Cakestar Bakery

CakeStar Bakery
3431 Lake Shore Blvd W, Toronto

It's no secret that I like to bake...just take a look at this blog and it's easy to see. I admire bakers, they are artists and scientists rolled into one. To me, they are rock stars and two of my favouites have finally opened up their own bakery.

Last month, I was excited to go to the opening of CakeStar in Etobicoke. The bakery is owned and run by sisters Barbara Accogli and Monja Chiaravalloti (aka @CakeStarGirlz on twitter). Barbara is the baking goddess and Monja is the decorating artist. Together they create delicious cake magic.

From the simplest cupcake, to cake pops to custom cakes that are works of art, these ladies do it all and they do it amazingly. At the opening, the Barbara & Monja let us try our hand at decorating cannoli, red velvet cake pops and rum balls. They have an easy instructing style and everyone had fun. I am really looking forward to is attending their decorating classes. My first one starts in November and I can't wait to show you what I've stay tuned!

In the meantime you can find Cakestar Bakery at 3431 Lakeshore Blvd., Etobicoke, ON (at Kipling) and online here.

Enjoy some more photos from the opening.
