What is Build-A-Cake?!

On August 25th 2015 I went to my friends birthday party and made a cake.  Nat and I used to run a cake business, but it was mostly sculpted fondant cakes, which were all the rage at the time.  This one was different than any I had ever made.  The bottom layer was a peanut butter cheese cake and the top two layers were double chocolate. Yum.
 I’ve The party was outside  at Christie Pitts, where we brought blankets and treats and watched an outdoor screening of Mean Girls. The cake was MASSIVE. Way too big for just our friends, so the birthday girl started serving it to all the people in the park.  Everyone was so grateful and loving the it! Cakes are an incredibly magical thing that never fail to make people happy. Simple as that.
Shortly after I decided to start selling these cakes as part of The Party Parade blog. The process of ordering one is easy.  If you live in Toronto and want to build your own cake for your next celebration, shoot me an email and I will send over a form to fill out.
