It's that time of the year again! Festive ingredients? Yup, were going through tons these days- cases upon cases of butter, big buckets of molasses, cloves, cinnamon... it's all getting pretty heavy rotation around here. As usual, we're getting quite a few drooling customers demanding some gingerbread because they can smell it from blocks away!
Even though the holiday season is especially hectic around the bakery, it's still a great time and we're all happy every day to come to work- the festive spirit really is contagious. It really is the most wonderful time of the year!
All this talk of warm-fuzzies reminds me that I'm especially happy about this month's cupcake features. Every December, we bring back an 'ol favourite and gingerbread has trumped the others again this year. It's moist and spicy. Plus, its oh-so-yummy! Not to mention that it comes with either chocolate frosting or spiced chai frosting. You really can't go wrong!
We're also bringing you a new one this year (because you've all been so good, consider this your Christmas gift!) It's a orange cranberry cupcake with an orange cream cheese frosting. This cupcake is so full of holiday cheer and festive flavours that it demands to be eaten around a roaring fire, with wool socks on your feet and perhaps with a hot mug of apple cider, mulled wine or hot chocolate as an accompaniment.
In other news, we've re-vamped our storefront into a winter wonderland! We've got tons of ideas for hostess gifts, stocking stuffers, teacher gifts and holiday desserts galore! Stay tuned for our holiday menu!
