I started my love for baking and designing in 2008, making treats out of my home for friends and family. Soon enough, people were commissioning me to create sweets for their gatherings. Encouraged by my friends, I decided to try my hand at a cupcake shop – all I needed was a name!

A group of friends and I had a brain-storming session and began coming up with names like “Creative Cakes” and “Sweet Delights,” but I was hoping for something more personal. My name, Wendy, comes from Peter Pan so I thought about naming the shop “Tinkerbell” or “Dreamcakes.” That’s when my friend Dee told me about Peter, Wendy and the thimble…

In Peter Pan, Wendy gives Peter a thimble and he thinks it’s a kiss. It’s a gift of kindness, represents something small (cupcakes, anyone?) and it sounds great! Thanks Dee!

“Our Wonderful Customers!”

 Our customers are number one & we promise total customer
satisfaction with our services.

Just wanted to say that the staff LOVED the cupcakes! Consensus was that they had tons of flavour, were moist, and some of them were – well – decadent – like a cupcake should be!!! Thanks so much. Love your little shop and it is amazing you get such great produce out of such a small place! One of my colleagues regularly goes by and buys her daughter gluten free products and she says they are delicious. Thanks so much!

I just wanted to thank you guys for offering vegan ice cream! My friends want to go for ice cream, and I always get left out, since I’m vegan (and lactose intolerant, so I can’t even cheat!).
But you guys serve such amazing ice cream, that it doesn’t take any convincing to get my friends to go see you guys instead of wherever they’d usually go.
Thank you so much, you guys!
(The banana was voted the best, unanimously by all of us!)

Just wanted to say what a fabulous job you did on the Porsche Cake. Karl loved it and it was a real hit with our guests. And it was delicious too!
Thanks for everything. We’ve attached a photo of the birthday boy with the cake.

I just wanted to write and say thank you so much for the wonderful hat cake – the likeness to the original was spot on and it tasted delicious (I am actually eating a piece that was left over as I type).   However, I think the best review was provided by Kumanan – the owner of the hat and recipient of the cake – please see his comments below.
Thank you again and happy baking!
With kind regards,

Thank you so much for doing the cake for us.  I saw it once we got to the venue and it all looked great!  It all tasted amazing too!

What was perfect was your cake!!!!!! Holy jumpin’ it was INSANE!!!! You blew us all away by the look of the cake, and then we all just about died when we bit into it. Seriously, BEST. CAKE. EVER. I knew it would be good but didn’t know a cake could be this good.

Thank you so much for your part in making my grandmother’s 90th bday so memorable, I can’t tell you how much it meant to me that you took such care in putting together this beautiful cake. Your cake was truly one of the highlights of the day. I actually cut an extra piece for myself and am munching on it now. We had 36 people and the two layers were definitely sufficient, we had about a quarter of the cake left (didn’t last long after our friends popped in after the party).
Thanks again, brilliant work – stunning and beyond delicious.

I am just writing to say a sincere thank you for the beautiful work you put into the cake. It sat so nicely on the table and all the guests thought it was so lovely, they didn’t want to cut it! After we got the ball rolling on that, they really enjoyed how moist and tasty it was. I left the business cards on the table so I’m sure you have some brand new fans!
