History of our cakes.
The La Rocca tradition of dessert making began 60 years ago in Naples, Italy where our family’s passion for the art of baking inspired the many original and unique recipes we have today.
La Rocca Creative Cakes was established in Canada in 1987, by parents Lina and Harvey, continuing the family tradition. Brothers Michael and Marty joined soon after. Marty spent a year in Italy apprenticing under our family’s best and most experienced bakers. He returned to Canada with the original family recipes in hand and the passion to make a difference in the premium dessert category.
We had our first bakery and retail location set up in Woodbridge, Ontario. As demand for our desserts grew, we moved to a larger facility. Today, we are located in Richmond Hill, Ontario in a state-of-the-art facility that is BRC certified for food safety. We supply cakes throughout Toronto, the GTA, and around the world.
Our committed team of pastry chefs create and refine each La Rocca recipe to deliver a deliciously memorable experience with a blend of flavours and textures to enlighten your taste buds and evoke emotion. Marty's team of skilled bakers hand-assemble and decorate each of our specialty desserts ensuring only the perfect cake is delivered every time. With the freshest and finest ingredients used in our cakes – like real butter, fresh eggs, 35% whipped cream and rich, European chocolate, we are confident that your cake will exceed your expectations and leave you with a smile!
