Cakespiration: Calgary Cakes for Your Wedding, Birthday or Just Because

This is your five minute sugar break with 17 photos of cakes from local bakers that will make you want to celebrate something, anything, just so you can order cake.


Maybe you want a cake that is five tiers and accented with gold. Perhaps you want something simple and a little naked. Maybe something a little more novel, like a cake shaped like poutine or one that is reversible, strikes your fancy. Whatever your cake style, there is a Calgary baker for you. They are artists who get extra excited for custom creations or personal stories to riff on for your wedding, birthday, anniversary or retirement cake. They make your cake look good and they'll perfected the flavours on the inside too.

These 17 cake photos are mouthwatering and reason enough to celebrate.
