Now available: Cupcake 101!

We know that not everyone knows about baking and decorating cupcakes. We get many many emails asking about different techniques. So, next month, let Lola Pearl teach you how to make and frost fabulous cupcakes! 

Starting October 1st, we will start a new campaign to prepare our skills and menus for the holiday season. This means that you and your friends are now able to plan a night of sprinkles, frosting and cupcakes!!

Behind the Apron Tip: How To Can Peaches

Peaches are so great on many different levels. Whether you prefer peach scones, peach cobbler, bellinis, or peaches on your waffles in the morning, there is definitely a reason to can peaches! You will thank yourself in the doldrums of winter when you pop open the lid of a jar and have a bit of summer!

The local farmers are saying that we are just about at the end of peach season, so this is the perfect time to can! A bountiful crop means an inexpensive kitchen project. Check out your local farm or farmers market!
