Last week while wandering around Montreal with Lawman and Little B, I noticed a small cupcake shop on Rue St. Denis. Now the siren song of adorable cupcakes is mighty powerful, so I had to give it a closer look. Turns out the owner, Robert, had met our über-cupcake blogger pal, Nichelle. It truly is a small cupcake world after all...
Made with all natural ingredients--we're talking real butter and cream, the cupcakes at D Liche were light, moist and not terribly sweet (always a plus in my book). The minis were $1.50 each or 6 for $8, so of course we had to go for the six.
The carrot cupcake was awesome. Nicely spiced with little raisins.
The vanilla cupcake was mild and pleasant. Like a perfect party cake.
Even Lawman, who's generally a coconut avoider, loved this one. No fakey-fakey suntan lotion flavoring here. Yum.
The Red Velvet had a vanilla buttercream frosting instead of the traditional cream cheese. It was different than what I've come to expect in a Red Velvet, but a tasty gamble.
No need to adjust your monitor. This chocolate cupcake was made with 99%% cacao! Nom.
Two kinds of peanut butter + two kinds of chocolate = yes, please!
