Here’s a riddle for you all: what’s purple, pink, and white all over with cupcakes so perfectly and adorably frosted they make your heart palpitate? Answer: Flour Studio on Eglinton West! The cupcakery tour continues on with yet another beautiful shop with delicious cupcakes, sweet treats, and – wait for this- cupcake trinkets! Now, I know full well that Flour Studio isn’t the only cupcake shop in the city that resembles a heavenly fairy land fraught with cupcake paraphernalia so cute you want to hyperventilate, but it makes me giddy just the same.
I’ve come across so many achingly cute and pretty cupcake and gift shops in Toronto over the years, with cupcake-related things up the wazoo! There are bake shops with an exclusive focus on cupcake desserts, places like Cards and Presents on Queen West and Blue Banana in Kensington Market that offer cupcake-related items, and shops such as Flour Studio and Lollicakes on Mount Pleasant (blog post forthcoming) which kind of fuse the two together, offering a very unique eating and shopping experience. Think delicious cupcakes alongside any or all of the following: cupcake jewelry boxes, stationery and notepads, lip balms, decorative toppers, candles, dishes, teapots, teacups, coasters, aprons, and so much more. I can’t imagine EVER becoming bored or indifferent to cupcake touring because each shop has its own identity and its own special feel. The shop names, the flavours, the storefront awnings and window displays – it’s a never-ending exploration quest in the best way possible! In my cupcake-loving world, these rank as some of my favourite places to shop and lose myself in.
I have my friend Alex from Vivid Memories to thank for this happy visit to Flour Studio (and consequently, many more Flour Studio visits to come!) as I found out about Flour Studio from her blog and her personal cupcake tour. Here’s a sneak peek of tomorrow’s super sweet cupcake post, complete with a new scrapbook layout!
Flour Studio is located at 883 Eglinton Ave. West, west of Bathurst St. They are closed on Mondays and Tuesdays (appointments are exceptional), and are open from 10am-6pm Wednesday-Saturday and from 1oam-3pm on Sundays.
