February is here. . .and we survived the Polar Vortex!
Well. . . .that weather was interesting, right? We hope you all fared ok when Antarctica decided to move to our state last week. We stayed inside for two days straight eating leftover cake jars and cursing ourselves for ever complaining that our bakery kitchen is too hot. Nope, you will not hear us complaining about the heat ever again. . .and if you happen to be in our kitchen on a hot July day when we’ve been baking wedding cakes for 12 hours straight and hear us muttering about being hot—-just say the word “Arctic” and it will bring us back to our senses!
Anyhow, February has arrived and the shop hours are changing again! We will add Wednesday as an open shop day but still keep Tuesdays for pick-up orders only. We have some special events on Tuesdays in the shop so look for those as they get posted. Also, look for changes in our daily hours when daylight savings happens this spring (yes—-open later!) We will, however, be open a little later on Valentine’s Day for all of you lovebirds picking up your sweets.
The monthly flavors for February have changed too! Our cupcake of the month is TopHat. TopHat is a chocolate cake with marshmallow frosting and dipped in chocolate. Like a dip cone but better because it’s cake. Yes, we love ice cream too. (I mean, we are the Sugar Sisters and we love all the sweets.) But you can’t get a dipped cupcake everyday so in our mind it rocks over ice cream in this respect.
The pie of the month is Cherry Crush—-our buttery crust surrounds a classic cherry pie filling that is topped with our oat crumble. It’s the month of love, so crush hard on this one! We do recommend pre-orders for pies. We don’t stock many extra pies in the shop so it’s always best to have us make one just for you! It is so easy to pre-order online—-just go to our website at www.thesugarpath.com and reserve your dessert ahead of time.
The cakes this month are the Salty Banana and Raspberry Drip cake. Definitely try both of them—they are not to miss! These are available by the slice every day in the month of February or for special order as a whole cake.
The Do-cup flavor of the month is Blueberry Maple. Yummm. . . .like a big old stack of blueberry pancakes swimming in maple syrup! Seriously, how can you pass on a Do-cup??
Oh and you do have your orders in for Valentine’s Day, right? If not, we are open that day with lots of treats in the shop. If you would like to place a shipping order, those need to get placed by Friday so we can make sure it gets to your sweetie by Valentine’s Day. www.sugarpathshop.com
Happy Hearts Month!
