OMG Baked Goodness
Back in April, my friend Cailin from A White Picket Fence and I went on a mini-cupcake crawl to a couple of cupcakeries in Toronto. It was a wet and gloomy day but we didn't mind as we were in search for some awesome cupcakes. Our first stop was OMG Baked Goodness which is located on Dundas St. W. between Dufferin St. and Lansdowne, a very cute shop.
Now let me start off saying that I really don't enjoy vegan cupcakes and that's just what OMG is a vegan cupcake store that also sells tarts, sweet breads and other sweets. But we were there for the cupcakes, and I guess the cupcakes were good but nothing compared to regular eggs and dairy cupcakes. Cailin and I bought three different kinds of cupcakes.
So my review - the chocolate cupcake I had it was a good dense chocolate cupcake. The vanilla, cupcake tasted like a corn muffin. It was really lacking the sweetness you'd expect. The carrot we tried was really good, the spices were perfect and the cream cheese icing was not too dense, but it did taste like a muffin and not a cupcake (I have a major issue with textures of things!). Probably my biggest issue was that the icing had gone all hard, it was like they were sitting out for a long time and when we got there they had only been opened for one hour.
All in all, I wouldn't go back again but that's because I'm not vegan and I can eat regular cupcakes. If I was it would probably be my go to shop for vegan desserts.
