the easter bunny requested that you look in your fridge for a white cake box this year for your holiday dessert… he’s out of eggs.

Easter orders:

~are available for pick up ONLY on Saturday 4/16, between 10-4 pm. 
~will be accepted until 8 pm on Wednesday 4/13.                                                        ~can be placed via email [] or phone 920/893.0617

Please note~ if you’re looking for a custom cake or cupcake order, that can be placed for pick up on Thursday, 4/14.  Friday, 4/15, the bakery will be closed to give a little more work time as Jen will still be easing back into full time work after major surgery.  With that in mind, we will be limiting the number of custom orders for 4/14 and special menu orders for 4/16.  Thank you for understanding!


Some Bunny Special Cupcakes~ this special box of regular size cupcakes will include 2 french vanilla w/ double chocolate fudge creme filling & 2 classic chocolate w/ crushed white chocolate filling – both combinations finished with BSB’s butter frosting.  Adorned with a super cute edible sugar bunny face. 4 pack regular size cupcakes, $12.

Egg-citing Mini Cupcakes~ Everyone loves a little cupcake.  Some people love 3, while others love 8.  Whatever number sounds good to you, help yourself to a variety box this holiday season.  We’ve chosen 3 flavors and are offering them as a special assortment.  Available as an assorted box only [4 of each flavor] of festively decorated treats.  $15/box.

~Vanilla bean cupcakes w/ lemon blueberry crème filling & vanilla bean butter frosting 
~Pastel vanilla sprinkle cupcakes w/ marshmallow crème filling & BSB’s signature butter frosting
~Milk chocolate cupcakes w/ fudge cheesecake crème filling & double chocolate cocoa butter frosting


Each of the cake flavors below are available in our short 8″ size.  This helps us keep our decorator from extending her lifting weight restrictions post-surgery, and we need her to heal completely so starting in May and beyond- we can be back to our normal bakery life.  If you need more than the 6-8 servings that a short 8″ size allows- order a second cake.  Who knows, you might stumble upon a new family favorite.  

Springtime Berry~ Our golden butter cake is layered with a refreshing mixture of mixed berry compote and sweet vanilla crème.  Finished with cream cheese frosting and festive sugar decorations. 8″ short-$26.

Easter Egg Wreath Cake~ Vanilla chocolate chip cake is filled with a lovely crushed chocolate cherry compote creme and finished with our almond butter frosting.  Decorated with speckled Cadbury Easter egg candies & pale frosting flowers to look like a festive wreath adorned the top of the cake. 8″ short-$26.  Almond frosting is nut free.

Carrot Cake~ This recipe has been perfected over time with distinctive fillings and our cream cheese frosting. 8″ short-$32.  Contains walnuts & coconut.

Bird’s Nest Cake~ Back by popular demand! Our milk chocolate cake is baked with tiny chocolate chips, filled with our velvety fudge crème and finished with a layer of light chocolate frosting.  The entire cake is hand piped with small ‘twigs’ and the center is indented slightly, of course to hold room for some pretty speckled chocolate eggs.  Mama bird is perched on top, as you might expect. 8″ short-$30.

Bunny Face~ Our most requested combination ever, that we think it can appear on every holiday menu.  Light and airy French vanilla cake is filled with raspberry compote layered with vanilla creme filling and finished with our signature butter frosting.  It will be simply frosted in a pretty pale color with the entire top being a whimsical bunny face.  8″ short-$26.


BRUNCH BREADS:  Each loaf runs $6.75, regular size.

Cherry Almond Poppy Seed- Contains almonds.

Blueberry Citrus

Raspberry Chocolate Chip

Special Sammies~  We’ve taken our signature sammie recipe [think whoopie pie, but better], tinted the butter frosting in the center and then once sandwiched, we’re rolling the cookies in festive sprinkles.  So not only will you have the chocolate and vanilla creme sammie flavor that you love, you’ll have an incredibly decked out treat as well!  Minimum order 1/2 dozen box, $7.  

Abe’s Bunny Blend~  Our budding baker is taking a break from his nearly world famous cookies and teaming up with a serious creative mind [his mom] to bring you a very fun holiday snack mix.  Generous half pound bag, $5.  Nut free!
