Canada Post's Impending Strike
As you may be aware, Canada Post Corporation is negotiating a new collective bargaining agreement with the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW). While McCall's hopes negotiations between Canada Post and CUPW are resolved , we have temporarily suspended shipping with Canada Post and directed all shipments with FedEx.

To help you prepare, please note the following key points:
Shipments  delays may occur due to the amount of incremental volume on FedEx
Where possible, delivery will be attempted to extended service areas where it would have been normally handed off to Canada Post. If FedEx are unable to deliver your package, it will be available for pickup at a FedEx location
Status of your shipment(s) may be checked at fedex.ca/track
Your business is important to us and we are committed to providing the best possible service.

With the arrival of summer, the wedding season is now in full stride. Weddings are more than just about love--it is about having the most beautiful of everything for that special moment! The centrepiece of any event is the cake and choosing one that speaks to the bride and groom is tricky. In addition, how it tastes and the flavours and fillings to infuse also plays a part. To keep things fun. exciting and chic, incorporating emerging trends is a must.

Hand-painted scenes directly onto the cake
Metallic cakes
 High sheen metallic gloss onto the cake's surface or in the cake's details
Lace cakes
 The look of embroidered lace doilies or handkerchiefs draped over the cake
Woodland-themed cakes
 Accessorized with herbs, small bits of greenery and vines
Geometric-patterned cakes 
Dressed up in chevron, octagonal and other popular shapes and logos
White-on-White cakes
All decked out in white, using different textures as the focal point
Naked cakes
Bearing it all--being able to see the cake in all its' glory, filling and flavours!
Ruffled cakes
A light and airy look, decorating with large or small modern ruffles around the cake
