If we were having coffee this morning we would talk about our upcoming fall classes. Dave will be teaching a cookie basics class in October and an apple pie class in November. Both are perfect sessions to cover the basics for holiday preparation! The cookie class will cover three types of cookies: bar, cut-out, and drop cookies. You’ll discover secrets right out of our cookbook, including our sinfully delicious Lucia! We’ll equip you with the perfect knowledge and technique to face the holidays head-on. We use a website called Ticket Leap so that you’re able to easily sign up online for the classes!
Did you attend Bridal Week in Manhattan? We were able to provide a cookie bar for the Claire Pettibone STILL LIFE show and it was such a treat! We were able to meet a lot of great vendors and designers, view some beautiful dresses, and soak in all the inspiration! Bridal week takes place once a year in October at Pier 54 in Manhattan and we highly recommend attending.
Doesn't Halloween feel as if it’s just around the corner? Many of you are being proactive and already ordering pumpkin whoopie pies to celebrate the fall. They’re the perfect combination of pumpkin and spice and a great gift for a friend or coworker! We’ll also be offering some spooky treats for Halloween as well, including decorated cupcakes and cookies. And let’s not forget s’mores! Please visit and show us your great costumes!
We're also planning for November and Thanksgiving, also known as Pie Season! The kitchen will be baking a double-crusted apple pie, a pumpkin pie with a cornmeal crust, and a maple-pecan pie, all which will be available to order for Thanksgiving. Pair these pies with some whoopie pies or cookies and your family and friends are sure to have full and happy bellies. All pies are $30 and we will stop taking orders on November 25th. Want to try? Don’t worry; we’ll be slicing these pies all November long as well!
Have you checked out our new fall Cake Shop Cakes yet? Our pastry team created an earl grey cake with orange curd and orange butter cream as well as a fluffy cornmeal cake with caramel filling and chocolate buttercream, topped with caramel corn! The earl grey tea cake is homage to Ayumi’s native Japan where tea-flavored desserts are customary. The caramel corn cake, or as we fondly call it, Snap, Crackle, Pop, is our ideal fall dessert. You can purchase one over the counter or call ahead of time to order!
If we were having coffee this morning we would gush about how much we love fall, having school back in session, and all the great colors and flavors that inspire us to create delicious treats for you. Stop in and say hi one afternoon and try some of our new treats!
