An Awesome Review From Stimuli Mag

February 19, 2010

Stimuli Mag, “an online lifestyle magazine,” that focuses on life in BC’s Fraser Valley wrote an awesome review of Mozart Bakery and Cafe.  We thought that we’d post it here for you!  Thanks, Stimuli.  

It’s Music in Your Mouth

It’s like something right out of TLC’s Cake Boss or The Ultimate Cake Off.

Designed by Estelle Matheson, half of the husband & wife team that own the Walnut Grove-based Mozart Bakery and Cafe, these cakes are so beautiful it would be difficult to even cut into one. They are customized with hand drawn artwork to fit in perfectly with your theme. You MUST visit their online gallery. One of our favourites is what we like to call the “Alice in Wonderland” cake shown here.

Whether it’s a birthday, anniversary, baby shower or a special dinner, a Mozart cake is the perfect finishing touch. While their specialties are Italian Cream and French Mousses, they also have a large selection of buttercream cakes, cheesecakes and European style tortes.

Mozart is more than just a bakery. They are also a great place to go for lunch or coffee. Luigi, the other half of the team, fires up the ovens a 1am to create amazing artisan breads for their panini sandwiches.

Luigi and Estelle are committed to being socially responsible. They buy fair trade products whenever possible, use environmentally friendly packaging and donate any leftovers to a local meal centre for the homeless.

This dynamic duo has unlimited passion and energy and their love of what they do is communicated through their edible artwork.

Mozart Bakery and Cafe is located at #12-20349-88th Ave, Walnut Grove. 604-882-0433.

HST Will Take a Bite Out of Your Meal

January 25, 2010

The harmonized sales tax (HST) is set to be introduced on July 27.  The new legislation will increase the tax on food from 5% to 12%, a move that will dramatically increase the cost of a meal and of groceries in BC.   The HST  will also cost jobs and it will hurt those that can barely afford food.  If you care about rising food costs, get involved and speak out.

Here’s some information from the No Meal Tax site:

“If you don’t speak out against the new meal tax you’ll be paying 12% on your bill for every bite you eat in or take out. That’s an additional 7% tax on top of the 5% you already pay for food at restaurants and coffee shops. Everything from coffee to lunch at the campus or pizza with the kids. Gulp! Thousands of restaurant jobs could go down the drain as well. So petition your MLA or MP and get involved.”

Server Problems!

December 29, 2008

We’ve been having some problems with our server over Christmas that we’ve been diligently trying to sort out. We’re working with our website hosting company to fix the glitches, our site has been going on and off line several times since December 23. In the meantime I just want to apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused, as it affects our e-mail system too.

Hopefully it’s sorted out now, it seems to be working fine today! Thanks for your patience.

A Little Girl’s Dream

May 1, 2008

A little girl’s dream!

One of my recent creations, this cake was made for one very lucky girl on her 11th birthday!

Silver and purple with white accents is a very popular colour scheme this season, for both wedding and birthday cakes. We even did a Confirmation cake recently in these colours. When deciding on a theme or colour pallette for your cake, remember that there are no rules anymore, your cake should be a reflection of you and your style.
