The Grand Bakery, Ontario

The Grand Bakery in Paris, Ontario, is a custom cupcake company, and is also on Flickr and Twitter and while, like many of the bakeries we write about, we haven't tried their cupcakes, but they look delicious! If I ever win the lottery, I will travel around and try all the cupcake bakeries out there. Until then, we have photos for you.

I have had many of the cupcake flavours from The Grand Bakery! They are hands down the best cupcakes I have ever had. Nothing even comes close. I can even eat the flavors that I normally wouldn't eat if they were made into something else.

I am addicted. Mini's and regular sizes! I'm just glad they came up with the mini's so I can pace myself (or at least make myself think that).

Best cupcakes hands down! I've tried many of the flavors, and haven't run into one that I don't like yet. The only bad thing I can say about them is that you'll eventually run out and have to buy more.

Fantastic. No preservatives or trans-fat -- A clear winner.
