At The Cake Engineer we LOVE all celebrations and treat them as if they were our own. From 1st birthdays to 50th Wedding anniversaries, we have cake ideas and options for every occasion. We love all of our clients and are truly excited to be able to add something special to each of your life’s celebrations. We truly care as much about the taste as we do about how the cake looks, so you know that you are making the right choice when you put your trust in us to engineer your perfect celebration cake. 

Steps Involved in Ordering a Celebration Cake


  • Step 1:Initial discussion will involve pricing and availability of The Cake Engineer for your special date. If we are available, and the pricing suits your needs then we move forward in the process.
  • Step 2: Mary Faustino will discuss design options with you. If an in person meeting suits your occasion best then this will be scheduled. Depending on the celebration and what is being requested this can also be handled over the phone or email. Feel free to send photos or anything you have seen that may contribute to your vision of your cake. If you have no idea, that’s ok too…we will create something from scratch based on our conversations. Either way, Mary will create a design for you based on all of the above.
  • Step 3: Once the design is finalized, a deposit is required to confirm your date. The deposit depends on the price of your order.

Celebration Cake Pricing

Base price for special occasion cakes is $4.75 a serving. Each tier of cake will have a minimum of 3 layers of cake with 2 layers of filling and each tier stands at least 4 inches in height. That includes standard decorations, which include either buttercream or fondant and things like polka dots, bows, ribbons, etc. If you have a more detailed design in mind that includes things like true to life sugar flowers, 3D molding, intricate piping, etc. the base price will change. This is based on the amount of time it takes and materials required above and beyond the standard cake.

Celebration Cupcake Pricing

Standard cupcakes are $2.75 each or $28.00 a dozen. Minimum order is 1 dozen. Depending on the orders already on the go for that date, there may be a restriction of one flavour per dozen but that can be discussed at time of ordering.
Custom topped cupcakes are priced based on complexity of design.  75


 At The Cake Engineer we make our cakes and fillings from scratch, the way our grandmothers used to do it. One thing that sets us apart in our area is that we use real buttercream, which does NOT contain icing sugar. It is very silky and smooth and does not have that “hurt your teeth” level of sweetness. It’s our secret weapon and its one of the many qualities that keep our customers coming back time and time again.

Cupcake and Cake Flavours:

Vanilla, Moist Chocolate, Red Velvet, Banana, Lemon, Carrot.  We can do any of these flavours in Gluten free as well and also accept other food sensitivity requests.  Custom flavour requests are also welcome.

Buttercream Flavours:

Vanilla, Chocolate, Tart Lemon, Strawberry, Raspberry. Custom flavour requests are also welcome.  All fruit buttercreams are made with real fruit puree so they taste like the fruit, we do NOT use artificial flavourings.   

Other Toppings/Fillings:

Chocolate Ganache (for dark chocolate lovers), Cream Cheese Frosting, Fresh Fruit.  Custom flavour requests are also welcome.
