Cheap Eat of the Week: the cupcakes from Desmond & Beatrice

’Tis the season.. for birthday parties, engagement parties, friends’ bachelorette parties and soon to come, holiday parties. Sure, you could be that friend who brings the veggies and dip or gluten, organic, dairy-free something or the other.
Or, you could head down to Queen East for a stop at Desmond & Beatrice and be the unspoken hero and talk of the party with some of their perfectly frosted, impeccably sprinkled and deliciously flavoured cupcakes like chocolate vanilla, mint chocolate, strawberry cheesecake or salted caramel. Get six cupcakes for $16 or a dozen for $29. And if you really must, they also do vegan cookies and brownies.
