Our Story...

Frosting began in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia in 2011 with a curiosity and a passion for cake design. The team shared a kitchen space with a local restaurant making custom cakes, cupcakes and cake pops until we took the big step out on our own in September 2014. We have been so welcomed by residents and business owners in Downtown Dartmouth, we feel a wonderful sense of community. 

​Frosting’s cakes, cupcakes and cake pops are available by pre-order only. We do also have the occasional pop-up shop for individual sales of cupcakes and cake pops and we do attend occasional markets and downtown events. Keep an eye on our social media sites for such events.

​Frosting is a boutique custom order studio requiring notice for orders. We require a minimum of 7-10 days to turn around an order. Complex, custom orders may require more notice – how much notice always depends on the design and the date required. Availability may be limited on some dates.

​It is super easy to book an order and arrange a pickup time at our private studio. Please review our galleries (best viewed in desktop version) under Menu and visit Facebook and Instagram for samples of our work or send us your ideas with the contact form. Consultations are by appointment please use our contact form to begin the cake conversation.

Our talented team loves to work with our clients to create beautiful and wonderfully-delicious works of art for all celebrations. We make simple and elaborate custom designed cakes, cupcakes and cake pops for everyday occasions, intimate celebrations, corporate gatherings and lavish events. Contact us today to start something delicious!


During these difficult times we are booking with limited hours, limited capacity and limited resources. We need significant notice of orders to process the request, confirm resources and ultimately create the order.  Please note availability is limited. Complete the contact form to request an order. Orders are provided a specific time slot for contactless pickup and all safety measures are adhered at the private Studio. We do not have walk-in hours.

Thank you so much for your patience and your continued support as we work our way together through these challenging times. Stay safe and be well ❤

Please Note: We are currently closed to renovate our new downtown Dartmouth Kitchen space. We look forward to serving you again in September 2021!
