Cake Shop + Asheville + Strawberries = True Love.

Cake Shop + Asheville + Strawberries = True Love.

May has been a very busy month here at 225 Haywood!  The word continues to spread, thanks to all of you, about our cakes and cupcakes.  We are busier every day, and have enjoyed creating beautiful and tasty cakes for all your spring celebrations!  Graduations, birthdays, and weddings have made up the bulk of our work this month; friends and neighbors stopping by for cupcakes, coffee, and conversation has made the work more fun and the space bustle with energy.
We are psyched that the first bounty of the season has come in: Local Strawberries!  All the Strawberry Short Street cakes for the next several weeks will be made with fresh, local strawberries, and we are so looking forward to this summer’s harvest of local blueberries, wineberries, raspberries, peaches, and apples.  Look for specials and new creations based on seasonal availability.  We also continue to create new menu items based on your requests, like the Marble Ganache Cake, the Mint Julep Cake, and the soon-to-be-revealed Orange Creamcicle Cake!

Please visit Short Street Cakes for more information.

Cupcake Place Card Holders

Large Cupcake Place Card Holders – Assorted Flavors $6.50

These large cupcake place card holders look so much like the real thing that they’ll make your mouth water! They are the size of an actual cupcake loaded with lots of yummy frosting. Your guest will LOVE taking these home after the party to use as photo or memo holders. I guarantee they’ll smile (and think of you) every time they look at their keepsake cupcake favor!

The gifted artist that creates these has been a guest on Martha Stewart’s TV show. She also has had her own local TV show and teaches courses in faux food arts.

Your frosting choices are white, pink, chocolate, or green. You may order your cupcakes plain or decorated with either clear rhinestones,confetti, or a tempting, glossy cherry.

Each cupcake favor measures approximately 3″ wide and 2 1/2″ tall (unless you add a cherry – then they are even taller!) not including the place card holder.

If you would like each cupcake favor packaged in a white ‘bakery’ box please add an additional .70 cents per cupcake ordered.

Each order is ‘baked’ to order! So please allow 14 business days to fulfill your order. Then add ship time from VA.
