As I mentioned, we had a birthday dinner for our friend. As the traditional event, we usually buy birthday cake and bring to the restaurant where we eat. The dinner date was a weekday, and everybody worked on that day, so I asked Collin to pick up some dessert from a bakery cafe.

French Made Baking is the one I chose, which I checked out at Farmer’s Market. The cafe is on Kingsway, close to Broadway. When he got there, he called me there were not many choices. Those were what he chose, and I can’t remember those exact name and what it was.

What I liked most was Panna Cotta. The tart was good, too. The flan was much firmer than I imagined.

I want to visit there one day and eat crepe! 🙂

In the early June, my friend’s birthday was coming up, and a common friend asked me where we got cake from. I was searching for new bakery stores in Vancouver and found this place. I had never been the store, so I was trying to get more information. At the same time, I looked at the Farmer’s Market website for some specific vegetables that I was looking for, and I saw their name in the list! Good timing!

So, on the following weekend, I went to the Farmer’s Market and asked a few questions about the birthday cake (but individual cake) to the owner of French Made Baking. Anyways, I was interested in tasting their products and got some of them.

Butter Croissant and Chocolate Croissant

This butter croissant was not my taste, because it was a bit sweet. Both of them were soft rather than crispy.

I had never heard about canele, so just for my curiosity, I got one. It has strange texture, which seems normal, according to my friend. The outside is sticky and little hard, and the inside is so soft and moist. Madeleines were flavoured with lemon zest and vanilla beans, and these were my favorite of all these that I bought.

For birthday cake, if you want to buy whole, then you need to order in advance. Since we just needed individual cake, the owner said, come early, and we will have more choices. The quantity of each cake will be different daily, so if you know which one, you can call and order, then they will keep if it’s available.
