Behind the Scenes at the Bakery: August Summary

August was a super busy month at the Curious Cat Bakery. From pop ups to new flavors, a lot happened and I thought a quick round up in case you missed any of it would be helpful. And since I am a bakery owner after all, I thought doing that while baking made sense. Ready? Here's all that happened in August:   Pop Ups August started on a great note after a super successful pop up for Harry Potter's birthday at Book + Bottle. If I ever needed encouragement to fully embrace the dorky part of me who loves a good theme, you guys gave it to me at that event and I don't know if you're ready for what's...

Oddly Satisfying Moment: Relaxing Cupcake Decorating

Ok, this might seem weird but I'm just going to say it: watching people decorate cakes is super relaxing to me. Am I the only one who thinks this? I can't be! There's just something very soothing about watching someone go through the steps of making something ordinary really pretty. To illustrate my point, here's an oddly satisfying moment of me decorating a cupcake. I dare you not to be strangely entranced by it! Stay curious, Natalia PS: If you'd like to see more bakery videos, head over to the Curious Cat Bakery YouTube channel.

There's definitely crying in baking

Not my brightest moment, I must admit, but I want to share it with you anyway because I think we can all learn something from it. What Happened That Sunday I was scheduled to have a pop up event at a local coffee shop. People had been preordering their treats all week and they were especially excited about the vegan donuts I had been advertising. It took me years to figure out how to make vegan donuts that tasted just like the real deal and I couldn’t wait to share them with my customers. I made donuts all week long as practice....

Hosting a Harry Potter Themed Pop Up

This should come as a secret to absolutely no one but I'm a huge Harry Potter dork! So for Harry Potter's birthday I decided to partner with a local bookshop and wine store here in St. Pete called Book + Bottle (which you should totally check out if you haven't already, by the way. I'd like to think it's the kind of place Hermoine where would hang out) and do a Harry Potter themed pop up. Curious Cat Bakery brought the themed desserts (from peanut butter cookie dough golden snitches to Deathly Hallows cookie sandwiches), Book + Bottle brought the butterbeers and a Harry Potter inspired wine tasting, and you guys brought wands, themed shirts, masks (sigh, 2020) and a whole...

Making Disney Inspired Desserts

It's no secret that I'm a Harry Potter dork but what I'm an even bigger dork over is Disney. Main Street USA is my happy place. If I'm having a down day, you bet I'm watching some kind of Disney classic as a pick me up and if you see me singing along with a big stupid smile on my face while I drive, it's probably to some Disney tunes. Yep, that kind of level of dork. I just love it. So I couldn't help but get inspired by some of my favorite Disney movies and make some desserts. Snow White Anyone else getting major Snow White vibes here? Apples, witchy set up, dreamy flowers🍎🔮🌾 and the phillo crust in...
