Prepare to see some fabulous ‘taches being sported on men around the world because in just one week, men will be growing some hairy bits over their lip to promote awareness and raise funds for prostate cancer. On November 1st, Movember officially begins and guys can say goodbye to a squeaky-clean shaven face and raise money for moustache-growing efforts. At Le Dolci, Toronto’s fun, foodie studio, we are showing our support by not waxing our lady moustaches this month (ha, ha) and hosting a Movember cupcake class at Le Dolci, with a portion of class profits going to Movember.
Join us for this fabulously fun class where you are sure to leave with a box of sinfully delicious treats and a bit of creative time under your belt. We hear eating cupcakes makes your ‘tash grow faster.
Touting all natural ingredients, Le Dolci is a great place for young, old and in between to come and try their hand at creating an edible work of art.
Le Dolci’s Movember class is Saturday November 19th, 2011 from 1-3pm.

We’re starting a new series of blog posts here at Icing Sugar Towers entitled, “Things We Love” and it’s here that you’ll find everything that strikes our fancy: sweets, fashion, home decor, books, and much more! What we’re currently digging: foodie murder mysteries! The food murder mystery genre has really exploded within the past several years and we can’t get enough of Joanne Fluke’s Hannah Swensen mysteries because not only are the novels amazing reads, they have RECIPES in them! Cookies, cakes, pies, frostings, you name it. Reading has never been so delicious.
BOO! We know that some of you are already planning out your Halloween costumes, so we thought it would only be appropriate to post a little reminder about our upcoming Halloween themed classes for both yummy Cake Pops and Cupcakes. Our wonderful teacher Cat will be joining us again at the studio on October 29th to teach you how to make some frightful, yet delicious little Halloween treats for you and your friends to enjoy. Expect to get your hands a little dirty when making some fondant ghouls, jack-o-lanterns, black cats and bats to decorate your spoooooky cupcakes!
