From Friday, November 21 through Thanksgiving Eve, Wednesday, November 26th, Short Street Cakes will host our sixth annual Cakesgiving Cake Sale! Cakesgiving features five of our best-loved cake flavors at a reduced price and available for pick up without an advance order. Dozens of Medium-Sized (2-layer 8″) Italian Cream Cake, Strawberry Short Street, Fresh Apple Caramel Cakes, Sweet Potato Spice Cakes, and Gluten Free Vegan Mexican Chocolate Cakes will be on hand every day during Thanksgiving Week, on sale at $29 apiece. The Cake Shop’s regular menu will also be available, at regular prices, with the regular minimum two days’ notice.
This Thanksgiving also marks one year since we began making pies in-house, and friends, I feel like we’re nailing it, if I do say so myself. I want to take a minute here to give some special recognition a shining star in our pie world (the Apple Pie of our eye, if you will): Karen Blanco. Karen has taken the lead in recipe development and pie production, and the results have been astounding. Thank you, KB, for bringing your A-game to Autumn! (sorry, something about you makes me feel punny).
ANYHOO! Pies for thanksgiving! We will again be offering house-made, all-butter-crust handmade pies in regular and gluten-free for Thanksgiving by advance order only! Orders can be placed by phone or in person at the Cake Shop, with two days’ advance notice. Flavors include: Blueberry Poppy Seed, Cherry Orange, Cranberry Orange, Caramel Apple, Ginger Pear, Bourbon Peach, Strawberry Rhubarb, Blackberry Cardamom, Sweet Potato Spice, Pumpkin Custard, Classic Pecan, Lemon Meringue, French Chocolate Silk, Key Lime, Banana Cream, and Coconut Cream.
