I have been a very bag blogger. I know, I've been MIA for over a month. I feel that my blog needs to take on a slight renovation. The reason I blog so infrequently is because I started off with a certain tone that is hard to maintain, especially if I don't always have something riveting to blog about. So, from now on, I think I am going to be a little more informal. Let me know what you think... preferences?
Over the winter break, I visited a quaint dessert patisserie in the west end of Toronto. To my delight, it was a very comfortable atmosphere... not too mainstream or pretentious. My new little discovery (which I told myself I'd blog about for forever and a day now) is called Dessert Trends. A fairly new establishment, it has been around since 2005, providing cake catering services in Vaughan on Weston road, and only recently opened their patisserie on Harbord street.
Upon walking in, you are greeted by a large, brightly lit display of the most beautiful cakes, conveniently sized for individual consumption. The majority of these scrumptious little delights run for a very affordable $6.50 per cake. The staff were all very friendly and eager to please--it wasn't until after I went home and checked out their website via co-founder Wayne G. O'Brien's business card that I realized that one of the staff who was waiting on us, was in fact the founder, Chef Don! How humble.
