Autumn Splendor

It certainly is looking like we're in for some beautiful weather this weekend which makes for a fabulous country drive. The colours are so rich and vibrant you'll think you're travelling through a picture postcard.

Our roofing job is taking longer than expected and so we are not open today and since Bill is still on the roof that leaves me to prep solo. That's okay. We will be open at our regular time tomorrow and hope we'll be seeing you!

Good-bye Summer

Good-bye summer, you crazy season
We'll miss you as autumn rolls in
May memories of sunshine and fun time with friends
Warm us until you come around again.

Summer Season Finale

Well, that concludes our summer season. It was certainly a busy one. As a matter of fact, this was our busiest summer so far and we are grateful to everyone The Little Tart a part of their summer, cottage country tradition. Thank you.

We are going to catch our breath and will open again on Friday September 5th with new fall hours.

We hope you had a wonderful summer and look forward to seeing you this fall!

Patty Cake - Inaccurate and Misleading

The Little Tart pastry shop
As promised in a previous post, here is my take on the seemingly innocent children's rhyme "Patty Cake" and why I believe it is inaccurate and misleading.

Patty cake, patty cake, baker man.

I'm already offended.

Bake me a cake as fast as you can.

Do you want it good? Or do you want it fast?
Because if you want it fast you can just mosey on down to the local grocery store and pick yourself up a package of Betty What-a-crock fake mix. Oh, and don't forget your plastic air tight container of oil based, preservative infused frosting. Nummy! (Buttercream my apple crumble.)

Where was I?

Roll it and pat it…

Hold on. Are we talking cake or pie here?

You roll and pat a pie.
You mix and pour a cake.
Mark it with a "B"

Script costs extra.

And put it in the oven for baby and me.

You should not feed baked goods to your baby. It's irresponsible and bad parenting.

Now. May I suggest my own original lyrics.

Make a pie.
Bake a pie.
Sweet delight!
Early in the morning,
'Til late at night.
Measure it.
Mix it.
All from scratch.

Num num,
Another bite
Down the hatch!

So Good You'll Goo Yourself

It happens in the parking lot.
It happens on the front deck.
It happens in the store.

You told us about it. We gave it a name.
