QUALITY BAKING SINCE 2010

Back in 2010, Cambridge was lacking a “brick-and-mortar” place where you could get cupcakes your mouth would be excited about. We set out to change that in December of 2010. We are, Jen and Arthur, and together we make up the core of Tiny Cakes. We each bring complimentary skillsets, that allow us to produce some of the best tasting cake you will ever experience. Neither of us is classically trained in our craft, but our drive, passion and grit enabled us to make Tiny Cakes Waterloo Region’s most sought after bakery!

Today, of course, we make more than just cupcakes. Our lineup has evolved over the years to include bakery style cakes, pastries, desserts, cookies and breads. Quality, and above all else – great taste – are what guides us in our quest. We are committed to rekindling your love affair with desserts. After all, if you are going to indulge, it better be a great tasting dessert. You know that feeling you get in your knees, after you’ve tasted something so great, that you’d swear it’s the best thing you ever had? That’s what we strive for. Dessert should be the final touch to a great dinner – it should not be an afterthought. Make it a Tiny Cakes final touch – whether it’s a simple cupcake or an elegant mousse.

Of course, we can’t do it all by ourselves, hence we have had the privilege to work with some amazing people over the years, and continue to build our team with likeminded individuals. Together, we are dedicated to provide an excellent and unforgettable service.

Beyond having the best customer service Jen and Arthur are true artists at baking. They don't just sell you a cupcake. They sell your palate an incredible taste adventure.

My partner and I have been going to Tiny Cakes every month for more than 7 years to celebrate our relationship. We've tried every flavour and even find it hard to pick our favourite ones! Their customer service is wonderful, their cakes are delicious, and I even give a birthday cupcake to my students. Highly recommended!!

We booked them for our wedding; they delivered on time and the presentation was clean and nice. The cupcakes were absolutely delicious! Everybody loved them! Try the red velvet and brownie cheesecake – sooooo good.

Tiny cakes are always the best! Professional and friendly customer service. Impeccable and delicious cupcakes! These are not just cupcakes, they are made with love and amazing skills! Seriously, the only place I go, no where else can make cupcakes like these! I recommend the knotty pine butter almond 😍

My wife and I have been loyal customers for some time now...! The entire team at Tiny Cakes are great, especially Jennifer...! Knowing that we’re always in for some of our grandkids...I happened to mention our four year old granddaughters love of unicorns...a picture speaks a thousand words...! Miss Ella loved them and even shared them with her brothers...!

Stopped by for the first time today after the farmer's market. The focaccia loaves looked gorgeous, and I'm sitting down right now with a cup of tea and their pumpkin cheesecake cupcake. It is absolutely DIVINE.

Val M.

My brother, boyfriend and I went in today for the first time and tried a variety of things (coconut cream pie cupcake, cannoli, pecan butter tart, etc). Everything was delicious! And the staff was very friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back!
