A Cake For All Seasons

Patty cake patty cake, baker's man
Bake me a cake as fast as you can

Spice cake, cherry cake
Lime cake, coconut cake
Nothing's so sweet as a cream cake treat
And nothing has soul as a jelly roll

Fruit cake, caramel cake
Orange cake, angel food cake
I start to shake over carrot cake
But I have to sigh for the lemon pie

Chocolate, vanilla, strawberry cake
Apples. marshmallow, raspberry cake
Goodness sakes, how I love those cakes
They taste yum yum yummy

Patty cake patty cake, baker's man
Bake me a cake as fast as you can

And So She Said Let Them Eat Pie...

The Harvest Festival is taking place this Saturday, September 25 in Dunbar Village, a sure sign of autumn. Butter is putting a festive spin on things and at 1pm on Saturday we will be hosting a pie eating contest. Let's get a little messy and have some fun. The cherry on top? Free cake for anyone who stops by!

A Little Slice of Heaven

I wanted to start this Thursday off by showcasing our Peanut Butter Marshmallow Slice - one of my all-time favourite treats. I like mine for breakfast but that can just be our little secret.

Oh So Fancy

Here we are at the New York Fancy Food Show this past June. Butter took home the silver SOFI (Special Outstanding Food Innovation)  award for our raspberry marshmallows. The Fancy Food Shows held in New York and San Francisco showcase over 260,000 specialty food products - think cheeses, coffee, and sweets of course. Our SOFI is our very own Oscar, as near and dear to our hearts as those raspberry marshmallows.

In the Kitchen

Here's a peek at what goes on behind the scenes here at Butter. How much do you love our vintage Keep Calm And Carry On poster? They're popping up everywhere these days. And of course the cookie dough, we just can't help ourselves!

One, Two, We're Turning Three!

As I mentioned last week, we are celebrating our third anniversary this coming Saturday, September 4th. Come on down to the bakery at 4321 Dunbar and help us blow out the candles and have a piece of cake on us. Who knows, you might even leave with a few treats for the rest of your weekend but we promise not to twist your arm. Wink wink.

Celebrity Butter

Our friends at Good Carma Studio in LA passed along a photo of some celeb Butter fans from a recent event. Yep, that's the Doritos girl on the left.

And here's Julie Moran with her daughter and our famous marshmallows. Remember her from Entertainment Tonight? I wonder if she would trade us a s'more for a really juicy John Tesh tale Hmmm...

Back to School

It's back to school season and even if you've been out of school for years this time of year has a certain feel to it. When August rolls around, we all gear up for back to school shopping (or ahem, just shopping) and let's face it, sometimes back to school can feel a little gloomy. I have always liked the idea of leaving little notes in someone's lunch box. A post-it with a photo or a 'have a great day' stuck to a chocolate chip cookie is both cute and simple.

Retro lunchboxes are big right now and retro lunchboxes call for retro treats so even if your honey or bff isn't going back to school send them on their way with a little note and a s'more or a giant sugar cookie. We promise this will make the first week back at school or work more enjoyable. Next week you can go back to apples and cheese slices but let's ease into things for now.

Happy Anniversary, Cupcake

Our anniversary is coming up on September 4th. We're turning THREE and well, we think that deserves a cupcake don't you? We're still planning the party so stay tuned but make sure to make a post-it and save the date. Stop by the bakery on the 4th to clink cupcakes in celebration. Cheers.
