Short Street Cakes announces holiday menu, hand-pie fundraiser

Press release from Short Street Cakes

After a bustling Thanksgiving season that saw the addition of house-made pies added to their production line, Short Street Cakes, Asheville’s all-natural, from-scratch, Southern-style cake bakery, launches its 2013 Holiday Menu.
Specials include a traditional Buche de Noel, Eggnog Cake, Chocolate Peppermint Cake, Lavender Tea Cakes, Orange Chocolate Gateau, Decorate-Your-Own Gingerbread People, and Rum Pecan Bundt Cake, as well as classic pies like Sweet Potato, Pecan, and Pumpkin. Short Street Cakes brings back its Maple Bacon Apple cake for Christmas, as well as the beloved Piecake- a whole pie baked inside a cake.

Short Street Cakes is also launching a brand new line of hand pies. The fresh, flaky pastries filled with scratch-made Cranberry Orange, Blueberry Poppy Seed, Caramel Apple or Ginger Pear fillings retail at $4 each or six for $20. And for all of December, Short Street Cakes will donate $1 to the Hall Fletcher Elementary School Pawnstorm Chess Team for each hand pie that is sold!

Hall Fletcher Elementary, located just up the hill from the Cake Shop in East-West Asheville, in addition to being Asheville’s smallest public elementary school and a magnet school for science, math, and technology, serves the highest proportion of minority, low-income, and special-needs students of any school in the city. As such, the benefits that chess brings to children’s self-esteem, intellectual development, and life skills could not be more critical. Short Street Cakes has chosen Hall Fletcher’s Pawnstorm Chess Team to be its community partner this school year.

Please check the website at for more information and holiday menu pricing. Please allow 48 hours for orders, or stop by and see what we have on hand! The Cake Shop is open 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. daily, and 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. on Sundays.

Please note that Short Street Cakes will be closed for the holidays Dec.25 – Jan. 1.
