Bakery and Office Holiday Hours for 2015-2016

As those last minute shoppers are gearing up for the ‘big day’, our little elves also work hard to bake and deliver you treats before Christmas. We’re more than happy to create custom desserts tailed to special office parties and even the occasional ugly sweater party!
We’ve celebrated more birthdays with you that we can even count and there have been the fair share of 3D cakes thrown into the mix and we couldn’t have forgotten about the custom cookies we started this year. As 2015 comes to a close, we’re more than grateful for all the friends we’ve met and even more blessed for all those loyal customers who keep coming back for more sweets!
We’ll be announcing some exciting new desserts for the start of the New Year and we’re more than anxious to see what fun and creative ideas you’ll request for 2016! Our bakery enjoys every moment we’ve spent with your close friends and family and we’re looking forward to even more fabulous parties.
Our team has been with you almost every Monday-Saturday this year so it’s no surprise we’re in need of a little R&R with our loved ones too. We’ll be back full refreshed and ready to take on those sweetooths at the ring of the New Year, but for now we’ll be turing the oven off and spending quality time with family.
Fate Cakes will be observing the holiday during the following dates:
December 24th, 2015 (Christmas Eve) – Closes early at 4PM
December 25th, 2015 (Christmas)- December 31st, 2015 (New Year’s Eve) – Closed

Share Something Sweet This Valentine’s Day

We all have someone near and dear to the heart. Every day should be a celebration of our love for that special companion, but most importantly there is no bigger holiday that Valentine’s day to show your significant other how you truly feel.
This year marks a special time and a special Valentine’s Day menu, brought to you directly from our team of dedicated and talented bakers and designers. We’re bringing back some items that were on our dessert menu last year and have added a new item which is sure to be the sweetest treat for your sweetheart.
After our heart shaped cake pops – with a heart shaped sprinkle design – were a huge hit last year, we had to keep them around in 2014. You can choose from a variety of cake flavors for these cake pops and we will deliver your order directly to that sweetie at work or at home (Remember, Valentine’s Day falls on a Friday this year :). So do something even more special and surprise your pookie with a gift at work AND at home). You can purchase these pops by the dozen
A new item on our menu is a variation of last years’ cakelette. We are happy to announce the new menu includes a heart shaped cake with a detailed rose on top. This is perfect for someone who might have splurged a little TOO much during the holiday season. We are selling these cute cakes by the pair.
Our most popular item no matter the time of the year are our delicious, moist and rich cupcakes. We will customize our cupcakes to your specific needs, whether it’s a special color of cake, icing, sprinkles of you would like a cute little heart on top. All our cupcake flavors can be purchased by the dozen and are found on our main cupcake menu.

Cupcake Blog: 10 Simple Memorial Day Dessert Treats

Checkout Out These 10 Simple Memorial Day Treats

It’s that time of year again. Start up the grill and get your party cookout shoes on. Like most of us, from Memorial Day until Labor Day we are on the road most of our weekends. Taking part in National celebrations for veterans and freedom, and other for graduates, weddings and new babies! Either way, most likely you’re in charge of bringing a side dish or dessert to these events.

We’re here to make your Memorial Day and party desserts easier so you can spend more time enjoying the party(s)! Check out our short list of 10 sweet and easy treats you can bring this four-day weekend!

1). Strawberry and Blueberry Shortcakes – All you need is 5 minutes at the grocery store and you’re set. Make sure to purchase a couple extra cakes and of course double the amount of whipped cream you place your cart – you’re going to need it!

2). S’mores over the Grill – This fun idea is perfect for any party. No bonfire needed, just a hot and toasty grill. Just make sure to keep the kiddos at a far enough distance if they’re handling the mallow duty.

3). Fruit Kabob – Fresh and cold. Use a variety of fruits this season and spend a buck or two on some fun mini cookie cutters to cut out fruits like pineapple, honeydew  and watermelon.

4). Popsicles – You don’t HAVE to go homemade here, store bought will always due…. but they are so easy to make yourself. Plus, you can mix water with any flavor of drink mix for a variety of tasty flavors you won’t be able to find on the shelf.

5). Chocolate Covered Strawberries or Pretzels – Cover or drizzle anything in chocolate and you’re treat will surely be a hit. Make sure to pick up dark and white chocolate for a variety of color options, but most importantly stock up on those Stars & Stripes sprinkles.

6). Patriotic Rice Treats – How easy is this recipe you ask? Count to three and you’re done. Keep rice cereal, butter and mallows on hand for any party for a last minute dessert!

7). Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich Bar – Wanna be the talk of the party? Bring some soft cookies (Chocolate, Chocolate Chip, any flavor you name it) and a couple of pint varieties of ice cream. Set everything out with a couple spoons and let everyone create their own ooey gooey creation. Don’t forget the chocolate syrup or mallow topping for extra tasty fun.

8). Banana Pudding – More than like this dessert is a traditional treat present at every picnic and outdoor party. There’s a reason it’s so popular… it’s sooo darn good!

9). (Kid Fun) Virgin Jello Shots – Yep, keep it the most simply by letting these cool in the fridge the night before in small disposable shot containers, or use those handy mini cookie cutters for patriotic shapes. Don’t forget to switch up the colors and of course make a couple spiced ones for the grownups – just make sure to color coat them correctly!

10). (Adult Fun) Margarita / Smoothie – Ahhhh… sit back, poolside, and sip on some grown up drinks – you have the day of… you deserve it! 🙂

Have a happy and safe Memorial Day!
