Pumpkin for Easter?!

Welcome to my first blog post on the new Shopify website!  I have so much to say, but I'll pace myself and save some of my thoughts for subsequent entries.  

I hope you are as excited as I am to have the Spiced Pumpkin Cake rejoin the menu!  Pumpkin and lime may seem a bit odd for Easter, but I think they're delightful any time of year don't you?

You'll also notice some new packaging for our bars and cakes!  You'll get more for your money, get to cut the desserts to the size your appetite desires, and they will endure shipping!

A client from Illinois contacted me to ask if I could ship her a whole Red Velvet Cake.  I carefully laid out all the challenges of shipping a whole cake.  She took my suggestion and opted to purchase 3 layers of a 6" cake.  The layers are not assembled and the frosting is packaged separately within the box.  The large bakeries shipping cakes take several expensive precautions; cakes are frozen solid, packaged in special containers that allow zero to minimal movement, shrink wrapped, shipped on dry ice or surrounded by ice packs, and typically shipped overnight (not 2 days).  At this time, this is not cost-effective for us to try to mimic.

This week I'm introducing flat-rate shipping rates (based on the weight) to help ease the cost of shipping. 

The order cut-off day is still Thursday, but orders will be available for free pick up at Pita Pit (LKN) on Saturday, April 3.  Orders will still ship as normal on Monday, April 5. 

I hope you like this week's menu!  Your feedback is always welcome!
