The new retail outpost of caterer Bakerbots opens quietly for the weekends
For weeks, we’ve been eyeing a little storefront at the corner of Bloor and Delaware, as Rosanne Pezzelli and her fiancé Christopher Stopa prepare the space for its grand opening. Bakerbots started off as Pezzelli’s catering business, but she’s expanding to include a storefront retail operation as well. Currently open only on weekends, the shop is warming up for a full opening in June.
Hints of Pezzelli’s first career, as an illustrator and painter, appear in the intricately animated designs that decorate the shop. Pristine white walls and light wooden counter tops provide a friendly background for colorful displays of sweets. While the retail business still offers custom cakes, customers can now pick up cookies, ice cream sandwiches and macarons as well. Pezzelli also has tentative plans to offer fresh bread and croissants from a nearby patisserie.

Best cookies EVER!!!! Macarons are delicious too! She makes ice cream sandiches with her cookies + Ed’s ice cream!
A big slice of the banana-chocolate cake kept me wishing for more for 3 consecutive days after I ate it. Cake ingredients are made of premium quality and the vanilla buttercream icing was the perfect amount of sweetness and cream. YUM-EEE stuff.
had a few macarons, they were amazing…and the decoration is so beautiful the vintage feel is great.
amazing bakery go visit them.
She designed our wedding cake last year and it was incredible. Roseanne does beautiful work!
I often pop in to say hi to Roseanne as she is a very friendly neighborhood merchant, so passionate about her business. I am rewarding myself with a treat day after each five pound weight loss…first reward day I had fresh strawberry-rhubarb galette with a small scoop of Ed’s vanilla ice-cream. Simply heaven! and I took home an almond croissant which I had for lunch before going back to the Dukan diet. Roseanne has some great ideas and plans to showcase her cake art. With the vintage decor and old-timey atmosphere, complete with benches outside to enjoy summer night treats throughout the week, this is a fun destination. and I have another half pound to lose til I get my next treat day there. I will write more about this enterprising woman on my blog at http://www.sailonsilvergirl.com….Glenda
