News From the Commune Bakery
Commune would like to tell you all the new and exciting things happening at the restaurant. Just last month the bakery participated in the Virginia Zoo’s First Annual Cake-A-Thon!
Our entry was based off the zoo’s beehive and the importance of bees to everything we do here at Commune.
We made a parsley cake with goat cheese buttercream dyed with kale juice! The decorations are candied garnish greens and flowers from our backyard garden, and we made bees made out of popcorn dyed with a turmeric glaze! There was also a small graham cracker beehive with caramel honey glass dripping down the sides.
BAKED WITH LOVE
As you know, Commune is very committed to sourcing as much as we can locally. Whether that means making a cake out of parsley from the garden, or sourcing sesame seeds for the brioche buns. As the baker, this is exciting because it forces us to change the menu frequently and not rely on classic ingredients. We have been trying to figure out how we can best inform the public of these changes and we are currently expanding our online presence. We have updated the website to make it more convenient to place bakery orders.
Currently on the menu we have chestnut cookie sandwiches with honey buttercream. We also brought back the much loved corn cookie with spicy glaze, and there will be some new additions this weekend for the holiday.
