Crazy for Cupcakes!

photoI got up Wednesday morning and decided I needed to take another subway ride down to the John Street Market. I’ve been enjoying helping out my buddy sell his produce and this week I was promised sunflowers from his farm “Fiddlehead Farm!” I know they keep getting plugged by me! Well it’s worth the plug!  Well this week I came across something else to go crazy for “Cupcakes!”

When I visited New York City a few years back, mental note to self, must plan another trip soon. I had the chance to visit Magnolia Bakery. Of course made famous by the hit series “Sex & the City” I had never tasted such fabulous cupcakes, until now!!

I stopped by another wonderful booth at this up and coming trendy little market.  The business was called “Have a Cupcake”. It could have been called have another cupcake because there is no way you can only have one.DSC05319

I love people who own their own business’s because they are people, people. They love to chat and get to know you. What brings you by? How’s your Summer going? it’s humane and wonderful. That real personal touch that corporate business loses along the way.  Not always of course but most of the time in my experience.

I decided to try out one of her cupcakes. Outstanding! Oh my god so outstanding. Your probably saying “Who, cares? It’s just a cupcake.” No not just a cupcake! A fabulous melt in your mouth “Cupcake” A “I am proud t live in Toronto” “Cupcake” A ” Pass me just one more “Cupcake” A “You have to try these immediately kinda “Cupcakes” So good!

I asked her if I could write a little something about her cups, and she eagerly accepted the offer. Then I got a freebie!!! Mmmm so good! she seemed a little shy when I asked to take a photo but I explained it was for a little series of mine called “Breath of a Dream” Where I share the story of an entrepreneur’s dream come reality.

I felt bad because I kept all the cupcakes to myself and didn’t even share them with my buddy! I am a horrible cupcake hoar. I know he reads my blog so all I have to say is I owe you a cupcake!! 🙂

She has a really cute website which I will add to my blogroll. I love meeting kool people and meeting her was truly “Kool” she has a lot of heart. Something I am sure goes into every single cupcake she creates! All the best, Rashel!!

PS: I’ll be sure to be in touch to order me some more!

About Bruce in the City

I have been writing my blog since 2010. I was inspired to do so after enjoying an amazing meal with some friends of mine here in Toronto. I decided to tell everyone about my great night and the fabulous restaurant I went to and shazam my blog was born!
