While Toronto’s food scene is still in a semi-paused state, birthday celebrations aren’t stopping!

And just because you can’t go to your favourite restaurant for dinner doesn’t mean you shouldn’t treat yourself on your special day. Our vote? Go ham for dessert.

If you’re looking to go all-in for your birthday from home this year — as you deserve to — these are the spots you can count on for a mouthwatering cake:

A shining star on both King East and Dovercourt Road, this bakeshop serves delicate pastries that bridge the space between “mouthwatering” and “looks to pretty to eat.” These days, the shop is weekend running pop-ups on both the east and west side of towns, where goodies including their cake cups are available. That’s a personal cake in a cup, people! Plus pavlova, too.

Address: 108 Dovercourt Road

Address: 362 King Street East

Sweets and sass, sass and sweets. They go together like peanut butter and jelly, and Bake Shoppe knows it. That’s why here, you’ll find mouthwatering treats infused with unexpected flavours, painted with images of Drake and iced with bold statements that you can’t help but grin at. The Ruffles Cake, pictured here, “feeds 12ish, contains no real cake,” and only requires two days’ notice for ordering.

While this french pastry shop is mostly dedicated to eclairs, cakes are to be found on the menu, and they’re made with just as much care as the tinier offerings. Made with no artificial flavourings, each of these works of art is decorated so elaborately that you almost won’t want to eat it. Almost.
