Life is sweets!


I wanted to use this space today to talk about my daughter Ellie’s new business venture, La Vie Sucrée. (the sweet life!)

Many of you in the Antigonish area will remember Ellie from her days at the Farmer’s Market in Antigonish with her fabulous cupcakes. She moved to Montreal many years ago and worked in a high end bakery.

Recently, she moved back to Nova Scotia and resides in New Glasgow. A few months ago, she decided to once again participate in the Farmer’s Market, this time in New Glasgow. She makes mini pies along with flourless almond cakes and wheat-free pies. The pies are baked fresh the morning of the market, ensuring the highest quality. Ellie strives to use seasonal Nova Scotian ingredients whenever possible with flavours such as apple, blueberry, mixed berry crumble (My fav!), peach, pear, cherry, maple pecan, and chocolate maple pecan.

As her “lovely assistant”, I travel to New Glasgow early Saturday mornings to help at the Market. Her products routinely sell out.

A few people from Antigonish have already discovered Ellie’s delicious baked goods and have placed orders. Starting this week, La Vie Sucrée is offering a delivery service to people living in Antigonish and surrounding areas. If you place an order by 6:00 p.m. on Wednesdays, Ellie will fill your order that Saturday and I will transport it to my home in Antigonish where you can arrange to pick it up any time after 2:00 p.m.

There is a minimum order of 6 mini pies and you can mix and match flavours. A six pack costs $22.50 and a dozen costs $40.00. Almond cake is sold by the slice at $6.

This week’s mini pie flavours are as follows:

-Valley Apple

-Great Village Blueberry

-Cherry Crumble

-Valley Pear

-Maple Pecan

-Chocolate Maple Pecan

-Wheat-free* Maple Pecan

To place an order, either contact me or send Ellie an e-mail at

If you have any questions, give me a shout.

Have a great weekend.

*Please note that the flourless and wheat-free products are made with gluten-free ingredients but are not suitable for those with Celiac as they are not made in a dedicated facility and there is a risk of cross-contamination with wheat products.
