We then participated in the 9th annual What’s On The Table, featuring Toronto’s most innovative restaurants and the best Niagara wines, with proceeds going to The Stop Community Food Centre’s critical anti-hunger programs. Martha Stewart enjoyed our menu so much at The Delicious Food Show we decided to treat all the foodies at What’s On The Table to the same delicious treats, including chocolate chai with madagascar vanilla roasted marshmallows, a variety of macaroons including our one-of-a-kind tea macaroons with Plucked Teas Spadina and Kensington tea blends, open faced cookie bombs - a Petite & Sweet custom dessert, and cake sandwiches. We even roasted the marshmallows on sight for our guests. Yumm! 

Guests got to meet Lynn Crawford, Jamie Oliver, and Carl Heinrich and sample delicious food from restaurants like Parts and Labour and Porzia

Over the weekend, Holt Renfrew hosted an amazing afternoon of music, shopping, sampling and art. Fans of Rebecca Minkoff got the chance to get their purses custom monogramed and nibble on our vanilla mini cupcakes, caramelized white chocolate macaroons and white chocolate truffles. We were so pleased to be part of such a great event!

Our Crazy Week in Review

Petite and Sweet just went through quite an eventful week and we are very excited to share the details!

Petite and Sweet was asked to design a cake for our favourite Canadian artist, Drake, for his 27th birthday held at Blowfish Restaurant this past Wednesday in Toronto. Well that’s no pressure!! After a lot of thinking, we decided to keep the cake classy and simple. For a man who has everything and sees everything, sometimes less is more. 

Take a look at the before and after shot of Drake’s birthday cake. Happy birthday Drake! We wonder what you wished for. ;)

On the same day we catered for BVtea, presenting fashions and bling from the merchant of Bayview Village. The proceeds of this event went to The Gerry & Nancy Pencer Brain Tumor Centre at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre. We’d like to give a special thank you to Stacey and Cele from Lounge Furniture Rentals for making us a part of such a beautiful event! 

If that wasn’t exciting enough, we then put together a breakfast for the queen of lifestyle herself, Martha Stewart at The Delicious Food Show!  She was so impressed with all our delicious treats that she asked our very own, Elle Daftarian, to help cut the amazing cake we designed especially for her. Take a look at how we brought the breakfast and our booth at the Delicious Food Show to life from start to finish below!

We shared our booth with Pluck Teas, our favourite tea brand! The favourite treat of the weekend was the lychee jasmine macaron, designed with Pluck Teas Spadina blend.

And finally, here’s Alex with the talented Chuck Hughes! We’re sure this was must have made her day!

Stay Sweet!

Eligible Magazine presents: Toronto’s Most Eligible Bachelor/Bachelorette Auction for SickKids

Last week, at a sexy & sweet pre-Valentines event to benefit Sick Kids Hospital, the Petite & Sweet team took part in Eligible Magazine’s Bachelor/Bachelorette auction, held at Arcadian Court & hosted by Bachelor Canada winner Brad Smith & his lovely fiancée, Bianka Kamber.

Catered by Oliver & `Bonacini , the night featured some of the most eligible single men and women Toronto has to offer, and also, some of the city’s tastiest gourmet treats!

As the exclusive dessert sponsor of this stylish event, we knew we had to make something memorable, so we created this one-of-a-kind custom sweet table to showcase what we offer, designed entirely in foamcore to replicate our very own Rosedale boutique. We kept the backdrop simple in our signature black & white so that the desserts and the amazing peacock floral installation (all done in eye-pleasing shades of deep purple, lavender and lilac) could stand out and shine before all the event’s guests.

A big thank you to everyone involved, for the night was a gorgeous success!

Porsche Design Twin Bag Launch - Toronto

Porsche Design Toronto recently unveiled the Luxury Brand’s First-Ever Women’s Handbag The TWIN BAG at an Exclusive Media Preview Party. Who did Porsche come to when they needed a replica of the Twin Bag turned into a delicous sweet treat?! You’r very own Petite & Sweet of course!

Valentine’s Day - LOVE IS SWEET LOVE IS MESSY

It`s almost that time of year again, as the first big holiday of the New Year draws upon us and February 14th quickly approaches, were once again surrounded by reclaimed images associated with this amorous day know as Valentin’es Day.  

For years, we have seen this holiday splattered with images of cupid, roses, romantic dinners, and most of all L.O.V.E - you know, that perfect love that everyone is searching for - the one that gives you butterflies in your tummy and makes you do crazy things. 

Well here at Petite & Sweet, we decided to be a little more realistic in our interpretation of Valentine`s Day. 

We decided to let out the messy part of LOVE by splattering red chocolate on our angelic white sweet table. Dressed with fluffy white cakes, delectable French macarons, mouth-watering cupcakes and gorgeous sugar cookies - just to name a few

You know the kind of love that`s not always perfect, Yes friends, LOVE is very sweet but also messy at times. Don`t you agree?

So no matter where your love stands this year, you can always be sure to add a little sugar with Petite & Sweet.
