Swirls is a family owned and operated gourmet cupcake bakery serving made-in-house cupcakes, cakes, cookies and gelato.
I really love the cupcakes at Swirls! They offer some great flavours, and the cupcakes are always fresh and moist. My favourites are the Lemon Luau and Hostess cupcakes. Their buttercream is high quality, having a perfect texture and taste. As a home baker, I enjoy treating myself and family to these delicious desserts. Best cupcakes in the neighbourhoods at both the Streetsville and Etobicoke locations =). Definitely not to be missed!
I recently discovered Swirls through a friend who uses them all the time because they are nut-free. I was pleasantly surprised that they use Swiss meringue type icing instead of sugar frosting. My husband and I really really enjoyed the vanilla, lemon and red velvet cupcakes. My kids really loved the chocolate. For the last few weeks (since Christmas) my family has been picking them us as a weekly treat. We love that we can pick up just enough to have a nice dessert. What a great find!
I hate to say it, but will not be visiting swirls again. I was so disappointed by these cupcakes. Even though I purchased 5 different flavors of cupcakes, they all tasted the same. Basically its the same base for most, chocolate or vanilla and then they put their version of icing on top of it, which was not at all butter cream related. Icing was more of a whip cream base but lardy.
All in all, did not like the cupcakes and will not be going back. Even my 6 year old daughter didn't like them and she loves anything sweet.
Service and staff were unfriendly and not helpful. Take my advice and don't waste your time or money.
