REVIEW: Mlle Cupcake

If you want to be a hit at your next family or friendly get together, cupcakes are IT. Here are my two favourite locations in Quebec City to serve your cupcake desires. BEWARE, pictures might induce salivation.

Mlle Cupcake

Mlle Cupcake’s big cupcake for special occasions.

The first all-cupcake bakery to open in Quebec City is Mlle Cupcake.  She touched my heart the second I bit into her creations; or was that my sweet tooth she touched…

Located in Sillery, on the corner of St-Michel and de Bergeville, Mlle offers a variety of flavours in an all nut/peanut-free environment. This alone wins my heart. Have I mentioned no artificial colours or flavours? Done. OH! and you can get gluten free too, you just have to ask. Talk about caring for your customers…

The best way to take advantage of Mlle Cupcakes’ baked goodies is to note the daily flavour from her website, because not all cupcakes are baked everyday. This way, you are certain to have it fresh out of the oven. Cupcake wise, it does not get better than this.

Thursdays and Saturdays are my favourite days; Key lime and vanilla/home-made sugar creme fondant. I am unable to eat a full cupcake at once, because the sugar rush is too intense (and coming from a sugar-addict like myself, its noteworthy!), and so I make two portions with each cupcake. But, sometimes, in the greyest of days, when Bridget Jones’ Diary is playing, I’ll have a whole cupcake to myself. WILD!

Sillery: 1660, de Bergeville, Quebec, Quebec. G1S 1J1

Loukoum Cupcake ** NOW CLOSED

When my need for creative diversity and culinary

experimentation strikes, young pastry artist Ariel Pinsonneault’s Loukoum Cupcake is where I go.

Ariel offers a variety of unique flavours that blend together perfectly. My favourites: La québécoise (blueberry, crème fraiche and fir!) and Framboiselle (raspberry, white chocolate and lemongrass).

And she makes so many tastefully looking mini cupcakes…fireworks of flavour! Cake pops too! I dare you to even try creating your own cupcake. The best EVER activity for kids, that is if you want to be the best mom in town. :)

Loukoum has now opened a second store in Limoilou. Depending on where you are in the city, check out the website for complete details and varieties they offer.

      Jenny, I have. Unfortunately, every time I have been (5 times) the cupcakes where not fresh and the toppings way too dry and sweet. I feel like the cupcakes, as well as the recipes are stolen and directly copied (without success) from two of the best cupcake offers in town: Loukoum and Mlle.
