      I know - most recently, I keep seeing Eini & Co. around too! My co-worker was a lucky girl and rec'd a VERY BEAUTIFUL basket of Eini & Co. cupcakes from her boyfriend today... Let's just say we were all so jealous!

      And then another friend of mine sent me this Valentine's Day promo they're having. Gonna somehow hint get this promo to my boyfriend ~ rather get these beautiful floral cupcakes of art than for him to spend $100+ on over-priced roses!

        Could you let us know what she thought of the flavour and consistency?
        Also, how large are they?
        I am not a frosting flower person and so was disappointed that they all come with a flower on them.... but as a gift I'd consider them.

        1. re: kattz

          If you find out the info on the promo, do post it. Hmmm maybe I should start giving hints myself...

            My coworker also recieved these cupcakes as a gift. From a female perspective, they are adorable and would make a great gift! He recieved the mini cupcakes with the little candy decoration on top (the mini cupcakes do not have flowers on them, but little candy creatures). When compared with the ones from the Cupcake Shoppe on Yonge Street, the flavours are better and the consistency is pretty much the same. The mini cupcakes are really small for the non-promo price ($2 each I think). Probably about 5 cm in diameter, if I recall correctly.

        1. So for V-Day I was sent 9 of these - a combo of vanilla and chocolate cake with coffee icing. Amazing, the buttercream icing was creamy bu not over the top sweet. Not an everyday kind of thing(ok the chocolate ones I could have..) but really very divine as a gift. The flowers that I got were gumpaste and looked really quite realistic.

            Could you tell if it was a cooked/meringue buttercream or an uncooked buttercream?

            1. re: Full tummy

              It was not a typical icing - very very light and creamy (not the usual icing thick and heavy texture - more like a very light creamy italian marscapone) and it noted that they need to be refrigerated.

              Hopefully that helps...

          2. Has anyone been to the new cucake store on mount pleasant? lollicakes.
            I believe they used to be an online-only as well, must have just opened the storefront very recently.

              I've been; they're non-dairy, which means the frosting must be made of vegetable oil shortening, I assume. Given this, they are tasty. And also pricey.

                Drove by today in anticipation of trying them out, but they were closed for some reason (arghhh!!)

                so instead we went to Life is Sweet on Queen East.
                Fantastic little shop, with such nice people. Picked up a half a dozen pack for friends with the usual popular flavours of chocolate mint, earl grey, lemon, strawberry...
                They were very popular.

                also picked up 9 of their mini cupcakes to try tomorrow.
                From what I've tasted so far, I'd definitely go back. Frosting is as it should be. All cakes were soft,
                lemon cupcake had a very lemon meringue taste.
