December and Winter Specials, Holiday Events

new tasteThis is gearing up to be a busy month for the Mollie Rose Baking Company! The first week of December brought a new cupcake special, a new seasonal hand pie, a new preserve, and two holiday events! On Thursday, December 5th, we were in Emeryville with the DISPLAY pop up market. There were craft vendors, a macaron vendor, and MRBC. We premiered our Apple Cider Cupcake and Orange Cranberry Hand Pie! We also had our Rosemary-Meyer Lemon Marmalade for sale with our Harvest Pear Jam, Molasses Beer Bread, Cinnamon Glazed Almonds, Peppermint Bark, and Pumpkin Seed Brittle. We had so much fun, we’re returning to DISPLAY for their Holiday Market on Thursday, December 19th! Check out our Events page for more information.

apple cider ccOur Apple Cider Cupcake is available at events and for orders throughout the month of December! Our spiced apple cake is baked til golden then topped with a cinnamon “buttercream.” Also available gluten-free for an extra charge. They’re a delightful treat to be enjoyed during this cold winter month along with hot cocoa, warm tea, and (of course) hot apple cider!

meyer lemonThe Rosemary-Meyer Lemon Marmalade has been a favorite at the three events we’ve offered it. Sliced Meyer lemons are soaked overnight with freh, organic rosemary. The lemons are then cooked with organic sugar and jarred with a sprig of rosemary in each jar. This marmalade makes the perfect gift for your marmalade-loving friends and family! Or you can keep it for yourself and enjoy it on crumpets and scones; we won’t judge.

displayThe Orange Cranberry Hand Pie is our Winter Seasonal Hand Pie! This tart/sweet pie is made with fresh, organic cranberries, freshly squeezed organic orange juice, and orange zest. The filling is baked in a tender pastry and the dough is topped with a sprinkling of organic sugar. These festive pies are available through February.

giftsAs the holidays rage on, some people start panicking when they suddenly realize they haven’t thought of a gift for their co-workers, teachers, grandmas, chiropractors, and other special people in their lives. We have the perfect soltion: MRBC treats! Our items are reasonably priced, delicious, and made with vegan and mostly organic ingredients! Order jars of Harvest Pear Jam, delicately spiced with cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. Or some of our limited edition Rosemary-Meyer Lemon Marmalade. Peppermint Bark, Pumpkin Seed Brittle, and Cinnamon Glazed Almonds make perfect stocking stuffers. All our products are excellent additions to foodie gift baskets! You can order our wheat-free Currant Scones and a 4oz jar of marmalade to package with that perfect tea you found for your aunt, or you can order a loaf of Molasses Beer Bread and a 4oz jar of Harvest Pear Jam to go along with that artisan nut butter you know your significant other will just love. We deliver to Oakland, Emeryville, Berkeley, and Albany (other delivery options available; just ask!). You can also pick up your orders from our kitchen or at our events this month. Orders placed by December 20th will be delivered by Christmas Eve. We can even deliver on Christmas Eve day between 9am and 1pm, and you’ll be able to pick up orders on 12/24 from our kitchen between 2pm and 5pm. Just use our Order Form and we’ll e-mail you within 24 hours!

Happy Holidays!

Craft Fest and New Monthly Cupcake Special!

pumpkin marshmallowLast weekend, the holiday season officially kicked off for the Mollie Rose Baking Company. The Bedford Gallery’s 6th Annual Craft Fest was wonderful! There were many amazing crafters and food artisans, and we sold out of nearly everything! We premiered the Pumpkin Marshmallow Cupcake (pictured above) at the craft fest. It’s a pumpkin cake frosted with cinnamon “buttercream” and topped with a marshmallow. All vegan, of course. Get ’em only through the end of November!

cooking candyCome by our pop up next Sunday in Oakland! We’ll be at E. 17th and 3rd Avenue from 11:30am til 2:30pm. You can pick up pie, cupcakes, candy, jam, and bread. We’ll also have a couple of other events this month. Stay tuned for times and locations.

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 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

Check out our events page to find out where we’ll be selling all these tasty treats!
