Happy 4th of July!!!!

I can’t believe it’s July already! So crazy.  4th of July is Mr. Connor baby’s birthday so we will be closing at 2 so the whole country can get ready for his fireworks show!  Just to keep all my girls at the shop frantic we have 2 new drinks this week AND a pie special! New for the month of July and August we have a MOCHA SHAKE!!!

Coffee cubes, frozen yogurt, espresso and enough Ghiradelli chocolate to make Willy Wonka proud make up our creamy frozen concoction!  And for those who are not into caffeine and chocolate (who are those people? I don’t know I am just assuming there are one or two of them…)

Homemade Lemonade with a swizzle of Raspberry Syrup! Lovely to look at, tart and refreshing to drink! (Even the ice cubes are lemon and raspberry!)  Limited time only so treat yourself while you can!

Our 4th of July Pie Special is KEY LIME PIE in our signature Coconut Crust for only $13! Available at this price thru Friday-this is an 8″ pie.  (P.S. The Key Lime Pie is the bright yellow one!)

Press-wise we’ve gotten some attention lately! http://www.wrightsvillebeachmagazine.com/flash/2012-7/flash.html#/12/ WBM graciously did an article on some pies in town-it was great fun!  And on July 6th we will be featured on Channel 14 in Myrtle Beach and on http://www.youtube.com/user/AroundCarolina we will be featured but NOT UNTIL the 6th! Coming out in Goldsboro and Pikeville http://flipflashpages.uniflip.com/3/33168/151694/pub/  we have our Best Blueberry Pound Cake recipe-thanks Cindi!  And lastly, I was interviewed by http://southernfoodways.org/ who are in the process of doing an oral and photographic history on bakers across the South who ise the old o of baking! What an honor!  Speaking of SFA I got to meet another SFA fan and honoree BOB GARNER! I got to have his book signed and feed him! Which, by the way, the book is fascinating.

It was another marathon wedding/retirement/birthday weekend but this time EVERYONE ordered cakes-it was a LOT of cakes! I was very slack and took nary a picture-sorry! 

Shirts are here and going fast-get on it! And, please welcome our newest work of art by Aunt Donna of Illinois!   She made us another masterpiece to make our chairs comfy and our shop homey-thanks Aunt Donna!

Happy 4th everybody! Stay cool!
