October’s End, November Just Beginning

pie cupcakesThis past Saturday, we said goodbye to the Pumpkin Spice Mini Cupcake, our October Cupcake Special, and Hello! to our newest treat: Cinnamon Glazed Almonds. Though we are sad to see the mini cupcakes leave, we are excited for our upcoming November Cupcake Special: Pumpkin Marshmallow! These pumpkin cupcakes are frosted with cinnamon “buttercream” and topped with vegan marshmallows. $36/dozen, $39/dozen for gluten-free. These are perfect for every party and event you have planned this month! Who doesn’t love a well-spiced pumpkin treat, especially when it’s accompanied by marshmallows?

glazed almondsIf you can’t make it to the Bedford Gallery this Sunday, there will be two more opportunities to visit the Mollie Rose Baking Company. You’ll find us at our E. 17th pop up on November 17 and at the Patchwork Show in Jack London Square on November 24. Just remember: this is the last month to pick up (or order) our Spiced Apple Hand Pies! Don’t miss out!

 

 

Pumpkins, Apples, Almonds, and Events!

pop up2Yesterday, we had our pop up on E. 17th at 3rd Avenue and met lots of new people and saw plenty of familiar faces! Thank you to all the folks who showed up! It was a beautiful Fall day in Oakland, and we’re looking forward to all the events coming up next month.

pumpkin brittleAt the event yesterday, we premiered our Fall/Winter candy special: Pumpkin Seed Brittle! It’s made with organic sugar, organic roasted pumpkin seeds, organic raw agave nectar, organic nonhydrogenated margarine, vanilla extract, spices, baking soda, and salt! No dairy, no gluten, no corn; just plain ol’ delicious sweetness! We almost sold out of this new candy, so it looks like a new batch is in the near future. Order it on our site or our webstand!

chocolate2We also had our Dark Chocolate Almond Bark (with cacao nibs and maple sugar!) for sale. This is a rich chocolate enveloping roasted almonds and nibs, sprinkled with maple sugar. Get it while you can; as the holidays approach, we’ll be phasing this chocolate out and bringing in a new treat!

breadsNo pop up would be complete without some of our amazing bread! Yesterday, we completely sold out of these delicious loaves! The olive bread was made with thyme instead of rosemary for a new aromatic sensation. Our molasses bread is always baked with Sierra Nevada beer, which gives it that wonderful texture. Order your loaves today!

Our next pop up is this Saturday, October 26th at Lake Merritt from 11am until 2pm. You can find us between Brooklyn and Wayne on Lakeshore Avenue. Stop by for Spiced Apple Hand Pies, Pumpkin Spice Mini Cupcakes, Pumpkin Seed Brittle, Dark Chocolate Almond Bark, Figgy Thyme Jam, Harvest Pear Jam, fresh loaves of bread, and a new treat: Cinnamon Roasted Almonds!

 

 

October Madness!

We premiered them at our pop up this past Sunday, and you’ll be able to find them on October 20th at E. 17th and 3rd, and then again (for the final October pop up) at Lakeshore and Wayne on October 26th. Check out our events page for more info!

We will also begin selling our Pumpkin Seed Brittle this month, and we will continue to sell it through December. We have several recipes in the experimental phase, including an exciting gluten-free bread recipe! We’ll keep you posted. 😉

 

October Has Arrived! New Cupcake Time!

packaged candySeptember has left us, and now we are on the brink of the holiday season! Starting today, you can e-mail us with your order for Pumpkin Spice Mini Cupcakes, our October Cupcake Special! At $15/dozen (that’s a mere $1.25 each), you can have all that lovely seasonal pumpkin taste, accentuated with cinnamon, ginger, and cloves. Stay tuned for a picture of these mini delights! The picture above is from our pop up on Sunday, where we started selling our very last batch of Sunflower Seed Brittle of 2013. Don’t worry; soon you’ll be able to buy Pumpkin Seed Brittle for all your candy needs! But this Saturday will be your last chance for the Sunflower Seed Brittle, so order some or come out to our event!

BAHM SeptYou may have come by and seen us at last month’s BAHM; we were stationed just next to the Kitchener Oakland for a night of food, fun, and art (Creative Growth Art Center is just across the street). It was lovely meeting all the new people, eating all the delicious food, and hanging out under the harvest moon! We will unfortunately miss out on this month’s Bay Area Homemade Market, but keep an eye out for our other events.

photo (11)Meet our Harvest Pear Jam! Along with our Figgy Thyme Jam, it is one of our seasonal preserves offered this Fall. Bartlett pears are cooked with cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg and then pureed into a mostly-smooth pie-like jam. Enjoy on French toast, waffles, scones, or atop ice cream for a “pie a la mode.” Order via cottagemeal.com/mollierosesbakingco or e-mail us at msmollierose@gmail.com
