Most people, in the developed world, at least, have heard of the Guinness Book of Records. It is the dream of thousands to be mentioned in this annually updated collection of world records, thereby proving that they are exceptionally good at something.

Do you know what are we THE BEST at?

Those who have a sweet tooth will probably agree with me that while chocolate is fantastic, it cannot always satisfy our taste buds. Something a little fancier, like a delicious cake or a cute cupcake, is necessary from time to time. Toronto is, luckily, not short of places where you can go and get unbelievably good cakes and cupcakes. In this article, I want to present a short guide to these heavenly places. I should warn you, however, that you might feel an urgent need to eat something sweet after you are done with reading this article — just as I did when I was writing it!

Real estate investment is not an easy business. It takes a lot of time, energy, effort, and patience to succeed. Some might feel that they are doing everything they can, yet nothing seems to work.
