April Showers Bring May Flowers

Well, April didn’t have many showers, literal or figurative, but May is definitely bringing us some beautiful flowers! Last weekend’s Craft Fest at the Bedford Gallery in Walnut Creek was amazing! Beautiful art, lovely crafts, and tasty food. We sold out of nearly everything we brought! Thank you for coming out and trying our goods!

This summer, we will begin our stay at the micro-mall next to the FIREHOUSE ART COLLECTIVE events hangar, sharing space with other local vendors and Rasa-Caffe. Check for our hours coming soon!

photo (1)It’s been quite a week! On Sunday, we had our first pop-up at 1218 E. 21st Street in Oakland. It was a beautiful day with beautiful people, and we sold out of everything except two of our Carrot Cake Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting (gluten-free version)! We received great feedback, and now we know that our bread loaves are in demand, as is our pie. Don’t worry; there will be more! And, if you need some Mollie Rose baked goods in between pop-ups, you can always shoot us an e-mail at msmollierose@gmail.com.

sarahMore news! As of yesterday, you can start ordering our goods online through Good Eggs. Find us at Mollie Rose Baking Company on Good Eggs. We schedule pick ups on Fridays and Sundays. Check out the site and order some deliciousness!

The June Cupcake Special is…Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting! Vegan (of course), and we can make it gluten-free for those who are sensitive or allergic to gluten (or if you’re looking to get a little more protein in your diet). We also have organic Peach Lavender Jam for sale! Celebrate summer with a jar of this bright, new jam. $6.50 gets one an 8oz jar, $3.25 gets you a 40z jar.

This Sunday, June 9th, we’ll be at our Lake Merritt pop-up stand on E. 17th and 3rd Avenue from 11am-2pm. It’s also Love Our Lake Day! Take a stroll or ride your bike around the lake, then come on by and grab a gluten-free currant scone, peach-apricot mini pie, loaf of molasses beer bread or olive rosemary bread, a cupcake, or a jar of jam at our pop-up.

mini pies

Speaking of pie, our Summer Seasonal Pie Special is Peach-Apricot! These mini pies are perfect to share, but don’t be afraid to have one all to yourself. $5.50 gets you one mini pie with a flaky crust and slightly sweet, somewhat tart filling. Available now through the end of August!

lavender shortbreadLast weekend, these were a huge hit. Our Lavender Shortbread Cookies are available year-round, but they go so well with the summer! Slightly floral lavender flavor, brightened with Meyer lemon zest, these “buttery” and crisp cookies make everyone happy! Just like everything else we sell, these shortbread are vegan all the way. We use organic Earth Balance instead of butter, but we bet your friends will never know! order yours today.
