For the past five years Yummy Stuff, specializing in custom cakes and decorated cookies, has been a popular online store and commercial bakery. Through word of mouth, business built well and the bakery supplied a wide-variety of companies and weddings tasty baked-goods.
As of last month, the tasty treats are now a short walk away for the residents of Parkdale as Yummy Stuff opened their first store on Queen St. West.
Yummy Stuff will satisfy any sweet tooth. On any given day you will find a wide variety of cookies, cakes, cupcakes, tarts and squares and if you are lucky you may even find scones, banana bread and other breakfast breads. Cookie decorating kits are also available if you want to try your own creative designs at home.
The store is bright colorful thanks to a massive front window filled with treats to catch passersby's eyes. There are no tables or chairs inside, something I would love to see in the future (especially if they added coffee and tea to the menu). The shelves along the walls seemed a little sparse in terms of stock, but it seemed like a natural growing pain in figuring out what is needed in the first few weeks of opening. Fortunately though the display case in the front of the store was full of cookies, pies and cupcakes ready to eat and whet any appetite.
The treats look fantastic and you can tell there is an attention to detail in every design. There are fantastic photos on their web page that show what they could do, but even more impressive to see them in person.
There are a lot of great places to get baked treats in the neighborhood but it is clear that Yummy Stuff is along the caliber of The Queen of Tarts, one of the finest bakeries in the city.
