pink + velvet = pride 2013

Dufflet celebrates Toronto Pride with a special offer exclusively at our Downtown location (787 Queen Street West). From June 22 - 30 you can save $2 off a 9” or $1 off a 6” Pink Velvet Cake.

Red Velvet cakes are famous for being ... well, famous!

Earliest recipes originate from the southern U.S. and use everything from beet juice to artificial food dyes to enhance their ruddy hue under a blanket of white frosting.

Dufflet reinvents this come-back classic via natural food chemistry (cocoa, cinnamon and buttermilk) to create her magical Pink Velvet Cake.

Moist sheets of spicy, cocoa enriched cake are layered with a sweet cream cheese icing that is naturally tinted pink - no artificial colours, no preservatives!

Dufflet Pastries is also an annual sponsor at the Pride and Remembrance Run, Saturday June 29th. For more info, please check their website at

you say it's your birthday?

No celebration is complete without a Dufflet Fresh Collection 6” or 9” cake (view our Price List here or a custom celebration cake for larger groups. (buying guides for larger celebration cakes is here

Add a hand-piped message or an edible picture (cartoons, photos, logos, etc.) atop your cake to make it truly unique!

Not all cakes are suitable for hand-piped buttercream inscriptions (like our Raspberry Charlotte pictured above). For cakes with intricate or fragile finishes you can always select a large or small chocolate plaque to hold your message (or image) to top your cake!

Party trays or custom selections of tarts, cookies or cupcakes are perfect for events large and small. Check out our Sweet Tray ideas on our Downloads page.

Delivery is available Monday to Friday from 10am - 6pm. Pricing varies by location.

the mclauglins ride more bike!

I just met two of the nicest people as they stopped off at our Queen West location for Tour de Dufflet. Here's Sharon and Brian McLaughlin who've taken the Eat More Cake, Ride More Bike challenge for 4 years running!

The number of people who participate more than once in a year, or make it an annual ride with a friend, never ceases to amaze me. You people are so awesome and I hope you know how grateful we are that you enjoy the Tour so much!

Eat More Cake, Ride More Bike ... make new friends.
