Sprinkled With Love

Welcome to Sprinkled With Love! I started this blog in 2009 when I started taking Wilton cake decorating classes, as a way to share my decorated cakes with others. Since then my family & friends have kept me busy creating birthday cakes, wedding cakes & more. Sprinkled with love has grown to be so much more since then. Please take a look around to see what I have been up to, and remember, share some love and leave a comment!

Toronto, ON

As some of you may know, my husband is a hockey player, so we move a lot.  Since we got married in 2008, we have lived in Toronto, Ontario; Rockford, Illinois; Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and we currently live in Norfolk, Virginia.  Each summer we return home to Alberta. 

Over the coming week, I am going to share a little about what I loved from each spot. 

I will start with our first home, Toronto, Ontario.  We lived in a condo building at Fort York Blvd, and loved it.  We had a great gym and swimming pool and check out the view from our window! 

There was lots of construction going on around us, so some of the views have proabably become obstructed since then.  To the right, you could even see Lake Ontario.  It was nice to be close to the lake, with lots of trails for walking and biking. 

It was also great to be close to the Ricoh center, where the Toronto Marlies play.  It was very convienient to be able to walk to the games, and I felt safe walking in this area on my own.  There was also a Streetcar station right outside our building that went to the Ricoh, and many other locations across the city.  It was very convienient to take the Streetcar downtown to connect with the Subway too.

There is so much to do in Toronto!  I want to share a few of my favourites with you.
  1. Take a walk along the lake.  The views are great and it is so relaxing!
  2. Visit the CN Tower.  The views are amazing
  3. Enjoy a baseball game at the Roger's Center.  Toronto was playing host to a round of the World Classic Baseball Tournament when we were there and it was so much fun!
  4. Take a tour of Casa Loma.  This place is amazing!  If you enjoy history or architecture, you will love this place. 
  5. Take in a hockey game, either the Toronto Maple Leafs or the Marlies. 
  6. Enjoy a Raptors basketball game.
  7. We were lucky to get to see a taping of So You Think You Can Dance Canada.  There are lots of other shows filmed in Toronto, so check out what tickets you can get while you are there!
  8. Visit Much Music, and take in a concert.
  9. Check out the Hockey Hall of Fame.  If you love hockey, then this is a must.  You can even get your picture taken with the Stanley Cup!
  10. Go shopping.  Make sure to check out the Eaton Center and all of the shops on Queen Street. 
  11. Eat out at some amazing restaurants!
  12. Finally, no trip to Toronto is complete without a trip to Niagara Falls.  Trust me when I say it is amazing and definately worth the drive!
Of course, it is always important to surround yourself with amazing friends, and there were so many great ladies that were a part of the Toronto Marlies organization while I was there.  Miss you ladies!

Oh Toronto, how I miss you! Thanks for the memories!

 In March 2009, my husband was traded to Tampa Bay.  While we were only there for a short time, we fell in love.  Stay tuned for some of my Tampa favourites!

I would love to hear about your favourite spots and restaurants in Toronto.  If you have never visited, let me know what you would love to do or see if you ever get the chance!


  1. Oh, what a city Toronto was! Fun to see your pictures and reminisce. We were so lucky to experience all the wonderful sites, sounds, foods, views, and, of course, hockey Toronto has to offer! ;) Such a wonderful group of ladies and such a wonderful place to live. Hoping to go back someday!

  2. I loved Toronto! It was such a great city, thanks Debbie on sharing all those pictures with us, thanks! You said everything about TO, hoping to go back someday!

  3. Seeing as though I call Toronto home, I would love it if my fiance got to play here! HAHA. No matter what day of the week, you can find an event going on in Toronto. Whether it be different cultural/music/wine festivals, you can almost always guarantee that there's always something to do while visiting Toronto.

    Walking down one street you can find a huge variety of different cultural cuisines and that is why I love this city!!!

    For all the dog lovers - Cherry Beach Dog Park right on the lake is a beautiful spot to let the pups play and read a book!
