Mario’s Bake Shop Serving Up The Goods
How Mario’s Bake Shop has become the bakery everyone is talking about.
Whenever customers walk into Mario’s Bake Shop for a custom cake, owner Mario Spizzirri always personally takes their order. The 25-year veteran baker feels that in this day and age it’s not just about serving a great product, but also providing that personal experience.
“I try to come out and personally talk to all the customers,” says Spizzirri, owner of Mario’s Bake Shop. “It’s so they feel comfortable in my shop, and it allows me to answer all their questions and ensure they’re getting the service they deserve.”
This dedication has been the icing on the cake for clientele ever since Spizzirri opened Mario’s Bake Shop in Nobleton a little over a year ago. Over that time, Spizzirri has turned heads from all across Vaughan with his fresh, crisp artisan breads, decadent desserts and beautifully decorated custom cakes — and people just can’t get enough.
Whether it’s the heavenly chocolate mousse cake, the out-of-this-world New York-style cheesecake, the house gelato or any of the artistically crafted custom cakes, the desserts Spizzirri and his team create are simply to die for. And his breads? Break off a piece of fresh potato loaf, French baguette or one of the other homestyle loaves and you’ll see exactly why the city is buzzing for everything that comes out of Spizzirri’s oven.
“It’s all old-school family recipes that we’re elevating to a new level,” Spizzirri explains of his baked goods. “Whenever people taste our foods they tell me, ‘Wow, I remember this from when I was a kid,’ and that’s always rewarding.”
When Spizzirri was 11, his father Giuliano, a baker, would take him to work at 3 a.m. to help prepare the day’s fresh goods. “We would start with doughnuts, get the bread ready — a little bit of this, a little of that,” Spizzirri recalls fondly. He immediately fell in love with the craft and seeing the smiles on the faces of satisfied customers. Over the years he refined his skills and expanded his repertoire, learning how to make an assortment of delectable confections.
While Spizzirri is a master at preparing a wide variety of desserts today, he prides himself on his custom cakes. “There’s nothing you bring me that we can’t do,” he explains. From birthdays to baptisms to weddings and anniversaries, Spizzirri can create a cake as unique as the customer that orders it.
But it’s not just his baking that’s dropping jaws. Spizzirri’s hot table has become a local favourite, thanks to such authentic dishes as hearty eggplant Parmesan and mouth-watering porchetta that’s seasoned in-house and slow-roasted overnight.
“We try to give you the best of everything,” says Spizzirri. “We’re a one-stop shop for cakes, breads and catering — everything from A to Z is here. We look forward to serving this community for years to come.”
