Cupcake Extravaganza from Cakes for Cause

Back from Denver, slightly under the weather but no worse for the wear. Here's a little taste of what we did for the wedding. You can also view a cupcake travelogue on our myspace page.

This week at the Market we'll have our usual selection of croissants, scones, breads and cinnamon rolls...I understand several of you missed them last week. We're also going to be testing a crunchy crumb yum, a little like a Drake's Coffee Cake (if you're a Seinfeld fan) but basically a traditional East Coast crumb cake in a small package. Stop by and give it a try and let us know what you think.

We still need volunteers for the market. We have sporadic slots through July and really need folks to help out for August 2nd and 16th. It's a great way to meet other people who are involved in Cakes for Cause from the Frederick area and an excuse to see what's for sale at the Farmer's Market from local farms and gardens. The Market is located at Baughman's Lane (off Route 40, behind the Holiday Inn) and runs from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm every Saturday until November. Click here if you're available to help us one Saturday this summer.

Several people have asked us why we don't have lids for our lemonade at the market. At the moment, we feel like we're contributing far too much to the landfills with our plastic cups and straws and don't want to add lids to the mix. We're researching some more biodegradable options and as soon as we find something that works for us, we'll offer lids. In the meantime, thanks for your patience and understanding.
