Highly skilled baker with an eye for design
Shannon was such a pleasure to work with! She listened to what my vision was for my wedding cake and drew up a few different designs on paper so we can see visually what we would be receiving. Once we selected our choice, we were able to sample flavors and payment structure was super easy! Our end result was a beautifully crafted masterpiece that looked even better than anticipated. She is a highly skilled baker and would certainly hire again for any other upcoming cakes!Sent on 14/05/2019

Our Surprise Wedding Cake!
My husband was talking with a colleague, inviting him to our place for his birthday party, who asked him what kind of cake we had at our wedding. My husband told him that we had decided to forgo the cake in lieu of doughnuts. His friend arrived at my husbands party, and as a gift, he brought us the one thing we didnt have at our wedding...a cake!Sent on 16/01/2019
Our topper was an inside joke that we asked be kept private, but I can say that Shannon insisted on seeing my RECENT picture before making it, and I LOVED IT!!! She got my cropped pink hair, and even the look of the dress! I've kept them in the freezer, since. I can't bear the idea of parting with them lol! The top layer was vanilla cake with dulce de leche icing and the bottom tier was red velvet cake with cream cheese icing. They were both mouthwateringly delicious. We gave almost none away. We ate cake until we were sick lol, it was too delicious! The flowers were absolutely exquisite and intricate and beautiful. And although it broke my heart to damage them at all, they were also DELICIOUS!!! This cake was the perfect blend and balance of us, traditional (the cake pictured) but non-traditional (the toppers), and not only was it a work of art, but it tasted amazinggggg. We were so grateful, and it was the best wedding birthday present anyone could ever ask for! Thank you Shannon!!
Shannon Murphy Custom Cakes's reply:Thank you so much! I was so thrilled to provide you with the one thing you were missing on your big day. I look forward to making you any cakes (or doughnuts) that you need in the future. All the best to you and your husband!

Shannon was an excellent vendor to deal with. She was so responsive and we were able to schedule time to meet very quickly. Shannon also researched and purchased a cupcake tower for us to use that matched our decor and needs perfectly. The cake and cupcakes were absolutely delicious and we did not have to worry about a thing! Shannon arrived at our venue the day of our wedding and set everything up on her own, we just showed up and it was all done! I would highly recommend working with Shannon for your wedding cake needs as she is a true professional who delivers on her promises.Sent on 11/11/2019
Shannon Murphy Custom Cakes's reply:Thank you so much Courtney! It was such a pleasure making the cake and cupcakes for you and Cory. I hope to make another cake for you in the future. All the best, Shannon

Owner & Cake Designer
Hi, I'm Shannon! I am the owner and sole cake designer for Shannon Murphy Custom Cakes. My love of cake started after High School when I combined my love of baking with my creative and artistic abilities.
I have worked in bakeries all over Toronto but I wanted to freely exlore my creativity in creating my own custom creations. When I am not designing cakes for clients, I like to fill my spare time by contibuting Youtube videos to the channel "How to Cake it Step by Step".
Last year I entered my first cake competition and took home first place! I look forward to entering many more compeitions World wide in the few years to come.
Aside from my love of cake, I am a huge Harry Potter nerd! Harry Potter cakes are my all time favourite cakes to make because I get to share that passion with my client and create something for them that I know they will love.
