Life is Sweet – A Cupcake House

Life is Sweet – A Cupcake House

After a beautiful Sunday morning OC1 (outrigger canoe) paddle session, We decided to hit the Toronto Beaches’ high street, Queen St. East for a morning coffee.  There’s a bakery that I’ve been following on Instagram for awhile and wanted to stop by and finally try it out but found out it was closed.  So taking a stroll down the street, we found Life is Sweet – A Cupcake House.  With its vibrant turquoise front porch, we decided to take a peak.  They’ve turned a house into a bakery and shop keeping the house structure in place.  In the hallway, staircase and back room are shelves and displays of beautiful housewares like dish towels, cake stands, homemade soaps and greeting cards.  When you walk in the front foyer, you’re greeted by a counter full of baked goodies.  There’s a lot to choose from and all looked delicious.  We ended up going with a half dozen mini-cupcakes, it is a cupcake house after all – and seeing that they are “mini” I felt less guilty eating them…lol.  My favourite was the earl grey tea cupcake which had a very subtle earl grey flavour however, it was contrasted with a bold and citrusy orange buttercream full of actual orange zest – a unique flavour combination I haven’t seen before.  I love neighbourhood joints like this, so happy I dropped in!
