It's been a wonderful... and super busy... year at the Beanstalk.  We can't let this great year come to a close without sharing a few more of our favorite cakes... Here's to even more icing in 2013!

Homer loves donuts... but he also loves chocolate chip pound cake with chocolate glaze.

 Monsters love vanilla cake with vanilla icing.

 Based on the classic story, The Pokey Little Puppy.

Starting off the school year with a blondie cake (with m&ms)!!   

A classy 1st birthday monogram cake.

And another one... pregnant women love cake!

1 year of Beanstalking in the Books

What a year it has been! Here we are, a little over 12 months since bringing Cake and the Beanstalk into existence at 1112 Locust St.  Thanks to our loyal group of regulars and many other terrific customers, we finished the year with our busiest month (February) in the shortest amount of days (29).  Since opening last March, the Stalk has added a wide variety of  treats to please the masses.  We now offer soup, paninis, and grilled cheese to go along with the many delicious pastries.

We're proud to host diverse events such as Story Time at the Stalk (target age range 4-7), Open Mic at the Stalk (for performers of all kinds), and art receptions (for our always changing green room walls).

Thank you to everybody who has supported us in our 1st year and we look forward to seeing you in the coming year.  Please don't hesitate to let us know if there's something you'd like to see at the Stalk, whether it's food, drink, an event . . . or anything else you want us to know!

And, of course... a few favorite cakes!
 a carrot cake with style
 R2D2 says happy birthday!
 a bicycle built for 2 means somebody got engaged :-)
 muppet pirates!
 celebrate your birthday with Diego!
There was no such thing as Lego Ninjago when I turned 7!
