Ottawa's best kept secret
I'm going to have to spill the beans. I have a cake guy. And he makes the most amazing cakes, ever. I found out about him through my friend Marcie, who told me one day when I was planning my wedding that this awesome guy makes cakes from his house and her sister had an awesome and (key point here) YUMMY wedding cake. I went to see Denis, the cake guy, at his house, and showed him the 4-tiered wedding cake we wanted. Circular, with a bow on the top, cascading down. With our monogram on the third tier. We were about to pay 900 dollars for the exact same cake from the cake store on Preston Street - thankfully, we met Denis at the right time! He made us the exact same cake, even bigger - it fed 400 people - for 300 dollars. O.M.G! It was also the best tasting cake ever!
He also made my bridal shower cake, a 2-tiered Tiffany blue box cake with the white bow and everything. I will have to post pictures of these cakes soon. My shower cake was the prettiest cake ever! I mean, how can you go wrong with a Tiffany blue box cake!? Again, the price was amazing.
He has also done all my friend's wedding and shower cakes, and he did my son's baptism cake and birthday cake (see picture above), and he also does all my birthday cakes. He's just super amazing. He works out of his house. He has 2 stoves. He also has a full-time job, and I don't know how he finds time to do it all! He's now going to make my hubby's birthday cake and I have no idea what it's going to look like, but I'll find out on Saturday night. All I told him was: "Denis, my hubby likes Eric Cartman and Darth Vadar." Anyway... if you need a cake let me know and I'll give you his contact information. There... now you know Ottawa's best kept secret, too!
