At cake-ology we make cakes, all kinds of cakes! We also make cupcakes, cakettes and all kinds of other nibbly goodies. If you can’t find the information you are looking for below, please don’t hesitate to contact us at 612-9866 and we can help guide you to finding or creating something delicious.
We can do all kinds of cakes. Simple cakes, fun cakes, cakes that look like dogs, wedding cakes, and everything in between. All of our cakes are custom, which means we don’t have any in the shop to pick up on a whim, they all need to be ordered ahead of time. We usually book about 2-3 weeks ahead, but please call to see if we can squeeze you in.
Each cake is made up of two layers of cake with butter cream icing (layered in between and then crumb coated). We finish our cakes off with fondant icing, and as they are our specialty, we don’t charge any extra for using that kind of icing. Fondant is a type of icing used to finish off cakes (there is still butter cream inside the cakes) and it is similar in taste and texture to marsh mellows. There is gelatine in it, so veggies and vegans, be warned! Fondant is smooth and produces a clean perfect finish, and we can also use it to model little figurines and to make flowers with. We can do purely butter cream cakes as well, but not of characters or small detailed designs. Instead, we love doing repeating swirls, stripes and patterns, luscious swoops of yummy soft icing. Please check out the gallery for examples of those.
When it comes to the design and the decoration, we have tried to simplify it as best we could. Cakes that are finished in butter cream stay at the below listed prices, fondant cakes start at those prices and final cost depends on the design. Additional charges come into play when you add 3D characters, a lot of handmade sugar flowers or any elaborate detailing. We can do sculpted cakes as well, things such as dogs, sports jersey’s, fire trucks, buildings, and cars. These are custom priced, but generally are a minimum of $50.
Since we are small with a limited number of hands and hours in the day, it’s best to book your cake as soon as you know the date. We can take a limited number of cakes each weekend and book at least one week in advance in the slow season, up to 2 weeks in our busy seasons. You don’t need all the details set in stone, but give us a call and we can get an order started for you and set aside your time and date. Because of weddings, we book about 4-6 weeks ahead in the summer months.

While we try our best to avoid cross contamination, our bakery does have nuts (peanuts, cashews, pecans, walnuts) and we do use flour. We can provide treats and cakes without specific ingredients (such as eggs and milk) but we do not guarantee that the products will be 100% free. We offer gluten free baking as well and we use a rice flour substitute, again with the airborne nature of flour, we cannot guarantee 100% free.
Cakettes are our little creation from all this cake we have at the shop! They are cake, mixed with butter cream and then dipped in chocolate. These are done and set in a mini cupcake liner. We can also do them on sticks, and these we refer to as cake pops. They are finished in white or milk chocolate and can be decorated in a couple different ways. We can use colored chocolate to drizzle over top, or top with sprinkles or sanding sugar.
Cakettes we always have available at the shop and are available for purchase, $1.50 each, $15/dzn. Cake pops are done by special order only and are $1.75 each. Cake pops are available in chocolate cake and vanilla cake and we can wrap them up for you; perfect for gift giving. Cakette flavours are chocolate, vanilla, red velvet, raspberry, chai spice, chocolate peanut butter, chocolate mint, coconut, mocha, and lemon.
Our cupcakes are a perfect addition to your party, to give away as gifts or just as a treat for yourself. We carry a variety of cupcakes daily at the shop, they are $2.50 each, $14 for a half dozen or $28 for a full dozen. The variety changes from day to day and we also feature seasonal specials. Cupcakes are also available to order and customize, and they are available in all of our cake flavours. We also can make things to put on top of cupcakes, they are $0.50 each, and include characters, symbols, numbers and flowers, and are made out of (edible) gum paste and fondant.
Sweets & Treats!
In the shop we carry a variety of other treats, notably imperial cookies, lemon slice (gluten free), caramel pecan bars (gluten free). Imperial cookies are sugar cookies, sandwiched with jam (strawberry, raspberry and Saskatoon) and topped with a royal icing. Our lemon slice and caramel pecan bars are made with rice flour, making them gluten free. We do a variety of other squares as well, including brownies, date slice, granola bars, and others that we find delicious.
