Choosing your wedding cake should be one of the highlights of your wedding! The symbol of a wedding cake goes back for centuries and the cutting of the cake is traditionally the first task performed by the newly married couple. Vineyard Sweets will help you make it a memorable focal point of your special occasion. Whether it's a cake in the traditional style with fresh flowers, a special topper or something less traditional in vibrant colours and/or designs to match your décor, we specialize in custom designing the perfect cake for you. Only the finest and freshest of ingredients are used including locally produced fruits for many of our tasty fillings.
We have been producing wedding cakes in the heart of wine country in beautiful Niagara-on-the-Lake for more than 10 years. Cakes, designer cupcakes and designer cookies are also available for other special occasions including wedding showers, baby showers, corporate functions, anniversaries, etc.
Although our unique artistry makes for a memorable feast for the eyes, we also believe that a cake should taste every bit as good as it looks!
Consultations & tastings are available by appointment only.
