Woah, this weekend went by like a flash and I’m kinda stuck scratching my head wondering where it went. I meant to be way more productive and then only did about half of what I wanted to finish. The worst!!
I had a mission on Saturday to go and try a few of Toronto’s bakeries… I figured a few cupcake or other baked good tastings would be a good way to start thinking about our desert table for the wedding. Good idea, but terrible when actually attempted: Not only are Toronto’s “best” bakeries all across the city, but their samples fell totally flat. I guess I was expecting too much, so I’ll keep looking but seriously… It was a bit disappointing.
Other than that, well, the weekend went well. We started at Thor Espresso Bar on Saturday morning in hopes of trying out the famous Glory Hole Donuts we heard so much about (And read about on Baby Hedgehogs) We failed miserably by showing up a few minutes too late. We shared a cheddar scone to curve out appetite and the coffee was good – oh and the people working there are the nicest!
Little Fish is also the cutest place – we shared an amazing mac and cheese and a salad.
Jason and I grabbed a few cupcakes to try at Puseteri‘s on Sunday – they have Cheesecake Factory, Bake Desert Co, Dufflets, and others (and way easier than trekking across the city!) The Cheesecake Factory cupcake was the clear winner (we prefer moist for the cake and creamy for the icing, vs dry and fluffy…)
On our walk back, I grabbed a few extra bits for the bouquet I bought last week. And some roses, oh, and some succulents… couldn’t resist those. Jason was a trooper – I’m sure I spent 30 minutes going back and forth between 4 flower shops looking for the best buds.
I’ve been wanting to try this out for the longest time. So I did. Avocado, Cheese, and Toast. yumm
And finally, the skies were golden on Sunday night.
Hope you all had a nice weekend…!
