The story of Edible Art Shop begins in early 2012, when three friends decided it was time to open a business that would bring their friendship, families, and community ties together. Most importantly, they decided to do something fun that they all enjoyed. After months of studying countless spreadsheets, schedules, and store leasing options, they settled on the opportunity that best fit their natural talents and teamwork: a gourmet sweet shop...and Edible Art Shop was born.
Edible Art Shop’s vision is to create a unique experience with every bite of our high quality ingredients and hand crafted edible art pieces.
Edible Art Shop’s mission is to use the highest quality, all-natural ingredients to make from scratch the perfect dessert.
Marilisa grew up in the kitchen alongside her mother always wanting to help her mother bake for family get-togethers. As she grew older her passion and appreciation for cake design grew with her and she always found herself mesmerized by beautiful pieces of edible art. Marilisa learned some baking techniques in Italy but the majority of her education was in Toronto when she completed various cake decorating programs, but eventually enrolled in the Bonnie Gordon College of Confectionery Arts where she met her friends and business partners. In order to have an edge on the competition Marilisa invests a lot of time continuously attending specialty workshops with international cake artists and Food Network Champions. The idea of Edible Art Shop came to mind one evening when Marilisa was having dinner with both Abena and Giovanna.

Giovanna fell in love with sugar at the tender age of 6 when she would see her mother create beautiful art with desserts. As her love for beautiful desserts grew, she eventually took that passion and started her own business in 1998. She creates pastries and beautiful cakes for clients all over Toronto. In order to enhance her skills, Giovanna enrolled in the exclusive school of Baking, Bonnie Gordon College of Confectionary Arts, graduating in June 2012.
