What a busy and fun few weeks it has been with my family. Prepping, backing and sending kids off to summer camps.
I didn't get to bake as much as I like, but I did manage to do a new recipe and a gender reveal cupcake.
These cupcakes are 4th of July themed and filled with a color of frosting to represent the gender of the baby. They were so much fun to make! I was so glad to be a part of something so joyous!
Above are my new Orange Creamsicle Whoopie pies. It took two tries and a combination of 3 recipes, but they turned out exactly how I wanted them! They are a soft orange vanilla cookie with a swirl of orange and vanilla frosting in the middle. If you a orange creamsicle fan, I can't recommend these enough! Now on the menu, 6 for $15.
This months Charity is Midwest Animal ResQ. The bakery will be donating 20% of all July sales to Midwest Animal ResQ.
From their Website:
Midwest Animal ResQ (MARQ) was founded in 2009 as a small foster-based rescue group focused on saving dogs from inhumane conditions at local large scale breeding facilities. With the help of dedicated supporters and volunteers, MARQ has grown into a multifaceted group in a short period of time. While we are still very passionate about retired breeding dogs, our scope has increased along with our capacity to serve the animals of the greater Kansas City area. Our adoption center in Raytown, MO opened in 2015, and our sanctuary property on 6 acres provides safe housing for animals needing special medical or behavioral help prior to going to their forever homes. MARQ's fantastic network of fosters open their hearts and homes to animals in need until a forever home can be found.
We are passionate about pets of course, but are also passionate about people and making sure their experience with us is just as wonderful as the new family member they are adopting. Our mission statement is "Completing families one tail at a time" and, our focus is taking the time to get to know our pets and our customers so we can make a perfect match! All of our adult animals go on a 2 week trial adoption to make sure everyone is happy in the new home, and our commitment to each animal is lifelong.
We so appreciate your interest in a rescued pet, and look forward to helping you complete your family....one tail at a time!
