A Little Sweet Treat for Father's Day

Are you a dad?
Do you have a dad?
Do you know a dad?
Do you know someone who's going to be a dad?
Do you need to tell someone they're going to be a dad?
Have you ever used the term "daddy-o"?
Have you ever referred to someone as "Big Daddy"?

Answer yes to any of these questions and it sounds like you'll be looking for something special for someone special this Father's Day weekend!

How about a little sweet treat?

Have a wonderful day!

Red is Retiring

Red 'rollin' the dough' Rolling Pin

We have some bittersweet news as we approach our summer season. A valued member of our team will not be continuing this journey with us. After nine complete seasons our ever diligent Red 'rollin' the dough' Rolling pin is retiring.

It seems like only yesterday when good old Red rolled its first tray of tart shells. Every tart up to this season was rolled by Red, arguably the hardest working rolling pin we've ever encountered.

We thank Red for 9 wonderful years of loyal service. You'll be missed.

But seriously it is just a rolling pin. We bought another one. I like it much better.

It's Friday and we are OPEN!

Victoria Day Long Weekend

Good morning!

It has been a busy week here prepping for the first long weekend of the season!

I just wanted to post a reminder of our hours. We are open tomorrow and holiday Monday.

If you do plan on joining us here in cottage country this weekend - head's up - you'll need your bug jacket. The itty bitty bitey buggy boos are back! Let's hope for a good, hot dry spell to shorten their stay.

Well, I'm off to join Bill in the kitchen!

If you are in the highlands this VictoriaDay long weekend we hope you'll drop by. If not, we hope, wherever you are, you have a fabulous weekend!

Introducing The Little Tart's 'Dark Magic'

The Little Tart's 'Dark Magic'
Let us put a spell on you!

They said we were mad!
They said it couldn't be done!
They don't exist... it was just the voices in our heads!
Introducing (drum roll please)....

'Dark Magic'

The concept for this chocolatey tart came about at the end of last summer and we have been itching to give it a try.

The inspiration for this tart comes from lava cake. Unlike lava cake this tart doesn't have to be warmed to ooze; although warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream... shivvvers!

We have a couple of new flavours we're working on for this year and this is the first we have deemed The Little Tart worthy.

Have a wonderful Sunday!

We're Baking Wedded Bliss

There is always a point in time during the winter when we feel that disconnect from you guys. We've been closed for a few months and opening is still months away. We're muddling through (like everyone else) the cold, snowy, messy, grey (insert other adjectives here) weather and wonder if those summertime memories cross people's minds and if The Little Tart is in there somewhere. And then it happens...
The mail arrives and we receive a Thank You note for a celebration we baked for and inside is not only a beautiful note, but pictures of the beautifully displayed baked goods and of the wonderful people who invited us to bake for their very special day.
We cannot begin to explain how these precious letters and pictures make us feel. Our hearts swell with pride but we are so humbled to be treated as a part of their celebration.

These fabulous gestures remind us that The Little Tart is more than just a pastry shop and the people we meet are more than just customers.

We treasure every one of you.

Looking Forward to Opening Day 2018

What a winter eh? Just last week we were fooled into thinking it was almost over after the last big melt off then reality kicked in with another blast and POOF it's winter all over again!

Right about now winter feels like it's going to last forever. It was a hard one, not just for us here in the highlands, it seemed everyone everywhere was getting the real winter experience with the added bonus of February downpours. (Singing in the rain!)

I have to apologize for my lack of posting this winter. To be quite honest I have been suffering from social media burnout and just needed a break from being online. I think we all need to log off once in a while to get back in touch with the real world around us. At least that's how I felt. I very much appreciate you sticking around in the interim. I'm feeling much better now!

It has been an exceptionally quiet winter this year which has given us both a chance to recharge, but The Little Tart was never far from our minds ('cause, like, it's literally on the other side of our livingroom wall). Seriously though, for the past month we have gone back and forth on the opening date and without further ado...

(Drum roll please!)

The Little Tart's 10th season will begin on Saturday April 28th, 2018 at 10am!

This means it's time for us to get busy- er - getting ready! We are looking forward to seeing everyone again! 

We've missed you guys!
