Geek Sweets & Her Majesty's Pie @ Kitsilano Farmer's Market

July 6, 2014

Geek Sweets

Red Velvet: Red velvet buttermilk cake w a dose of cocoa, topped w cream cheese frosting - 2

J's comment > not bad; moist cupcake; divine cream cheese frosting, light and fluffy although the flavor of cream cheese wasn't too strong... :(

Fat Elvis Cookie w peanut butter base & candied bacon pieces - 2

J's comment > slightly crunchy, more soft actually; pb flavor evident but not strong; candied bacon chewy

Lemon Blueberry Cronut - 1

J's comment > 
dense and chewy; also, the blueberry filling was just absorbed into the cronut pastry so there was no jelly filling as expected when you bite into this; lemon flavor present though;  a VERY far cry from the original cronut & Vancouver's frissant @ Swiss Bakery

Chocolate Hazelnut Cronut - 1

J's comment > dense and chewy; chocolate and hazelnut toppings were there to just look pretty, added absolutely nothing else to the cronut; a VERY far cry from the original cronut & Vancouver's frissant @ Swiss Bakery

Her Majesty's Pie

Chocolate Pecan Pie - 2

J's comment > a really strange combo of egg custard & chocolate (didn't really get the pecans thought you can see it); crust was excellent though, definitely a 2+ for just the pie crust, flaky and crisp, everything a crust should be; unfortunately the weird tasting filling got in the way of enjoying the crust
