Testimonials

Dear Genevieve.I am writing to you with regards to the wedding cake my wife and I purchased for our wedding on August 29th, 2009. Our experience with you from our initial contact to your sharing of pictures of our cake after the wedding has been nothing short of exceptional. I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your service and professionalism, and to let you know we will refer anyone looking for special occasion cakes to you in the years to come.

As a reminder, our wedding included 175 guests from all over the world. My wife and I were very diligent in the selection of our cake provider, and you exceeded our expectations every step off the way. You were prompt in answering our initial inquiries, flexible with regards to appointment bookings, and very competitive on price given the complexity of our order. The combination of your knowledge, professionalism, and focus on service leave you unmatched in our opinion. Not to mention, the cake was gorgeous and absolutely delicious! Our discerning guests travelled from Denmark, France, Germany, Mexico, and the Netherlands, as well as from all over Canada and the United States. Each of our guests was blown away by our cake, with the number of people attempting to photograph the cake being the only thing that kept our guests from immediately devouring it.

We truly feel that we lucked out by finding someone as talented, professional, and friendly as you to prepare the cake we shared with our friends and family on our special day. We not only look forward to referring our friends to you in the future whenever they are looking for a speciality cake, but also ordering from you again sometime in the future ourselves!

Best regards,

Rajan & Julie


Genevieve,
The baptism cake was absolutely beautiful! When I first saw the cake it literally took my breath away. Along with all my guests, we were in awe at the beauty and detail of the cake. Your ability to bring to life the baptism invitation was amazing. Many photos were taken by the cake. Baby Cristian and his cake were the centre of attention. Even the restaurant owner commented at the beauty of the cake, and he sees a lot of cakes.Not only did you create a feast for the eyes, but for our tummies as well. I had the restaurant serve all my guests a piece each of the almond and chocolate cake. The cakes were absolutely delicious. The raspberry buttercream filing tasted so fresh and the fondant was delectable. Even a day later, the cakes were as delicious as ever. My 5 year old keeps commenting that they are the best cakes he’s ever eaten. He has asked me to order his birthday cake from you. I will gladly oblige him next April.

Thank you for creating such a beautiful and delicious baptismal cake. It made Cristian’s baptism so special and memorable. We will always be grateful.

Best Regards,
Mirella & Bill


Thank you for the cake. Everybody loved it. The cake was excellent.
-Steven


The cake presented for my birthday was a delightful summer basket, adorned with incredibly realistic gum paste peonies and other flowers; the top filled with fresh berries. The craftsmanship was so exquisite, it felt almost criminal to cut into the cake to eat it. But eat it we did and the inside was as wonderful as the outside.
- Stephanie


The cake was fabulous and everyone was beside themselves on how beautiful it was. Thank you soooo much you made a moment for me that was special come alive again……keep me posted for future cakes. Please keep up with the great customer service and maybe I will see you on TLC with your own show as you made this so easy and fun.Thanks,
Natasha


Genevieve,Your cakes were AMAZING! They were not only beautiful but delicious. I have never eaten a better cake I kid you not!!!!!!

Thank-you so much they were divine! Everyone raved.

So could you do Connor’s birthday cake? I know it is a little way away, but I thought I should get a jump-start. His birthday is in January.

I will recommend you to anyone looking for a good cake artist.

Thank you again,
Adele


This was my first time ordering a special cake and Genevieve truly captured what I was looking for, right down to the personal touch of adding the letter “R” to the purse. The next time I need a special cake I know who to call as Genevieve truly has the gift of a fine Artist.
- Rita


I LOVED The cake, if I can call it that. It was more of an edible art masterpiece. It looked so fantastic and spot on to Gizmo in the movies that I didn’t want to cut into it. Everyone wanted pictures of the cake before it was sliced. Most importantly, once we dug in it was delicious and easily one of the best cakes I’ve ever had both in looks and taste. Days later everyone is still talking about it and I find myself still looking at photos. It was definitely the life of the party. Thank you for creating a birthday memory I’ll never forget.
- Andrew


The Easter Cake was one of kind, very creative!It was a perfect way to end our Easter meal!
- Luisa


Genevieves’ cakes are not only wonderful to look at and delicious to eat, but they are definitely one-of-a-kind creations. Recently, for my birthday, a very special cake was made which looked exactly like a basket of apples. In fact, at first glance, I didn’t even realize that it was a cake! The basket was actually a 3 layer apple spice cake. The detailed wood markings on the icing were amazing – right down to the staple marks on the rim of the the basket. On top, a cluster of glistening red candy apples were strategically placed, and the bottom of the basket sat nestled in a patch of green ‘grass’. A true country creation! I was absolutely delighted with my cake but the best part of all was watching the reaction of my family and friends as they came in to see and take pictures of the cake. It got more attention than I did!! Thanks Genevieve for helping to make my 50th birthday party such a memorable one.
- Cathi


Holy awesome cake Batman! One of the best surprises at the party =)
- Karen



We wanted to share some birthday pictures with you and to thank you again for the most amazing, most delicious birthday cake, in the history of the universe.
Until the next birthday, THANK YOU.

Love,
Alex & Tani


Hi Genevieve,

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the lovely bridal shower cake! I loved your design and the cake tasted like heaven. You are a truly talented and needless to say I have already sent a few people your way as the cake was both a success and a show stopper at the bridal shower.

Thanks once again for making sure the cake looked great and tasted great and for meeting my budget.

I will for sure be coming by for more of those lovely cupcakes.

All the best!

Viviana Machado



Helllo Genevieve,

I thought you’d like a photo of the cake on site! It was absolutely gorgeous and equally as important, delicious. My husband, the birthday boy, was in absolute awe and loved it. I have recommended you to several party goers as well!

Thank you again.

Regards,
Rebecca


Dear Genevieve and crew at For the Love of Cake:

Thank you! The poker cake was a huge hit this evening. We let a few people have a peek at the dog cake also which will be served tomorrow night and everyone just loved it too! I’m sure you get this all the time, but no one wanted to cut into the cake as it is such a work of art. However, ultimately it was served and everyone also found it to be very delicious. I can’t say enough about the thoughtful detail you put into your work, from the face cards to the poker chips with the “50″ to the little leash clips on the leashes on the dog cake, your cakes are truly exquisite pieces of art. Thank you again for sharing your artistry and for doing it in such a tight time frame, it really added to everyone’s special memories of the night.

Sincerely,

Leanne


Dear Genevieve,

I just wanted to let you know how beautiful your cake for Jennifer and Andrews wedding was! We were thrilled when we saw it. It was even more lovely than we were expecting.

All the guests thought it was amazing and so very tasty that it was all gone! Most people had more than one helping as all the flavours were so different and so delicious!

The Blue Berry layer with the Newtons Blue Berries was a huge hit, the guest all thought that it was fabulous! I so appreciate all your work and artistic talent and the fact that

you went above and beyond the call of duty arranging for Blue Berry pick up!

Thank you so much for your part in making Jennifer and Andrews wedding so special.

All the Best, Anne Bowden

Hello Genevieve!

This email is looooong overdue! I just wanted to let you know how much I LOVED the cake you made for my 40th Birthday. I was genuinely shocked when I saw it and very touched at the attention to detail that really made the cake very personal. You did such an outstanding job and everyone that saw it was so amazed at you talent. We actually sat looking at every little detail for quite some time before we cut it……which I really didn’t want to do….but we did, and the carrot cake inside was delicious and very moist.

Many, Many Thanks and Appreciation!!

Best,
Colleen



Hi Genevieve,

I just want to thank you for the beauuuuuuuutiful cake you made! It was awesome, we didn’t even want to cut it (don’t worry, we did)!

And the flavors were amazing, all of them. We have a lot left over, so I won’t thank you for all the weight we are going to gain eating it!

Thanks again, Fulisha


Hi Genevieve,

We wanted to thank you for the beautiful Toronto cake you made this past Sunday. It was amazing and exactly what we had envisioned! The guests at the dinner were also amazed, some of them didn’t even think it was cake!

Thank you so much!

Rashmi & Amit


Genevieve:

I just want to sincerely thank you for such an amazing cake. The detail was incredible and the chocolate/ raspberry combo was a hit. Our birthday girl was blown away and it was the conversation piece for the afternoon. Everyone was thrilled!

Thanks kindly for making my mother in law’s day so special. One she won’t soon forget:)

Best wishes for much continued success!

Kristy


Hi Genevieve
I wanted to drop you a note to thank you for the awesome Indiana Jones
Lego cake, it was a big hit, especially with the birthday boy. The look
of awe in his face is something we will never forget!
Leo particularly loved the little Indiana Jones figure..he couldn’t wait
to eat the hat & whip, the rest is being stored in the freezer (his
idea)
and the cupcakes were nothing short of spectacular…we were all
speechless, literally, the room was filled with mmmmm’s and Ohhhhh’s
We will definitely order again!
Thanks Again
Haze & Rich

Hi Genevieve,

I just wanted to thank you for creating a stellar cake for me for my New Year’s Eve/surprise 50th bday party for my fiancé, Mike. Everyone, including myself, was very impressed by your artistry as well as your baking skills! The cake was as delicious as the replication of the watchface was perfect. I passed your name on to several of my friends who’d enquired as to where I’d had the cake made, so I’m sure you’ll be getting many calls from them (and me) in the future.

Best wishes for 2011!!

Sincerely,

Michelle Lydon


Hi Genevieve,

I was a very lucky recipient of an amazing “Carter” Ballon Bleu birthday cake this past New Year’s Eve.

Thank you so much for your hard work – it was a shame to eat such a masterpiece but it got easier with every bite! ;-)

You guys are definitely my destination for Michelle’s cake when it her time to clock over 50 in a couple of years.

Cheers,

Mike


Penguin Cake -
My friends (leader was Steve Newstead) all took me out for my 50th birthday on Saturday, February 12. Somehow, along my journey in life, I have become a collector of anything to do with penguins. And every Christmas, I get more and more from friends and family. I have a curio cabinet full of penguin stuff. So, what a surprise when I saw the cake they had ordered… your two-tiered penguin cake… it was absolutely amazing…. and perfect. Thank you so much for making my day !! Cheers, Jeff


Genevieve,

I would just like to thank you for the motorcycle cake. My husband loved it, he couldn’t get over the detail you put into it, and it was a big hit at the surprise birthday party.

Thanks again,

Gail Baker


Hi Genevieve,
I wanted to thank you for the brilliant cake – it was absolutely beautiful and taste too!
A major hit amongst all the architects!

Cheers,
Joanna.



WOW!!! What a beautiful cake and cupcake tower. I can’t believe the tulips on the top of the cake…AMAZING!!!

Our guests raved about the cupcakes and everything looked absolutely beautiful!!!

You did a fantastic job and we will recommend you to anyone looking for a great bake shop!!

Thanks again!

Ann Maksymetz


Hi Genevieve,

Just wanted to give a big thanks to you and your staff for the
beautiful cake. My mom absolutely loved it and all the guests were
amazed! It was also delicious; not too sweet or heavy and everyone was
happy to take some leftovers home. My mom made sure to preserve the
two rabbits as keepsakes :)

Thanks for all your help planning the cake; it’s been great working with you.

All the best,
Hilary



Hi Genevieve,

Just a quick note to thank you so much for our wedding cake. It was beyond what we could even imagine. It was so beautiful and fun and of course, delicious! Everyone couldn’t stop talking about it and it was such a special addition to our day! You and your team did an outstanding job. We couldn’t have loved it anymore!

Thanks,
Christine



Hi Genevieve, Adam, and For The Love Of Cake team,

Once again your cake made a great hit at my Mother’s 91’st Birthday Tea. None of the ladies had tried or even heard of a ‘Red Velvet Cake’. They were intrigued with the look, the taste, the icing and ‘edible picture’. This ‘new-to-them’ experience sparked much conversation making for a fun and noisy party!

This small event could never undue the brilliance of ‘The Suitcase Cake’ which took centre stage at her 90th.

As mother would say to you: ‘Thanks For The Memories’.

Cheers,
wendy and Lewis



Hi Genevieve,

I just wanted to send you some pictures of the cake. Everyone loved it so much!!! My father can’t stop talking about it.

Thanks again so much,

Alex


Hi Genevieve.

I wanted to thank you SO much for the Angry Birds cake. It was phenomenal! I am floored as to the detail and accuracy of it. People were absolutely amazed. Staff at the restaurant were sneaking into the fridge and snapping pictures of it…people were stopping by and taking pictures…fantastic. And I hear that it tasted amazing, as well, of course!

So thank you, thank you, thank you! You can be assured that I told everyone who asked where it was made. You certainly deserve the praise.

Nicole M


Genevieve!

Just writing to let you know how amazing the cake turned out! It was a huge hit, all the kids (and grown ups!) loved it so much and it went perfectly with our little petting zoo farm theme. I’ve recommended you to everybody and I know I’ll be hiring you again in the future. Thanks so much!

Chellie



Hello For The Love Of Cake Team!

Thank you so very much for rushing and doing this cake for us last week! The band loved it.

Hi Genevieve,

On behalf of Insight Productions and Canada’s Walk of Fame, we want to thank you for your delicious contributions to our show.

The cupcakes were a big hit with our guests and from what we heard got very good reviews.

Raine Maida, Drake, Chantal Kreviazuk, and Stephen Moccio all requested their cupcakes to be boxed up and delivered to their hotel.

In the green room the consensus was that people really enjoyed them and there were none left at the end of the reception.

Howie Mandel even tweeted about the cupcakes and posted a picture of his cupcake tree on his twitter page.

Thank You again for all the lovely cupcakes.

Sincerely,

The Insight and Canada’s Walk of Fame Team!

Wanted to thank you for a wonderful cake. It was awesome! Tasted great and made a big impact (pictures were sent to the President of the company). Unfortunately, the cake looked a little too real. An employee wanting to take a picture with the big bottle grabbed the neck thinking it was real and not a cake. Luckily, we got a few pictures first.

Thanks again.

Fernando



Hello Genevieve,

I just wanted to let you know the cake was a hit…it really looked amazing, the staff loved it and it tasted great.

I’ll be back the next time I need a cake for a “special” occasion.

Thanks again,

Wendy


Hi Genevieve,

I just wanted to let you know how pleased we all were with the cake, (especially my daughter) it looked fabulous and tasted great! You did an outstanding job!

People were actually walking by the cake and asking “where’s the cake?” because it looked so much like real books!

I will definitely order more cakes from you in the future.

Thank you so much for everything!

Take care,
Marianne



Genevieve,

In September your bakery made a bunch of cupcakes for my husband’s surprise birthday party and it was a smashing success. There were 75 cupcakes of all flavours and colours and everyone absolutely enjoyed them to the last crumb. They were not only beautifully presented but absolutely mouth watering and so super moist. From the very first point of contact up until the delivery I received the most professional and kind service, something that can’t be found everywhere. To me, it doesn’t matter how good a product is. If the people at the company are not professional, I’m taking my business elsewhere. Proper customer service to me is extremely important and that’s exactly what I experienced with your company. Each time I called you guys were wonderful and I am very thankful for that.

Thank you so much for everything. There was something at the party for everyone and the next time I need cupcakes…I know exactly where to order them from.

Barb Rebelo


Hi Genevieve:

How are you? Hope you are doing well.

I just wanted to THANK YOU SOOOO VERY MUCH for the “Call of Duty” cake you made for my husband’s and best friend’s birthday party.

The cake looked awesome (people kept commenting on how good it looked) and it was super delicious (but that was not a surprise to me because I know how tasty your cupcakes are).

Thank you agian for making it.

Yours truly,
Margaret Lee


coconut cupcakes –
We were brousing around Liberty Village last Saturday and decided to get some cupcakes to take home. OMG if I had known how freaking delicious the coconut cupcakes were I would have bought a dozen! They are without a doubt the best thing that I have tasted-ever! I have been telling everyone about your store and was so excited to see that there is a location close to me.
p.s. I never bother to send emails unless something is really important to say.
Shelley Leblanc



Hi Genevieve,

Cake has arrived and it looks absolutely fabulous! Great job, I’m sure everyone will be impressed.

Oh…my….gawd!!!! Love the salted caramel against the chocolate, well done, so many rave reviews!

I’ll score some more pics but this is just before it went out. fabulous job. THANK YOU!

Cheers,
Lola

thank you for the beautiful wedding “cake” for Nicole & Mark’s wedding — the cake topper with the 2-tone blue tulips was beautiful and the cupcakes were both pretty and yummy!

The cake I ordered for my daughters shower in the Distillery District was amazing! You did a lovely job! It was a hit! Everyone, from the kitchen too other restaurant customers admired it. I gave your name all around. Thanks again. Jennifer St Jean.



Hi Genevieve,

I wanted to extend many warm thanks for the wonderful cupcakes you did for my wedding. They looked beautiful and were a HUGE hit!! I think the S’mores and Tiramisu went the fastest. I still think about them- they are so delicious and tasty and moist!! Many people took pictures of the cupcake tower that night.

Thank you also for the Bride and Groom cupcakes- they’re just so cute!!

Carolyn Wilkie


Hi Genevieve,

Hope you had a wonderful weekend. I just thought I’d let you know how well received your cupcakes were – everyone was wondering where we had gotten them from, so we’ve sent them your way. They were absolutely delicious!

Thanks again!
Iris


Hi Genevieve,

We have returned from our honeymoon and I just wanted to send a giant thank you for the beautiful cake and cupcakes that you prepared for our wedding! The flowers looked STUNNING and I still can’t believe how you got them to look so realistic. Complete with stamens! Absolutely fabulous artistry. And of course, the gluten free cake tasted delicious and I heard wonderful things about the cupcakes.

Warmest regards,
Jessica


Hi Genevieve,

I wanted to thank you for delicious cupcakes, and lovely presentation!

When I got into the reception room, and saw the tower, I couldn’t wait to delve in and try one of the amazing cupcakes! People raved, and I managed to bring a few home that remained fresh until we left for our honeymoon!

Can’t wait to pop in and try some more flavours.

Thanks,
Samantha



Hi Genevieve and Adam,
Thank you so much for the beautiful work that you did on our Wedding Cupcake Tower! I was so happy with how it turned out, it was one of the things that I was looking forward to seeing most on our wedding day! It really fit in with the fall theme of our wedding.

Thank you again,
Shauna & Jesse Lawrie


Hi Genevieve,

I would like to take a few moments out of your talented time to “THANK YOU” for my son’s first birthday cake….everyone in the party enjoyed the redvelvet cheese cake. Indeed there is nothing left but crums under my carpet now….Really hats of to the cake makers, designers and arrangers….:-)
