March Madness!

Strawberry PieIt’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!

lavender lemonThe 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…

edibleeastbay3.9We 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.

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.
