A Sweet Addition to Cape Ann: New Bakery Cake Ann Opens

A Sweet Addition to Cape Ann: New Bakery Cake Ann Opens
Saturday at The Commons
Gloucester, MA, January 21, 2015 Cake
Ann  www.cakeann.com  , a new scratch bakery
featuring fine cakes and pastries using the best ingredients, will open its doors at 214 Eastern
Avenue this Saturday, January 23rd at 8am. The newest retail resident of The Commons
Gloucester, Cake Ann will feature a daily batch of fresh cupcakes, cookies, scones, and its
signature “Kouign Aman” pastries.
The brick and mortar location is the next step for pastry chef Inga McCarthy, who began Cake
Ann in the tiny kitchen of her home in Rockport. Since starting the business as a vendor at the
Rockport Farmer’s Market last year, Cake Ann quickly made a name for itself with a variety of
unique cupcakes and a small French pastry called the Kouign Amann, a buttery and sweet flaky
cake that soon stole the show. “We started with twenty on the first day and were sold out in the
first thirty minutes the market was open,” says McCarthy. “I doubled the batch each week, and
we’d still sell out within the first hour. People were coming to stock up for the whole weekend.”
At McCarthy’s new Cake Ann bakery, the daily menu will include her signature creations, as well
as a selection of cookies, muffins, scones and quiche made fresh daily using the highest quality
ingredients including organic flours, butter and cream, Valrhona and Callebaut chocolate and
eggs from Seaview Farms in Rockport. The shop will also feature fresh brewed coffee from
Atomic Coffee Roasters of Beverly.
McCarthy says it was their weekly appearance at the farmer’s market that introduced her to the
bounty of local farms on the North Shore. “That was the unexpected surprise,” she says. “Being
there every week helped us build relationship with so many local farmers.” Cake Ann’s baked
treats are a reflection these locally grown partnerships, featuring whole wheat flour from Alprilla
Farms in Ipswich, carrots from Seaview Farm in Rockport and seasonal fruits and vegetables
from Arrowhead Farm in Newburyport.
With the expanded offerings at the new storefront, McCarthy won’t abandon her roots. Cake is
still at the forefront of Cake Ann’s menu, and the new shop will offer custom cakes for events,
celebrations and weddings. Orders for standard size cakes require 48hour
notice and can be
reserved by visiting the store or calling 9788654100.
“We’re excited to meet a whole new group of customers in our community,” says McCarthy.
“And we’re thrilled to be building our business here on Cape Ann.” Cake Ann will be open
Saturday from 8am to 4pm, Sunday from 8am to 12 noon, and Wednesday through next
Saturday from 8am to 4pm, with expanded hours in the coming weeks. The shop’s official
Grand Opening celebration will be held on Saturday, February 6th.

Nichole’s Picks 1/23 + 1/24

This post should really be about how my comcast/xfinity cable + Internet hasn’t been working consistently for the past couple of weeks….but, rather, I’ll just throw that out there as an explanation for the fact that I missed a post yesterday and am only giving you one option for a weekend activity.  On that note, however, please refer to Joey’s post from yesterday highlighting North Shore Kid’s awesome list of sledding destinations!

My pick for the weekend is something that I wrote about several times last winter….the pool at Cape Ann’s Marina Resort!   I always take advantage of the school vacation week packages and purchase a 3 month membership during the longest part of the winter!

The kids love the pool…and, I’m not going to lie, I love that I can sit there with friends and have a drink while the kids have a blast.  Another win is that the food is great too…and reasonably priced.   Monday is “1/2 Price Appetizer” Night.  So, throw in a hummus platter and some chicken tenders and “dinner” came to just over $11!  If you don’t want to purchase a pass,  there is simply a $10 fee per child to enjoy the pool.
