this weekโ€™s cake slice box features a new flavor: dark chocolate pumpkin porter ๐Ÿ–ค๐ŸŽƒ

it gets its name from its decadent chocolate fudge buttercream frosting and the flavor profile of โ€˜s imperial pumpkin porter. this beer is dark, roasty, and drinking it feels like youโ€™ve propped your feet up with a warm cup of coffee and a slice of pumpkin pie.

itโ€™s not too late to try this cake! slice boxes are available for pick up tomorrow, september 16, in centreville, virginia. each box costs $40 plus sales tax and includes four of my autumn-inspired cake menu selections. comment below or send me a message to reserve your box today!

thank you to everyone who picked up a Motherโ€™s Day gift set from myself and Baltic Pine Studio! it was a pleasure to create, and an honor to share in your celebrations of the important women in our lives ๐Ÿ’โ˜บ๏ธ

my friend and cousin, the lovely karolina, at baltic pine studio (Baltic Pine Studio) and i have partnered up to offer you a motherโ€™s day gift box. it will include a vegan (๐Ÿ˜ฑ!) persian love cake and one beautiful hand poured beeswax candle.

this persian love cake gets its name from a folk tale about a young woman who bakes a very special dessert for the man she loves in order to make him return her affectionโ€ฆ what better way to reach the heart than through the stomach?

delicate, moist sponge flavored with almond, orange, and cardamom, covered with a sweet rose water glaze, and topped with slivers of candied ginger, toasted pistachio, orange zest, and rose budsโ€ฆ this cake is fragrant, light, and truly enchanting. the perfect dessert for an afternoon tea!

did you know beeswax has the highest burning point of any wax? this results in a candle with a longer burn time. beeswax candles also produce less soot, and actually work to purify the air as they are burning because they release negative ions which trap positively-charged toxins. personally i am not a fan of heavily-fragranced candles, so i must share that the smell of these is divine: subtle, natural, with the faintest bit of honey.

โžก๏ธ ๐Ÿ’Œ if you are interested in placing an order for this gift box, you will receive one 9โ€ vegan persian love cake and one 3โ€ tulip beeswax candle. this gift package costs $45 including sales tax, and will be available for pick up on saturday, may 7th, in centreville, virginia. orders will be confirmed with payment โ€” i accept paypal or venmo.

โœจ orders must be placed by monday, may 2nd โœจ comment below or send me a direct message to reserve your box today!

fresh hibiscus has quite a distinct flavor: tart and floral, slightly sour, and almost fruity โ€” reminiscent of a pomegranate. pairing lemons and hibiscus together in a dessert results in a perfect balance of sweet and sour. and look at that color! ๐Ÿ˜

currently brainstorming new cake flavors for spring, and i canโ€™t help but reflect on my growth as a baker this year. it only feels appropriate with valentineโ€™s day approaching that i say thank you to everyone who has shown my business some love these past five months. iโ€™m so grateful and i canโ€™t wait to show you what iโ€™ve been working on ๐Ÿ’โ˜บ๏ธ

pictured is this past weekโ€™s Valentineโ€™s Day treat box: pistachio lemon cake, dark chocolate orange milano cookies, one pink peppercorn and raspberry swirl blondie, and one bourbon brown butter rice krispies treat

i know that it is easy for me, a baker about to share the goods she has to sell to commemorate the holiday, to claim that valentine's day has an undeserved reputation. but did you know its commercialization with candy and hearts and flowers only came about in the late 1800s after the postal service started refusing to deliver the lewd postcards people would send to each other... true story!

so, in true spirit of the holiday, i am baking and offering up a variety treat box:

๐Ÿƒ one slice of decadent แด˜ษชsแด›แด€แด„สœษชแด แด„แด€แด‹แด‡ layered with vegan lemon curd, buttery, white chocolate milk crumbs, and pistachio buttercream frosting

๐ŸŒŸ one brown butter and bourbon ส€ษชแด„แด‡ แด‹ส€ษชsแด˜ษชแด‡s แด›ส€แด‡แด€แด›

each box costs $35 plus 2.5% sales tax, payable by venmo or paypal, and will be available for pick up at my townhouse in centreville, virginia, the weekend of february 12th. please message me or leave a comment on this post if you are interested in purchasing a box!
