My one task for my wedding is to order the pastries for the late-night sweet table. Rather than eating at every pastry shop in Toronto I thought I would get recommendations first.
Thanks in advance.

    Try Schillings Exclusive on Danforth. ( see prior post; they have a dessert buffet.) Their things are not overloaded with butter or cream. Their things are for eating and not just for looking at. The frisees (?) (dried apricot or fig stuffed with almond paste) are a favourite with me and perfect after a meal.

    1. Dufflet does trays of mini mousses, mini cheesecakes, mini tiramisu, tarts, squares, cookies, etc. One of the best in Toronto

        I'd also suggest Rahier on Bayview (beautiful french pastries) and Desserts by Phipps on Eglinton (I know they bake wonderful wedding cakes and I think they will also do dessert platters). Enjoy.

        1. there are a few posts not far below (including one of my own) on Criveller's in Woodbridge.

          1. Try La Sem in North York. They baked my wedding cake and some of the sweets for the sweet table. The half sfolla(?) half strawberry sponge cake is to die for. Many guests commented on the fact that it was the best cake that they had ever eaten. It had my vote too.

            1. we had La Sem in mississauga, dixie/eglington. they did an assortment of pastries and a couple of cakes, delicious, and reasonable.

              1. Donald Duang is one of the best pastry chefs in the City. Go to his site and check out his work.

                I had the privilege of attending one of his courses many years ago. His knowledge of pastries and cooking in general left me awestruck, and I have been in the industry for years!

                1. Most of the suggestions below are for French style pastries.
                  An alternative is german style (black forest and more fruit based pastries). If you like these try Fabian's Konditorei on Markham Road, north of lawrence.
