Dufflet cakes at Loblaws (Yonge/YMills)

Was in the neighbourhood and popped into this Loblaws location (on Yonge, south of York Mills). It has changed since I was there last - a lot more upscale. You can't buy regular bread anymore and everything is packaged separately (much like in a Chinese bakery) in clear cellophane type packaging (buns, muffins, danishes - all wrapped separately). Only high end bread available such as Ace.

Nice selection of Dufflet cakes (not sure if the packaging is new or has always been like that). ISO a hazelnut cake (see my separate post), I picked up a hazelnut cakelet. It was the perfect size for two people. It was fresh and moist, bit too sweet for my taste (I find my taste buds finding everything too sweet; it must be the decrease of sugar in my diet, but I can't resist cake). There were layers of chocolate and hazelnut sponge cake with a hazelnut mousse filling. All covered in what I think was vanilla buttercream (very sweet) and dark chocolate ganache. I would have liked if they eliminated the vanilla butter cream layer).

Here are some pictures.

The cakelets are all $12.99. They also have the small round cakes; however, I didn't get a look at the prices.
