The Bake Shoppe, a branch of Main Event Productions, specializes in baking rich pastries and custom cakes made from scratch. One dozen fresh strawberries draped in rich milk chocolate delight loved ones, and personalized cakes deliver messages from “I love you” to “The treehouse password is marbles.” Choose from three luscious cake flavors: red velvet with cream-cheese icing, dark chocolate with chocolate ganache and cocoa-cream-cheese buttercream frosting, or sour-cream almond cake with vanilla buttercream frosting. Cake buyers can also request add-ons such as chocolate shavings or make 8-inch cakes heart shaped to present sweethearts with Valentines that will be 100 percent more edible than those comprising paper, paste, and glitter. The Bake Shoppe makes all cakes to order, so Groupon holders must schedule pickup times in advance.
The Bake Shoppe
While other branches of Main Event Productions coordinate locations and decorations for weddings and other celebrations, the chefs of The Bake Shoppe blend batters and whip frostings to create a spectrum of baked goods. Customized cakes celebrate weddings with tiered layers clothed in fondant or with whimsical designs for groom’s cakes. Special-occasion cakes can be shaped like banjos and rubber duckies or piped with frostings that spell out “I love you” or “The tree-house password is marbles.” Specialty fillings, such as chocolate raspberry ganache and caramel, complement classic white cake or distinctive cake flavors such as sour-cream almond and red velvet. Other confections, such as macaroons and fresh strawberries draped in rich milk chocolate, round out The Bake Shoppe’s menu of sweets.
