Shoptalk Header

Welcome to our monthly newsletter: SHOP talk! While we welcome you to VISIT The Cake Shop to sample our delicious baked goods, we look forward to BRINGING you our latest, greatest news, by email, each month. A new method is in the works, but “taste test” this newsletter format for now! We’ve included some event pictures, details on an upcoming storytime, our cupcake of the month, and a featured recipe! Plus, you’re just a click away from our special events calendar and the rest of Cake Shop website – which is regularly updated with information on our newest bakery offerings.

The newest item in our display case is the May Cupcake of the Month: CINNABUN! Make sure you stop by the shop this month, because this sweet treat will only be here through May!

This has been a busy spring at The Cake Shop. Our kitchen was cranking out cakes left and right for college graduation and first communion celebrations this past weekend. And, as always, our calendar has been full of birthday parties, culinary classes, baby showers, bridal luncheons, and youth workshops. Check out this adorable baby boy breakfast shower. More pictures from the event can be found in an earlier blog post. Next month, we’ll be unveiling our new baby and bridal shower packages, as well as packages for grown-up cupcake decor parties!

Next month we are excited to be holding our first-annual Kids in the Kitchen Summer Camp (which is FULL!), but in the next newsletter, we’ll announce dates for a couple single-day youth workshops, as well as a summer culinary class. Earlier this month, we all learned a ton about meals on the go when we hosted Randi Shiver, AKA Little Miss Mason Jar. Don’t forget – we carry Randi’s book in our shop. It would make a great teacher gift (with a mixing bowl … and a cupcake, of course!)

Things always seem to be HOPPIN’ in our party room, and that was definitely the case when we hosted our Easter Bunny Buffet in mid-April. Many of you “hopped on by” for a sweet treat, a bunny snack, and craft! We look forward to seeing those cute, young faces again on Wednesday, May 14th, for our monthly “Preschool Storytime & Crafts” hour. In April, we celebrated National Peanut Butter & Jelly Day, by sampling the just-unveiled Cupcake of the Month. You guessed it – PB&J. And we enjoyed great children’s books read by TallyMom Vanessa. In addition to making Storytime with TallyMom appearances, Vanessa runs a wonderful community calendar and resource – TallyConnection.com (where she posts many of her storytimes online). Hope all of you preschool families can join us in the shop later this month.image(8)Coming soon? The Cake Shop Cookie of the Month! Plus, exciting news, and updates to, our series of workshops designed for local Girl Scout troops. We also have several school and camp groups joining us this summer for field trips. Contact our Director of Special Events and Community Relations¬†for more information. And, of course, always follow us on Facebook. We’ll wrap things up with a recipe – one of Linda Richards’ favorites – Bacon, Cheddar, and Chive Scones. These scones were featured in one of our recent culinary classes, alongside a dinner soup. But, they would be fabulous for brunch, or with a summer salad. Simple and savory!¬† image(7)

See you soon at The Cake Shop … where we’re always BAKING memories!
