sweet treats for your sweetheart
Happy Valentine’s Day! We love any holiday that celebrates love and important relationships. To make this Valentine’s Day extra special we are offering a variety of decadent desserts, including 4-inch layer cakes in White Chocolate Rose Ganache or Vegan Chocolate Ganche. These beautiful cakes are great for a party of two! We also are making special Valentine’s decorated cupcakes, a heart topped Raspberry Chocolate Cheesecake Bar, and a rich Vegan Raspberry Chocolate Truffle Bar. Our complete holiday menu can be viewed here. We are taking special orders for Valentine’s Day until Monday, February 11th, but sometimes we sell out even before the cut off time—it’s never too early to place your order!
Our Winter Menu is now in full swing! On this menu we’ve introduced a new breakfast cookie, the Vegan Buckwheat Buckaroo, which is a great cookie to start the New Year. This buckwheat based cookie is full of crunchy sunflower seeds and sweet tart dried cranberries. It’s also soy and top 8 allergen free. For those of you who have been following Gem since our early years, on this menu we’ve brought back our classic Vegan Coconut Banana Bar with a new and improved recipe. It’s moist and fluffy and full of delicious tropical flavors! In the dessert department we are making Red Velvet Cupcakes filled with tangy cream cheese mousse and decorated in silky vanilla buttercream. And for our vegan friends we have our Vegan Pink Tuxedo Cake, which is chocolate cake filled with raspberry jam and decorated in our naturally bright pink raspberry frosting.
In addition to these standard flavors, we are happy to work with you to make the fall cake of your dreams! Visit our desserts page for more information about special flavors and ordering deadlines.
