Custom Mini Donuts for the Broadway Hamilton Cast + Crew: Behind the Scenes!

Our Bites were in the Room Where it Happens - literally, as we were asked to cater custom desserts to the cast and crew for Hamilton on Broadway! We love all of our Bites on Broadway, but we've been waiting a whileeee to make personalized mini donuts for this one and we were not throwin' away our shot. Here's a little behind the scenes -  We start to make the custom menu for all of our Bites on Broadway by thinking about the main imagery within the show and listening to the soundtrack. This was a pretty last minute order and we only had one day to prep, but luckily we already know this one pretty well and have been sitting...

Custom Mini Donuts for Beetlejuce on Broadway!

Beetlejuice the Musical closed on Broadway last Sunday and we gave them the fright of the lives with some custom mini donuts to wish them Happy Trails. Nothing says Congrats on a successful run on Broadway (and then some!) like custom themed dessert based off of the musical. Beetlejuice is an incredibly visual Broadway musical, and we had fun coming up with the designs for this menu first. This is a little bit out of the norm for our creative process, since we usually want to come up with the flavors/menu first when we make custom desserts for Broadway shows.  After we had the designs mostly figured out, we listed the the Broadway cast recording about 100 times, and came...

Winter Bite Box of Mini Donuts Now Available!

With the holidays over, we are so excited to launch our new Winter Menu for the best desserts of 2023!  We were inspired to make a dessert menu of the most delicious mini donuts that would warm you up through these chilly months. We took inspiration from warm drinks, like coffee and matcha - plus some earthy spices like lavender and cardamom. Plus, everybody knows that our carrot cake donuts are to die for so we had to bring them back as a Winter highlight.  Here's the rundown -   We've done the coffee coconut flavor before at Smorgasburg and it was a crowd favorite. We can't wait to bring it to the masses in our Bite Box.  Vanilla base with a combination...

Holiday Mini Donuts are HERE! (and on sale!)

The most wonderful time of the year is only made more wonderful by one thing - mini donuts. This year we were thinking of a theme for our much anticipated Holiday menu and we were inspired by something else we feel really strongly about - COOKIES. Every year when they were growing up, B + Sam (co-owners + cousins) would have one day with their moms, grandmother, and cousins to make literally hundreds of Christmas cookies. This menu is really close to our heart and we hope it brings you some holiday cheer. Here's the rundown - This gingerbread mini donut is inspired by the gingerbread mollasses cookies that Sam's mom makes. They are rich, velvety, moist, and have a...
