Beverly Hills and the new Black

Beverly Hills sometimes gets a bad wrap as being elitist and snobby.  We have quite a few customers who call over to our side of Los Angeles and want speciality cakes.  Most of the folks we deal with are quite lovely.  It could be because we provide a sweet service.  Speciality cakes are all the rage lately.  We don’t have any pictures of Steve’s speciality cakes on the site, but quite a few are posted on our Facebook Page.  If you have a need for a speciality cake, then please give us a shout. Is this a trend?  Are speciality cakes the new black?  We’re not sure, but you guys challenge us with every request.  Bring it on!

Bridesmaids

What a controversy this movie has stirred up among women! Some women feel as if all women should support the movie to send a message to Hollywood that women go to the movies too, not just 14 year old boys.  Other women don’t want to go because they feel like the movie is too raunchy and they want to support ‘good’ movies.  I have not seen the movie, but I plan too.  I so rarely get out, my sweet partner, Steve, will be watching our daughter while I enjoy an extremely rare night out.  We say however you feel about this movie, order some cupcakes, grab a drink and talk about social responsibility with your girlfriends.  Or just dish about anything you want! Being in Momland all the time, I realize the thing I miss the most is my girlfriend time. Have a great weekend ladies.

Happy Mother’s Day

Mardy’s Munchies would like to wish every single Mom, Stepmom, Grandmother, Aunt etc a very Happy Mother’s Day.  There are not enough words in the English Dictionary to describe how amazing my mom is.  We’ve tried to give tribute to Steve’s Mom, Mardell.  Yes our little bakery was named after her, Mardy for short  – hence Mardy’s Munchies. We pay tribute to both of them. I am lucky to still have my mother with us, but Mardy passed away a few years ago.  We toast our Moms and all Moms today and every day.

If you like it then Yelp about it!

We are in awe of Yelp. We admit it.  Our bakery is old meets new in every way.  We bake old fashioned recipes, but twist them into new concepts.  We embrace new technology to market and get the word out about our bakery.  We embrace square, facebook, twitter and recently discovered the power of Yelp.  Now most people only Yelp or review an item if they are unhappy, but we have been pleased to discover that people actually take the time to post something positive if they really loved what they purchased.  It’s amazing how powerful the internet is.  We invite you to Yelp about your experience with us.  We love getting feedback, it makes us better and you happier.
