The week ahead and red, white and blue cake

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.

Random photos from this week

copleyWe 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!

 

 

 

cake_0132While 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. cake-in-a-cup

This week we will have cake pops!

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!

Market update and news!

Okay, bad news first. The markets were deserted today and with the continued hard rain tomorrow we’ve decided to cancel our Friday markets. If you were planning on stopping by, please call us as we will be in our kitchen tomorrow and you could pick up product there.

The good news is that starting next week, we will also be at the Brookline Farmer’s market on Thursdays!

of the perfect specimens coming out of our oven–of course, it helps to have talented baking staff! Thanks Noelle, for the perfect french macarons. And look at Anna’s beautiful biscotti!!! I can saw they taste as good as they look.

Rain or shine we will be at all our our FMs this week!

Come on out and see us.  We have lots of yummy things, and a new fresh fruit tart made with made with homemake almond paste inside! They sold out super quickly at our markets on Sat!

We know it isn’t fun for anyone to be out in the rain, particularly our customers, but please show your support for all the producers who show up at the markets during this unusually rainy season. Rain is one of the hardships of outdoor farmer’s markets! If i am reading my weather charts correctly, we had record rain yesterday and last week, for these dates. Chance of rain continues throughout the 10 day forecast. So arm yourself with an umbrella and rainboots and  come on out and show your love! Violette Bakers, and all of the FM vendors, will certainly love you back. 🙂 Thanks.

hopeful that we will start baking tomorrow, 6/3/13

Just got news that one inspector can’t come until tomorrow (boo hiss). Fingers crossed he comes first thing in the A.M. or possibly today.  Not being able to use the kitchen would be, difficult. So please all, say a prayer to the Goddess of Inspectors so she gets him in and out quickly for us. .. 🙂

No markets this week, kitchen opening delayed!

We are sad to say we had to cancel the markets this week. The team is working tirelessly to get us into the kitchen, but these things always take longer than one would hope.  Sorry to disappoint, but see you all next week at the markets!

Also, we are doing a cake test bake on our new  oven on Friday. It has some great features that should help our gluten free products, particularly breads, be even better. If anyone would like to order a cake for this weekend let me know! We need to know how many cakes to test bake!
