Will you be my Valentine?
Cupcakes are now seen as passé, with macarons having moved into the spotlight recently. But how could a pint-sized cake topped with a dreamy icing, be considered passé? After tasting Dolce et Gateaux’s cupcakes, I declare cupcakes back in style. The cake itself is what stood out to me. Perfectly light and fluffy- it could stand on its own. But of course it is iced with a creamy and buttery frosting that is smooth and not too sweet.
With Valentine’s day just around the corner, I am sure tons of you are scramming to have something delivered to your loved one at work or at home, and I have just the thing. Dolce et Gateaux has created a beautiful bouquet made up of…….wait for it………red velvet cupcakes. What’s better than a bouquet of roses that you can eat? (Seriously…let me know if you think of anything.) And if you’re looking to make a little less of a statement, the boutique also has a large variety of v-day themed cupcakes as well as XO shaped sugar cookies.
Fresh and Delivered to your Door
Unlike some other cupcake shops in the city, this one delivers (anywhere for a price). Just call and inquire to see how much it would cost to deliver to your area!
Most importantly in my books, their cupcakes are freshly baked DAILY. No cupcakes on display are form the previous day. Every evening, leftovers are brought to the nearby mission.

If you’re hosting a bridal shower, baby shower, birthday party, or wedding, they also have incredible cakes and specialty cupcakes. We were shown an album full of impressively decorated baked goods for a wide-range of events. Contact them with your ideas…they can make them happen.
In the springtime, Dolce et Gateaux starts serving their homemade Gelato. They have tons of flavours and use only natural ingredients. Spring/summer can’t come soon enough….
The boutique itself is adorable. It’s a great place to go grab a latte and a cupcake, and catch up with friends. Check out their boutique and café on Bernard, or grab some cupcakes to go at their location downtown. Check out their website for more deets!
Mind, Taste, Love.
