Their passion and love for cake design is obvious in the beautiful masterpieces that Nina and David create. Our wedding cake was most certainly a delicious work of art, designed to reflect our own unique personality and wedding experience.

Nina's particular attention to detail and the couple's own European chocolate butter cream captivated our hearts when we first visited Cake Studio.
A visit to the studio is definitely a sweet experience, and we could not help but feel like welcomed friends whenever we met.

Nina and David, thank you for your creativity, love and craftsmanship as well as your words of wisdom and support, as we begin our journey of love together.

It was so great to work with Nina! She saw our vision, helped us get what we wanted with the budget we had, and was so friendly. She suggested cake flavours that we had no idea existed and it was the prettiest and most delicious cake ever.

We were really glad that she went over how to properly pose for cake cutting pictures and the proper way to cut a cake without destroying it. She also took the time to restore my cake topper which was badly damaged after the wedding. I really recommend cake studio to anyone who wants an amazing cake with friendly and stress free service.

My only regret was that I didn't get to eat more of my cake.

"Wow"... is an understatement! Our wedding cake was a dream come true! Not only was the cake delicious, creative, and unique, but Nina had found a way to place the essence of our love within a masterpiece of a cake. She went far beyond just making a cake for us... she also guided us on how to cut the cake, pose for photos while cutting the cake, and cared for us just as if we were her family. Others may make cakes, but Nina puts her positive energy and love in what she does. After you've experienced one of her cakes, you will feel like you've selected the best! Our Arabian Nights themed Wedding was a hit all thanks to Nina's magnificent pillow cake!!!!! If you have a vision for a beautiful cake know this, Nina can make it a reality!

I must say my wedding cake looked absolutely amazing and truly beautiful. A very special “thank you” to Nina Notaro from Cake Studio. Nina is a professional in her line of work and it shows in the pride taken for each and every cake she creates for her clients. Not only can she bake but I also consider her an artist in creating such “real looking” editable sugar paste flowers….WOW!! She created a pink peony for me (as this was my flower in my bouquet). It looked amazingly beautiful. The flavour of each of our cakes were mouth watering.…we had the pink champagne cake with lemon curd butter cream and also the lemon poppy seed with the same lemon curd filling and it was truly delightful. Our wedding guests were still talking about how delicious our cake tasted even weeks after we got married!!
In Nina’s consultation meetings, she is very thorough in explaining how the make is made, the process of putting the cake together, where it’s made and how the cake is cut, etc. etc. and of course, the fun part of talking about how to create your “special wedding cake”. Both Sylwester and I can’t thank Nina enough for our special cake. For brides to be…I would definitely “highly recommend” Nina Notaro – Cake Studio to create that special “one of a kind” wedding cake. She makes you feel so welcome with her friendly smile and kind demeanour.
Kind regards,
Wendy & Sylwester

My husband and I would and will highly recomment Cake Studio to anyone in Winnipeg looking for not only a fabulous and unique cake, but also for great service!!!

When I began looking for a wedding cake, my mom suggested Cake Studio based on an article she read. We made an initial appointment to meet and were instantly charmed when we met Nina in person and knew she was the one to create the cake for my specail day!

Nina was absolutely wonderful to work with!!! She made my mother and I feel so welcome everytime we visited to discuss plans for the cake, and was very detail oriented! Our cake was not ony beautiful and delicious, Nina made sure to add special touches that made it exceptional! My husband (who isn't really a fan of dessert) was very pleased with the special peanutbutter golf balls added to the cake just for him!

I will definitely be calling Cake Studio again for my next event!!

We met with other bakers prior to hearing about cake studio. Most of which didn’t live up to our expectations. For anybody out there who is planning a wedding I’m certain that you have a vision in your head as to what exactly you want for your wedding day. The hard part is finding the right people who can put it all together for you. We can honestly say that Nina was a breath of fresh air when it came to the wedding cake. She took the time to sit down and get to know our personalities before even talking about the cake we wanted. She was very receptive to our ideas and you can tell that she loves what she does and settles for nothing less than perfection and will not quite until her clients are happy.
Our cake was beyond good and looked absolutely amazing to the point that most people had a hard time believing that it was real until we cut it later in the evening.
We were 100% satisfied with our experience at Cake Studio.
Thanks Nina

What can you do to make planning a wedding easy and painless? For one thing, call Nina from Cake Studio! Her 'Artistic Cupcakes' were truly one of a kind and left out guests talking. With her gift of creativity and attention to details, she designed our cupcakes with us in mind. She had topped each chocolate velvet cake with various edible frames showcasing a character sketch of Mathew and I that we had used in our invitation....brilliant and so fitting for the Art Gallery. Not to mention, the overall presentation was truly an eye candy and worthy of the spot light!

With her expertise in combining mouth watering flavours and her artistic flare, we did not hesitate in fully trusting Nina every step of the way! Thank you Nina and David (Nina’s husband whose also a realtor from Century)!

Nina is amazing! Our wedding reception would not have been the same without our beautiful snowman wedding cake. When I met Nina I was not sure what I wanted. I was not big into the wedding cake idea but after being convinced I said I wanted it to be unique and something fresh and new. My fiancé and I had a winter theme and wanted snow flakes and snowmen to fill the room. WOW! Nina delivered one of the coolest cakes I have ever seen. No one believed me when I told them it was a cake. it not only looked amazing, it tasted great! Nina treated us like personal friends rather then another customer. Her suggestions along the way helped complete a wonderful winter wedding. This woman is truly amazing and I hope to work along side her again.

Thank you Nina! You will be apart of our Wedding Day memories forever.

We were introduced to Nina through a family member who was familiar with her work, and it's a good thing we were. We met with five different bakers including Nina, all from prominent local bakeries.

Our initial meeting with Nina was by far the longest and most comfortable. We spent about an hour getting to know one another, chit-chatting about the wedding, and discussing our likes and dislikes with regards to the cake. What Nina seems to excel at, as far as designing the look of the cake goes, is in keeping your cake "on theme" and also in getting as much detail out of the client as possible. At our meeting we had only a vague idea of what we wanted, but by the time we left, we could picture every ornate detail of the cake. If you've never considered the cake details - round or square, shimmery or matte, quilted or textured etc. - Nina can show you every option and help you navigate the entire process. Whether you're a detail minded person or not, it's a simple and painless process to develop your own custom cake. If you simply don't know, Nina also is great at making suggestions; for example, copying textures from your dress or linens to mirror in the cake for a great continuity of style.

After our initial meeting, which was one of the first items we planned, it was several months before we met with Nina again to discuss flavours. Here again we were pleasantly surprised. Other bakeries we had met with were able to offer us selections off a list. Choose cake flavour from column A, filling from column B, and you're done. Not so with Nina; here, the sky is the limit. Nina offered us "fall" flavours for our fall wedding and they were all delicious sounding. If you want a unique flavour, she can do it. You can customize every element; cake flavours, frostings, fillings, etc. There is no list - if you have a desire it's possible, and if you simply don't know, she can give you 1000 tips or suggestions. Nina offered us cake flavours that we didn't know were possible, but sounded delicous.

Lastly, the execution was flawless. We chose to serve our cake as the dessert at our wedding rather than have a distinct dessert course at dinner. Therefore we chose broadly appealing cake flavours: vanilla cake, moistened with a hint of amaretto flavouring, with chocolate ganache and traditional pastry cream, and an exterior layer of marzipan for texture and to keep it moist. Despite the "plain" sounding choices we made for flavour, the cake was the best that I (and most of the guests) had ever tasted. The cake itself was five tiers, each tier unique and distinct from the others (our request). One of the tiers borrowed patterns from the wedding dress, and one was a beautiful monogram our our initials. The cake topper was made of around 150 hand-made and hand-painted candy flowers to match our table settings.

Nina even worked with our venue on our behalf to ensure that the cake was served as a proper dessert. She made an additional 150 candy flowers and a vanilla sauce to serve with and garnish the cake for a properly formal service, to match the very formal venue and dinner we had selected.

If you want a truly custom wedding cake rather than choosing items from a pre-determined list; if you want a cake maker who can offer unique and delicious flavours rather than just the traditional fare; if you want a cake maker who will make you a talked-about centrepiece, rather than just a sugary tower, then we can highly suggest meeting Nina at Cake Studio. Her creation was one of the much talked about pieces at our reception both before cutting it (it looked stunning) and after (tasted great!).

Thanks Nina! M&J Z.

If you've never considered the cake details - round or square, shimmery or matte, quilted or textured etc. - Nina can show you every option and help you navigate the entire process. Whether you're a detail minded person or not, it's a simple and painless process to develop your own custom cake. If you simply don't know, Nina also is great at making suggestions; for example, copying textures from your dress or linens to mirror in the cake for a great continuity of style.

After our initial meeting, which was one of the first items we planned, it was several months before we met with Nina again to discuss flavours. Here again we were pleasantly surprised. Other bakeries we had met with were able to offer us selections off a list. Choose cake flavour from column A, filling from column B, and you're done. Not so with Nina; here, the sky is the limit. Nina offered us "fall" flavours for our fall wedding and they were all delicious sounding. If you want a unique flavour, she can do it. You can customize every element; cake flavours, frostings, fillings, etc. There is no list - if you have a desire it's possible, and if you simply don't know, she can give you 1000 tips or suggestions. Nina offered us cake flavours that we didn't know were possible, but sounded delicous.

Lastly, the execution was flawless. We chose to serve our cake as the dessert at our wedding rather than have a distinct dessert course at dinner. Therefore we chose broadly appealing cake flavours: vanilla cake, moistened with a hint of amaretto flavouring, with chocolate ganache and traditional pastry cream, and an exterior layer of marzipan for texture and to keep it moist. Despite the "plain" sounding choices we made for flavour, the cake was the best that I (and most of the guests) had ever tasted. The cake itself was five tiers, each tier unique and distinct from the others (our request). One of the tiers borrowed patterns from the wedding dress, and one was a beautiful monogram our our initials. The cake topper was made of around 150 hand-made and hand-painted candy flowers to match our table settings.

Nina even worked with our venue on our behalf to ensure that the cake was served as a proper dessert. She made an additional 150 candy flowers and a vanilla sauce to serve with and garnish the cake for a properly formal service, to match the very formal venue and dinner we had selected.

If you want a truly custom wedding cake rather than choosing items from a pre-determined list; if you want a cake maker who can offer unique and delicious flavours rather than just the traditional fare; if you want a cake maker who will make you a talked-about centrepiece, rather than just a sugary tower, then we can highly suggest meeting Nina at Cake Studio. Her creation was one of the much talked about pieces at our reception both before cutting it (it looked stunning) and after (tasted great!).

Thanks Nina! M&J Z. Read less

Nina did an AMAZING job on my wedding cake! She helped me figure out what I really wanted & drew it out for me. The fondant flowers looked even better in person on the cake itself! Unfortunately my husband & I only got the chance to taste the little part we pushed into each others faces, since we left right after for pictures & when we came back it slipped our minds completely! We are looking forward to our one-year anniversary to try it :) But the part we did taste was really really yummy! Nina was great in responding to all my emails and the almost dozen pictures I sent her (I would like this part of that cake, and this part of that one, etc, lol) to figure out my wedding cake. Awesome customer service, and the cake is even famous because it was on the promotion video for the Grand Wedding Show in Winnipeg 2010! I was recommended by a friend of a friend, and so glad I worked with Nina! :)

I had looked at a few different people to make my wedding cake, when I found Nina at Cake Studio. The moment I spoke to her on the phone I knew she would be the one to make my cake. She had great ideas and really worked with my husband and I. I have never met anyone that was so creative and had her talent with working with sugar. We loved her and her work. Our cake looked amazing and tasted soooo good! I would use her again, and again.....even for everyday cakes!

When my husband and I started planning our wedding, we realized that above all, we wanted our special day to be fun. My husband has quite the sweet-tooth, so his only requirement was that it was “the world’s best chocolate cake”. I have to admit that I’m not particularly a fan of chocolate, but the smell of our cupcakes was so amazingly mouthwatering, we could smell them from the head table! Our guests were beyond impressed, and everyone spent a great deal of time showing off their uniquely detailed lures (the cupcakes were eaten in record time!) Over the Christmas holidays, our families were still excitingly talking about the fabulous cupcake lures! Thank you Nina, we couldn’t have imagined a more perfect fit for our special day.

Nina takes great pride in her work and pays special attention to detail.

My husband and I planned an inter-cultural wedding and wanted both the French and East Indian cultures represented in many aspects of our wedding including the cake. We eventually came up with the idea of a 'Croquembuche'. This traditional french dessert is apparently very labour intensive and we had a very hard time finding a bakery that was willing to make a very large version and to do it at a reasonable price. When my mom suggested Nina all the 'Croquembuche' issues fell away. Nina was able to create exactly what we envisioned and it was so easy to work with her. She took all our suggestions and made them even better.
To incorporate the East Indian culture into the cake experience, my husband used a traditional Sikh sword to chop off the top of the cake in front of all the guests. The experience was quite spectacular and something that our guests had never seen before. Nina made the whole experience not only possible, but simple and fun. I would recommend Nina to anyone, especially if they have a challenging idea. She is willing to take on a challenge and make it and easy process for you. Thanks Nina, you did a GREAT job.
