Tiny Tom?s first mini donuts were fried in 1959, back when the company was still called Tom Thumb Donuts. Today, the tiny soft donuts bubble in the fryer at their permanent and mobile locations, emerging toasty brown before donning a protective coat of crunchy sugar.

SugarTiers is a collaboration between sugar-paste artist Rosalind Chan?whom Teresa Kruze of Metro Canada calls "an international superstar in the cake decorating world"?and her former student, experienced chocolatier Evalin Chong. As Chan told Duhlicious food blogger Madalina Paul in 2010, she learned the art of baking from her mother, and left her native Malaysia to study French pastry at the renowned Ritz Escoffier school in Paris. She immigrated to Canada, where she decided to give up a successful corporate career and devote herself to the art of professional cake decorating. Chan then returned to Malaysia to found and teach at the International Centre of Cake Artistry, one of the largest baking institutes in that country.

Chong holds a diploma in food-and-beverage management and is a certified wedding planner. Both women have shared their expertise as Wilton Method instructors, and stay ahead of ever-changing wedding-cake trends. Chan told Sue Kanhai of YorkRegion.com, ?Years ago, no one knew what red velvet was?they thought it was a fabric! Now it?s such a hip thing." The popularity of red-velvet cupcakes was also the topic of a 2010 article in the Toronto Star, which mentioned SugarTiers' tasty version.

The duo offers baking and decorating courses in at their shop, where they teach students to cover cakes or scratch-prone leather furniture in layers of colourful fondant. They also operate a retail supply store, take-out bakery, and catering operation, handcrafting more than 36 flavours of macarons and cakes such as dark chocolate or moist carrot and pineapple.

The warm aroma of freshly baked waffle cones envelops every nook and cranny of Marble Slab Creamery, revving up guests' senses with the promise of impending decadence. As the hand-rolled cones tan in their ovens, the store's staff bustles about the premises whipping up fresh batches of super-premium ice cream in the onsite creamery and helping patrons select a flavour from a list of more than 50 options. This chef-driven dedication to gourmet ice cream began in 1983 with the company's founding in Houston, Texas, when two French chefs were enlisted to create a recipe for Marble Slab Creamery's signature sweet-cream ice cream. Today, staffers utilize the frozen-slab technique of ice-cream architecture, scooping each customer's choice of ice cream and mixins onto a chilled marble slab to mix the separate elements into one customized m?lange.

Though specializing in cone-based ice-cream treats, Marble Slab Creamery also offers other scream-worthy confections including cakes, shakes, and ice cream cupcakes. Catering is available at many locations.

What began as a single store with a single recipe in 1983 has since expanded to coat tongues across Canada with its handcrafted, always-fresh repertoire of premium ice cream. The aroma of freshly baked waffle cones roams freely throughout each Marble Slab Creamery location, luring customers counterside to watch staff members blend nuts, fruits, and candies into a variety of ice-cream flavours atop a frozen slab. Ultra-fresh ingredients, including dairy products from local farms, vanilla from Madagascar, and fine European chocolates with up-to-date passports join forces to infuse each bite with an extra punch of sweetness. In addition to standard cones, Marble Slab Creamery's daily-made ice cream can also be savoured in the form of ice-cream cakes, milkshakes, and floats, and low-fat yogourts offer a lighter, equally delicious alternative.
