3 Things We Love About Easter

3 Things We Love about Easter

Easter is a big deal in our family. It marks the beginning of warmer weather, brighter colors and a fresh springtime start.

Tune in for 3 things we love about Easter and a few ways we’d love to be a part of yours!

1. Easter means Spring is Coming

After a long, cold winter, the thought of Easter could’t be more exciting. Easter means flowers blooming, birds chirping, warm Spring break, and of course, the Easter bunny. 

In the bakery, it means turning a new leaf toward colorful cookie orders too! We love kicking off the season with colorful flower designs, Easter bunnies and Robin’s eggs. It’s a perfect opportunity to bring new designs to our storefronts!

We’d love to create custom cookies for your Easter brunch or dinner! You can choose from our designs on our website or bring us ideas of your own. 

 

2. Friends, Family & Food

Celebrating Easter means getting together with friends, family and food. It’s a time for community meals and all great meals end in dessert! 

Easter cakes and cupcakes are the perfect ending to a meal, no matter what time of date. And bonus, they make a great centerpiece for the table. We offer many springtime flavors including lemon raspberry, carrot cake, white chocolate blueberry and coconut chocolate chip. 

We can make custom cakes and cupcakes for any party theme or design. For Easter these often include, bunny rabbits, sheep, Easter baskets, and always lots of flowers. Check our our gallery for more ideas. 

3. Easter Festivities

From Easter egg hunts to Easter baskets, there are so many opportunities to treat the kids with sweets. In our family, its a tradition to hide easter baskets for the kids to search for around the house. Other families fill Easter eggs with treats to go search for outside. 

What better to stuff your basket or eggs with with than Easter cake pops, chocolate covered pretzels and Oreos, or cookies!? 

Spring Hours are in Full Swing

We kicked off our Spring schedule in OTR last month. Each week we are open Tuesday through Saturday from 12-5 pm. 

On Montgomery Road we are open Monday-Friday 10:30am-6:30pm and Saturdays from 9am-4pm. 

We hope you’ll stop in to visit soon!

Cakes Ready To Go

Remember that time you forgot to order the birthday cake?!  Or when you found out you were in charge of the cake–the day of the party?!  Well, next time you feature in one of these festive faux pas, we’ve got you covered!

Announcing: Cakes Ready To Go!

Every week, we have a limited number of these little beauties in each store, pre-made for you and decorated for any occasion.

Here’s what you need to know:

Cakes for all Occasions

Cakes Ready To Go come in a variety of designs that vary from week to week. This includes everything from sprinkle cakes and drip cakes to simple textured buttercream designs.

Since they are pre-made, you’re able to score some scrumptiousness on the spot.  Choose from what we have available when you stop in or call ahead to see what’s bakin’.  They’re first-come, first-served, so the earlier you are–the better your selection.  You may even find seasonal and holiday-specific cakes available!

Cakes Ready To Go come in 4″ or 6″ sizes, serving 6-12 people.  Combine a smaller cake with a selection of cupcakes, cake pops, cookies or chocolate-dipped pretzels and Oreos to create a dessert table that serves even more people.

Impress your guests when you can’t plan ahead.

A Variety of Delicious Flavors

We are kicking things off with some of our top-selling flavors including Chocolate, Birthday Cake, Oreo, Red Velvet and White Chocolate Raspberry.

Imagine the possibilities:

  • A chocolate peanut butter drip cake topped with crushed Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
  • Oreo ganache drip cake with Oreo cream cheese frosting and crushed Oreos
  • A blend of white chocolate and raspberries with a splash of rainbow sprinkles on the outside
  • Chocolate and vanilla birthday cakes with bright, colorful sprinkle mixes
  • Smooth vanilla buttercream with rosettes and gold splatter

The options are endless!

 

Both Locations

You’ll find Cakes Ready To Go at both our Montgomery Road and OTR locations.  All the baking happens at the Montgomery Road store, but you can have any cake or order sent to the OTR store for pickup!

Special Orders

Customize the colors, writing, and decorations on your cake by placing a special order in advance.

However, if you need a larger cake or know that you need a cake for a specific date, be sure to give us a call.  Handling things person to person eliminates miscommunication and ensures that you get exactly what you need.

Stop into the store, call to reserve a cake for pickup later, or place a special order in advance.  With so many options, how can you lose?

Call 513-984-1100 or come by to check out our current selection before they all fly out the door!

5 Reasons to Checkout Our OTR Location

Our Over the Rhine location may be smaller, but it’s just as sweet. If you haven’t checked it out yet (or even if you have!) here are a few reasons you’ll want to visit!

1. Walk In Treats are the Perfect Pick-Me-Up

Located in Over the Rhine, this location is convenient for anyone downtown or traveling from Northern Kentucky or surrounding areas.

Whether you need an afternoon pick-me-up, last minute birthday cupcakes for a co-worker or dessert for a dinner party, we’ve got you covered.

With a selection of cake pops, cupcakes, cookies and chocolate dipped pretzels and oreos, chocolate peanut butter graham crackers, brownies and chocolate chip cookies, there’s something to satisfy any sweet tooth. Cake pops are especially popular in OTR because they’re convenient and easy to grab on the go.

 

2. All of the Special Ordering Possibilities

You can place any special custom order for pickup at either location. The OTR location doesn’t have a kitchen, which means we make everything at the Montgomery Road location, but we can have your order ready for you in OTR anytime during the store’s business hours.

This location is in downtown Cincinnati and just across the river from Northern Kentucky. It’s easy to access from the highway and has street parking right in front.  And don’t forget, we also offer local delivery in the area for extra convenience!

We can customize any of our products for any event, theme or occasion. We specialize in wedding events, baby showers, birthdays, corporate logo items, baptisms, anniversaries, and of course, seasonal holidays. 

3. Nearby Downtown Businesses

We can create logo cupcakes, cake pops and cookies to represent your brand.

A few businesses we have collaborated with are Cincinnati Magazine, Kroger, Empower Media Marketing, Flying Pig Marathon, Patty Brisben Foundation and Macy’s as well as University of Cincinnati and many local hospitals.

From birthday treats for co-workers to corporate meeting favors, we have ideas that will make any work event special.

4. Wedding Orders

We are located near so many of Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky’s most beautiful wedding venues. We love delivering and setting up dessert tables.

A few of the venues that we work with frequently are the Monastery, The Madison Event Center, New Riff Distillery, the Trancept, the Pheonix, Rhinegeist Brewery, Backstage Event Center and Hotel Covington

You can stop into our OTR location to buy individual items to sample and checkout our displays. We also offer wedding tasting appointments at our Montgomery Road location. 

5. Spring Hours Kicking Off Next Week

Although spring might not be here quite yet, we’re ready to kickoff our Spring schedule in OTR!

Beginning Valentine’s week, we will be open Wednesday 12-5pm, Thursday (Valentine’s Day!) 10am-5pm, and both Friday and Saturday from 12-5pm. 

Then, beginning February 19th, we will be open Tuesday through Saturday from 12-5pm. 

We usually take a Winter Break at the OTR location and have been opened weekends only for the past few months. We appreciate your patience as we adjust our schedule while we learn what hours work best!

We love being a part of the OTR community and hope to see you in the store soon!

4 Ideas For The Perfect Valentine’s Day Gift

4 Ideas For The Perfect Valentine’s Day Gift

4 Ideas For The Perfect Valentine’s Day Gift

Valentine’s Day is always a challenge.  You want to give something original, but you also want to make sure it’s a hit.  You need a gift that’s classy, but fun.  Something thoughtful, but not too heavy.  You’re in luck, we’ve got just the thing.

Saying, “I Love You,” is sweet.  Saying it with Cookies, Cupcakes, or Cake Pops is even better!  The best Valentines are the kind you can eat.  They’re tasty and tasteful.  So here are some ideas to make this year’s perfect Valentine’s Day gift the best ever.

1. Plan Ahead

The look of panic is unmistakable.  It’s written all over your face.  You forgot all about Valentine’s Day and you got to have a gift right now!  We see it every year and, although we’ll always be here for you in those last minute crises, why not make this the year to plan ahead?  (We’ll even help you with a Special Deal.  Click Here to check it out.)

Make a list of all the things your special someone loves most.  Here are some suggestions to get you started: Favorite Food, Favorite Movie, Favorite Music, Favorite Book, Favorite Animal, Favorite Sports Team, Favorite Hobby.

Now use a line from the movie, some words from the song, or a favorite memory that you share from that time you did that thing together.  Share it with us and we can use it to customize your special treats.  This could really pay off.

Think about it, your Valentine gets a perfect treat AND you have a stress free day.

 

2. Order In Advance

OK, so you know just what you want to say–great!  Now, you need to get your plan in motion.  The best way to ensure that you get exactly what you want, is to place a gift order in advance. It’s never too early to place an order, so head to our Order Form to send us your ideas!

We offer customized cookies, cakes, cupcakes, cake pops and brownies as well as chocolate dipped pretzels and Oreos. You can order a variety of these items in a matching theme, select custom writing to personalize it, or just leave it up to us to surprise you with a gift package.

Regardless of what you order, the most important thing is to place your order.  Remember, we’re going for stress-free gift giving this year.

 

3. Request Delivery

Alright, now that you’re going to order that awesome surprise in advance, why not have it delivered?  Delivery is great, because you get cool gift points and impress the friends/co-workers points.  The only thing that makes a perfect Valentine’s Day gift more perfect is having it sit on the desk all day, so that everyone who sees it says how cool it is.

Besides, ordering in advance with delivery ensures that you won’t forget.  And we know how busy life is.  Who couldn’t use a little forgetfulness insurance?

We use a courier service who will deliver treats just about anywhere. We can deliver locally to homes, offices, schools, hospitals and just about anywhere you need in Greater Cincinnati or Northern Kentucky!

 

4. Stop in on Valentine’s Day

Finally, if you just aren’t a plan-ahead kind of person you can still just stop into one of our two local locations on Valentine’s Day.  We’ll have a selection of freshly-baked goodies for you “spontaneous” types.

All walk-in items are first-come first-served, so we suggest coming in as early as you can for the best selection.  Believe it or not, you won’t be the only one looking for that last-minute score on the big day.

Call in to reserve items from the store by paying for them in advance. We’ll set them aside and have them ready for pickup when you get there!

Decorated Cookies for all Occasions 

Decorated Cookies for all Occasions 

Decorated Cookies for all Occasions 

Decorated cookies are perfect for all occasions! Not only are cookies delicious, they are also beautiful, customizable and can be made for any and every celebration. 

We use our favorite butter cookie recipe paired with vanilla royal icing. We have the flexibility to mix colors, customize shapes and add personalized details to match any party’s theme or decorations. 

There’s an exciting challenge to coming up with a new design! Let’s checkout a few of the most popular orders we’ve decorated.

1. Children’s Cookies 

Children’s party themes range from superheroes and princesses to favorite animals and color palettes. We love looking at your inspiration to come up with new designs that will make your child’s birthday that much more special!

 

2. Corporate Cookies 

Corporate cookies are a memorable take away favor from a conference, gift for employees, or dessert for a corporate party. Not only are they eye catching, but they’re a perfect snack mid-meeting that definitely won’t be forgotten.

In addition, you can add a sticker, tag or ribbon specific to your business to really follow through with your branding. Why give away a logo pen or notepad, when you could handout a delicious cookie instead?!

Sometimes the company logo is printed out and added to a cookie. Other times, the focus can be on the company’s colors or even a special product or service that the company provides.

We’ve made everything from teeth with braces cookies for an orthodontist to construction hats for a building company. 

 

2. Holiday Cookies

No matter the holiday, we can personalize your party or get together and make it unique with cookies. Holidays we have made cookies for include Christmas, Thanksgiving, Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Hanukkah, and so many more. 

The design options are endless and anything can be made just for you! 

Decorating kits are an easy way to get children involved and decorate to their heart’s content. We will provide you with everything you need to get the decorating party started!

4. Sports & Graduation 

Sports cookies are a game day must, from Super Bowl Sunday to wedding favors featuring your alma mater. Imagine golf cookies for a dad who loves to play, baseball cookies for a team victory or even gymnasts for after a big meet. 

Graduation cookies are often centered around the graduate’s name, school colors and sometimes even their speciality or major.

4. Wedding & Special Occasion Cookies 

Weddings are one of the most popular occasions for cookies. Beyond the big day, engagement party cookies, wedding shower dessert table cookies, or bachelorette cookies for the bride to be are a special touch. 

Baby shower cookies focus on any of a variety of fun themes, from “Taco ’bout a Baby” or “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” to woodland animals and nature. 

Baptism and christenings, bar and bat mitzvahs, and, of course, birthdays, are all opportunities to design cookies that guests will rave about!
