Cake Opera Co Toronto, Canada

I  was mesmerized when I first saw the cake's produced by Alexandria Pellegrino (the artist – fine arts major from OCAD and Cordon Bleu grad) and Jessica Smith (the pastry chef-George Brown Culinary and Cordon Bleu grad) of Cake Opera Co. in Toronto. This is what cake should look like. Artistic, full of imagination, colourful, textured, intricate, an element of fantasy and statuesque. Opened in 2007, the duo have been steadily building their brand while churning out confections like macarons and chocolates and of course stunning wedding cakes on Eglinton.

Cake Opera Co.: Moretto Masks

Cake Opera Co.'s signature 18th Century French figurine cakes have adorned the pages of dozens of the industry's most renowned publications. While we can create any style of cake imaginable, there is something truly extraordinary about creating these Baroque beauties.

Inspired by The Masquerade Ball, Morretto Mask was one of the first of her kind. The "doctor death" mask, worn by bourgeoisie to conceal their illicit rendezvous, juxtaposes the fawn in her arms, a symbol of birth and innocence. And like Morretto Masks' cloaked encounters, her gown conceals layers of sumptuous velvet cake... an equally sinful way to end any event.

Cake Opera Co.: Hall of Mirrors

There is little in this world that is more lovely than the effects of the passage of time. Mysterious and ominous natural patinas found on antique glass & mirror were the inspiration behind this majestic cake.

Created completely of cast sugar tiles and 24Kt gold molded details, it was constructed as an ode to Louis XIV, Dauphin of France, lover of luxury and excess.

Named after the Hall of Mirrors or Galarie des Glaces, a breathtaking corridor adorned with a total of 357 mirrors in the Palace of Versailles, this cake adorns our very own spectacular window display in commemoration of Cake Opera Co.'s grand opening.
