dufflet, what is THAT on your head?

Maybe not as classic an image as Dufflet Rosenberg's "cake head" photo by Jim Allen (yes, that's a real Triple Chocolate Mousse Cake up there), but I'm going to post this anyway.

Dufflet was at a dinner party this weekend for for a friend's Canadian citizenship party. Everyone wore 'elton john' glasses and different animal hats - because that's how us Canadians like to celebrate!

Asides from the hat-envy I feel, I really wish I'd been invited as Dufflet made a special dessert for the occasion, a maple budino and apple caramel tart. Now that's totes Canadian!

do not be alarmed!

On Saturday night, before you go to bed, remember to set your clocks ahead one hour! When you get up on Sunday, it will say 10am, but it will feel like 9am. That's ok, you'll get over it.

Here to remind you to set your clocks this weekend is our Dufflet Black + White Layer Cake.

Rich and moist alternating layers of chocolate and vanilla cake, frosted with vanilla buttercream, and unintentionally decorated to look like a clock.

Sizes 9", 6" available at all 3 Dufflet cafe locations.

It's always a good time for cake, right?

...But if you eat one of our Irish Cream Cheesecakes, you may feel rainbows inside you! Available in large, small and mini, these dreamy Irish Cream's are here only until St. Patrick's Day, so gobble up a rainbow before it goes away!

george brown students eat more cake

That's my headline and I'm sticking to it. 

Actually, the truth is our Queen West cafe had a visit from Sarah and Martha from George Brown's Bakery and Pastry Arts program who are making a sweep of the area to see out how bakeries and cafes market themselves with branded packaging and such. 

On the table, inside the cheery green Dufflet box, sits a Hazelnut Cakelet® as a reward for their due diligence. All study should be this sweet!
