal with from the start! We were from out of town and unable to meet with her in person and do a tasting. We had a zoom call with Cindy where she was able to help us decide and figure out a cake design and share flavour ideas with us. We were uncertain on what we wanted to do as far a guest favours and thankfully Chartier Specialty Sweets had a fantastic option with delicious individual packages with a sticker of our initials on 4 mini chocolate chip cookies, they were a big hit with everyone. The cake was absolutely phenomenal!! We decided on chocolate cake with raspberry cream filling, it was the best cake we and our guests had ever had! There were a few pieces left and fights over who got to take it home. Another fantastic offering that Chartier Specialty Sweets had was bridal party lunches, it was something we totally hadn't thought of. We picked up the lunches the morning of and had them with us to eat when we could. The food was all super fresh and delicious. Thanks Cindy for everything! Can't wait to order another cake for our one year anniversary! We highly recommend Cindy at Chartier Specialty Sweets for any special occasion! Ryan & Jen

    Chartier Specialty Sweets's reply:

    Thanks so much and I’m so glad you enjoyed everything!

    Congrats again to both of you and thanks for letting me be just a small part of your special day!

    The best desserts in YYC

    My first impression of Cindy from Chartier Specialty Sweets was excellent. She was kind, punctual and very personable. The desserts she makes are delicious and I haven’t found anything like them anywhere else in YYC.
    She made my wedding desserts which included mini cupcakes (lemon cake with lemon filling and buttercream frosting), French macarons amaretto peach and elderflower and blueberry, mint and maple cinnamon meringues. She delivered them on time and set them up beautifully.
    I have hired Cindy to make all family birthday cakes as well and they have never disappointed. She is understanding and accommodating.
    I would highly recommend Chartier Specialty Sweets!!

    Chartier Specialty Sweets's reply:

    Cassie, thanks so much for your kind words and I am glad your wedding dessert table was a hit. Congrats again to you and Andrew!
