    Best gluten free/vegan cake ever!

    I live out of province so all of my communications with Tanya were via email. She was incredibly responsive and I cannot believe she created such a beautiful cake based on my various sample photos and descriptions. I contacted 20 bakeries trying to find someone who was available and could make me a gluten free and vegan layer to accomodate my dietary restrictions. Le Gateau was one of three people that could accommodate but by far had the most variety for me to choose from. Tanya was so great at making adjustments and changes as our wedding changed due to COVID, and the end result was amazing. It is by far the best gluten free/vegan cake I have ever had. Thank you so much! I highly recommend Le Gateau bakery!

    Tanya was wonderful to work with from the first email I sent to the last! Their prices were very reasonable! I emailed with her since I was from out of town and she was always very prompt to return my emails. I discussed with her my theme and colors and what I had envisioned and she was so great at giving suggestions and when she drew up a sketch of my cake I was in shock on how amazing it looked it was exactly what I imagined but better! The day of she delivered it and it looked so beautiful. We added fresh cut flowers and everyone loved it. It tasted even better than it looked, the flavour was so good and fresh strawberries inside. The fondant was actually one of the best I've tasted and I heard that a lot from my guests as well!

    I will be ordering more

    Setting up a meeting with Tanya was perfect. We were able to meet her after work hours as I am not able to take time off work just to go cake tasting. We brought the reasonably sized samples home and our tasting fee was used towards our order. I picked a 4 tier cake and was allowed to pick 4 flavours. My favourite is the vanilla and strawberry which I used for my bridal shower cupcakes - I will be ordering more in the future as i love this flavour. It was amazing that she was also willing to help me reduce costs and gave me advice to achieve the wedding cake look I wanted without splurging ridiculously. She let me provide my own flowers and explained thoroughly how to prep them in time for her to decorate the cake on the spot at the venue. Tanya was responsive as much as she can be as during this time she also became a new mother. Thank you for a great experience and congratulations.

    The cake turned out better than we ever could have imagined! Tanya's design was perfect and the cake tasted delicious! Our other wedding vendors told us that they had never seen such a beautiful cake before! Tanya was great to work with and very accommodating considering we were coming from out of the country. We couldn't be happier with how it turned out!

    Most Beautiful Cake We've Ever Seen

    We got married on March 10, 2018 and our guests are still commenting on how beautiful our cake was. Tanya is amazingly talented. The tasting we had at Le Gateau Bake Shop is one of the high lights of our wedding planning experience. We chose her Lemon Berry cake and her Chocolate Caramel Pecan cake. Our cake was 3 tier, and finished in white fondant with gold fondant pearls, and a gorgeous sugar flower cascade. When it came time for the cake cutting, I almost didn't want to cut into it - it was that beautiful.

    Tanya produces amazing cakes, and her personality is wonderful. Her prices are also very reasonable. She is friendly, flexible, and oh so creative. We will definitely be back. We are so happy we managed to freeze the top tier for our one year anniversary.

    Le Gateau did our wedding cake for us - coconut with coconut custard - and it was the most delicious cake I've ever tasted in my life. I'm drooling just writing this review. I received so many compliments from our guests on the cake. Tanya was a pleasure to deal with throughout the planning process - she was very responsive and flexible in giving us what we wanted. I would highly recommend Le Gateau to any bride looking for a high quality cake and will definitely consider them for non-wedding cakes in the future.

    Le Gateau Bake Shop's reply:

    Thank you Susan! It was such a pleasure to work with you and be a part of your wedding day.

    Tanya made my unique cake idea come to life. She listens well and has great visioning. I was thrilled on our wedding day. She is easy to work with and the set up was flawless. Everyone raved about the taste of the cake. I ordered much bigger than I needed to achieve the look I wanted and barely had any left. Highly recommend!

    I had a very pleasant experience working with Tanya. She was prompt with her responses, professional and was very reliable. When we arrived for our tasting, Tanya had the table all set with the samples ready and everything was nicely presented. We were very impressed. The cakes and cupcakes were tasty and there were a lot of different variety of favours to choose from. On the wedding day, she arrived on time to set up as expected and everything looked great. I would definitely recommend Tanya moving forward for any bride looking for a reliable baker with delicious cakes. Her macaroons are also amazing.

    Tanya was great to work with, we brought her a picture of the cake we wanted and she did an excellent job recreating it. We chose the chocolate caramel pecan which was delicious and she did a great job delivering and setting up the cake at our venue. Would highly recommend Tanya, she makes beautiful cakes and is very friendly, professional and passionate about her job.
