In addition to our catering services we operate a Holiday “pop-up” bakery featuring delicious treats for each holiday.  A lot of people ask, What is a “pop-up”? Pop-up retail, also known as pop-up store or flash retailing, is a trend of opening short-term sales spaces, similar to a Sees candy shop.  All our “pop-ups” feature a large variety (25+) of scrumptious cupcakes  in addition to creative seasonally inspired goodies.
