CutiePie Cupcakes & Co. has been selling cupcakes since 2009 and has found a permanent home at the heart of downtown Toronto on Spadina Ave that opened earlier this summer. I had the pleasure of meeting the owner Melanie Abdilla, who is really sweet and kind.
One of the latest additions to their menu is The LattePie (12oz $6.00 / 160z $6.25) pictured below. This is the drink that drew my attention to this bakery shop and so did many others!
A cup of pastel colours created in front of me – cotton candy infused latte, topped with fluffy whipping cream, sprinkles, and a choice of whoopee pie! It’s no wonder they call it “The Unicorn Latte” as the nickname. The next few pictures shows the making of this espresso drink!
My favourite part of this drink is definitely the Whoopee Pie (I chose the Birthday Cake Brûlée flavour)! I found that the recipe for the cake part to be perfect and I loved the crunchy caramelized sugar piece with it. Absolutely delicious, and I was left craving for more.
And of course they sell a selection of cupcakes. Pictured above is the CutiePie (aka mini cupcake – $2.00) in Taro flavour. For those who don’t know me, I love desserts and I can tell you that their cupcake is very delicious. Their vanilla cake base reminds me of Prairie Girl and Bobbette and Belle.
There are some seatings inside the shop as well as an outdoor patio!
I have to say, the baked goods are on point and I want to come back to try the other goodies such as the new Unicorn Cone (pastel pink and blue swirl soft serve ice cream) and grab a dozen or two of the cupcakes and whoopee pies!
