We always start celebrating Mother’s Day early around here. The moms, grandmas and special women in our lives look forward to this time of year, when our talented artists begin creating our special Mom’s Hats. We don’t suggest wearing these creations, they are much more fun to eat. These adorable individual serving treats are made with a sugar cookie base that holds dark chocolate mousse surrounded by passionfruit mousse, all covered with a velvety chocolate finish, a marzipan ribbon and chocolate flower garnish.
Of course, the Mom’s Hat is a great addition to Mother’s Day celebrations, but we also like it for springtime luncheons and tea parties. The good news is that you don’t have to wait for Mother’s Day to give one a try. Our Mom’s Hat is available now through May 29th in our cafes and at Town & Country/Central Markets, Metropolitan Markets and PCC Natural Markets. Make sure you have this adorable bonnet for your mom by calling one of our cafes. Please allow 72 hours advance notice for special orders.
While winter tries to linger, we know that spring is actually sneaking into view as crocuses, daffodils and cherry blossoms come into bloom. With optimism for the vernal season we offer the Lemon Raspberry Scone, Strawberry Croissant and Pear Ginger Muffin.
The Lemon Raspberry Scone strikes a nice balance between sweet and tart, with plenty of red raspberries in the middle and drizzled with a lemony glaze on top. Our open-face Strawberry Croissant is made with tender croissant dough filled with pastry cream and topped with sliced strawberries. Admittedly, the Pear Ginger Muffin was also available during winter, but, like our puffy coats, we just can’t part ways with the juicy pear and spicy ginger that make this muffin a perennial favorite.
Roll out of your winter slumber and into spring with these delicious pastries, now available at our cafes as well as select grocery stores and coffee shops around town.
