9 incredible treats you'll find at Toronto's dessert festival this weekend
Sweetery, happening this weekend, bills itself as “Canada’s Largest Sweets Festival” and while desserts, confections, and other sweet treats are certainly the main attraction, guests can also expect some innovative offerings as well.
Of the most novel items Daily Hive has learned of in advance of the festival is the MakNiku (Mak being short for macaron and Niku translated from Japanese to meat) from Jay Choo of MasterChef season 4.
Made from two macarons topped with sesame seeds, these macaron shells sandwich a mini beef patty with two secret sauces and sheets of nori. They’re a culmination of sweet and savoury, and east meets west all in just
a couple of bites one bite.
They’ll be available over two days at the Sweetery festival, and if received well, could become a staple on the Toronto food scene.
Here’s a sneak peak at some of the goodies also on offer at Sweetery this weekend:
Macarons from DaanGo
Churros from ChocoChurros
Panda Cookie-topped Cupcakes from Meng Bakes
Japanese Shaved Ice from Oh My Gori
Milk Teas from Camellia
Cannoli from Holy Cannoli
Vegan Pastries from What The Bake
