______________________________________________________________

On to the sweets!
Please note, the following Mother’s Day menu items will be available ONLY on Saturday 5/9.

Signature cakes!  A special for this menu only, we’re offering some of our signature cakes in a 6” single layer version [8″ tall is typically the smallest size you can order signature cakes in.  Perfect for a gift or small gathering, each cake will serve 3-4 guests].

~ Razmon Delight:  our newest signature cake starts with a raspberry vanilla batter, is filled with mascarpone lemon creme and finished with a touch of raspberry infused cream cheese frosting.  $17.   

~ Strawberry Margaretta: to our strawberry cake batter we add margarita mix,  fill the cake with a lime curd champagne creme and finish off this creation with a pale green vanilla bean butter and a dusting of flaked sea salt.  [All ingredients in this cake are non-alcoholic].  $17.

~ A Pie from Boston: classic vanilla cake is generously filled with a cooked vanilla custard and ‘frosted’ with a sweet chocolate ganache.  $17.

Cupcakes! 

Peanut Square: We couldn’t resist adding these jems to the list. Vanilla cupcakes w/ vanilla creme filling, butter frosting and the frosting completely covered in freshly ground, salted Spanish peanuts.  4 regular size cupcakes, gift boxed, $13.

Chocolate Blackberry Lavender: this is a new creation just in time for some sunny spring weather!  Dark chocolate cupcakes are filled with blackberry compote creme filling and then frosted in the prettiest shade of lavender buttercream frosting- which has been infused with both lavender flowers & blackberry preserves.  This combination is so lovely and so unique!  4 regular size cupcakes, gift boxed, $13.

Hummingbird:  if you’re familiar with the iconic hummingbird cake flavors; banana, pineapple, cinnamon & pecans, you’ll be pretty excited to try our version, topped with edible wafer butterflies! 4 regular size cupcakes, gift boxed, $13.

•Box of 6 macarons- $12.50 (two each of lemon, white chocolate, and orange cream)

Lemon Sandwich Cookies:  These little gems have been a favorite for almost 14 years here at the bakery.  We traditionally only let them out at Christmas time but after their standing ovation on our Easter menu, here we go again.  Two lemon shortbread cookies are sandwiched with a zesty lemon creme filling and finished with a candied lemon piece. Refreshing and addicting.  $10, 1 generous baker’s dozen box.  

Abe’s Cake Slice:  prepare yourselves for someone new cutting and filling cakes!  We’ll keep him on single layer cakes to start.  🙂  Vanilla bean cake, lemon curd creme filling & cream cheese frosting.  Simple spring colored sprinkles on top of each piece. $3 per slice.

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 [jen@bettersweetbakery.com] 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!

DECADENT CUPCAKES:
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.

~Milk chocolate cupcakes w/ fudge cheesecake crème filling & double chocolate cocoa butter frosting

 

SPRING CAKES:
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

 

SWEET COOKIES & TREATS:

Lemon Sandwich~ Sometimes we just need a cookie.  Enough said.  Always a best seller during our Christmas holiday, we’ve brought this recipe out of the vault.  Two zesty lemon shortbread cookies filled with lemon cream and topped with a candied lemon wedge and sparkly powdered sugar.  Minimum order 1 dozen box, $11.

Oat-maties~  Brand new from the kitchen!  These are gems are Bettersweet’s take on the forever loved oatmeal creme pie. Oatmeal, creme… but no pie.  You’ll be okay.  Who ever hear of an oatmeal pie???  Minimum order 1/2 dozen box, $8.  

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!
