I used to find petits gâteaux and entremets very intimidating to make, mainly because of the amount of work required. To create all those layers and textures, it can take up to a few days to make just one cake. Once the sponge cake, fruit gelée, and other inserts (like mousse or fruit purée
I’ve always wanted to go on a Pâtisserie Crawl. Although the idea may sound fun, consuming so many sweet treats one after another is definitely not an easy task. Even for a pastry lover like myself, stuffing my face with endless macarons proved to be more difficult than I imagined. But I
Strawberry, lychee & raspberry shortcake. Mocha, chocolate & coconut macarons + fondant cookie. Bye bye Fonz! Pâtisserie La Cigogne, Rahier, La Bamboche and Ruelo. Green & pink lychee macarons. It’s funny how I bake macarons at least 3 times a week, but I’m still not sick of them.

This is probably my gabillionth time here at La Bamboche, but what can I say? If I keep coming back here, then it should tell you something (actually it should be screaming something by now since I’ve been constantly bombarding everyone with pictures of their yummy cakes!). I made a
Another visit to my all-time favourite patisserie, La Bamboche :) I ordered two macarons; chocolate and green tea mango, at $2.50 each. I also had a roast beef sandwich ($6.95) and a De Luxe au Caramel et Yuzu ($5.95). Thick pieces of roast beef piled on top of a half-inch thick of Brie, toppled
So I went back to Clafouti to try a different tart this time, and I had the Pear Almond Tart ($3.15). It didn’t have a strong pear taste, but I did like the texture. The taste is light although the tart itself is dense. I prefer their Lychee Caramel Tart :) After my volunteer information …
The Yonge/Mount Pleasant & Eglinton area has an abundance of yummy patisseries. My first stop was Jules Patisserie. It’s a very small place with dim lighting, but the smell of their pastries is beyond belief. I chose their Custard filled Croissant and Spinach & Goat Cheese Quiche.
