About Frosting



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 were so welcomed by residents and business owners in Downtown Dartmouth, we feel a wonderful sense of community. 

​Frosting is a boutique custom order studio requiring notice for orders. We require a minimum of 10 days for pre-orders. 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.

Frosting, of course has been changed since the pandemic COVID-19 has begun. We are still in wonderful Downtown Dartmouth but we recently moved into a new shared space and we are a by appointment private studio. All pickups have a pre-arranged pickup time slot. We have downsized in all areas and we are adjusting our operating model as we move forward. We follow all cleaning and distance protocols to ensure safety of workers and clients and we have adjusted packaging for smaller orders and friends & family drop-offs to encourage the maintenance of small, approved gatherings. Sometimes a single boxed cupcake left on a doorstep is a perfect way to let someone know you care.

We love to work with our clients to create beautiful and wonderfully-delicious works of art for all celebrations. We make simple or elaborate, custom-designed cakes, cupcakes and cake pops for everyday occasions, intimate celebrations, corporate gatherings and lavish events.
