Springtime in Denver is reason enough to celebrate, But May also has quite a few fun occasions we're looking forward to. As usual, we've got a lot of fun things planned, and we're excited to tell you all about them.
Mother’s Day – Sunday, May 8
Don't forget Mom on SUNDAY, MAY 8. We will be open on Mother’s Day if you need to pick something up. And look for some sugar cookies for Mom and pastel sprinkles that will make it nice for Mom. Or place an order and get exactly what Mom wants.
May 4 Be with You
We know it's not "technically" a holiday; it is a great reason to celebrate with something out-of-this-world sweet. We’ll have galaxy macs and some on-theme sugar cookies. Keep an eye on our social media feeds for pics! You can also place an order if you need something for your May the 4th celebration!
Cinco de Mayo
Any reason to make fun sugar cookies – margaritas, sombreros, and maracas - is a wonderful day in the bakery. We’ll also make some taco macarons and festive sprinkles. Be sure to stop in on Thursday, May 5. And if you're planning something special, place your order, and we'll have it ready!
BYOB – Bring Your Own Box
Many people have asked if they can bring their own box for cakes, cupcakes, and goodies. And the answer is YES! If it makes it easier for you and we add one less box to the trash, we’re thrilled. Let us know when you place your order, and we can make arrangements.
Celebrate your graduate with something extra special and sweet. We’ve made custom graduation cakes, unique cookies, cupcakes, and more! We’re happy to give you some fun ideas or try to make your ideas come to life.
Don't forget Happy Bakeshop for your wedding cake – well, really any kind of wedding dessert. Our team loves a wedding cake, or a custom wedding dessert buffet made just for you and your sweetheart. Get in touch with our Wedding and Events Team here: Events@happybakeshopdenver.com
