Bliss & Co. Cupcakes Calgary

truthserum | Mar 8, 200909:02 PM     65

What started out as a hunt for coconut cocktail buns last week turned into the discovery of a new cupcake shop in Chinatown. Bliss & Co. Cupcakes and Desserts is downstairs at 108 - 3rd Ave. SW, just a bit west off of Center St. on the North side of 3rd Avenue.

We were looking for dessert for a potluck, and picked up a couple dozen in various flavors and they were definitely a hit. There were the usual chocolate and vanilla ones, with a variety of buttercream or creamcheese icings, but the other flavours really stood out. The coconut ones had coconut in the cake and the lemon one had a lemon cake. There was also a carrot cake cupcake, and a chocolate with orange icing that tasted like a creamsicle. They were all very moist as well.

Their price list also includes pies, cakes, and creampuffs made to order with 48 hours notice. The owners were both very friendly, and took the time to explain their various options. I think we'll try a chocolate cake with a caramel mousse filling for a staff birthday at the end of the month.

Just after we got Crave cupcakes in the deep south, I think we're back to going downtown again for Bliss.
