_____ are red, _____ are blue,
Valentine’s is almost here,
And we have a surprise for you!

Come find out how we are filling in the blanks this Valentine’s week while our cohorts Damsel Floral take over the bakery with a pop-up shop! What could be better than the smell of our oven baking up all sorts of sweets imaginable? Flowers. Fresh flowers. We’re pretty sure that this is the perfect one-stop shop for your sweetheart, and have a good feeling it will be a feast for your eyes too. Come feel the magic as we transform our shop for this occasion!

Damsel Floral will be in The Cakabakery on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, February 12th-14th with rare roses, colorful tulips and more. Flowers start at $5 to give any budget the chance to be sweet on someone.

Stop over to www.damselfloral.com and begin falling in love.

(Psssst, Fun Fact: Before we moved in with our trusty oven in tow, the windmill building was a flower shop in a past life!)

In Michigan, we know what winter is all about. Each year we speculate, will we have the big blizzard? Will we be buried under fourteen inches of snow tomorrow? It’s the season we all secretly adore, giving us an excuse to stay in for safety’s sake, forcing us, completely against our will, to curl up with warm mugs of tea, cocoa, good books, and wool blankets. When you live where the snow falls softly, you can’t help but let Mother Winter win your heart over at least a few times throughout the season. The rich colors of spiced chocolate, warm fur, cozy knit sweaters, flickering fireside, calm and quiet white. The scents of cedar, spruce, pine and mulling spice.ww4ww6

When we take the beauty that winter offers us, and surround two people on their most important day with the ones who love them most dearly; there could be nothing warmer or more romantic. Candle light dancing, velvet gowns, dark hues, soft music and warm drinks. The cold invites both bride and groom to open their imagination to the magic in the frost, to a more fanciful world where they can ride away in a horse drawn sleigh.

Winter’s backdrop can suit any palette, from shimmering gold and luscious crimson, to playful blues and forest greens. Here at The Cakabakery, we feel the same way about our cakes, with a slightly different palate! The options are endless, from fruit tarts or traditional pies, to cakes with notes of clove, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg. Holiday inspired cookies are full of creative potential. You can choose to warm up or cool off your treats; any way you slice it will be just as sweet. ww3

At Cakabakery, we’ve been planning toward Spring for weeks. All of our flavors and colors have shifted to lights and brights to reflect the Easter holiday and the advent of Spring. Ok, so we may have over done it a bit with the pastel colors… but who could blame us? We’re just so thrilled to share in this and every season with you. Stop in today for bunny shaped butter cookies, candies to add to your baskets and many more charming ways to celebrate the season.

See you soon!

It’s always gratifying to have a talented friend ask you to be involved in a creative project. At Cakabakery, we live to create and when pals are involved we just go NUTS (walnuts and almonds, to be specific)!

Take a look at that our good friend, Sam Vanderlist of Shutter Sam Photography created with a lot of local and gifted friends. The theme is, “Red’s Winter Wedding”. We’ll share her blog and resulting media very soon. For now, here’s your exclusive peek at the winter wonder.

Here’s to fresh treats and fresh inspiration from your Cakabakery Team!

WHAT? WHO? ME?

WHAT? WHO? ME?

Do bakers have birthdays? Of course they do! Did you know that Jason Kakabaker is having a birthday… this week? On January 10th Mr. Kakabaker will mark one more year of custom baking on his calendar. This is cause for a proper celebration!

We’ll be making his day special at Cakabakery and we’d like you to help us. Drop in this week and tell Jason what he has meant to you. Did he make your baby’s first b-day a SMASH? Did he make your wedding the sweetest day, ever? Did he squeeze you real tight one time and make your heart swoon (he does that a lot)? Stop in and tell him how you feel. Sing him a birthday song… write him a celebratory rhyme… whatever you like. He’ll smile for days!

That’ll make him, and the rest of us at team Cakabakery, real happy. And we all like happy!

Hope to see you soon!

The Cakabakery Team

What’s your favorite part of the holidays? Is it hanging the tinsel on the tree? Is it attending all the events and dressing like an elf for a month? Or perhaps its the shopping. No, not the shopping? You’re kidding? You must not know that we have your gifting covered.

At Cakabakery we have partnered with local artisans, crafters and the green-tumb-iest pals we know to create a Christmas Shop that we think you’ll love!

Here’s what we’ve got…

We’ve got greenery bundles to deck the halls, Wreaths in all sizes to adorn your walls… Cocoa Mug Kits to give them grin-fits, Cake-a-Long jars you can send up to mars… Towels to wrap with or give to a hostess, Cards made of wood that we think are the mostest… (I should stop, but I can’t help it) Cute baby onsies to cover their bunsies and hand hammered platters to serve them what matters… “What matters”, you ask with a tilt in your neck. The DESSERTS, but of course, just what did you expect?

Happy Shopping pals,

Cakabakery Team

At Cakabakery, we’ve never met a cookie we didn’t like. When we learned that today was National Cookie Day we leaped for joy! After all if presidents, flags and high-fives get their own day, why not the cookie. Cookies are a moment of warmth on a frosty winter night, a nostalgic token of family and, perhaps most of all, a tasty bite of memory evoking wonder. Here’s to you, oh cookie! We love you today and every day!

Guess what we just cooked up? Cakabakery Gift Cards! We like collaborating with local businesses. We have Rowster Coffee making our signature blend ($16/#/wholebean). We have GR Bagel bring us fresh goodness daily ($2/all flavors) and so on. When it came to creating our gift cards we knew just who to turn to for help. Sarah Ponce of Woodzii, of course! Sarah makes wonderful items of real wood/veneer, all 100% sustainably harvested… naturally.

This lady is so fresh, she doesn’t even have a website or Facebook page yet. I’m guessing she’ll be famous soon enough. We’ve created greeting cards with Sarah also with simple messages like, “Shindig” and “Tidings” for the holiday season and beyond. Stay tuned for more on that front.

Now, come buy a gift card at Cakabakery or we’ll send them to you or a loved-one anywhere in the world. Any denomination, $10 to $50 on a single card. Give the gift they really want… an experience, a treat, a break, a moment.

*Order Up! pals!

Hello all! It’s that time again… Time to give thanks for all we have and to all those who make life more meaningful (and more delicious).

Hey! I just thought of something… It’s not to late to order your Thanksgiving Pie from Cakabakery. Imagine this…

The feast is over, the dishes await. But what’s this? The pie is all ready to go? Say what? No hot oven after the meal. No need to continue your endless task. That glorious pie is already perfectly perched on the sideboard nestled among the wreckage of what once was a lovely display. “Dessert is served, all”, you’ll chime. “I’ll take mine with whip”.

Let us do the heavy lifting this year. Order your pie before Saturday, Nov. 23rd. Enjoy the holiday, friends. We’re thankful for you. That’s a fact!Best always,

The Cakabakery Team
