Happy birthday cakes is great! It really depends on what kind of cake you are looking for...Their fruit torte is amazing!!! Fresh fruit and whipped cream!
I agree with one of the other posters though Whole Foods has wonderful cakes. We recently had one that looked like a present that was chocolate mouse covered in chocolate ganache. Yummy! Good luck

looks yummy! have bookmarked them!


btw...if you want to do something different, you can take a photo to Dairy Queen and have it copied onto a cake. Did this with my son's fav band for his bday, it was a hit!

Art House looks great.

I know the OP mentioned high end, but for super markets La Roca cakes at Lablaws aren't too bad. The chocolate truffle mousse is a my favourite.

Once you've bought from them, you won't buy your cakes anywhere else.

There's a Chinese bakery at the plaza at the NW corner of Creditview/Burnhamthorpe that makes fantastic birthday cakes. They aren't nearly as overwhelmingly sweet as traditional "Canadian" cakes tend to be.

Ordered my daughter's birthday cake from there this past August. It was approx $30 for a standard size round cake, but much much better than anything you'd get from a grocery store bakery. They WILL get my future business.

Last time bought a $25 green tea & red bean cake, people loved it (I did not have a piece at all :( )

I bought one for a co-worker's birthday and all the people in my team loves it (they aren't Chinese)

Having those Chinese bakery for the past 30 years, I think I'll give Art House Dessert a try.

I just phone them to order a birthday cake for my 2-yr-old daughter and they don't have the cake I want "in stock", but they asked me to pick it up in 2 hours (and although they usually close at 5pm, they'll wait for me until 6pm the latest to pick up the cake!!) since they are going to make one for me right now!! Great customer service! I never had such a fresh birthday cake before.

On the advice of this thread, I tried out a cake from Art House in Mississauga this weekend. I went with the 10" 2-tone chocolate mousse cake. Ordered Friday at ~3:00 PM and it was ready for pickup Saturday morning at 11:00 AM. $30, no tax, paid with VISA.
The cake was beautifully decorated and was more than enough to serve the 10 adults we had at the party. The height was noticeably smaller than most grocery store cakes but that's ok by me. I don't think anyone wants a 6" high mousse cake anwyays.
Flavour-wise it was about as sweet as you'd expect with a beautiful texture. Everyone seemed to enjoy it. I wasn't blown-away by the taste myself, but I'm not much of a cake person anyways especially when it's chocolate.

Pros:
Great customer service, good website with pictures and descriptions of all the available cakes

Cons:
Tricky-to-find location

Moral:
I'd order from them again but would try something a bit more exotic than chocolate mousse.
