    Wedding Cake for Intimate Ceremony

    We had a wonderful experience working with Yvonne & Robert on our beautiful wedding cake! We were going for a rustic chic vibe and they definitely delivered. We booked pre-pandemic and went for our in person tasting back in winter of 2019. Everything was delicious! I knew from the start we wanted a 3 tier semi-naked cake with fresh florals. They sketched it up for us perfectly post tasting.

    We went from 135 guests set for June 2020 when we booked, down to 10 in May of this year. Yvonne and Robert were extremely accommodating and understanding through it all.

    My husband and I made the decision to keep the 3 tiers (lemon, vanilla raspberry and coconut) as we wanted the full effect in photos and save a bunch for family and friends to enjoy offsite - which they loved! We froze the top tier to enjoy on our one year anniversary.

    Overall, we would highly recommend The Cake Box!! Thank you so much Yvonne, Robert and the team for everything!

    The Cake Box's reply:

    Thank you so much Kiesha! We loved working with you and are happy your wedding cake was enjoyed (except the top tier which is yet to be enjoyed). All the best, Yvonne and Robert

    Delicious Wedding Cake

    The Cake Box was wonderful to work with. They were accommodating of my dairy free restriction, and the cake was beautiful and delicious!

    Perfect Vegan Cake!

    Cake tasting is one of the best parts of wedding planning. Cake box has the most beautiful cakes and were so amazing to making our dream cake come true! They accommodated and made the cake Vegan for myself as i have many allergies, and it was DELICIOUS. They replicated a birch cake for us and put a small design on it like our invites. they were so seamless to work with. the cake was delivered perfectly and the team was so great to work with! thank you Cake Box!!!

    Cakebox Review - June 2 Wedding

    We had 120 cupcakes for our guests and we only had 1 left over - enough said!! Working with Yvonne and her team was easy. When we sat down for our appointment with Cake Box, they were very receptive of our ideas and were able to explain the ins and outs of wedding cakes. We chose to go with a 1 tiered layered cake, 120 cupcakes with 6 different flavours, and a surprise Leafs cake for the groom. We had several compliments on both design and taste of our cupcakes. The Cake Box is well priced for the work they put into their cakes - I would recommend them to everyone! Their chocolate diablo is a must try!!!

    The Cake Box's reply:

    Thank you so much LeighAnn! We loved working with you and are happy to hear the desserts were enjoyed. Congrats!

    Beautiful wedding cake and cupcakes

    Planned my wedding in three weeks and found cake box by referral and they did not disappoint! Went with their specialty cupcakes in four different flavours and all the guests loved them! They also executed my cake design perfectly! Reasonably priced for such great quality!

    Vegan Sailor Moon Wedding Cake

    My husband and I were having a Sailor Moon themed wedding, and we originally were going to have donuts. 3 months before our wedding, the baker had to drop out. We scrambled to find a new option on a very short time frame. We decided to go with the Cake Box as they were available and had great reviews. We told them what we wanted and they hit it out of the park. The cake was the perfect colour of lavender and rose gold, vegan, and the fondant work was amazing! It was everything I wanted. We received so many compliments on our cake.

    Cake was good...

    The Cake Box was highly recommended to us for our wedding cake by other vendors and reviews. We decided to go with a single tier in our wedding colours and cake pops. To be honest, it was the one thing in our wedding that I didn't like. Our wedding was perfect...except for the cake and cake pops. The cake and cake pops themselves were delicious and the guests loved them. But I didn't like the look of it...although we got exactly what was quoted, it just looked a bit "off" (one of our guests thought it was homemade and not professionally done). I also didn't like the card board signs that were provided to name the different flavours of cake pops that we had (I wished I had done them myself). They were hand written with the flavours and the hand writing on the cards was messy in my opinion. Also we had little ribbons tied to each cake pop and they weren't all in the same colour of blue that we requested. Overall, service was good and their cakes are delicious, I just wasn't pleased with the final product especially with the amount of money that was spent on the cake and cake pops. Maybe I was expecting too much, but for my wedding day I expected the best and I didn't get that with this vendor which is truly a shame.

    The Cake Box's reply:

    We are sorry to hear you were not happy with your cake pops. We had created the designs per your request and we thought they had looked great. We are happy to hear you enjoyed the taste.

    Kind regards
