Spring has finally sprung, or so it seems. In between time spent in the kitchen this weekend, I tried my hardest to get outside and see some sunshine. I had a time consuming to-do list, but I managed to do some Toronto exploration, which was nice. The first order of business was the baby shower cupcakes (pictured above) they were SO much fun to make. I had a great time making the little baby face expressions and playing around with fondant. It took a few hours to get them all right, but on Sunday morning they were picked up for the shower, and I was told they were enjoyed by the momma-to-be.
My second task was a dozen cupcakes for my boss’ birthday (also pictured above!) She’s an avid cupcake lover, so I knew I couldn’t make something too plain… I opted for my recent-favourite, nutella filled chocolate cake topped with vanilla buttercream AND more chocolate cupcakes topped with milk chocolate frosting a thin layer of decorative and colourful fondant. I’d have to say these were an absolute pleasure to make. I love being creative and having the freedom to do what I please. I thrive best an environment where I’m free to craft something unique and special.
Aside from the fact I made 5 dozen cupcakes this past week, I’m very pleased with the recent weather. Saturday my boyfriend and I ventured up Yonge and did some grocery shopping and Sunday we headed up Queen west. I got some refreshing, but ridiculously overpriced, frozen yogurt at Blush Berry. My rationale for the over-priced yogurt: the upkeep on the fake grass outside the store… just kidding.. but seriously over $5 for a medium frozen yogurt with a few fresh strawberries and blueberries? Not quite justified. I see the value in desserts, that’s my life, but there wasn’t anything special about Blush Berry… Long live Yogen Fruz!
