Simply Yummy Bakery is both a bakery and a custom celebration cake shop. Each cake is baked with the finest ingredients and designed to be the perfect complement to your special day.
This has been a big year for us as January 2016 we outgrew our Yonge Street location and MOVED to a bigger location (still in Aurora!) check out the map at the bottom of the page.
Chef and owner Megan Flynn remembers childhood occasions not by the presents she got, but by the flavour of cake she ate. It was this love for baked goods that kept calling to her while she was growing up. Megan decided to follow her heart (and sweet tooth) to the George Brown College, where she enrolled in their Baking and Pastry Arts Management Program.
At culinary school, Megan studied under some of the best in the cake business. Chef Megan graduated with high honors and went on to intern at Phipps Desserts, Toronto.
Megan decided to open her own pastry catering business in 2009. She spent over a year perfecting her own recipes and many from her Grandmother, while selling delicious sweets to a local gourmet market and private clients, earning rave reviews from customers.
Megan opened Simply Yummy Bakery in 2010 to accommodate the demand for her baked goods. Delicious, beautiful and one-of-a-kind, any baked good from Simply Yummy Bakery is sure to be a treat for both your eyes and taste buds.
How do we cut the cake?
At Simply Yummy Bakery, we always send ‘Cake Cutting Instructions’ for the designated server of your delicious cake! By following the instructions, the required number of slices can be achieved ensuring that each guest enjoys the dessert. Once the recipients have made their ‘official slice’ the cake can be separated and sliced and served.
Are you a nut free, gluten free or other health conscious bakery?
Unfortunately, we are not.
Do you make mini or jumbo cupcakes?
Absolutely!Just pick the flavour of the cake and icing you would like and place an order. Get in touch either by phone or email!
Do you make custom/ character cakes?
Yes we do. If you have a picture or an idea we can go from that, or create one for you!
Do you provide the flowers for the cake?
Once the design has been established, if fresh flowers are to be a part of the exterior decoration, these are often coordinated with the supplying florists. At Simply Yummy Bakery, we will advise how many blooms will achieve the design and ask that the client request more flowers from the florist. In order to have matching tones, it is important for all the flowers to come from the same batches. You may ask the florist to increase the floral order to include flowers for the cake, in order to keep the colors consistent – most important for pictures! This will then be controlled by your choice and number of blooms. Simply Yummy Bakery will pick up the cake flowers the day before the wedding and keep them cool until they are to be used on the cake, for the reception or party.
Can we have more than one flavour of cake, within our special cake?
Oh yes! Especially when you have many favourite flavours, it is fun to provide different cake types with different fillings, within the cake! For instance, a three tier cake can have three different cakes with a choice of different fillings! Definitely more interesting and becomes a highlight of conversation, too! The guests will love it!
