The Sugar House
GTA Brides – PAY ATTENTION!! Sure, this place is a little outside of Toronto but you won’t find a better deal!!!! I found The Sugar House from scouring the internet and had one of my bridesmaids do my cake tasting since I live in Los Angeles.
Lesley (the owner) was SUPER easy to work with – she scanned pictures of cakes she had done and not posted on her website and sent them to me to choose my cake online. The first time I had the cake was at my wedding – and it was delicious (it was marble)! It was super moist and I wish I had been able to eat more of it. I’m not a fan of tiered cakes and wanted mini cakes so the guests could just come and take a cake. The problem: mini cakes in Toronto range from $8-$12, which I could not afford. At the sugar house they were $4 each and were PERFECT! They are about the size of cupcakes and were mini versions of the cake my husband and I cut. I paid less than half of what I would have paid from a place in Toronto, had great quality, no stress, and NONE of my guests knew the difference.
People thought I paid a fortune for those little suckers – that will be our secret, right brides? Lesley was great over the phone and to email with – this was one of the easiest wedding vendors I worked with and I can see her mini cakes being 1) SUPER popular and 2) rising in price; so book your wedding with her now! OH, and with all the last minute rush of wedding prep, I forgot to pay the final balance, she was super nice when I called her, wasn’t rude AT ALL, even though she had the right to be.
The cons: Her store doesn’t give her work credit. My bridesmaid sent me pics of the store and the mini cakes she had on display, they looked old and sad. I do have pictures of the mini cakes and they were perfect, so don’t be dismayed by the storefront, it’s really great quality at a really good price.
The Cake that we got was OMG wonderful, We have a 3 tier 2 was cake 1 styrofoam. My cake layer was lemon with a double whipped icing, I would eat that again and again! My husband had a marble cake with a chocolate ganache which he thought was wonderful. Affordable and the cake was beautiful.
Leslie from the sugar house was amazing. Our cake was exactly what we wanted, everyone complemented the cupcakes, and I didn't have a thing to worry about. When I arrived at the reception it was all set up on the table etc. Price was VERY reasonable, and the service was amazing.
The Sugar House overall is a good vendor to deal with. The pricing is very affordable and they are quite accommodating to your wishes. I feel that when my fiance and I met with them for our initial consultation, we were left to our own direction a bit too much and would have appreciated more input and suggestion. Overall the cupcakes were very nice and it was a good experience...
