DO YOU WORK IN A NUT-FREE KITCHEN?
Please be advised our sweets are not made in a nut-free kitchen. Though we do our best to keep all our allergens separate, we do produce products in the same kitchen that contain dairy, eggs, wheat, soy, and nuts. We have never had an issue, but because we bake all types of desserts, using gluten and nuts, we cannot 100% guarantee that there aren’t traces of these elements within our kitchen. We are extremely careful when it comes to dietary requirements, but if you have an allergy we must advise you to use your discretion. Please inform me at the time of order if you do have an allergy that I need to be extra cautious about.
WHAT FLAVOR OF CAKE DO YOU HAVE?
Tons of flavors! The list is constantly expanding as well, so check back often. You can find the list HERE
THESE LOOK GREAT, BUT I DON'T SEE WHAT I AM LOOKING FOR.
Not a problem at all! Just let me know your idea and I would love to try to create it for you! I’m always up for a challenge.
WHY DO YOU ONLY OFFER BABKAS DURING THE HOLIDAYS?
If Girl Scout cookies were offered year round would they have the same allure? Just kidding!
In all honesty, babka making takes over my entire kitchen and workspace. It’s a difficult and time-consuming process, and a real labor of love for me. Dough takes time to proof and rise, and my kitchen needs to be at a certain temperature to do that. So basically when babkas are being made it shuts down all other dessert orders. That’s why babkas are only offered for a few weeks out of the year. Come back here around the holidays (Christmas & Hanukkah) to get your order in!
BUT I WANT TO ORDER BABKAS FOR AN EVENT AND ITS ONLY JUNE!
Hey I feel you, babkas for an event totally makes you a rockstar! If you are interested in a bulk order I would be more than happy to shut down the kitchen and work on babkas! However, it must be a bulk order, not just a few loaves. Please keep in mind, because I don’t make babkas all year, I don’t always have all the ingredients on hand. I would need some notice in order to track down what I need. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out and see if we can make your babka dreams come true!
WHAT ON EARTH IS THIS BABKA YOU SPEAK OF?
I’m glad you asked! You clearly aren’t a Sienfeld fan! They dedicated a whole segment of an episode to babkas. YouTube it, it’s hilarious! Anyways, it’s an amazing dessert bread made with a sweet yeast dough and a rich chocolate or cinnamon filling marbled throughout the bread. It’s this magical combination of being both light and dense all at the same time! It’s rich, it’s decedent, and it’s the hero at any party or as a holiday gift. You can almost be certain to find it in a Jewish bakery, but today they are popping up everywhere. Somehow through the years, I have become known as the Babka lady during the holidays, and I really can’t complain. I’ve been called worse! I currently offer chocolate or cinnamon.
WHAT DOES ALOHA-LOVE MEAN?
Technically speaking it means “Hello love,” which is how I greet pretty much all my friends! I chose Aloha instead of your standard Hello because Hawaii holds a special place in my heart. My family is from there, and I spent most of my childhood there as well. Everything Hawaiian is deep in my soul and it only makes sense to incorporate that into my business. I do everything in life with the spirit of aloha.
CAN I GET A QUOTE ON AN ORDER?
Yes! Please email or text me with the date of your event, number of guests, and desserts you are interested in. If you have pictures, please feel free to add that as well and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
