End of Summer Break!

Unbelievable...here we are at the end of August already! Where did the summer go? How did you spend your summer? Ours was filled with gorgeous wedding cakes, baby shower and birthday cakes, some super yummy cupcakes of the month and of course delicious summer fruit pies. After all of that, we're taking a small break. We'll be closed from Monday August 29th to Monday September 5th. We'll be back on the 6th, rested and ready for an exciting fall, new flavours and fresh cake ideas.
Enjoy the rest of your summer. Hope it's filled with yummy things!

A baby shower and a new Cupcake of the month!

Well, here we are! Right in the middle of the summer already! So far, summer has been so much fun at yummy stuff- everyone has been hard at work in the kitchen making wedding cakes, birthday cakes, pies, jams and everything in between.

Last weekend, Morag and some friends threw a lovely little baby shower, and of course- Morag was in charge of the desserts! Take a look at this darling little sweet table spread:

The whole thing turned out perfectly- don't you think?

It seems as though I just told you all about the July cupcake of the month (which, by the way, was a hit!) and now, here I am again with a brand new cupcake to tell you about. This month, were featuring a cupcake to completely indulge in. A real treat to get you through the rest of this sweltering summer- I know I need it!
You will recognize the name, because these little gold-foil wrapped chocolates make an appearance yearly at Christmas time... we couldn't wait until then for you to taste the Ferrero Rocher Cupcake! It's a dark chocolate cupcake with a nutella ganache filling (we really could stop here, that much is delicious enough!) and a chocolate hazelnut buttercream topping garnished with a toasted hazelnut. Wow! This one tastes exactly like it should- like a Forrero Rocher chocolate.
Just a quick reminder about our other cupcake were featuring all summer: the S'mores cupcake is back on our shelves and selling like crazy! Come on in and try one before the end of the summertime!
