This past week, we had a blast attending Birchtree Catering's party as they celebrated becoming the exclusive caterer at beautiful Awbury Arboretum. There were many excellent vendors there, and we debuted our gluten-free Sasquatch brownies to rave reviews.
We can't say enough good things about the team over at Birchtree Catering (their motto is "locally minded, seasonally inspired"), and obviously Awbury Arboretum is a lovely wedding venue as you can see in these photos by Cathie Berrey-Green of BG Productions. We love delivering wedding cakes to Awbury and we are proud to be on their preferred vendor list. If you're looking for a hidden jewel of a venue in Philadelphia, I think you have just found it!

It's probably understatement to say that I'm in love with Vault & Vine, a gorgeous new cafe and floral studio in East Falls, Philadelphia. Vault & Vine is an expansion and re-imagining of Falls Flowers, a long-time favorite floral shop. They have have delicious coffee and pastries, curated gifts and of course stunning plants available for purchase. On my first visit, I could not resist purchasing about 10 plants for my house and a birthday gift for a friend. Totally worth it.
I was so inspired by Vault & Vine that I made them this succulent cake for their grand opening this past weekend. I think it fit in really well with the space.
Congratulations to owner Peicha Chang and her whole team on the amazing new cafe. If you haven't seen it yet, what are you waiting for? Head over there and binge on the amazingness!

We are extra proud of our September Cupcake of the Month, because it's our very first 100% vegan cupcake! It's made with vegan vanilla cake, house-made strawberry jam and vegan peanutbutter icing. We added some peanuts on the top to add a little bit of crunch. We love the flavor, and we hope you will too!
Going forward, we'll be expanding our vegan options, and also adding some gluten-free options as well. It takes a lot of testing to make sure everything tastes amazing. It makes us happy to know that many more people will be able to enjoy our treats.
We are proud to annouce that we have partnered with Inspire Energy to switch to 100% renewable electricity here at Whipped Bakeshop. For a long time, we were wind-powered through a program called Peco Wind, but it was discontinued. After that it became difficult to find affordable renewable electricity (and to get out of our yucky fossil fuel contract). But it's all a breeze from here on out!
We feel so good about saying goodbye to dirty electricity and saying hello to clean wind power! Thanks to our rep Dawson and the team at Inspire for finding a way to make renewable energy affordable and easy for small businesses. We are proud to partner with you.
