Be it Valentine’s Day, Easter, Halloween or Christmas, it seems every holiday comes accompanied by all manner of sweets and treats.
Some Burlington businesses enhance the holiday countdown by offering opportunities to create special desserts that celebrate the season.
With Valentine’s Day coming up, our weekend adventure saw us icing Valentine cookies at Mollycake one day and then crafting Valentine cupcakes at Fortinos the next.
Mollycake is a Burlington bakery specializing in custom celebration cakes that you can’t buy at the grocery store. Owner Christine makes fantastic cakes, party favours, sweets and gift baskets. She bakes everything from scratch and uses only the best ingredients like real butter, farm fresh eggs, top quality chocolate and Madagascar vanilla bean paste.
Mollycake regularly hosts tasty classes and events throughout the year. While our adventure was kid focused, Mollycake offers adult sessions too. For example, this Tuesday, Mollycake is offering a Girls Night Out cake decorating party with a “conversation hearts” theme. There are a few spots for this event still available.
Jr Burlington attended the Mollycake Junior Decorators event where kids were invited to demonstrate their artistic talents on three Valentine sugar cookies using icing and all the trimmings.
From birthdays & baby showers to weddings & Wednesdays, Christine promises to make your day sweeter. Mollycake is located in the Times Square complex on Upper Middle Road & Sutton Drive (between Appleby and Burloak).
The following morning brought us to the gorgeous new Fortinos at Appleby Line and Dundas Street. This “next generation” store opened in December 2011 as the pride of the Fortinos chain and a model for future stores to come.
The Fortinos Community Room hosts community groups, birthday parties, private get-togethers and cooking classes. Non-profit groups can use the room at no charge!
Community Room coordinator, Jane, was the host of the day’s cupcake decorating session enjoyed by over 20 kids from 6-10 years old. The Community Room is not just for kids though–it regularly hosts adult-only culinary classes and recently featured a Valentine’s chocolate class for adults called Tuxedo Junction.
When we signed up for the hour and a half program, we imagined a free-form session but Jane offered something much more. She came prepared with plans and fixings for six different creations including a pink coconut polar bear, a rose, a duck, a monster and two flowers.
While Jr Burlington decorated, we grabbed our weekly groceries and enjoyed a coffee in the large seating area that offers a diner-inspired look and free Wi-Fi.
At the end of the event, each child had a half dozen imaginative cupcakes to take home. Every child
