Read into this what you will, but I’m in love with a honey ball. Specifically a honey ball the size of a timbit but oval shaped, dripping with syrup-y honey and dusted with cinnamon. Yep, that’s the one. Fresh out of the deep fryer, these tasty little morsels grabbed my heart by the taste buds and forced me to eat an undisclosed amount, although I will say it was a big enough number that I’ve felt the need to up the number of 10-minute trainer workouts this week in order to stay on track with the post-pregnancy weight-loss initiative. But enough about pesky exercise….now back to the balls.
Now let’s just get a few facts straight before we get started this week: Yes, I’ve been to several bars in my lifetime. Yes, I may still frequent bars from time to time. And yes, I may have even worked at a bar or two during my university days (tough to remember, details somewhat blurry). But I have never, ever, in my wildest dreams, been to….wait for it….a milk bar?! And more to the point, a milk and cookie bar!
I decided to pair this week’s bakery stop with a visit to my sister in Milton. I hadn’t been to a bakery in Milton before, and so resorted to a Google search to get me started. Turns out there are several bakeries in Milton, so it came down to a highly scientific decision-making method: Whichever website I liked best. Flourgirls looked pretty good, so Flourgirls it was! And their specialty? Cupcakes!!
While I have eaten many a late night meal in Toronto’s China Town (where the afterhours “tea” in the “teapot” may or may not have tasted remarkably like room temperature Labatt Blue;) I’ve never ventured into a China Town bakery. A quick social media search tells me Mashion is the freshest, tastiest and most modern place in town….although after also learning about Ding Dong Pastries just down the street….well, let’s just say they had me at Ding Dong, so two stops it is!
