We are heading the Elk River and Maple Grove on Nov 23rd with Pies, Buns, Rolls, Desserts! We know if you are like us, and are busy and dont always have time to call when we are open, this delivery we are trying something a little new, so that means be patient with us as there may be a few kinks to work out but we will get it done!

Now you can go to our “Shop” and order all of your items for delivery HOWEVER in the comments box make sure you write that we are delivering to you and at which location!

Next type in FREETOME in the discount tab and this will automatically remove shipping charges of $10.

We are working to make this easier, and more efficient for you, our customers! Make sure you order BY NOV 19TH to get it delivered!!!

As always you can call 320-259-7105 and place your order by phone, and after all you get to talk to me, so that makes a phone call worth it 🙂 but we wanted to give our customers a few more options

 

Make sure you remember:

Elk River we are at the Home Depot parking lot at 9am in a white truck

Maple Grove we are at the Pier 1 parking lot at 10am in a white truck.

Make sure you remember to meet us as we drop off quickly and move to the next location!

Looking forward to making this happen once again!

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!

Call us at 320 259 7105 and lets make your wedding beautiful.

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!!

Me oh My, I want PIE!

It is a fact that we “eat” with our eyes. When you think of the ultimate dessert, do you think of something hearty, light, fruit flavored? Or something in between?

When I think of the ultimate desert; immediately the pairing of chocolate and peanut butter come to mind. Our Peanut Butter Chocolate Ganache Pie is the Alpha of all pies. From it’s delicious oreo crust, to the peanut butter filling, or if like me; you LOVE the rich, ganache topping; this is the pie for you!

Image may contain: food

 

This showstopper will surely be the centerpiece of any special gathering. When you bite into this decadent pie, you are tasting a little slice of heaven. The semi-sweet oreo crust is paired with a creamy, peanut buttery filling. Then you add on the luscious, ganache topping; topped off with exquisite peanut butter frosting accents and sprinkles of our deluxe peanut butter crumble. What more could you ask for in a hearty, decadent dessert that will surely please any guest.

 

Be sure to stop in and pick up your scrumptious showstopper for your next gathering. We have a limited supply of these on hand; don’t let this amazing pie walk out the door without YOU. Call ahead to place your order to receive your pie just in time for the holidays

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!)
