Best Wedding Cakes in Halifax

May 25, 2020

Did somebody say cake?

Cake is pretty much my favorite thing ever. It’s one of the reasons why I like being a wedding photographer, haha… I get to eat cake every weekend! 🙂 Here are our favorite and most fantastical wedding cake, cupcake, and dessert bakers in Nova Scotia:

1. Cake Babes

Located in Dartmouth, Cake Babes does some pretty sensational cakes. Amy can pretty much custom-make anything your heart desires, with no skimping on quality. Her cakes are very beautiful, and so delicious. Whether you want something more traditional, or something creative and off-the-wall, it’s worth every penny. From cookies and cake-pops to tiered style!

2. Layers

This beautiful shop is located in downtown Halifax, and every time I walk by it I just want to buy more cupcakes. And trust me, I get to eat my fair share as a wedding photographer! These cakes are elegant, stylish, and make a beautiful centrepiece for your reception. And they are super yum, I just wanna eat them like pac-man. If this is your wedding cake place of choice, you will not be disappointed!

3. Gateaux Rose

I love these cakes. Crystal runs an amazing one-lady cake bakery. She creates stunning rustic florals, and even adorable kitty cakes! She also offers beautiful flavour combinations, that go hand in hand with her lovely decorating. Vanilla grapefruit with almond? Pistachio and white chocolate? RASPBERRY AND EARL GREY?! Get in my belly!

4. Skye’s The Limit Custom Cakes

Okay. So. This place legit has ice-cream flavours as cakes and it makes me so happy. Neopolitan, banana split, peanut butter cup, you name it! MOONMIST! And all the cakes are fully customizable, so you can get creative or have these awesome flavours traditional and tiered style. They also do dessert tables, and have gluten free and dairy free options. I wish I could eat their cakes all the time!

5. Two Birds Sweets and Treats

These wonderfully creative humans are located in Wolfville and make the MOST amazing carrot cake I have everrrrr had. And I don’t say that lightly. Annnnd they don’t just do cake! They have a delicious selection of goodies for treat tables. My mouth kind of waters just thinking about them. Not to mention everything is freshly baked, combining a lovely mixture of pretty but homemade/down-to-earth bakery vibe. You don’t need to go incredibly fancy for taste explosions people. If I would eat this stuff until I couldn’t possibly shove anything more into my round and bouncy belly. 🙂

And to happily end things off, here are two people very serious about cake eating.

…PS. one of them is me.
