Dlish Cupcakes

March 6, 2013
The cupcake phenomena started in New York and it's building momentum in Canada. 
Dlish recently opened up a location in Yorkville (making it more easily accessible by subway!)

Coconut Macaroon
Coconut cake with light almond frosting and toasted coconut drizzled with belgian chocolate
The cupcake was nice: not too sweet or too weighed down with icing like Prairie Girl and the flavours were spot on.

Fresh strawberry cake with pure strawberry frosting
I really liked this cupcake - the strawberry icing was perfect without being overly sweet with the strawberries. The cake was great! I liked that they baked in strawberry slices to add texture and flavour. 

Clockwise from top left: Pistachio cupcake (x2), Mint Chocolate cupcake and Chocolate marshmallow
I liked the mint chocolate with dark chocolate cake and mint chocolate frosting. It was pretty tasty.
The chocolate marshmallow with dark chocolate cake filled with marshmallow creme topped with chocolate ganache looked really decadent and had a marshmallow inside which was pretty neat. 

I was really excited about the pistachio (I'm obsessed with pistachio desserts)
 pistachio cupcake
Moist pistachio cake with honey-vanilla frosting topped with toasted pistachio slivers. 
It followed the standard Dlish cupcake style of being not too sweet. I thought it was nice that they paired a sweeter and creamy vanilla frosting with the chunkier and crumbly pistachio cake. 

Overall: The cupcakes at Dlish are not very sweet and they have great balance as well as a variety of flavours.
