Monday night, I was invited along with a guest to preview desmond and beatrice’s holiday treats and what a preview it was. It was hosted at the fun and funky 2nd Floor Events on King St. The space was adorably decorated in the holiday spirit and although it’s usually too early for me to celebrate, the reindeer droppings quickly got me in the mood!
They had the cutest hot chocolate set up, with your own fixins! I love fixins! They even had junior mints (genius). I had so many marshmallows, it was barely hot chocolate anymore. I’m barely an adult.
It would be impossible to pick a favourite. The ones at the top of my list would be the reindeer droppings, a simple cookie with red and green sprinkles that actually tasted like Christmas. The cinnamon cupcake was amazing too, I thought it tasted exactly like a snickerdoodle but is often compared to the beavertail, both delicious though. And finally, the gingerbread cookie, it actually melts in your mouth.
Desmond & Beatrice is located in Leslieville but delivier throughout the city. Everything I tried would make great client, teacher or hostess gifts. Basically it’s perfect for anyone you want to give delicious to this Christmas season. They’re also perfect if you want to trick your guests into thinking you slaved away baking all day, I certainly won’t tell.
PS – I’d like to thank my guest (aka partner in crime aka PIC) for being great at instagram and letting me use them for this post.
