Professional, creative, dependable.

Reached out to vendor to enquire about the possibility of making a custom cake, drum snare base and a stand-up bass on top. Within a couple email exchanges, the vendor sent a sketch, we picked a flavour, the day of the wedding the cake arrived as as agreed upon, on time and absolutely glorious! The vendor worked with our caterer to secure the set-up of the cake and to leave instructions on how to tackle cutting it. We did not have to worry about anything, thank you so much for bringing our vision to life! The cake was stunning and delicious, and the bonus was the vendor's excitement to make the cake!! 🤗
Highly recommended for both quality, price, ease of communication and on point delivery!

Delicious Cake

Gordana was super easy to work with and our cake tasted delicious. It was a bit expensive for how small it was, but I suppose that is to be expected for anything associated with the wedding industry lol. In all, definitely recommend!

Amazing wedding cake and beyond expectations!

Gordana provided such a beautiful wedding cake for us on our special day. After doing a cake tasting at her home along with my mom and sister, we were very impressed with the quality and texture of her cakes. We ordered a tall, single tier, yellow vanilla cake with passion fruit curd and buttercream. She was flexible with the delivery time and worked with us to deliver it to the venue which we really appreciated. Thank you so much for a wonderful wedding cake!

GeM knocked it out of the park!

Gordana at GeM Cakes did our wedding cake and a cupcake tower for our wedding. Everything was delicious. She came and set everything up, which gave us one less thing to worry about.
We did a taste test of different flavours first, and she took care of the rest. She also had gluten free options available. She was easy to contact and helped with any questions we had. We highly recommend giving her a call and arranging a meeting for your big day.

Fresh, delicious, beautiful!

Gordana made the most perfect buttercream cake that looked more beautiful than I imagined. I went with coconut base and passionfruit buttercream, along with dozens of cupcakes with the same flavour. I still don’t know how she created such an intricate and stunning tropical fondant design that went perfectly with my theme. She uses the highest quality natural ingredients, and people could not stop gushing about the flavour. It’s possibly my favourite thing about my wedding. Our top tier was too delicious to last, so we will be going back to her for anniversary cakes in future.

Our cake was very well decorated with excellent detail. The cake was very good to taste except the amount of fondant used was a tad bit too much the outside layer of fondant was 1/4" thick. The sweetness of the amount of fondant took over the flavouring of the cake. Other than that excellent job

Gordana makes the most beautiful cakes. She listens to what you want and works with you to give you the best of the best. She has made a two tier anniversary cake which was a huge hit and the centrepiece of the day. She also made a beautiful beauty salon cake which everybody enjoyed and couldn't get enough of.

I was so impressed with the cake. It made such a statement and I truly believe set the stage for the dinner portion of our wedding. The intricate details amazed the guests; and the cake was equally as delicious as it looked.
