Best Birthday Cakes in Vancouver

Butter Baked Goods Funfetti Cake
I love cake and the best type of cake is celebratory birthday cake! I consider myself a bit of a sweets connoisseur and have probably eaten my way through 80% of the bakeries across Metro Vancouver. 

My editor at Dished Vancouver aka The Daily Hive Vancouver recognized my infatuation with sweets and gave me the task of compiling a list of the best birthday cakes in the Lower Mainland! Now I take my title of cake aficionado quite seriously; therefore, I only included bakeries that bake the most scrumptious cakes. How do I know this? I sampled treats at each and everyone of the locations. From many of the bakeries listed I have had my own past birthday cakes made from. 

In the last few years alone I have ordered birthday cakes from Cadeaux, Thierry, Trafiq, Small Victory and  Purebread most of which you can find on my Instagram plus all my other dessert indulgences. These are not the only places that I get my cakes from. If you follow me on Instagram (@PinkTeaLatte) or have read my past posts, you will know I also get a lot of my cakes custom made from a stellar private baker, @MonLovesToBake . I did not forget her! In fact, I actually called her up and asked if I could include her, but she wanted to wait until she had a storefront before she got such large-scale exposure. 

Some of my favourite birthday cakes is the London Fog from Cadeaux. The whipped vanilla-bean chantilly is airy and light thus allowing the more delicate london fog tea flavour to shine. I also often find myself going to Thierry because their cakes are not the traditional layered sponge cake with buttercream. They do more intricate dessert cakes. I often go there in the in the Spring and Summer aka berry season for their Red-Berry Tart. A lovely tart shell is filled with vanilla bean custard then covered with local raspberries and strawberries. Thierry only wants to use the best ingredients, so restricts it to when fresh local berries are being harvested. 

I want to know in the comments below what your favourite birthday cake is? Where do you go in Vancouver? And go read my article!!
