  1. Breaking news from Cakabakery insiders…

It’s a brisk Thursday and we couldn’t be happier here at Cakabakery. Of course, we’re happy most days… the cookies make us happy. The custom birthday cakes are a fun surprise every time. Inventing new ways to delight you is fun too. So what has us all in a tizzy today? We’ve been nominated as BEST NEW BUSINESS in GR! AHHH!!!

The Neighborhood Business Association is celebrating new and established local businesses in an event this evening (Thursday, Nov. 7th) at Wealthy Theater. How fun is that. We know it’s you who have made us worthy of nomination. Thanks for the love GR! Wish us luck, all. We’ve got our fingers, toes, legs and eyes crossed… here’s hopin’.

Stay tuned for the results tomorrow. So freakin’ exciting!

We are always happy to delight and surprise you with our windows at Cakabakery. This season we have created a window that will give you a sense of wonder without all the fear. In fact, our theme is, “No Fear”. Check it out on Wealthy Street soon… it will be inhabiting our shop for only a moment more.

Happy Halloween, all! And thanks for a great fall season!

Visit our window soon to see what we have in store for Thanksgiving and the holidays to come. See you soon!

  1. Breaking news from Cakabakery insiders…

We love variety at Cakabakery. Because we were on FOOD NETWORK’S Cupcake Wars we’re frequently called a “cupcake shop”. That’s sweet! But did you know we create a lot more than cupcakes? This week we featured a range of cookies and truffles ans again, we’d love your take on what we created. This week we made a Chocolate Chip Cookies, No-Bake Cookies, Butter Cookies in all shapes sizes and flavor combos and also… my favorite, a Hardy Cookie with oats, apricots, cranberries and walnuts. And would you believe, the Hardy Cookie is Gluten Free and Vegan! Yup, safe for all peoples!

Let us know what you think and don’t forget to plan ahead for your next event. Perhaps a cookie bar is in order? Happy tr-eating!

It’s all for you,

Peter Jacob – Director of Visual Brand, Cakabakery

Dear Cakabakery insiders,

You know we’re a “custom dessert manufactory” and that we can create desserts, to order, for any occasion. That’s a fact. But we’re now your neighborhood grab-and-go bakery also. We serve our most popular flavors on the daily in our new shop in Eastown, Grand Rapids. What we need from you is your feedback (foodback) on the selection we offer.

Our plan is to provide a variety of cupcake flavors, cookies, cake-pops, cheese cakes (mini) and much more. If you’ve been in, tell us what you liked best. If you’re planning to come in, tell us what you’d hope to see when you arrive. Comment here to tell us what flavors you like best and what new flavors you’d like us to play around with.

Just last week we tested a ginger/peach cupcake, a strawberry/champagne cupcake and blackberry cheesecake-pops. We had such a good reaction from you that we’re eager to try more new flavors… we hope you’re ready to try them too.

Thanks for the feedback, pals! See you in the shop soon!

  1. It’s Cakabakery on T.V. – This means WAR!

Well friends, it’s true. We’re blushing. Why? Because we’ve received a heap of attention over the past two weeks. Here’s a clip from WZZM 13. This one was an early morning. Yikes! 5:00AM, “time to dip the cake-pops”!

We also had fun with Mlive a few days ago. Thanks to Emily for putting this vid clip together. She’s a sweetheart!

And of course the Grand Rapids Press picked this one up and we were in print there also. Remember news papers? They’re that thin stuff we use to decorate our vintage displays. Ha!

Wellp, friends… we couldn’t be happier to be in our new space and cranking out the sweets at an insane pace. Thank you so, so much for your love and support. We’re able to do what we love every day, thanks to you. Now, come in and try something new!

Truly, Jason Kakabaker
