Pretty cupcakes, and tasty too?

millygirl Oct 14, 2008 03:21 AM

I know it's been discussed before but I was looking for some up to date information. I've offered to bring cupcakes to a wedding shower and want really pretty girlie girl ones. I've looked at Eat My Words and they look beautiful and exactly like what I want but the price really is a bit high, considering I need about 2 dozen. Before I cave and order, anybody have another recommendation?? Thanks very much.

    Have you seen the cupcakes at Whole Foods? Not sure if the Toronto location has the same, but the Oakville location have the prettiest cupcakes! Look too pretty to eat (almost). The actually do look better than they taste though. The icing is beautifully done, but a little bland.

        I love cupcakes from both Yummy Stuff in Parkdale (http://yummystuff.ca/) and The Bake Sale on Bloor, between Islington and Royal York. Both places do custom orders. The red velvet cupcakes from Yummy Stuff are to die for (and they're pretty too!).

        If I recall correctly, both places charge about $2.50-$2.75 per cupcake, but they are probably cheaper if you buy a dozen.

          the cupcakes at whole foods are the worst I've ever tasted, imagine a stick of butter slathered on a brick

              I can second Eini. They are beautiful and really incredibly tasty.

                Thanks everyone!! Many of them look lovely, but I think I'm going to go withThe Cupcakery. They look special and very girlie girl. I've had the Kubo ones and wasn't blown away. Eini and Co. look nice but the Cupcakery seems extra special. Thanks dramarama. Actually I may also stop in and check Whole Foods beforehand. Again thanks everyone for the great tips. Love it!!!
