Royal Wedding Treats

The National Post, May 14th, 2018

Here at Le Dolci we love to take advantage of any opportunity to pretend we are royalty, so the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle was no exception. Especially considering our head queen Lisa meet Queen Elizabeth during a private luncheon in 2003, and GM extraordinaire Danie once presented Princess Anne with flowers during a grade school visit.

We decided to take our British connection to the next level by providing custom Harry and Meghan cupcakes and cakes for the city of Toronto. We even created a brand new flavour, lemon elderflower, to match Meghan’s cake. Check out some of the media outlets we were featured on below, including Lisa and Danie sporting gorgeous pieces by David Dunkley Fine Millinery and The Loved One.

Oh The Places You’ll Go

We can’t believe it, but the ultimate sweet tooth is married! Longtime Le Dolci customer Drew Scott from HGTV’s Property Brothers married the beautiful Linda Phan on May 12th in Puglia, Italy. Inspired by the nuptials, House Beautiful took us on a throwback back to when Drew popped the question, with the help of Le Dolci.

You guys know how much we love the Property Brothers, so we were thrilled when Drew came to Le Dolci in December 2016 to help plan the perfect proposal cake for his then girlfriend now fiance. Dr. Seuss is Linda’s favourite, so Drew knew he wanted something whimsical and delicious to pop the big question. Cue Le Dolci and our team of fabulous bakers who helped bring his vision to life.

This cake for Drew was inspired by Linda’s love for the beloved children’s book ‘Oh, the Places You’ll Go’, as well as their globe-trotting adventures together. Our four-tier creation was carefully handcrafted to represent all the wonderful quirks of Dr. Seuss, as well as represent the love between Drew and Linda. The adorable cake topper also acted as ring bearer as the cake was wheeled out to Linda, with a 1.2-carat round-cut solitaire diamond in a swirl setting, Drew’s own design.

We are thrilled for one of our favourite couples and can’t wait for many more baking adventures in the future! Congratulations to the new Mr. & Mrs. Scott.

The Symes Grand Opening

Check it out! We were honoured to be part of The Symes Grand Opening, and it looks like they enjoyed having us there!

The only thing better than an amazing food experience is an amazing place to enjoy
it in. This week a fabulous new event space opened up in the city, and we were so
excited to be a part of the launch event.
The Symes, a historic building that has been lovingly restored to its Art Deco
glamour is now open to the public. Located in the Junction, the Symes will be the
perfect place for your wedding, milestone celebration, or company event.
Guests were treated to a sampling of best food Toronto has to offer, and we
provided the sweet finish with one of our favourite treats: cannolis! We even
brought in the mother of all cannolis for an extra bit of dazzle.

Take a look at the blog below for more details. Thanks Guys!
