We made our first batch of Hot Cross Buns today! $1.25 each, or $15 for a baker’s dozen!

There’s much great lore around this ancient tradition, but my favorite is this one from Wikipedia: “Sharing a hot cross bun with another is supposed to ensure friendship throughout the coming year, particularly if ‘Half for you and half for me, Between us two shall goodwill be’ is said at the same time.”

Ours features fresh yeasted sweet dough with cinnamon, cardamom, clove and nutmeg, your choice of cranberry, currant, raisin, or plain, and a piped buttercream cross. Fresh everyday now through Easter Eve, Saturday April 19th! (we’ll be closed Easter Sunday) Call to reserve or stop by and see what we have on hand!

Look out for many more Eastertide, Passover and Spring-y treats to come this season from Short Street Cakes. We thank you and we love you!
