Creating the “Gayest Cake Ever”
So, in partnership with Chris Farias, we may have caused a little buzzy buzz in Hamilton, ON, Canada and around the Globe…
You may have seen this bright, rainbow-coloured, golden extravaganza light up the internet on many different news and personal platforms – this cake demanded attention and that’s exactly what it got!
Chris approached us with his request for the “gayest cake ever” and we did not hesitate for one second. This cake’s design and creation was approached with much love and acceptance, by our talented cake decorator – Quinn Pallister. The vision was to encompass love, acceptance, pride and the love of both Chris + Jared as they celebrate their anniversary and prepare for their up coming nuptials! This request was extra meaningful for Quinn, who’s mom married her wife just 2 years ago – The concept of Love is Love couldn’t be stronger in her family.
Cake and Loaf Bakery believes in creating a safe environment for our customers and employees, where inclusion, positivity and community support are at the forefront. We say it loud and proud, and whenever possible… with cake!!
Love is Love!
More Cake Less Hate.

In celebrating my engagement to Jared Lenover (It’s been a year… 8 months ’till the big day!!) I wanted to get him a cake to celebrate (he loves cake…as do I!). So I called my local bakery, @cakeandloafbakery and requested the GAYEST cake they could make. Without hesitation, and with much excitement, they said “We’ll do it!!!” This is what I got. I am in tears right now I’m so happy.
Being part of the LGBTQ+ community isn’t easy for many. And that’s an huge understatement. But I am proud of who I am, and how fare WE have come. I am proud to be a gay Canadian who can order a cake and not get turned down because of who I love. I love this country, and I love my community.
If you believe that #LoveIsLove, please share, and show our neighbours to the south that we support them. That we empathize with their struggles. That Canada is loud and proud and will make them any cake their heart desires.”
If you’re looking for a way to Support Locally, Chris Farias has created these amazing tshirts –
IT’S NOT ABOUT A CAKE. It’s about inclusion, human rights, and so much more.
100% of the profits from this shirt and all “it’s not about a cake” mechandise will go directly to LGBTQ+ positive charities in Hamilton.
