Why aren't you answering the phones as much? 

With a 1/3 the staff at the moment, we don't have as many people in the bakery. And all staff is practicing safe distancing, meaning there are barely any overlaps. We do apologize for not being to answer as frequently but please don't hesitate to leave a voice message and it will be returned as soon as possible Thurs-Sat during our pick up hours..

What about emails? 

Same as above, we do apologize if it is taking a little longer to get back to you. We no longer have any office staff and are asking bakers and makers to monitor emails. We thank you for your patience and will be sure to respond as soon as possible. If it is regarding a cake, please not that the only cakes that are available are the ones offered on our ordering platform  https://order.cakeandloaf.ca/ - we are hopeful that this will be able to change as time progresses : )

Why are some cake boxes taped open

when I pick up my cake? 

YAY! We finally found taller cake boxes for our 8" cakes that won't break the bank - these will be rollin' out with cakes in the new year 2022!

All of our cakes are quite tall – 5-5.5″ tall for most and we have been trying to source out proper boxes for the past 2 years. Most of the box companies we found offered appropriate boxes for our height but the price per unit was outlandishly high. We are still on the hunt!

In the meantime, please know that having the box open slightly shouldn’t be an issue and we can alter the box in some way to cover completely upon request. Custom cakes are more challenging as they may be 2-4 tiers or have appliqués on top.
