Wedding Cakes by Temi Bakes
Q1: Tell us a little about yourself.
My name is Temi Ologbenla and I’m the Owner and Head Cake Designer at Temi Bakes. My clients love that our cakes not only look beautiful, but also taste absolutely delicious! Our dessert studio is in the South End of Halifax and is by appointment only. Our business has many product offerings – from an online store for party cakes and supplies, to dessert catering for corporate events but my favourite is definitely the custom wedding cakes.
Q2: What do you love about weddings?
We truly love “LOVE”. Even after 8 years of being in business, we still get super excited when we see our clients’ cake cutting pictures. It is such a blessing to be a part of one of the most romantic, memorable and sweetest new chapter of a couple’s life!
We like to see ourselves as part of the couple’s glam squad. We are 100% invested in the success of the wedding. We want our clients’ wedding dreams to come true. Not only do we create beautiful and delicious cakes and treats, we also make ourselves available to offer advice and vendor recommendations when needed.
Q3: Is there anything else that you’d like to share that wedding couples might want to know?
Temi Bakes started when I lived in Toronto, as a tasty creative outlet & a way for me to spread joy to everyone around me. I loved brightening the days of friends and family with homemade treats. As the business grew, I decided to fulfill a 2 year old dream of mine by taking an extended leave from my fulltime job and enrolling at one of the top confectionary schools in the world where I improved my decorating and baking skills.
In over 8 years of running the business, We’ve had the pleasure of making custom wedding cakes not just in Canada, but also in the USA and Nigeria.
We’ve also been recognized as one of the top 12 wedding cake designers in Toronto and won Bronze in a Toronto cake decorating competition. Recently, we were recognized by the Coast as one of the Halifax’s top 3 best wedding cake designers. Temi Bakes had also been featured in various blogs, newspapers and magazines in Europe and North America.
Q4: Do you have a favourite testimonial you could pass along for us to share?
“Our wedding day cake was beautiful and ocean-inspired. Temi was great at taking our ideas and developing them into something that we loved. She was very easy to talk to during our consultation, always got back to our questions quickly and was wasn’t pressuring at all.
Temi’s cake on our wedding day was delicious and she provided all the services promised. The cake was moist, and the icing was just right.
On our wedding day she arrived right on time, discreetly set up the cake and got everything ready before our guests arrived. Everyone told us how much they loved both how our cake looked and tasted!
Thank you so much for being a part of our wedding day, for your excellent service and for making it stress free.” - Ravie & Saira
