The Evolution of CakeStar
Cakestar was originally founded in 2008 as the Custom cake line in partnership with the family's Italian bakery, Bona Via Bakery in Scarborough. Father Nicola Chiaravalloti was an accomplished Pastry chef and taught his daughters much about the baking world. Sisters Barbara and Monja did so well with this little side business they opened their own independent Cake shop in Longbranch, Etobicoke in 2010. Cakestar has since become a well known and loved place by both the Toronto locals and cake community. Winning the Gem of the Lakeshore award twice for best food service, Best bakery in the Reader Choice awards, along with many magazine and newspaper features they have proved their knowledge, experience and love for cake is real.
After many years together at the shop Barbara decided on a different path and now shares her knowledge and baking skills by teaching and blogging while Monja's creative passion for quality cake art continues. She is happy to provide her clientelle with exceptional service and delicious products. She has recently appeared on TV shows like Best cake Wins and the Food Networks The Big Bake, but running the shop with her amazing team is where her heart is.
She continues to be open and operating safely during these 'Covid' times, still making birthday smiles happen all over the city.
