Monday has come again. I've sure started looking forward to Mondays, when I get to share with you another amazing local business. I hope you have as much fun reading about them as I do writing about them.
Today I bring you a special treat, FROSTED "because life should be SWEET"! Located in Elkwater, Ab, Toni Quincey, creator and owner of Frosted, creates her whimsical, fun, bold, and absolutely DELICIOUS cakes and cupcakes! I can say, without a shadow of a doubt, that these creations not only look amazing, they taste amazing too. Before I was gluten intolerant I'd had my fair share of these decadent desserts. They appeal to, and satisfy I might add, the sweet tooth in us all.
For those of you in the Medicine Hat area, you may remember Frosted from the Medicine Hat Farmers Market last year. Toni had her regulars who would stop by just to say hi and always left with some sort of goodie in hand. One just couldn't resist! I was just recently pregnant at the time and would hang out with Toni at the market, with a pan of her homemade cinnamon buns (and not normal sized cinnamon buns….GINORMOUS cinnamon buns) sitting on my lap while I ate them, right out of the container. Oh they were a pregnant woman's dream come true! Buttery, soft, sweet, and absolutely perfect (excuse me while I clean the drool off my keyboard). You're missing out until you've tried one of those cinnamon buns. But I digress….
Ok, back to cakes and cupcakes. Toni is exceptional in the kitchen, working her craft. She effortlessly manoeuvres around her work space, chatting and laughing while she "whips up" her soft, fluffy cakes from scratch. Without missing a beat she juggles, what seems to be, a thousand different tasks all at the same time. Mixing her own fondant from scratch, mixing her own batters from scratch, mixing her own frostings from scratch, building, sculpting, covering, decorating, frosting, and next thing you know, voila! You have this marvellous masterpiece sitting in front of you! And Toni never seems to break a sweat. She's so relaxed and laid back and completely comfortable in her environment, that you immediately feel likewise while watching her bake and create. Maybe it's her Feng Shui, I don't know, but whatever it is, it's like watching magic happen. I never tire of watching Toni in the kitchen. Is that creepy?
How is Toni so good at what she does? Well, she
"Now it is just pure joy seeing people's faces when they see their cakes. The bright colors, and designs. Once I finish one, I can't wait for the next one to start!" - Toni Quincey
