A love of fine desserts, quality ingredients and warm hospitality: these are the three key ingredients that have made Kitsilano-based Sweet Obsession Vancouver’s leading independent cake shop since Lorne Tyczenski and Stephen Greenham opened their doors in 1993.

“They both left very different careers; Lorne was in retail and Stephen was in real estate. And they decided together to follow Lorne’s dream of becoming a pastry chef and opening his own pastry shop and cafe,” says Andrea Thorgilsson, Sweet Obsession’s general manager.

While Lorne provided the baking talent, Stephen took care of the business side of things and, before long, he began to design fresh floral and sugared fruit arrangements for their signature flans, tortes and wedding cakes. Over the years Sweet Obsession has attracted a loyal following, and has doubled in size to satisfy their many clients.

meilleurs desserts à Vancouver

Il y en a pour tous les goûts...le choix peut être difficile à faire tellement le présentoir est alléchant. Ils sont beaux mais tout aussi bons! Le resto est petit, pas idéal pour un grand groupe. Ils font des gâteaux sur demande pour occasions spéciales...mariages, etc...

The Best Cakes in the City

Next time you have a special occasion to celebrate don't settle for a lardy, fake-tasting grocery store cake. Instead, head over to Sweet Obsession and show the guest or guests of honour that you really care. Sweet Obsession uses only quality ingredients in the fanciful creations they offer and it shows in the taste! If you can think of the cake, they make it here! From Hedgehog to Peanut Butter Chocolate Mousse to Flans to Tarts to St. Honores Sweet Obsession is truly a cake lovers paradise! I especially recommend the Peanut Butter Chocolate Mousse and the Chocolate Ganache. If its possible to overdose on rich chocolatey taste these two are just the ones to do it. The best part is you can buy their cakes by the slice or in 6, 8 and 10 inch formats depending on if you are there for a romantic little after dinner dessert or feeding a party. And for those REALLY special occasions, weddings, they also are recognized as one of the premiere wedding cake makers in the city with artfully prepared tasty creations that your guests will swoon over. Don't settle for poor or average cakes...get your cakes at Sweet Obsession! They're worth every penny.

Where to find lovely lemon desserts in Vancouver

Where to find lovely lemon desserts in Vancouver

Want to experience the veritable motherlode of lemon desserts? Venture into Sweet Obsession, where they make stunning lemon mousse cakes and lemon-orange flans with blueberry compote, dainty lemon dacquoise, puffy, towering lemon danishes, and moist, dense lemon blueberry pound cake. My personal favourite, however, is the humble lemon ginger cookie – a chewy shortbread with just a hint of ginger that pairs perfectly with a cup of tea.

I love New York (cheesecake): Some of Vancouver’s best

Known for more than just their cheesecake, this popular pastry and cake shop is a dream for anyone with a sweet tooth. But their cheesecakes are, simply, to die for. A simple selection of four — New York, chocolate marble, mango and lemon — the recipe manages to be both sweet and savoury, with that kick of salty cheese shining through as it should. And if you’re looking for the full experience, head next door to their full-service restaurant where the cakes are on the dessert menu.
