orange-blossom-cake-smEaster calls for cute, decorated baby cakes. We've got new treats coming out of our new kitchen, too — keep your eyes open!

If you've never tried our baby cakes (not just yummy, but so darn cute too), Easter's as good an excuse as any. Many of them are vegan, too! But don't stop there. We've also got some irresistible banana caramel cupcakes (note that these aren't vegan), and glazed lemon poppyseed bundt cakes. Oasis shoppers may have already happened upon the wonders of wheat-free muffin tops. You just may want to give them a try if you haven't — but you'll be able to grab some at the West-End store now too. Who knows what else will travel between stores now that we've finally landed in our gleaming new central kitchen? We're so excited for all the new creativity we've made space for in these new facilities. Keep your taste buds tuned for more to come!
