Bring on the cake…wedding fun

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!

jessi wedding 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!

Blessing others with FREE PIES!

Every year Mixin’ It Up chooses several different families in Minnesota, that you our customers nominate, and blesses them with holiday pies. Image result for pie giveaway

We all know someone who has fallen on hard times. Maybe you know someone who just got diagnosed with Celiac disease, and are struggling to figure out the holiday season. What about a mom who is single and trying to make ends meet. Perhaps a family member who is dealing with an illness that makes the holidays harder to do get through all the baking.

We are asking you, our customers and friends, to nominate families who could use an extra step of cheer in their holiday this year. We would love to partner with you to make this happen for some of our local families.

We are asking from you, please email us their name (and we would also love to hear if there is a story you would like to share as to why they are being nominated). You can go on Facebook to tag people, send us a private message or even give us a call. Our hearts desire is to bless those in need and to partner with you in doing it! What a great feeling for this, the most magical time of the year!

Lets make someones season better, and a lot tastier! We will chose winners on Tues Nov 20th, so now is the time to get nominating!!

Rice Craft Fair, what a wonderful weekend

Image result for thank you

What a wonderful weekend! The sun was shining, the birds were singing (well it might have been me singing while enjoying the sunshine, but we will go with birds, they sound better!) and we had a fabulous time getting to know and talk to so many of you.

We had about 1,000 people or so come and stop by our booth at the fair. Sold a lot of food, and had a great many laughs with our customers. It was so fun to meet so many of you who said “well I have heard of your store but hadnt had a chance to get in there yet!” And serve you probably some of your first, and tastiest, gluten free goodies.

Our hearts are continually grateful to you for all the support you give us, as a small business, who hand makes ALL of our products, you show us such gratitude for our hard work which just makes us work even harder to bring you the best tasting Gluten Free food you can find in Minnesota (and across the nation now that we ship).

Now, we will kick up our feet, sit and sip some coffee and dream of wonderful and tasty foods to make for you THIS WEEKEND, FOR NATIONAL BAKERY DAY!!!

Love to you all, and gratitude in my heart ~Jessi Brinkman (owner and goofy facebook live girl!)

Love Supporting local, make a difference without spending a dime…

When it comes down to it, we believe most of us would rather be supporting a local business. We see the sayings “support local”  all over, and it does make us feel good to know that when we make a purchase those dollars dont go to some huge box store but to a family, to employees who live in our town, and back into the community.

There are a few fun ways to support usImage result for i love small business

  1. Leave a Review! Had a great experience, liked the taste of something, appreciated that everything in the store was handmade by 2 people baking their little hearts out?! Well, leave us a review!!! They mean the world to small business
  2. Tell others about us. If you dont need Gluten Free, but you know people who do, please tell others about us. Word of mouth is so important. Small businesses cant afford to do a lot of advertising, so this is our most valuable form of getting our name out there
  3. Share our facebook statuses from time to time. Tag people who you know eat Gluten Free

All these things add up to helping a small business STAY IN BUSINESS. And it makes a world of difference in keeping our doors open.
