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. We recently moved into a new space at 79 Queen Street and we look forward to many more years of growth in downtown.

​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 may turn around an order in 24 hours or less if the schedule allows. Complex, custom orders still require 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 the studio. Please review our galleries (best viewed in desktop version) under Menu and visit Facebook 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.
