YOU GOTTA GO TO BARQUE FOR BBQ!

That seems to be a not-uncommon sentiment about this restaurant as a whole.

Two orders with multiple beignets per order, not just two beignets.

YOU GOTTA GO TO BARQUE FOR BBQ!

Anyone familiar with the Dipamo's/Phil's Original saga will understand why I'm wondering if this place will last after the initial novelty of it in the neighborhood wears off; I'm convinced the high prices at the Englinton Dipamo's franchise location is what killed it off.

Paul and Sandy's is not in Mississauga, it's in Etobicoke on Dundas and it's about 2-3 blocks away from the Islington subway station on the Bloor line.

Manner Wafers

Reithers on Church St. in Toronto, International Food Depot on Jutland in Etobicoke, Starsky's on Dundas in Missisauga just on the other side of the 427. I too am a fan, I've scoped out all the places near me, Int. Food Depot and Starsky's have fairly extensive selections.

Baker's Margarine

My understanding is it has a higher melt-point than regular store margarine and can be used in place of shortening.

Gourmet Cupcakes?

It can't be a coincidence, we got two normal sized ones and two minis and they were all dry. If that isn't your normal experience there then someone was not on the ball (messed up the recipe, baked them too long, etc...) since I'm assuming they were baked at least yesterday and 30 hours old cupcakes should still not be that dry [assuming they're stored properly].

Gourmet Cupcakes?

Finally made it over to both For The Love Of Cake and Yummy Stuff. FTLOC was ok, the coconut one in particular was excellent. The regular chocolate one and the chocolate hazelnut one were just ok, but I wasn't that much impressed with the vanilla cupcake. They had no "Mancakes" available the day we were there so I didn't get to try any of the more exotic flavours they make.
All the hype about Yummy Stuff was completely lost on me. We had a raspberry, lemon, chocolate and a maple bacon. First of all, every single one of them (both the full size and the minis) were dry. Like, REALLY dry. Yeah, we got there near the end of the day so they'd obviously been sitting in the case for awhile, but I've had cupcakes from other places sitting around in my house for multiple days and they never became that dry. The raspberry one was the best out of all of them flavour-wise and was the least dry of all of them because it had raspberry puree on the inside.. The frosting on all of them (American frosting, not cooked buttercream) was a bit overly-sweet and it was dry enough that the outside of the frosting had developed a pretty hard skin. Now, for the maple bacon cupcake...it is probably the worst cupcake I have ever eaten from a "gourmet" cupcake shop. The frosting was very badly flavoured, tasting like neither bacon nor maple to me, it simply tasted like salt that had gone a bit off. The cupcake itself was actually pretty good, it was some type of oatmeal/cinnamon/chocolate thing that, on it's own, I actually enjoyed (I peeled the frosting off and chucked it). But the cupcake and frosting together was just overwhelmingly salty and really unpleasant, plus there were so many contrasting flavours going on it was a real collision instead of what was likely intended to be a fusion.

Out of the two, I'd say For The Love Of Cake was the better of them.

Multiple places at St. Lawrence market carry them (one of which is European Meats which also carry them at their Etobicoke location).

Cupcakes with DIY toppings?

As a gift for our friends' daughter we put together a selection of sprinkles and things for her to top her own desserts (in her particular case it was ice cream, not cupcakes). I can understand the appeal to children, the act of creating their own dessert is such fun for them. I really do think there's room in this city for custom-topped cupcakes, maybe someone (maybe you?) will do it. Another suggestion would be to call ahead to a bakery that has seating and tell them you'd like to show up with toppings and let the kids do it there in the store, someone might be willing.

Cupcakes with DIY toppings?

I had this same conversation with someone else recently. Although there's no store that I or anyone I know is aware of that does this, it's not much of a stretch to just go to Bulk Barn, buy some sprinkles and whatnot and top them yourselves at home after buying some plain ones from your favorite spot.

Where Can I find Mozartkugel Choclate From Austria?

That'd depend on which ones you're buying. The most common commercially produced ones in Austria are made by a company called Mirabell. If you get those here it's likely the exact same thing you'd get in most stores in Austria. See the link for more specific information:

Been there several times, the desserts are decent and everything seems to be prepared far better than at Cafe' Demetri. It's also far nicer inside than Demetri.

Chipotle Mexican Grill

Tried BB, wasn't remotely impressed with the steak which was tough, sinewy and literally without any flavor whatsoever (that fact was masked by the unbelievable overage of cheese they put in their burritos, was suspicious so I pulled some meat out and tasted it on its own). Contrast that with Chipotle where they actually simmer their beef in spices. I'll gladly eat at Chipotles, you won't catch me going back to Burrito Boyz unless they figure out Mexican food is all about the stewed, seasoned meats.
