As always if you are looking for something specific make sure you order ahead of schedule so you can be extra sure we have it in store for you!
We are here, but we need your support! So please make sure you have Mixin’ It Up on your list of places to support through these strange and challenging times.
We are honored to serve you and can not wait to see you all again! While we cant hug you (yet!) we can not wait to see your smiling faces (even if they are behind masks!!!)
Somehow Easter apparently has snuck up, and is right around the corner. If you are like me, you haven’t been keeping track of the days or weeks (or month) and if you are also like me you probably haven’t been out of your yoga pants in a good long while.
I have to admit, I have not been looking forward to Easter this year, because it is my all time favorite holiday. We go to my parents house, eat way to much food, and do an outdoor Easter Egg hunt. We laugh, and have a wonderful time, we hug (and what some of us wouldn’t do for a long hug for those we love right about now!) So I have been avoiding the planning of Easter… and than it hit me…
Yes, it will it look different from Easters of the past, yes, but different doesn’t have to mean worse, sometimes different can mean…different. And different can be as good!
I have 3 beautiful children, who need me to be help them navigate this scary time and to make Easter special, so that is what I am going to do for our family, and my hope is for yours as well.
We will be opening up for Curbside pick up for the Friday and Saturday before Easter. April 10th and 11th from 9-2 pm. You Must call in your order, 320-259-7105, we are asking people place their orders by Wed so we have an accurate estimate of what to make 🙂 If we don’t answer we will call back so make sure to leave a message.
We have a limited menu, but we are so incredibly grateful to be able to be a part of the Easter Season with you and your families! Together, we are all stronger, and together we will pull through these challenging times and come out on the other side of this with a much deeper appreciation for the things we took for granted before.
We look forward to serving you through this holiday season! And seeing your smiling faces again!
While we work towards understanding how to approach the days ahead, and making sure that we are looking out for our employees, families, customers (who lets acknowledge we feel like you are also our families!) and the community at large, we have been faced with the question of how to best keep everyone safe and yet, still provide safe and yummy breads and desserts for those who would like them.
Curbside~ Ideally, we would love for as many people to utilize this option as possible. We understand that this a different way to shop, but it is the safest way to shop as we approach the need to socially distance ourselves to keep the most at risk safe. We would love for you to utilize this option. Our number is 320-259-7105.
Online Shopping~ If you would like to shop online we have provided a coupon code of $5 off with the code “baked” and have added several new items that are now available online. Orders are sent out on Tues, Wed and sometimes Thurs, depending on SpeeDees ability to get the orders to you before the weekend.
In Store~ for now, we will be closing in store visitors during these hours. Our selection will be focused on bread, as we know its the time to stock up, cupcakes and muffins. If you are looking for something specific it is a good time to call ahead to ensure we have that.
With all of us sticking together we will get through these times, we will do what Americans do best, which is stick together, link arms and help one another out.
In the meantime we will do our best to support you, as we know you will do your best to support Small Business and for that we all have a lot to be grateful for.
With so much love and a grateful heart~ Jessi, John, and Staff.
When we all ban together, we are stronger and healthier. We know that there is a lot of uncertainty right now, we our families, with our health and with our futures.
We are a small business, who is locally owned, with children of our own who are being quarantined as well. We are feeling that same sense of amazement, nerves, and uncertainty, so in this we are all together as one.
One thing we are certain of, is that we dont need to add one more stress to our lives by not being able to find Gluten Free food on the shelves in stores, and we can not sacrifice our families health by not giving them the food they need to be healthy. We have breads for sandwiches, buns, desserts and mixes. All items are ALWAYS celiac safe.
With the promo code: “Baked” you will receive that $5 off your order.
We will be shipping out on Tues, Wed and Thurs each week to ensure you get your food in a timely manner, and as fresh as possible.
Finally, please remember, as a local gluten free bakery, who specializes in serving your family and their dietary needs, your support and purchases are VITAL to us right now. There are many small businesses that will not make it through this crisis, and we are asking you to consider doing your part in helping to support our business as we face times of uncertainty in the future.
At Mixin’ It Up, you our customers are always are first priority. We always strive to do our best to serve you and your family the best, freshest, and awe inspiring gluten free breads and desserts in Minnesota.
We understand right now, there is uncertainty about the safety of eating out, and we want to ensure you, we are taking every precaution needed to keep you safe.
We have also added during this time, FREE CURBSIDE PICK UP!!!
We understand you may not feel comfortable coming in the store, and exposing yourself to the potential of getting sick. We respect that, and want to do all we can to make sure you are still getting your treats AND staying safe!
Simply call the store 320-259-7105 and place your order over the phone (you will have to pay at that time) than drive up to the front of the store and we will run your order right out to you! Its that easy!!!
Of course our store will be open and operating as usual for those who would like to come in and browse, our hope was to give people the alternative to ensure they weren’t missing out on all things Gluten Free, if they were feeling uneasy about going into a public setting at this time!
So, give us a call, 320-259-7105 and make sure you are stocked up on your gluten free supplies.
Can one small business make a difference? Do you ever wonder what the impact of small business is on a community? Have you ever stopped to think about what would happen if the spirit of small business faded out in the wake of the Amazon, and instacart world we live in?
I know it feels good to support local, or at least that is what all the ads used to tell us, but how often do you actually stop to think about your buying power, and your ability to support your local businesses. Whether it is a bakery, or some other unique small business that sets your community, your town, your state, apart.
It is not always practical to support local, we know that, but have you ever thought about what your local businesses do the your communities. The vast majority of small businesses support their community. in many different ways, from merchandise donations, to financial contributions we are always looking for ways to give back to the world around us.
We know it takes many stores to make the world go round, and that it takes both local and national stores to help supply your needs and wants. After all my world would not be nearly as happy without a Caribou coffee in one hand and some tasty cupcakes from Mixin’ It Up in the other!
We all have a certain amount of time, and money, and with that we try to do the best we can with what we have. We know that, and that is why we appreciate SO much when you chose us over the national chains! We know you *can* go somewhere else, though it is a mystery as to why one would, it means more than we could say when you do come in and buy food from a local bakery!
As we journey forth being a small business, with our eyes towards the future and our hearts ready for whatever adventure awaits us, we ask you our customers, to please make sure that you are supporting us, your local gluten free bakery.
For so many small businesses, one or two rough months could mean the difference between being here for the long haul or not, We see it all around us again and again as many small businesses shut their doors.
When you add the on additional challenges those of us with food allergies, sensitivities and food sensitive diseases face, it is downright challenging to find safe places to eat to start with and most of those stores who do serve the food allergy community are in fact small local businesses in Minnesota, who do so because they love their community and want people to have a safe place to go and eat.
While we would love it if you would consider putting some of your shopping habits, whether weekly, monthly, or somehow consistently towards shopping with Mixin’ It Up, we ask that in general you would remember that it is the heart of small business who uplifts and supports so many other things in the surrounding communities. So when you are able, if you could, would you consider adding supporting those local Celiac Safe places to your “to -do” lists consistently so we can continue to serve you and your families for many years to come.
Each year we get more customers, requesting more and more yummy goodies! We are always so honored to each of you who decide to make Mixin’ It Up your hometown bakery, whether you are right next door, or you meet us at one of our Delivery Locations (and we love all of you who drop by other stores are products are in to keep supporting local throughout so many communities!)

Weddings, oh the joyous and wondrous celebrations they are! The blending of 2 families together, the joining of 2 lives together, and the exciting beginnings, oh, and let us not forget…that cake!
I love me some good weddings! I still get all sentimental everytime I look at my own wedding dress hanging in my closet, and yes that was 15 years ago and it is still there. I even tried it on a while back and danced around in it with my children. It was silly, but it was so much fun! There is so much joy, and hope in the adventure of life, and celebrating with family, friends and food really could not be a better way to make the start of a life perfect.
As a bakery owner, we have had the blessed opportunity to be a part of many weddings, showers, and parties. As many of you know, we love all the festivities that go along with it.
Some of the most cherished times, for me, is when I am asked to do a wedding or shower of a friend or family member. That way I also get the added fun of seeing and hearing all the oohs and ahhhs over how yummy gluten free can be! I love that by the way!
For me, this summer and upcoming fall, I have had the privilege of being a part of my nieces upcoming wedding. From cupcakes to cakes, Mixin’ It Up will have had the opportunity to cater them all! It has been such a joy to bring our love of all things gluten free to family members far and wide. I inserted a photo of the cupcake tower we made the lovely bride, for one of her showers, and what a fun and yummy day it was!
So if you have upcoming wedding plans, and are wondering where to go to get a wedding cake, or cupcakes, we are the place! We love to be a part of your celebrations and help to make your memories even more sweet!
Call us at 320 259 7105 and lets make your wedding beautiful.
Do you know we do this? Several times a year, we roll up our sleeves, get a little messy and have a great time teaching you how to frost beautiful cakes!!
Have some friends, a daughter, or what about some family members you want to spend a little extra time with creating some memories? This is a great way to make that happen!
From the first stages of learning how to master a piping bag, to the final stages of a completely and beautifully frosted cake that is uniquely yours, this is a way to make that bucket list dream come true!
Call and sign up today, you will be so glad you did! 320-259-7105
Classes are located in a Celiac Safe facility at Mixin’ It Up Bakery
When one thinks of an autoimmune disease, they dont usually align that word with celebration. Typically, I agree, however there are times when perhaps celebrating is not only appropriate but frankly needed in the face of life’s journey and challenges.
May is Celiac awareness month, and for this one month, the light of Celiac and autoimmune disease in general signs just a little brighter and it gives a platform to use to educate people on the challenges, symptoms, struggles and triumphs of Celiac disease (yes there are some joys, like not feeling sick all the time once you know what you are eating is hurting you).
More people are getting diagnosed with Celiac, and as we all know, many Americans live with undiagnosed Celiac disease and suffer without knowing or understanding what this disease is doing to their bodies.
When we started the gluten free journey in our own world, in our family, few people had really heard of Celiac, and even worse, most people thought that Gluten Free was some sort of fad and buzz word. While it has taken some time and A LOT of education, more and more people are understanding what the disease IS and what it is not.
It is not made up, it is not something that can be “taken lightly” and it is not something that you can “have just a little of” (no you can not have just a little gluten in something you will get sick!)
As the month of May comes to a close, and the battle for many lives on day after day, we wanted to take a moment and remind you of a few things. The most important is that you do not battle alone. Across the state there are more and more Celiac safe facilities that are working to make sure your food is safe. There are communities of people who are battling the same things day in and out as you are, and there is continuously more awareness around what Celiac and other autoimmune disease are and do our bodies.
Most importantly: there are people who care, really care, just come in to the bakery and you will find people always on staff more than willing to share a smile and a listening ear (sometimes some advice).
We must keep fighting the battle of awareness for our kids, grandkids, family members and ourselves.
Finally, there are many things to be grateful for, because in the moment Celiac disease is frustrating, but it doesn’t have to be the definition of our life… (it is not the explanation point, only a comma in life’s storybook we are living) we still and always get to chose the kind of person we are, the kind of life we life and the gratitude in our hearts, and the joy, kindness, and compassion we get to share from our life experiences on to others.
Battle on Celiac Disease warriors, Mixin’ It Up Gluten Free Bakery, and others like us are here not only as a place to provide you with safe and healthy (and tasty!) food but to link arms with you and remind you, you never have to battle alone. There is support, and there is hope…Always!
