Has anyone tried Crazy For Cupcakes (www.montrealcupcakes.com)?

I need 2 dozen cupcakes this week and was going to take the Cocoa Locale route, until I realized that it's closed for the construction holiday. Plan B was Clever Cupcakes - but they are fully booked and cannot fill my order. I was referred to Crazy About Cupcakes (www.montrealcupcakes.com), but cannot seem to find any reviews. Does anyone care to chip in with their 2 cents? As long as it's comparable to either CL or Clever Cupcakes, I'll be a happy camper. Also, what is the best way to store cupcakes to maintain freshness? Airtight container in a fridge? Thank you in advance

      www.iheartcupcake.com is based in Montreal, not closed right now to my knowledge.

        Perfect, thanks! Looks like this will be the one!

    2. I tried ShiShi's dulce de leche cupcakes at last year's Cupcake Camp and they were fantastic:

        Thank you!!! Do you know if they deliver? I tried calling them but they're closed until Tues

          They were willing to make an exception for me and delivered my order for an extra $10 but this was a few months ago before they opened their shop. The vanilla minis I ordered were a bit dry but the limoncello and tiramisu cupcakes were moist. I'd try them again.

      2. Itsy Bitsy on Notre Dame. Worse case Chocola on Monkland, but only if youre stuck.

          Just checked out the Itsy Bitsy website, and they are unfortunately closed for the construction holiday as well. I will check out the other tw sources above before succumbing to Chocola ;)

          1. There's also Les Glaceurs in Old Montreal; they do special orders with delivery. I've never ordered any custom stuff from them, but have consistently found their cupcakes to be both beautiful AND tasty (both the icing and the cake taste good, and the icing is not too rich/greasy).

            1. I've tried many cupcake places in montreal. Here are a few that you havent tried:

              -Les Glaceurs in Old Montreal: really good! Their red velvet is the best i've had. http://www.lesglaceurs.ca/
              -Itsi Bitsi : they make tiny cupcakes that are quite fun, but the icing is a bit sweet for my taste http://www.itsi-bitsi.com/home.html
              -Petits Gateaux : they have some really funky flavors. Beautiful decor and tasty too. Ordered there last minute for a grad.

              EDIT: oops just saw that itsi bitsi are closed sorry

              1. UPDATE: Thank you to everyone for their recommendations. I have decided to go with I Heart Cupcakes. I will report back with my findings! :)

                1. I realize this is too late, but I just came across this local cupcake person, so thought to add it to the list for anyone else looking for ideas in the future. I don't have any personal experience with "Bake Sale Girl". I think I might have seen them at a past craft sale at the church on St. Viateur, though. Cupcakes are very pretty looking!

                  1. Did not enjoy the cupcakes from Crazy for Cupcakes - found them dry. So many better options in Montreal. Service there is not too friendly either. My favorite is Les Glaceurs.

                    1. i went to the cho'cola on Monkland last week kind of randomly. The boss lady was abrasively scolding an employee and I didn't feel too comfortable about that. Anyways, I bought 2 cupcake - cookies and cream and caramel. Their icing is a little rich for my taste and perhaps too plentiful. The cooking and cream cake was very good although a tad on the dry side. The caramel cupcake was moist, fresh and delicious. Usually these caramel cakes are way too sweet - like the one at Mamie Clafoutis but their caramel cupcake was great. I also got a bag of caramel popcorn. The caramel was very good but the popcorn was a bit over-done.
