Wrapping up our first full month!

   The best thing about opening up on March 1st (aside form the whole starting your own business thing!) is that it has been very easy to keep track of how long we have been in business.  Right now, on March 27th, I can tell you with great certainty that Cake and the Beanstalk is 27 days old.  Come April, this computation will get a whole lot more difficult.
   We have had a wonderful first month... so great, in fact, that we are extending our weekend hours.  Starting Saturday, April 2nd, we will stay open until 8 pm on Saturdays and 7 pm on Sundays.  This week we have great specials on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, and then on Thursday the 31st we are closing out our first month in business with a bang... free dessert samples all day long!  And come Friday, CUPCAKES make an appearance at Cake and the Beanstalk (gasp!  cupcakes!)  We'll be serving up red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese icing to celebrate the Phillies' Opening Day!

Big Day Monday!!!

     After a great weekend at Cake and the Beanstalk, we're gearing up for a big day tomorrow... In the morning, we're launching a dollar coffee special from 7-9 am.  That's right, coffee is just $1 for 2 hours tomorrow morning!  Come on by!
    Later in the day, we'll have fresh baked apple pie in honor of a very special day (or really, a very special date!)  It's Pi Day!  Come celebrate 3.14 with a piece of the very first pie to come out of our oven... and it's only $3.14 a slice!
   It's going to be a super Monday!

Fee Fi Fo Yummmmmm

Now that one full week has gone by, we can say with much pride (and a touch of exhaustion), that we are loving this new adventure… and if you've stopped in our shop, we hope you loved your experience with us!  
   We are serving fresh baked desserts, all of which are prepared by Dan right behind the counter.  Thus far, he has churned out:  banana chocolate walnut cake, cheesecake, chocolate chip pound cake, strawberry pound cake, plain pound cake, several kinds of blondies, brownies, chocolate tree nut cookies, chocolate peanut butter cookies, coffee cake, blueberry crumb cake, gingerbread cake, and Jewish apple cake.          **Suggestions are always welcome!**    Please let us know your favorite homemade desserts and we will see what we can do.  Remember, all of our desserts pair nicely with the awesomeness that is Chestnut Hill Coffee and Espresso.  'Til tomorrow :)
