Yes, everything is scratch-baked on-site. Scratch-baked means our cakes are made from flour, sugar, butter, oil, chocolate, or whatever basic ingredients they require – not from a package cake mix. It also means that we make all of our own doughs, like puff pastry, danish, strudel and pie doughs, rather than purchasing them ready-made.
Crixa Cakes does not accept table reservations.
No. Crixa does not currently ship its products.
Crixa’s use of pure ingredients and slower hand-made processes isn’t new or trendy – it’s the way our better tasting baked goods have traditionally been produced. Crixa uses organic ingredients whenever they meet our quality standards and are not price-prohibitive.
