I usually manage to get my Sundays off, the restaurant is open 7 days a week so its not always a guarantee. Today was beautiful outside so I grabbed a much needed pedicure then me and my hunnie went to check out a bakery I’ve been trying to get to for a couple months now; OMG Baked Goodness in Dundas West. They close at 5 on Sundays and being that we didn’t get going until 4:30 I called ahead and talked to Lesley, she said no problem she’d be around for a bit still so we were on our way.
Lesley was awesome, we chatted about the ups and down of opening her own bakery (its something I may do in the future so I was curious) she gave me a tour, met the staff, sampled her mini vegan cupcakes (any vegans reading this will want to be ordering these by the dozens, I promise) I ordered a small sample of things to go; a beautifully, buttery turnover, a wonderful, best I’ve ever had butter tart (and I take my butter tarts VERY seriously) and finally a perfectly executed chocolate lavender tart. Next time I’ll be smarter and order more than one of everything, (perhaps half a dozen butter tarts?) her prices are certainly reasonable enough to be doing so! Props to you Lesley, thank you for taking the time to chat with a young budding little pastry chef.
