Prairie Girl Bakery, our local cupcakery!

Friday, February 17, 2012
You know a place is bound to be good when the lineup is out the door. It was also Valentine's Day so of course that had something to do with it. :)

My top two "beefs" with cupcakes in general are A) there is often not enough icing to go with the cake - I like the icing thick & B) that the cake can sometimes be a little dry - a moist cupcake with the right icing-to-cake ratio is crucial!

And I'm happy to report I think I've found cupcake ecstasy - where all my cupcake conditions are not just met, but exceeded - over at King / Victoria, just a short jaunt from our home. That's where you'll find our local cupcakery Prairie Girl Bakery (I believe there is also one in the First Canadian Place concourse BUT I heard a lady in line at our shop say the lineup there was three times longer since it was drawing in the work crowd, so keep in mind it'd be busier).

The chocolate cupcakes are made with dark cocoa - they were so rich and delicious. Mark especially loved them. We didn't get to try the chocolate cupcake with strawberry icing [they were out of all cupcakes with strawberry icing in fact - think it was due to Valentine's Day volume but I got there at about 11am and waited for 20-25 minutes in line, so I think the people ahead might have gotten their hands on some - CUPCAKE FIGHT TO THE DEATH! No. Well, I had to talk myself down LOL :)]

You can also select large or mini cupcakes, so if you only want a taste, try the minis. I'm sort of an "all or nothing" cupcake girl - I had to go big or go home!

Some are made with a butter icing, others with cream cheese icing - the most unique cupcake we had was peanut butter icing on a banana cupcake. I think it'd be better on a chocolate cupcake (the banana cupcake was a little drier than the vanilla and chocolate) but the peanut butter icing was TO DIE FOR!



If you've already tried each of their offerings, they also do a "treat of the week" - for Valentine's it was a cinnamon icing with cinnamon hearts on top on a golden vanilla cupcake.

Cupcake ecstasy will cost you $16.95 for half a dozen large cupcakes - but oh what a wonderful indulgence! It took Mark and I three glorious days to eat them.

Yours in food (and cupcakes, more specifically),
-Stacey

I've had their cupcakes and they are my favorite in the Toronto area. You are right on point when you say the peanut butter icing is to die for. The Chocolate Peanut Butter is my favorite by far with the Chcocolate Peppermint coming up pretty close. PGB's icing is perfect, not too sweet or too buttery and the cake, it's also perfect!

Hi Leesh! Oh yes, the Chocolate Peppermint is also delicious - I think I'm in agreement that that is my second favourite next to the PB icing! Now I'm craving another visit to PGB since there were a few other types I've not yet tried!

i walked by the location in 1st canadian on v-day and the line-up was INSANE! i've had vanilla on vanilla and peanut butter on banana. both delicious!

I really like the icing on Prairie Girl's treats but find the cake part a bit dry. Isn't it weird how there don't seem to be dozens of cupcake shops in Toronto? They're a welcome addition!

Mmm - those look amazing! I wish there was one near me. I guess that's what I get for not living downtown! Now I'm craving cupcakes!
