Sending you all this message with a lot of love. I just wanted to send a message to say a very BIG thank you. I am truly grateful for everything you do big and small.
Without your continuous support during the last few weeks, I would have not been able to process any of my orders.
I opened my business just before we went into lockdown. To be frank, I didn’t think, I would be even slightly successful. Much to my surprise, I was and wasn’t prepared at ALL and as you all have probably figured out I’m slightly unorganized as my main focus is my 4 kiddies. It was because of LATORTA and the beautiful staff that I was able to keep my head afloat and not be a complete flop. For this I will always be forever grateful for you all.
You are all truly amazing people with incredibly beautiful, kind hearts. You all are people who always care, not only for your store, the products and me as a customer but also the kids. The first time a staff member asked me how my children were I was absolutely blown away. So thank you so much. I do most certainly appreciate you all more than you will ever realise.
I bought two bags of Manildra flour from you a few weeks back. I just wanted to tell you that it is making fabulous bread, as good as any I have ever baked (in nearly 50 years of baking our own bread). So many thanks. Needless to say, we'll be back!
I just wanted to thank you for all your help in regards to the wedding cakes! That Lemon Coconut (naked) cake with a simple buttercream was without doubt absolutely sensational !!!!!!
Just wanted to send a quick thank you to the lady who served me Thursday. Your excellent customer service and knowledge helped me make my first fondant rainbow.
Thank you for your valuable advice. It is always spot on and helps me so much.
Just want to thank Jasmina for all of her help when I came in frazzled on Satuday with the 21st! Thank God you guys have frozen cakes on the ready for unorganised bakers like myself haha!

Half an hour before closing (on a public holiday) and the day before my son’s birthday I realised I had purchase black fondant not white. I called Latorta they did an order over the phone and dropped it to my house that night. AMAZING service and the products were great too. Thank you!

I'm back to buy some more (Healthy Baker) White Bread Mix - it is awesome. Much better than my usual supermarket brand, hands down!

I used the (Manildra) Strong Bakers Flour to make some bread last night. It was my best loaf ever. This is now my favourite flour.

The girls here are so so helpful, so welcoming and willing to give you advice, interested in what your doing and give you the time of day. I was shopping at all 3 cake shops in Canberra and now I will only shop at Latorta. If I ever need something they’ll get it in for me and they call me when it has come in or give me ideas on another option.. They are by far the most amazing ladies I have met!

Found a shop, in Canberra, that had Rye flour and delivers! Put in the order yesterday morning before 9, not expecting it at all till sometime this week, only to have Latorta deliver it to me that evening! Thank you soo much for the very fast delivery, it was very unexpected in a positive way

Ordered some fondant on Saturday afternoon at about 3.30pm. Order received on my doorstep at 5pm - fantastic service! So quick at the end of the day. Wasn't expecting it to arrive until Tuesday. 🙂

Great service and they had exactly what I was after, something that I hadn’t been able to find in near on three weeks in these crazy crazy times. Thank you 😊

I second Latorta. I went there to get yeast. Whilst there, I discovered a wonderful bake shop that I didn't know existed. Can't wait for this virus thing to be over so I can spend more time exploring and shopping at their shop!
Thanks Angela for introducing me to your fine store!

Brilliant service, and same day delivery! Thanks for saving Easter while we adhere to social distancing measures. 😃
Amanda - April 2020
Hello, I just wanted to say thank you! I couldn't believe that my order was delivered same afternoon! The service was fantastic and greatly appreciated! Family very happy that we won't be running out of bread any time soon. 😊

I am a Canberra local and early last month I came to your store to buy some cake tins and cookie cutters to take with me to a work charity for Vietnamese women who are victims of domestic violence. I bought over $100 of products and when I explained it was for a charity, I was given a generous discount ..... We are in lockdown here in Hanoi but are still learning and cooking albeit in a kitchen with no running hot water. We’re still so much better off in Australia. Thank you again for your kind gesture.

I have to say that you guys went way above and beyond the call of duty in taking on the job (unasked!) of finding a good dairy-free recipe to use for the cupcake class. Thank you! It really is wonderful that my daughter could eat what she decorated without having to pay for it with a sore tummy. And yes, it really did taste good. My daughter was thrilled with her cupcakes and would love to do another of your courses. I also appreciated the staff taking the time to answer my questions from a previous course that my eldest daughter had done and giving me ideas on what I could do that would work - much appreciated. We will be back.

The staff at Latorta are always very helpful and obliging. The cake courses are amazing and informative, I have learnt so much and feel confident to try the various techniques.

A wonderful treasure trove of all things baking! A great selection of cake tins, rounds, sprinkles and cake toppers! If you can’t find it here, you probably don’t need it
