Try a fresh lemon Bundt cake or individual berry tarts at a bridal shower, afternoon tea party or Mother’s Day dinner. Allyson Bobbitt, an award-winning cake designer, and Sarah Bell, an acclaimed pastry chef, opened up their French-inspired bakery Bobbette & Belle in Toronto’s trendy Leslieville area in 2010. Since then, they’ve wowed the area with their artisanal pastries, colourful cupcakes and wedding cakes. These simple recipes are easy enough for novice bakers, and impressive enough for the most discerning moms.
