Batch Bakeshop changes focus
This West Central bakery is shifting gears from holding regular storefront hours to using the shop to host workshop, cookbook and other clubs, and additional activities.
The bakeshop is available to rent for private parties. And wholesale and special orders, including wedding and special occasion cakes, are still offered. But, beginning this month, owner Mika Maloney is no longer keeping the storefront open for set business hours.
A handful of $40 workshops are already listed on the website at batch-bakeshop.com. Maloney said she’s particularly excited about the monthly Eat Dessert First cookbook club, which is $60 per month and includes a cookbook – or $340 for six sessions or $600 for 12. It meets from 6 to 8 p.m. on the first Wednesday of the month.
Batch is also offering a Dessert of the Month Club for $400 per year. The bakeshop is located at 2023 W. Dean Ave. Call (509) 413-3759.
