On Mardi Gras day, Tuesday, February 17, 2015, starting at 5pm, Short Street Cakes, Asheville’s source for all-natural, scratch-made, birthday cakes, wedding cakes, and cupcakes, will celebrate the 6th anniversary of the Cake Shop with a dance party and raffle to benefit enrichment programs at Hall Fletcher Elementary School.

The Southern-style Cake Shop will also be celebrating a big change on the horizon: the business has expanded its lease to include the retail space next door to the Cake Shop (formerly Wood & Spoon) and is now seeking a buyer who will purchase Short Street Cakes and take the business into its next phase of growth.

More info about the sale of the business and a detailed statement from the owner can be found HERE. Interested parties can contact the owner at Jodi@shortstreetcakes.com for an overview.

Meanwhile, the Mardi Gras Party is an opportunity for Short Street Cakes to thank the community for their continued support with live music, a benefit raffle featuring prizes from local businesses, and free Birthday Cake, Cocktails, and Mardi Gras Beads!

Handmade, all-natural, traditional Southern King Cakes, complete with a baby trinket hidden inside, are also available at the Cake Shop through Mardi Gras, February 17.  The cost is $25 for a Medium sized cake (serves 15) and $48 for a large (serves 30).
