There’s nothing “vanilla” about the cupcakes on offer at Ooh La La. Every day, the shop bakes up a dozen different kinds of cakes with one featured cupcake per week. Chocolate and coffee lovers will have an affair with the “French Kiss” (rich dark chocolate cake topped with mocha icing and a chocolate covered coffee bean), while little kids will do pirouettes for the “Pink Ballerina” (moist vanilla cake topped with strawberry icing and sprinkles). Holiday themed cakes are also a hit, with special designs coming out for Easter, Christmas, Halloween and Valentine’s Day. For those who can’t make up their mind, Ooh La La offers a variety pack of minis so you can sample different flavours. Cupcakes come beautifully packaged in specially designed boxes or clamshells, adding to the appeal.
Make your wedding even sweeter
Cupcakes are becoming more and more popular at weddings and Ooh La La has all the ingredients to put the icing on your big day. The shop does custom orders and will work with you to create your perfect cupcakes, whether you want a special flavour or icing to match your wedding colours. Special dietary needs can also be accommodated. Cupcakes look impressive on display, and a team from Ooh La La offers attractive glass and silver cake stands for rent and will do the setup for you.
Connecting with the community
Since 2008, Ooh La La has been offering Victorians a sweet spot to enjoy a decadent treat. The shop doubles as a café and has a Paris feel from the mini chandeliers and tiny Eiffel Towers to the checkered floor and mint green walls. Grab a seat at one of the ornate wrought iron tables and enjoy a sweet treat with a Discovery Coffee or Silk Road Tea, both local suppliers. A keen supporter of Victoria businesses, Ooh La La also buys butter and eggs from local farmers. In addition to brightening the moods of countless people every day, the shop also gives back to the community by donating a portion of all profits to Opportunity International Canada.
