Show and Tell is wasted on elementary schoolers. Join several dozen bloggers weekly to show off an item, tell a story, and get the attention of the class. In other words, this is Show and Tell 2.0.
Last Sunday, I went to the library before going to Super C (frozen Ristorante pizzas were sold at 2.77$, a bargain and they’re my favorite). The library had called to say a book was ready for me and there were in fact three books for me and I ended taking out many others. Anywhoo. On the way to go to Super C, I stopeed at ItsyBitsy. I wanted a cupcake for my Show and Tell !
It’s a vanilla-coco cupcake. In the afternoon, all that was left were either vanilla cupcakes or chocolate ones. Since I give up chocolate for Lent, I couldn’t try the Smores cupcake or the chocolate-caramel cupcake. I asked them to decorate it so it would be pretty. They added pink sparkle and flowers.
ItsyBitsy is one of the few places in Montreal where they have those cute cupcakes. Unfortunately, I have not found any place that had THE most delicious cupcakes…except in Halifax. 🙂 It’s a bit far to get my sugar fix even if my friend works near the place and it would be great to spend time at Susie’s Shortbreads on break. In Montreal, the cupcakes I tasted were either dry, not sweet enough, or tasted like Duncan Hines which is the case of those cupcakes. Petits Gâteaux has the most beautiful cupcakes and the prettiest shop but they taste like box cake and box cake is great but not when it’s the taste of cupcakes that should be homemade and that cost near 3$ each.
I put my cupcake on this plate which was given to me by my mom when she came back from Paris last year. Porcelaine with a coquelicot drawing, the colors are striking and the design along the edge is delicate and feminine. I love that plate.
Now, go over at Mel’s to see what others are showing.
