    The Caketress is phenomenal! She was able to create a sketch from scratch based on my feedback while viewing her gallery of previous works. She is very flexible and has a great understanding of what I was looking for even though I was having difficulty trying to describe what I wanted our cake to look like. The final product was absolutely amazing, and was delivered and setup early without any issues. Our wedding was on a statutory holiday in winter (December 26) and she did not turn us away or give us any trouble for the date. She provided the anniversary cake separate from the wedding cake, which I think is wonderful (we will have a "whole" cake instead of a cut of a larger piece.) She makes real red velvet, and it tastes absolutely amazing. We highly recommend The Caketress for her delicious and beautiful cakes. I am excited to finally take out our anniversary cake this winter!

    Lori designed my wedding cake in September of 2014 - it was absolutely gorgeous! I had been told about Lori by my photographer and when my husband and I searched her - we had to have her create our wedding cake! Lori was one of the nicest people that I could have dealt with - she was easily contacted via email and phone. Lori met with us twice - once to go over cake ideas and cake testing, and another time to finalize the cake decoration. Lori is VERY creative and talented - the flowers and detail on our cake were super intricate. The flavours of cake are also amazing - we heard nothing but good comments regarding our cake flavours!

    Lori brought the cake to our location and stayed with it until it was placed and looked perfect. I found her prices to be very reasonable!

    thank you Lori!

    We served the wedding cake as our main dessert. 4 layer oval cake served 170. The presentation of the cake was magnificent; everything we hoped for and more. It was also very delicious. We would happy to recommend this vendor.

    We were extremely happy with the design of the cake, it was beyond delicious and Lori was a great fit for us. She is a very talented "Caketress" who worked with us to make sure her design for us was perfect and she was extremely easy & professional when understanding our price range, travelling to us with the cake and always responding to emails quickly.

    Thanks Lori!

    It was a pleasure wokring with Lori on our wedding cake for our August 6th, 2010 wedding.

    A wedding cake was not something that my husband and I wanted, we had met with many cake decorators and became discouraged with the industry....and then Lori came into our lives! Her cakes stood out as being different, not the same old traditional wedding cake, and not the same old traditional wedding cake flavours!

    Communication was very important to us, as we were planning our wedding in Toronto from afar, and we needed someone who was flexiable with meeting times, as our time in TO was always short, and we needed to be able to communicate over e-mail. Lori had no issue with this, and sent design concepts to us via e-mail.

    Then end result...perfection! We loved out cake. It tasted amazing (Pumpkin spice flavour) and looked fantastic, Lori said it was like a cake decorating vacation! Our cake was anything but ordinary, bright orange and pink and it had tropical flare to fit our "theme"

    It was such a pleasure working with Lori and we have no issue recommending her to our friends and family! :D
