For Rosh Hashanah by PRE ORDER only, for pick up at the store Weds 9/4 after noon, we will be making the following: Large Brioche (plain), peach blueberry and triple berry pies (sorry local pie apples aren’t yet in season!), Orange almond or Lemon-lime-coconut almond cakes and flourless chocolate cakes. Please get your orders in by Weds of this coming week. We’ve been baking very light for the store on Weds, therefore it is essential to PRE ORDER. Please pre-order by Weds 8/28. Macarons will also be available by noon by pre-order only. I am working on a honey cake recipe for the future!
Nicole, our shop sales person will be moving that day and Leesteffy will be taking a much needed rest on a nearby island in a house that has no internet and only so-so cell service. (Yippee!) So the store will be closed.
To start, we are going to be open Weds-Friday 11-6:00, Sat 9-5 and Sunday 10-3.
Our location is 1001 Mass Ave, Cambridge. We are between Ellery and Dana Streets and between Harvard Sq and Central Sq. Our signage isn’t great (yet), so look for O2Yoga–we are underneath them.
We will have the full compliment of items on our What’s Baking Menu, plus this week we will have cinnamon buns with fresh blueberries and fresh peach cobbler (both fruits from your market vendors!)
Come on in!!
Be bold, be brave, come out to the markets this week and try our chocolate cake with arugula-mint Italian butter cream. It is like a dream, so light, so airy, so unexpectedly delicate. The sharpness of the arugula and the sweetness of the buttercream pair into a perfect union. Plus, you get your greens, while eating your cupcake. Or if you are a bit less bold, try our carrot cake with cucumber Italian buttercream. It is super refreshing. We, of course, use fresh cukes!
I’ve been thinking about ice cream filled macarons for more than a year. But we aren’t ice cream makers. So this past weekend, we put samples of our french macarons in the freezer to see how they turned out.
OMG, they are delicious frozen.
The experience somehow is totally different from eating a fresh macaron. It is more akin to eating an ice cream sandwich, but an ice cream sandwich more scrumptious than you’ve ever tried before. This week we will attempt to bring them frozen to the market for you to taste yourself. The clear winner in the kitchen taste test was the cheesecake, but they were all delish.
Come on down to one of our farmer’s markets and get your Violette frozMac. And btw, since our homemade nutella is vegan, our nutella frozMac is DF!
Be a star and get a Fourth of July lemon cake with fresh berries for your party! Two versions right now, order one while they last!
This coming week, we will only be at Copley on Friday, Union Sq on Sat and Harvard Sq on Sunday. We are spending the holiday week getting our retail space ready to open.
But if you have a hankering for something special for the holiday, order our red, white and blue cake for pick up Weds July 3rd at our kitchen @ 1001 Mass Ave (soon to be our retail address.) The cake will be lemon with lemon italian buttercream and decorated with swaths of fresh blueberries and raspberries and white buttercream stars. With the cost of the added fruit, our 6″ is $40 and our 7″ is $50. Our triple layer cakes will feed 8-10 (6″) or 12-14 (7″). Don’t miss out, order now.
We are settling into our farmer’s market routine. Here is Kaila being a goof-ball about our almost cleaned out table at Copley yesterday. It was 4:00 and we still had two hours to go! We are working on a restocking strategy for when we sell out early!
While Kaila and i were playing Mary Poppins at Copley (it was unbelievably windy), Noelle was busy making this lovely cake for a customer who requested it at Harvard Square yesterday.
Earlier this week, when we thought the weather would be over 100, we devised this case in a cup. Extra large cup of cake with the center cored out and filled with our homemade Nutella.
Vanilla dipped in dark chocolate and Chocolate dipped in dark chocolate. Get them while they last. $2.50 each, or 3 for $5 or 5 for $7. One of our bakers wanted to make them, and never having eaten one myself, i was a little skeptical–but to me they taste a little like bonbons. Not too sweet, moist, and of course, made with healthier ingredients like organic dark chocolate, organic sugar and so on. Sorry, they are not dairy free!
Be there shortly. Thank you Murphy’s law for making sun come out. . .
Day old bread only!
