New Month, New Items!

mini red velvetIt’s time for a new Cupcake Special! We introduced the Red Velvet Cupcake (mini version pictured above) this past Saturday at the Grease Diner Art Bodega Galleria for their 3-D blacklight art show. These tasty morsels will be back at the Grease Diner this Saturday, February 8th for a Valentine’s arts and crafts day of fun! Find us there with delicious treats from 12pm until 5pm.

greasedinervalentineAgain, you can find MRBC treats this Saturday in Oakland. In addition to the Red Velvet Cupcake, you can find Orange Cranberry Pop Pies and Hand Pies, Almond-Sesame Granola, Sunflower Seed Brittle, and our new chocolate treat! Come by to make Valentine’s Day crafts and eat some yummy treats while viewing local art.

cooling chocolatesWhat is our new chocolate treat, you ask? Why, it’s our Almond Butter Cups! These decadent cups are made with dark chocolate, raw almond butter, and sprinkled with salt. They come in packages of two, perfect to share or to eat alone in your closet so no one tries to steal them.

kumquat marmalade

Finally, it’s back: Spiced Kumquat Marmalade! Pick up a jar at the Grease Diner this Saturday, or order directly from us. This is a limited item, as the kumquat season is short and sweet. Use our order form, or come by our events.

 

 

 

Happy New Year!

spicychocccIt’s 2014, and we have awesome new treats for you! Yesterday was the first time we offered our January Cupcake Special, the Spicy Chocolate Cupcake. The cake has a delicate crumb and is spiced with cinnamon and cayenne pepper. A generous dusting of powdered sugar, cocoa, and cinnamon makes this a tasty and fun dessert. Don’t worry though; no frosting means less fat and less sugar than those decadent delights with icing. Pick them up at events this month for $2.50, or place an order online for a half dozen ($15) or full dozen ($30) for delivery or pick up from our kitchen!

pop piesWe have also begun offering the Orange Cranberry Pop Pies. These are two-bite versions of our Seasonal Hand Pie (which are still available for orders and at events). Each pop pie is made with fresh cranberries, fresh squeezed orange juice and orange zest, and organic ingredients. These are perfect for parties, afternoon treats, and gifts! $1/pop at our events, or you can order them by fives for $4.50.

granolaYes, we have even more new treats! Now we’re offering Almond-Sesame Granola with raisins OR dried cranberries, your choice. Our granola is made with rolled oats, almonds, sesame seeds, organic raw agave nectar, sunflower oil, spices, and just a touch of salt. No wheat or cane sugar in this healthy treat! Perfect for breakfast with almond milk or coconut yogurt, or you can simply snack right out of the bag. $4 gets you 4oz of granola.

popupThe last, but certainly not least, new treat is our Savory Roasted Almonds. Raw almonds are roasted with sunflower oil and spiced with granulated garlic, cayenne pepper, and freshly ground black pepper. Almonds are a powerful superfood; they combat diabetes, lower LDL cholesterol, and contain lots of protein! Like our Cinnamon Glazed Almonds and Almond-Sesame Granola, this awesome snack is available for $4/4oz.

 

 

Out With the Old, In With the New

almond-blackberry cupcakeAnother month is ending, taking with it the Dark and Stormy Cupcake. But August is just around the corner, and that means the cupcake special is…Almond-Blackberry! These cupcakes are made with an almond cake and topped with a delightful blackberry “buttercream.” Fresh blackberry preserves are whipped right in to the frosting, and the cake is topped with a ripe blackberry! These cupcakes will be featured at all our events in August, and you can order them via e-mail (msmollierose@gmail.com) and soon through cottagemeal.com/mollierosesbakingco. Get ’em while you can!

This past Sunday, we had a pop up near Lake Merritt, and it was a great success! We sold out of many items (more jam is on the way), and our Dark and Stormy cupcakes were bid a fond farewell. Coming up in August, we will be at two events at the Firehouse Arts Hangar in Berkeley. Check out our events page to learn more.

Tonight we’ll leave you with this thought to ponder: Ben the bread maker is developing an herb focaccia for the bakery. The test batch was SUPERB. Keep an eye out for it in the near future!
