Nice cupcake treats. Very rich and creamy. Sometimes a little too much icing. They have a lot of flavours which makes mix and match fun.

I have the great fortune of visiting Wellington cakes on a regular basis through my Taste deTours. Anything and everything that comes out of Anne's kitchen is delicious. She and her staff are truly artistic bakers and they've made our tours even more successful by going that extra mile with special requests and customer responsiveness. Visit them soon, on Guelph's...

I ordered 30 bags of caramel popcorn for a thank you gift for a shower and was so disappointed when I picked them up. $2.75 for not even a cup of popcorn in a bag with a ribbon. It was too late to buy anything else but I regret paying so much for so little.

Finding a picture on Pinterest of a naked wedding cake was the easy part. I thought, havingit replicated should have been easy enough - after all, it's naked....there is no fondant or icing covering the cake, only between the layers. Sadly however, Wellington Cakes did not deliver. The cake was over done and very dry. There was very little filling... More

great, moist cupckaes with the best buttercream icing in the city. Unlike other cupcakes in the city that you can tell were frozen or not made fresh, wellington cakes are always fresh and amazing! Only downfall is parking - wish they had more visibility around the city because everyone would fall in love with their product

If you invest in making your location look up-scale then you can sometimes get away with offering low-scale product. The location is beautiful but the product is mediocre. $2.75 for one tiny cupcake with little or no flavour is exorbitant. The raspberry/white chocolate had pink coloured frosting and some tiny crumbs of white chocolate sprinkled on top. The colour and... More

I came here to check out some cupcakes, and I was not let down! My favourite was the classic carrot cupcake with cream cheese butter cream icing. I froze the others, and have been eating them all week....still SO GREAT :)

We were quite excited to try this place after reading the reviews on here. The shop is beautiful-I loved the visual appeal of it as soon as I opened the door. The lady working appeared to be disinterested and bothered by my questions with regards to the cupcakes. I arrived at 2pm and the selection was fairly limited which I... More
