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!

Summertime ~ Takin It Easy

Don’t you just love summer. The sun on your face, the smiles and squeals of your children running through the sprinkler, or jumping into that swimming pool. What about the grill outs, camp outs, and long summer nights by the campfire… ahhhh.

One of my favorite memories growing up as a child was going to the beach. Oh the days of laying in the sun, back then of course with no sunscreen in sight!, and cooling off by jumping in that refreshing water. Oh yes, and the treats! Those I loved too.

We would pack a cooler filled with sandwiches, snacks and all sorts of yummies and just sit back and enjoy the lazy days of summer. Ahh, I can feel the waves even now.

Sometimes for those of us who are gluten free, or have other food allergies, a day out, whether it is at the beach, at the ballfield, or on a weekend camping trip turns into endless hours of prepping, planning and oftentimes frustration. You are not alone my fellow food sensitive people!!! I am right there with you!!

We can not control the world around us, and we can not control others peoples understanding of our sensitivities, so pack we must! For all occasions, for all celebrations, and for the safety of our loved ones!

Before you start gearing up for that next round of camping, ballfields, and family reunions, make your life easier and give us a call. From breakfast through dinner we are here to help!

Wake up to cinnamon and caramel rolls, or coffee cake muffins. We have dollar buns, hot dog & hamburger buns, and fresh loaves of the softest bread around. What about pizza over the campfire, and mix that with our garlic bread and cupcake special and you have yourself a gluten free meal for $20.00. And do not forget grab and go cakes, cupcakes and cookies!! All here for you to enjoy! Don’t worry, if you cant stop in, we also ship!!

We want to help share in the journey, and this is our way to help make some of that a little easier! So give us a call, and we can help to make packing up those coolers a whole lot more enjoyable!

Hip Hip Hooray! Its National Donut Day!

Weekend Brunch Special (1)

Remember the days of running down to the local gas station and grabbing a donut that melts in your mouth?

How about a camping weekend with mom and dad, or grandma and grandpa, and opening up a bag of those cake donuts or donut holes that were just the icing on the camping trip cake? I do!

I also remember the feeling I had in the pit of my stomach, after going gluten free, standing in front of a display case, staring at rows upon rows of that glorious donut goodness and realizing that there was a distinct possibility that I would never wrap my hands around a warm, melt in my mouth, donut again. 

When we opened up Mixin’ It Up, our goal was to recreate those food memories for you, and your family, and do it Celiac Safe so there was no worry EVER, about your family getting sick.

We knew to make that dream come true, donuts had to be a part of the menu. Deep fried, sink your mouth into, memory provoking donuts has been our mission. We can say with these donuts being our Number 1 summer seller, we are pretty sure you love them as much as we do!

Stop in June 7th for National Donut day and enjoy buying 6 donuts and getting 6 free! Or stop in anytime all summer long, and be ready to sink your teeth into the best deep fried GLUTEN FREE donuts in all of Minnesota!  Remember if you live to far away, we overnight ship these amazing donuts as well!

Good Bye 2018, Hello 2019!

Happy New Year Everyone! As we close out 2018 and embark on 2019, we tend to look back at the previous year and remember all of the good times the year has brought us. One thing that we like to do here at Mixin’ It Up, is look back on all of the wonderful people and families that we have met over the past year, learning about our customers and hearing the stories that you all share with us.

It brings true joy and happiness to our hearts to hear the stories that you all have to share with us and how Mixin’ It Up has helped you, your family or someone you love.

We not only take pride in the work that we do and the products we provide to our customers, but we also LOVE looking back on the stories that you all have shared with us and seeing the impact we have had on our community.

Sometimes in the midst of the holiday craziness, we don’t always get the chance to hear these stories not because we don’t want to hear them, but because we are in the kitchen baking the days away making the best possible products for our customers both in store and those who place orders with us.

The one thing we have tried to invest into our customers is time. Time to hear their stories. Time to work with them to offer them a variety of products that can and do fit just about any type of special allergy need or preference. We want you to know that we strive to do our best, and to be the best to each customer who calls our store or walks through our doors. Why you ask? Because YOU matter to us and we want serve you to the very best of our abilities.

Before we plunge into 2019, we would love to hear from you. If you have a story about your Ceiliac journey and how you came to find Mixin’ It Up, or you have had a positive experience with us, we would love to read your stories. If you have a story or a positive experience with Mixin’ It Up or the owners/staff that you want to share with us, please leave a comment below this post, or leave us a comment on our Facebook link to this post.

Thank You all for an amazing 2018! Without you, Mixin’ It Up wouldn’t be possible. Thank you for all of your trust and support over the last two years. We hope there will be many more to come.

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!
