Gourmet cupcakes in Toronto (and everywhere else)
Cupcakes are back baby! These delightful diminutive treats are making a huge comeback after their heyday in the seventies and there are so many good reasons why.
Cupcakes are so much easier to deal with than cake; no need for plates and cake forks as each cupcake is a self-contained miracle of confection. You also don’t have to decide which flavour of cake you want, because with cupcakes, you can have one of each flavor.
The rise in popularity of the cupcake has also birthed a large array of amazing gourmet flavours, incredible icing and unbelievably complex design. So popular has cupcaking become, that there are whole stores dedicated to cupcakes, cupcake trucks and even cupcake wedding cakes. If, like me, you are a fan of the cupcake, then here is a selection of the very finest places to get cupcakes in Toronto.
The flagship shop on Yonge and Eglinton will soon be joined by another outlet on Bathurst and Rutherford. The Cupcake Shoppe has 11 flavours of cupcakes every day as well as 28 flavours of custom cupcakes to choose from.
Although this shop makes great cupcake trees for weddings, you don’t need to be tying the knot to take advantage of their gourmet offerings. Think chai latte, banana cream pie, passion fruit and peanut butter cupcakes, YUM!
This Dundas Street West haven of goodness serves up vegan cupcakes at their finest. Brightly colored indigo, aquamarine and the signature cerise frosting top these delightful treats. Pop in for a selection or custom order ahead. OMG also supplies restaurants and caterers with their tasty vegan cupcakes.
Dressed down, shabby-chic and delightful, this cupcake house is one of Toronto’s finest. Their wacky flavours give you a wide selection of delicious, moist cupcakes. You can find the cupcake house at 2328 Queen St E.
