Summer Days… Slipping Away

Good morning! It’s been quite a while since I have updated here, and the summer is now almost over! We are certainly ready to get back to business as usual (and kids back to school!). We have lots of things coming up and going on!

The Bakery

Starting almost a year ago, we introduced our cupcakes with our First Friday celebrations: Corks and Cupcakes. Each First Friday we host Roger’s Ford Winery and sample the latest cupcake flavors. Up until this point we have release 2-3 new flavors a month, but that is about to change. Each week starting Sept 1, we will be doing weekly cupcake flavors. Always available will be the standards, chocolate and vanilla, but now there will be new options each week!
If you follow us on social media, you may have seen some cakes we posted lately. Starting September 1, we will begin to take custom cake PusheenDoctorWhoorders! We do standard cakes (sheet, ¼ sheet, round etc.) as well as sculpted cakes. To get information about scheduling and pricing, shoot us an email at kickshawsdowntown@gmail.com
At Kickshaws all of our sweet treats are always vegan and dedicated gluten-free. That is right, no worries about cross contamination at any point in our baking. Additionally, while our kitchen is not nut-free, we are peanut free.

Pancake (and French Toast!) Breakfast

We are working towards the getting things going for Kickshaws Kitchen. We are hoping to break ground soon and to continue to give everyone a taste of what Kickshaws Kitchen will offer, we will be doing our Gluten-free Pancake Breakfasts EVERY SATURDAY through September! Join us Saturdays, 9-11am for a platter of 3 pancakes (or 2 french toast) and two sides. We hope to see you there!
