I work for a high maintenance entertainment group and we get lots of interesting requests to accomodate different artists.

This morning, I received a last minute request for tomorrow night:

1. 400 mini cupcakes

2.GOOD fried chicken that can be picked up or delivered

I am having a hard time finding a bakery to accomodate the request for cupcakes, any advice would be super appreciated.

I am not sure who does good, fried chicken in the city. ANY suggestions are also super appreciated.

Thanks in Advance!

      Also at BakeSale on Bloor St (just a bit west of Royal York).

          Harlem is a good choice for fried chicken, although they douse it with a honeyish sauce that wouldn't travel well so that should go on the side. I always loved Cajun Corner's version when they were in Leslieville, not sure if the move to Laird has affected the taste but can't imagine it would.

            Try Sweet Escape Patisserie in the distillery for the cupcakes.
            Hands down, they make the best cupcakes in the city, and trust me, I have tried them all.

              What types of cupcakes are you looking for and where are you located?

                  I'm not kidding. Popeye's has a pretty solid fried chicken.

                    i was going to say.....

                    they can also likely most reliably pack it for you so that it remains nice and crisp. just stay away from any sides.

                    Dear CHers

                    Thank you so much for all your help.

                    Harlem is very accomodating and nice; they are just starting to do catering and were very happy to help.

                    Cupcakes on short notice wasn't possible for any bakeries suggested; most thought I was out of my mind for not giving them at least one week's notice. I ended up ordering from a catering company who outsources their baking...I hope they are good...
