Wintertime Friends Meet Christmas Desserts

Christmas desserts are filling the bakery, and with them they bring a variety of adorable winter friends. It’s so much fun to add whimsy to our holiday goodies with these seasonal cuties.

My favorites this year are the adorable fondant animal toppers we made for a perfect December first birthday cake. You may recognize them from the movie Elf. “Goodbye, Buddy. Hope you find your dad.”

Even though we don’t get snow in Southern California we still love including snowmen in our holiday designs. These snowmen French Macarons and cake pops are so popular right now that we can’t keep them in stock (the trees, too).

Gingerbread boys and girls are always a must. I must admit that ours taste even better than they look.

Gingerbread in general is at the top of the list of flavors for Christmas desserts. This year we introduced a gingerbread cupcake. Spice cake filled with homemade gingerbread cream, topped with gingerbread buttercream, and an edible fondant gingerbread cut-out. Yum!

Santa even agreed to loan us some of his special helpers, but just until Christmas Eve.

We have all of these special friends (and many, many more) waiting to come home with you. Stop in to either location to pick some up or place an order. Time is running out, and it will be a whole year before they’re back for a visit.

Be Thankful – Fall Desserts

I’m so glad there is a time of year specifically dedicated to being thankful. I’m also happy about the line-up of fall desserts we have to help celebrate this season of Thanksgiving.

Up first, a seasonal cake complete with falling fondant leaves and hand painted accents. Spice is our most popular cake flavor this time of year.

As if French Macarons weren’t fabulous enough, they’re even better when they’re done up as pumpkins.

Turkey cake pops make their annual appearance among some of the other great designs that we’re doing for fall.

Our pies are beyond amazing. During the season we offer apple-crumb, pumpkin and pecan. Just look at the homemade crumb topping on these beauties. We even do them in mini size.

Make sure to bring a box of fall desserts to your gracious Thanksgiving host and/or hostess. We have them ready to pick-up in both locations, or you can place a custom order to get the exact assortment that you would like.

While the colors of fall don’t exactly incorporate my favorite shade of pink, I must admit they are absolutely lovely, especially on this simply elegant wedding cake.

Here’s to another year of gratefulness for all my many blessings both in and out of the bakery.  Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Our New Store – Beverly’s Best, Yorba Linda!

It’s been a whirlwind since my last post. Hard to believe that was five days before we opened the Beverly’s Best Bakery Yorba Linda shop. Now here we are, just shy of two months in, and opening day seems like so long ago already.

We’ve loved sharing our new bakery with everyone. For those that haven’t had a chance to visit us yet, here’s a tour of our new location. These gorgeous photos were captured by the talented Jen Disney on that amazing first day.

Setting Up Shop – Beverly’s Best Bakery Yorba Linda

I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted an update. To say it’s been busy and crazy around here would be an understatement.

I don’t want to give away everything that’s happening behind the papered windows, so here’s just a little peek…

There have been many days (and very late nights) setting up the shop.
