Hot off the press: Yummy Stuff’s new website!

I’m so excited to finally share this happy news with you all: Yummy Stuff‘s brand spankin’ new website went live yesterday and yours truly, Deb of Ate by Ate, has FIVE of her photos featured on it!  I’m so happy and ecstatic!!!  This has been in the works for over a month now and I’ve been on pins and needles wondering which photos Morag and her team chose to use on the site and I got the happy news in my inbox yesterday to go check it out because it was up and live and running!  I feel so incredibly honoured to be on their site representing even just a fraction of all the delicious and yummy cupcakes, cakes, decorated sugar cookies and sweets that they offer in their shop and I am just on cloud nine right now knowing they liked my stuff enough to want to use it.

You’ll find the majority of the photos in Yummy Stuff’s “About Us” page as well as on their “Bakery” page – hurray to the max for the gorgeous red scalloped dish that I love so much!  I took some screen caps of the pages featuring some of the photos they decided to use and a screen cap of their “In the News” page where Ate by Ate proudly sits in their 4th square!  This is a really happy, smiley moment for me and I want to thank all of you for always supporting me and being my inspiration for Ate by Ate – it wouldn’t be fun or worth it otherwise.

Sugar & Sprinkles – Cupcakes, Baked Treats, and The Sweet Things in Life at Desmond & Beatrice, Part I

Good evening ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to Ate by Ate’s first tribute to what I call, “The Introduction to Cupcake Central in Toronto”, also known as Queen Street East.  Oh yes, there is a cupcake district in Toronto.  There are 7, count ’em, SEVEN spots to stuff our faces with cupcakes on Queen Street East: Desmond & Beatrice, Bobbette & Belle, It’s the Icing on the Cake!, Sweet Bliss Baking Company, Altitude Baking, Yoshi’s Sweets, and Life is Sweet.  And I am going to sweep my way through them if it’s the last thing I do!  Even though I’ve known about the magical land of cupcakes that is Queen Street East for what feels like forever, it has taken me months (well, actually, who am I kidding – it’s taken me over a year) to get my sweet teeth to the concentrated district of frosting and sprinkles and while I wished my fairy wings had landed here sooner, this first cupcake experience at Desmond & Beatrice was well worth the wait. 

I have been on Queen Street East – in the Beaches, in Leslieville, in Riverside – numerous times, but cupcakes have always evaded me for one reason or another.  I ate a cupcake somewhere else earlier in the day.  I was too full from brunch or lunch.  I opted for a shortbread cookie and macaron from Bobbette & Belle during my first Christmas visit to the classy sweets boutique.  Blah blah blah.  Two weeks ago, I made it my mission to get myself a cupcake from Queen Street East, specifically from Desmond & Beatrice, and to enjoy every sweet cake crumb morsel and lick of frosting.  NO MORE EXCUSES.  And so begins our sweet and delicious journey on Queen Street East.  This is the photo spotlight Part I post of II – enjoy the photos!
