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 adore the quaint neighbourhood of Leslieville, with its treasure chest of foodie options! Accesible by streetcar and sandwiched between Riverside and Beaches in the east end of the city, Leslieville is an enclave that blends the trendy with the history and nostalgia of old town Toronto with its great restaurants, bakeries, cheese shops, and tea spots. We especially love the seasonal scramble at our favourite brunch spot, Table 17, on Queen Street East! There’s nothing better than having a weekend brunch with a bellini here at this establishment, where the staff is fabulous. We’re looking forward to our next visit where we might try some of their other brunch items, including cheese toasts, Neapolitan eggs, and their pain doré French toast. Table 17 has a great menu with a focus on local and seasonally fresh ingredients, and it’s well worth the trek out east from our studio in the west. They have a great Twitter and Facebook page, so follow, ‘Like’, and check out their site and menu here.
Drumroll, please! This year’s Eat to the Beat fundraising gala presented by Willow Breast Cancer Support Canada is taking place on October 18th and Le Dolci is a proud sponsor!

With 60 of Canada’s shining female chefs coming together to dish out a fabulous night of food and drink, the event is one of hope and inspiration as we continue the fight against breast cancer and all cancers. Proceeds from the gala go toward Willow’s free programs which provide support and information to all those affected by breast cancer. Join us, as we walk to the beat our own drum in making a difference, one step at a time.
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.
