You're planning your wedding (or tasked with helping), and all of the sudden you need to become an expert event planner - and fast. We've got you. Here's the most commonly asked questions when it comes to wedding cakes and dessert.
We offer everything from a mini four inch cake to a 4-tier cake. Our 4-tier cakes consist of cake diameters four, six, eight and ten inches. Cake sizes can be arranged in a variety of 2-tier and 3-tier cakes.
We do not offer an option for fake tier and slab cakes. All cakes are round, stacked cakes.
We offer a wide range of both classic and premium cake flavours and fillings. You can find a full flavour list here.
We exclusively use Swiss Merginue Buttercream for all of our cakes. This is a lighter and less sweet alternative to standard powdered sugar buttercream. It is made with a combination of meringue, butter and sugar. We do not offer fondant cakes.
Yes, we offer a number of vegan and gluten-free options which are labeled on our flavour list. However, we are a small bakery and cannot guarantee that desserts are completely allergen-free. Please inform your guests of trace allergens.
Our cupcakes use the same recipe as our cakes so they are the perfect way to sample our cake flavours. Our Wedding Tasting Box contains six cupcakes in three flavours of your choice. We do not offer an in-store tasting consultation. All Wedding Tasting Boxes are packaged to enjoy at home, followed by a call or email to further discuss wedding details.
Ampersand Bakehouse is located at 1808 Danforth Avenue, Toronto. In the heart of Danforth East, we are snuggled right between Coxwell Avenue and Woodbine Avenue.
This is a tricky question to answer. Some weekends get booked out months in advance and on other occasions I have the availability to accommodate last minute orders with a weeks’ notice. I would suggest to order as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
We have partnered with BLSH to provide delivery within the Greater Toronto Area. They specialize in serving artisan bakeries and are the only ones we trust to handle our desserts. Once your wedding quote has been approved, we connect them with your venue coordinator or wedding planner to ensure a smooth delivery.
We do not provide event setup. Wedding cakes and desserts will be fully assembled and boxed up for delivery or pickup. Once the dessert arrives at the venue, it simply needs to be removed from its packaging.
