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!
There has been a very exciting development at the Mollie Rose Baking Company: beginning mid-June, we will have a storefront in Berkeley, CA! 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!
It’s a new month, and approaching a new season, so we bid farewell to Red Velvet Cupcakes and Orange Cranberry Pie. Though they were both delicious and popular, they had to make room for our new delights: Strawberry Pie with Meyer lemon glaze and Lemon-Lavender Cupcakes! The new pie is filled with organic strawberries and Meyer lemon zest. After baking, the crust is drizzled with a Meyer lemon glaze. These delicate pastries aren’t too sweet, so don’t feel bad if you eat one for breakfast!
The Lemon-Lavender Cupcake is filled with organic dried lavender and Meyer lemon zest. Each cake is topped with a light frosting flavored with Meyer lemon juice, zest, and lavender tea. They’re the perfect cake to welcome Spring! Imagine yourself in a blooming garden (perhaps Oakland’s Rose Garden), sipping Earl Grey tea and enjoying one of these tasty treats. Mmmmmm…Spring…
We have several Events coming up in March: next week we will be at the Bay Area Homemade Market at 1790 Shattuck Ave in Berkeley from 1pm til 5pm. Come by to stock up on yummy foods! Next Sunday, you can find us at the Women’s Cancer Resource Center in Oakland for Edible East Bay’s Edible Art Show. Sample food from local vendors and admire artwork from local artists! Then, on March 15th, we will return the Alameda Food Coma (hopefully with less rain) from 11am until 3pm at the College of Alameda. Come for food, art, music, and fun! Check out our events page (linked above) for more info.
