Maya Angelou once wrote, "I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."
I bring this up because how does dessert make you feel, Toronto?
Once you leave it in the occasional indulgence category and not the everyday, you can ditch the guilt. We can all enjoy something laden with frosting or oozing with chocolate. Sorry, what was I saying?
One of the city's best known bakeries is Dufflet, which has become so ubiquitous with sweet teeth that they are now available in many grocery store freezer aisles. Don't sell yourself short: Toronto's "finest purveyor of pastry" is even more delightful the day of, with hand crafted creations from scratch that are suitable for birthday parties or portioned for one.
If you have some dietary restrictions, it certainly isn't too hard in Toronto to find your bakery. Through Being Cool has doughnuts so large and fluffy, they threaten to ruin all other doughnut shops. The fact that they are vegan is the least important thing about them: they are delicious. Bunners has gluten free cinnamon buns piled high with frosting and so sticky sweet you will be licking your fingers for hours.
You may refine your diet and grow an adult palate, but admit it, there will be always be some room for dessert.
