A friend of mine recently asked me if I had heard of this new bakery place in Leslieville called Bobbette & Belle. I hadn't heard of it but within two minutes of devouring the website, I was dying to go! I could barley wait until Saturday came to go on an adventure to Leslieville to seek out this shop! Bobbette & Belle is an artisinal pastries shop specializing in fabulous cakes and macaroons. Not only is it a shop to make these cakes, but to design them as well. The cakes featured below are some of the prettiest I have ever seen - who doesn't want a wedding after looking at the possibilties that these girls can give you!

Sarah Bell and Allyson Meredith Bobbitt are the owners and creative minds behind Bobbette & Belle. The two of them have partnered together creating this luxurious shop, inspired by their longstanding love of the French Macaroon and the desire to make it more prominent in the Canadian market. Not only do the cakes look extremley delicious but the macaroons are top notch! Chewy and delicious, a real treat! I tried two different flavours:

Gianduja: Dark chocolate ganache with praline and roasted hazelnuts
Classic: Rich and creamy ganache made with a semi sweet chocolate

But other flavours offered include:
Passionfruit: White chocolate ganache with passionfruit puree
Pecan: Milk chocolate ganache with toasted pecans
Mocha: Espresso buttercream with a hint of chocolate
Caramel: Rich butter caramel with fleur de sel
Vanilla: Madagascar vanilla buttercream
Lime: Tangy lime buttercream with a hint of coconut
Raspberry: Tart raspberry and lemon buttercream

The shop is beyond cool, with a lounge area for cake&macaroon clients to wait to talk to the girls about what they want, and also a table area to talk business. The front station at the window is a cake makign station and a neat idea to have part of the food creating area front and center. The decor is flirty, simple, elegent and pastel-themed. Old china plates, interesting picture frames that house wooden spoons and spatulas line the walls, and the seating feels like you are at an old fashioned tea salon! Very girlie and very fun.

If you are looking to try out a delicious macaroon, find a wedding cake or a macaroon tower, Bobbette & Belle is the spot for you! They will customize the macaroon colour for your event and you can even order these macaroon towers - a great addition to a sweets table at a wedding, special event or even they suggest as an alternative to a traditional wedding cake.

If you are heading to Leslieville, this is a must visit spot!
