Was trying to walk off lunch when we stopped in at For the Love of cake - two cupcakes later was still walking. Very good selection of gourmet cupcakes - really enjoyed the salted caramel chocolate. According to my companion some are filled, which ups the ante. Would certainly recommend a stop here if you're visiting Liberty Village.

These artists are some of the best I've seen! The cakes they make are quality and gorgeous! Expensive yes, but worth it, YES! The mini cupcakes are divine! I prefer them over the larger cupcakes because they don't have a filling. The large ones have filling, if you like that then go for it. Moist, tasty, and good!

Best gluten free cupcakes I've had. They have limited GF cupcakes available daily. Nice selection. Best to order in advance so not to be disappointed. My favs - chocolate raspberry & death by chocolate. Great glutenous cupcakes as well & more variety.

Easily the best gluten-free cupcakes I've had. Their unique because there are 4 elements to each cupcake. Sometimes, I get tired of all the cake in a cupcake - but these, they have a nice hidden bit of wonderfulness in the middle of each one. Try them. Just do it. You won't be disappointed!

I have ordered many custom cakes and cupcakes from this shop and have been blown away by their work each and every time. Their flavour selection is great and attention to detail impeccable. The staff is helpful and friendly.

Recently came here with my fiance for a wedding cake tasting and got to try some of their flavours. All the flavours we tried were extremely good; my fiance fell in love with their Guinness chocolate flavour and I loved their Grasshopper - essentially their mint flavour. The owners seemed to be very knowledgeable on cake, its preparation, and cake... More

Every cupcake that we have had has been fantastic! We have purchased cupcakes here a number of times now and no matter the flavour, the cupcake has been moist and the icing has been perfect (never too sweet or too dense). We will continue to use For The Love of Cake for future get-togethers that we hold as our friends... More

Very very tasty cupcakes! Icing was nice and soft... Not like the hard garbage you get from grocery store cupcakes. Cake part was nice and fluffy. 7 minis were $12.50, so a little expensive, but you really do get what you pay for. Would return for sure.

Presentation, taste and service all get 5 stars from me! I have tried cupcakes all over the country and find that there are very few that satisfy my cupcake needs. I feel that with cupcakes, I should be able to eat it with my eyes closed and decipher what the flavour is based on my taste buds alone. But I've... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Queen Street and West Queen West
Known as the Art & Design District, West Queen West is one of the most energetic and dynamic of Toronto's neighborhoods. Along with its great modernist museums, clubs, and restaurants, it's home to some of the funkiest specialty shops, ranging from clothing to stationary to collectables, and caters to niche and vintage shoppers of all kinds. That makes it a mecca for creatives, including hobbyists designers, writers, and painters. With ink on their hands and fabric pelts in their bags, visitors to Queen Street traverse the avant-garde blend of historic architecture and ultra-contemporary fare. Home to some of Toronto's chicest hotels and most modish java fixes, busy with street cars, and always suffused with live music drifting onto packed patios at bars and clubs by nightfall, the vibrancy of West Queen West is undeniable.
