Easter Treats by Short & Sweet Bakeshop

Hi everyone,

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.

  • Founded in December 2009 by Orli Levy
  • Their baked goods are handcrafted using only the finest ingredients
  • Freshly made everyday
  • 100% Nut Free Bakery
  • Offers cupcakes, custom cakes, sammies, cookies
  • Also offers gluten-free cupcakes
  • Cater Events such as weddings, baby showers, and more

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.

Don’t forget to come back next month to see what I discover. Also you can get my latest updates for my upcoming blog posts or follow my food adventures through Twitter @SweetBFoodie24 OR Instagram @SweetBFoodie24 so you won’t miss a thing of my yummy foodie adventures.

Dessert Lady: Best Bakery & Dessert Shop in Toronto

Happy Easter everyone!!!

Thanks everyone for being patient with me waiting for another sweet review!! I been busy completing my last course for my certificate in Event Management and finished writing my final exam for it.

Easter is one of my fave holidays as it is the beginning of Spring where we get more sunny, bright and warm days ahead with the beauty of the colourful flowers and trees. Despite this earlier this week with the crazy snow in April in Toronto, this weekend has been a warmer weekend. I hope everyone enjoys the sunny day! Easter Holiday is usually the perfect time to indulgence my sweet cravings.

One of my fave bakeries in Toronto is Dessert Lady. I discovered Dessert Lady a few years ago and ever since then, it is definitely one of the places I go when I’m looking to satisfy my sweet cravings. Dessert Lady is a cozy and welcoming bakery shop located in the heart of Yorkville. The Dessert Lady specializes in a wide variety of all natural, home-made products such as: ice cream, chocolate truffles, cookies, special occasion cakes, cupcakes, and much more!

Dessert Lady has always satisfied me with their delicious, soft, and sweet pastries and desserts! Over the years, I have tried many products from Dessert Lady and each time I tried another delicious item I didn’t think it would be better than the last treat I had, but I was wrong lol!! I have tried from special occasion cakes to cookies to macarons to cupcakes to tarts, etc. Dessert Lady always has something for everyone to try!!

I have always loved Dessert Lady pastries and desserts because of the fact that they make their products fresh and it is home-made on a daily basis. I have also done in the past some custom specialty cakes and it always turns out beautifully done and delicious of course! Recently, Dessert Lady started creating their 3D Wow Cakes and I definitely recommend everyone to take a look at their samples on the website and in person, they look stunning!

I would like to personally thank Dessert Lady for the gift card that I won on Twitter, such an honor to be chosen as one of the winners in celebration for their 9th Anniversary!

I would like to wish Dessert Lady, Happy 9th Anniversary!!

Yesterday I stopped by Dessert Lady to pick up my prize and it was a perfect time to pick up some sweets for Easter and for my sweet cravings and to share it with my family as well!! I decided on some sweet Easter cupcakes, half a dozen of French macarons (flavours I chose are: Crunchy Hazelnut, Matcha Green Tea Vanilla, Raspberry, Lemon, Earl Grey, and Pistachio), and first time getting the fresh banana loaf that I been always wanting to try, but never did. If you love banana loaf, please get one from Dessert Lady, it was just delicious, one of the best I ever ate!! Wow!!!! I love their Easter chocolate lollipops that they had! Very cute!! Please check out my photos below for my delicious & sweet treats!

I simply just love them, their oatmeal raisin cookies are perfectly made, soft and fresh every time I get them!!! They remind me of cookies that my mom made when I was younger!! I definitely recommend their cookies to everyone! A few weeks ago I stopped by Dessert Lady again and picked up some soft oatmeal raisin cookies, please see below my photo with my Dessert Lady mug!
