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.
This weekend, we took a break from pop ups and markets to relax a little before this coming week. However, we did make the above Mexican Hot Chocolate 2-layer cake for a special birthday order! We can do custom order cakes, just e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss what you’d like. We also donated some cupcakes to the East Bay Vegan Bake Sale today, which benefited Bad Rap and Girl Army! They raised a total of $1,110 this afternoon for these wonderful organizations.
This coming week, our very own Ms. Mollie will be competing in the Rock Paper Scissors Collective’s annual Vegan Cupcake Bake-off! $5 gets you a raffle ticket and a sample of each competing cupcake. Check out the event here: https://www.facebook.com/events/423551107741637/ Try some awesome vegan cupcakes, and vote for Mollie!
Also this weekend is the monthly Bay Area Homemade Market in Berkeley! MRBC will be there with breads, jams, chocolates, candies, cupcakes, and maybe a few mini pies. Come by 3192 Adeline between 5p and 9p to get your delicious homemade goods.
