Hope everyone had a relaxing and foodie during Easter weekend (April 15-16) celebrating with your family and friends. I love celebrating Easter at this time of year in April where it starts feeling like Spring with warm and sunny days ahead, flowers are starting to bloom, and it starts looking like Spring with colourful flowers, trees leaves and Easter eggs.
The best part of celebrating Easter is of course the delicious desserts after your huge dinner feast surrounded by your family and friends. It is the perfect excuse to savour some sweet desserts and at the same time sharing it with your family, which makes it sweeter to enjoy together.
During long Easter weekend, I stopped by Short & Sweet Bakeshop at their new location on Yonge Street located at Yonge and Davisville. I been to Short & Sweet Bakeshop a few times now at their Avenue Road location and enjoyed their delicious cupcakes. I thought it was perfect timing to finally stop at their new location on Yonge Street as they opened it earlier this year in January 2017.
For those who haven’t heard of Short & Sweet Bakeshop, here are a few quick facts about this sweet bakeshop.

- Freshly made everyday
- 100% Nut Free Bakery
- Offers cupcakes, custom cakes, sammies, cookies
- Also offers gluten-free cupcakes

I love the new location on Yonge Street as it is conveniently a short walk about 5 minutes from Yonge & Davisville intersection, easily accessible those taking transit. It is a cozy, bright and friendly bakeshop. I like the interior look with wooden tables and the fresh look with little plants on the tables making it feel like home. I love how the sun shines inside the bakeshop creating an uplifting and welcoming feeling.
I was greeted by two friendly staff at the counter. There were quite a few cupcake selections left even though it was in the late afternoon when I arrived so I got lucky as I know usually they sell out pretty quickly. It was hard to decide which one as they all looked so pretty and delicious to try.
I finally decided on 2 of their Easter theme cupcakes and the lemon Raspberry cupcake to share with my sisters. I love sharing my desserts with my sisters as it is always sweeter to share…:)
I ended up loving the lemon Raspberry cupcake as I love the surprise lemon filling inside the cupcake that made it so delicious! The cupcake itself was moist and soft. Overall, definitely would stop by again to Short & Sweet Bakeshop for more delicious cupcakes and other baked goods as I would love to try their cookies as some of you know, I love my cookies so hopefully next time I would get to sample one.
Even though Easter has come and gone, if you are looking for a delicious and sweet cupcake to satisfied your cupcake craving, I highly recommend stopping by Short & Sweet Bakeshop yourself to enjoy a pretty & sweet cupcake and see why I love these cupcakes.
For now, I leave you with these pretty & sweet cupcake thoughts and I’m off on my next search for my next sweet or maybe healthy dessert bakeshop or cafe.
