Holiday Bakery Specials - Calgary
I love when bakeries have special offerings just for the holidays! Bliss & Co has special "Holiday Spice" and "Merry Mocha" cupcake flavors, cookie assortments & holiday cakes (Sacher Torte, Black Forest Cake, Red Velvet or Merry Mocha). Some things require 48 hours notice & they are taking orders until December 17th. More info on their website - http://www.blisscupcakes.com/
Aviv at Sidewalk Citizen Bakery has some Christmas Specials too (this is from memory as the email with info is not on this computer so forgive me if I get it wrong). He has Christmas Stollen available for delivery downton on Dec 22, 23 and pickup 24th. He will also have scones (3 types savory & 3 types sweet) and a Christmas sourdough for delivery at that time as well. His website is http://sidewalkcitizenbakery.com/ but it does not have this info up to date yet. You can drop him a line & get him to send you his latest bread email.
I am not affiliated with either place but I have been buying from Aviv & Sylvia/Justina for a while now & I love supporting local businesses with such friendly owners (oh and great food too!)
They are soooooo yummy. I have my email with me now so here's some more info:
Stollen - It is a festive, decadent, slice of pastry poetry and a true holiday indulgence. Each loaf has: Marzipan, creme patissiere, organic dried cherries, organic golden raisins, organic cranberries, home-made orange candied peel, spiced rum and cinnamon.

Savory Scones:Sheep Feta, roasted butternut squash and pumpkin seed/ Valbella turkey, old cheddar and rosemary/ Bacon, cheddar and nutmeg
$18 per half dozen.
I've joined Sidewalk Citizen Bakery's e-mail list. You are a wicked, wicked woman and totally responsible for my blood sugar spikes.
I went to Wildz Grainz today in Inglewood and noticed they had a special Christmas log dessert. Looked pretty good but I was focused on getting my croissant fix.
