Cupcake of the month!

I don't know if you have noticed, but we are knee deep in the Christmas season... I do believe that Parkdale may permanently smell like gingerbread from all the cookie baking we have been doing. Our oven has been doing double duty for weeks!

Because it's been nothing but gingerbread, gingerbread, gingerbread for the last few weeks we thought we would surprise you with something different- enter this month's feature flavour... Pomegranate cupcake! A cupcake made with real pomegranate (including the seeds!), topped with a cinnamon cream cheese frosting and sprinkled with fresh pomegranate seeds! Yummy!

Don't fret- for all you gingerbread lovers we are also featuring our ever popular gingerbread cupcake with chocolate buttercream frosting on it.

We are also featuring lots of awesome treats in the shop this month for Christmas (see below for our Christmas menu).

Cupcake of the month!

September is already here! That means it's time for a new cupcake of the month!

September is about savoring the last few days of summer- it's time to enjoy one last swim in the lake and a few more ice cream cones. Bathing suits and sandals will soon be swapped for cozy sweaters and winter boots. Time to have a few last summer bonfires... roast some marshmallows and eat a few more s'mores.

Wait!!! No need to go out and buy all the fixin's for s'mores- just come to yummy stuff and pick up our cupcake of the month: graham cracker base, chocolate cupcake with chocolate filling and a burnt marshmallow topping! I suggest picking up at least 2 for everyone... they are that yummy!

A great back-to-school treat!

Ahhh... school lunches: peanut butter and jam sandwich, crisp red apple, celery sticks and cookies: this has been the classic lunch since...well...sliced bread!

How about celebrating the new school year with a sandwich cake? Delicious vanilla flavoured pound cake with a peanut butter/milk chocolate and raspberry jam filling...Mmmm... yummy!

Don't be fooled by the pictures: that's a full sized cake plate, this is no ordinary sized sandwich. This clever treat serves 10-12 and costs $25.00. Please call us at least 48 hours in advance if you would like to order!

Yummy Stuff Offering Gluten Free Treats!

One of the most popular requests we get at yummy stuff is for gluten free treats. Until now we've had to turn our gluten free customers away... baking is a tricky business and doing so without traditional ingredients is even trickier! We are happy to report that (after a few test batches) we now have gluten free cupcakes and cakes! Perfectly moist, spongy cake with our oh so popular buttercream... we promise, you won't miss the gluten!

We can make gluten free cakes and cupcakes in the following flavors: chocolate, vanilla, raspberry and lemon. If you would like to order some gluten free treats, please call us at the shop (416)531-9732 or, email us at

Cupcake of the month!

This month, Yummy Stuff is celebrating a great fruit! The Mango!

Mango's are great- you can put 'em in or on almost anything and they taste good: throw one in a smoothie, make a couple into a chutney, puree one and throw it in a sauce for a fruity kick! Now, the mango becomes a cupcake!

This month, our bakers have outdone themselves with a yummy mango cupcake, topped with a mango buttercream frosting and a lime curd filling. A perfect balance of sweet with a hint of tart filling! Yummy... Enough said!

Fathers Day Treats!

Do you have the best dad ever? I do. It seems as though Dads are pre-programmed with a unique set of skills and can, on any day, be one (or all) of the following: fixer of all things broken, professional landscaper, BBQ-er extraordinaire, champion beer drinker, plumber, personal finance adviser and comedian. Let's all give our Dads a big hug and spend some time with him this weekend.

We have you covered this Fathers Day: swing by the shop and pick up something yummy to show your Dad how much you care. How about some cookies in the shapes of his favorite things? Maybe your Dad likes cake? Maybe he fancies pie? Or, maybe he is a golfer- why not pick him up a chocolate cupcake with "golf green" frosting and a golf ball topper he can use for his next tee time?

Time to treat Dad. The weather in Toronto is supposed be beautiful this weekend. I'm thinking a BBQ (burgers of course!) with potato salad, coleslaw, cold beers and lots of yummy stuff!

We named this cupcake after the man who would have definitely loved it. Introducing... The Elvis.

Fun in the sun!

Take a look at these fun cupcakes we made for a happy customer last week!

We made these little beauties for a beach themed party- but they are so cute, who wouldn't want them for any occasion? I will definitely be featuring these at my next summer BBQ!

We can make these cupcakes in any of our regular cupcake flavors. After they are frosted, we dip them in graham crumbs to make the "sand." The thong sandals, sand dollars, beach balls and starfish are all hand made out of fondant!

If you would like to place an order for custom cupcakes just like these ($5.50 each), please make sure we have 7 days notice.
